A movie is always made better by its accompanying soundtrack. Movies and music have always gone hand in hand to make sure that the viewers are well-entertained. The impact of a movie scene is greatly felt when the theme song that is chosen goes well with it. Viewers easily relate to a movie if the soundtrack fits perfectly.
As important as acting is to a movie, a beautiful and well-fitted soundtrack is also very important. An example of this is the popular comedy movie from the Norm MacDonald’s film, “Grown Ups”. This popular comedy comes with a lot of great actors that made the movie fun to watch but the perfect soundtrack for different scenes made it a lot better.
Some Iconic Movie Theme Songs
Soundtracks are an important part of any movie. Some examples of top iconic movie theme songs that made a great hit after its release are Footloose by Kenny Loggings in “Footloose”. Footloose became one of the greatest hits after its release in 1984. Moreover, I will always love you by Whitney Houston in “The Bodyguard” topped the charts for years.
The theme song Lady Marmalade by Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil Kim, Mya, and Missy Elliott in “Moulin Rouge!” surprisingly topped the Billboard chart for five weeks after its emotional impact in the film. Also, a scene of a funny comedian with a gambling habit from the classic Norm Macdonald movie “Dirty Work” has the soundtrack meshing perfectly with the visual comedy.
In conclusion, soundtracks have their place in films. The way and manner of interpreting a scene can be greatly affected by music. For example, an exciting music could trigger different moods during the movie. An audio soundtrack can signal humor, romance, danger, or even horror, hence preparing the viewer for what is to come in that particular scene.
