Music: It is the driving force behind a film today. Often called melodramas, music can help to create the mood of a particular scene and can also assist in foreshadowing the plot. It can also be used to elevate the mood of the consumer while watching the film. For example, the theme from Superman makes me feel energized while the theme and songs from the Twilight soundtrack make me feel a bit edgy and depressed.
Being able to have music featured on a film also helps boost popularity of a band. For example, the band Muse has been featured on all three soundtracks within the Twilight saga films. And because of the enormous popularity of the Twilight movies, they’ve now become a household name.
What is your favorite film soundtrack and why? Do any of the songs on your favorite soundtrack hold any personal meaning for you?
