I really love a movie where the soundtrack fits perfectly into the scenes. I especially like a soundtrack that has a deeply moving or haunting theme that is repeated over and over again. There are many movie soundtracks filled with hit songs that play great when you listen to the CD alone, but I’m talking about soundtracks that complement the scenes in the movie and are meant to enhance the feel of the visuals.
One of my favorite movie soundtracks is the Shawshank Redemption. The music is quite sparse and monotonous but works really well. When the aerial view of the prison is first displayed, a single brooding cello begins to play. The feeling that is conveyed is that of loneliness, hopelessness and hopelessness. This cello part is repeated throughout the film and performs incredibly well.
Another brilliant soundtrack is A Clockwork Orange. The music was intended to have a futuristic sound even though they were arrangements by very old composers such as Beethoven. This soundtrack stands out very well on its own but works particularly well with film. In particular, the music “The Thieving Magpie” is used as the background for a brawl between rival gangs. The timing and editing of this scene are masterful.
The Godfather is pretty much the gold standard of movie soundtracks. Almost anyone can hum the theme to the Godfather, and the melody comes back repeatedly throughout the movie. My astonishment lies in the feeling it evokes every time it is played. Sometimes it seems to convey honor, or the passing of time, or the loss of something important, or even closeness to family. Either way, he hits the target over and over again.
Sometimes a movie soundtrack can get on your nerves. Another that comes to mind is the movie “There Will Be Blood” starring Daniel Day Lewis. The main theme of the film is a piece that moves like a centipede on speed. It’s anxious and full of movement and this music could probably be used to torture someone to madness. At first it seemed to work well with the opening scenes, but after the 5th, 10th, and 20th time I was crawling on the walls!
Some films stand out for this song which seems to punctuate or sum up all of this. I have 2 favorites that come to mind. ‘The Exorcist’ only played Mike Oldfield’s song ‘Tubular Bells’ in one scene and it was only a few seconds but it left an indelible mark on the viewer. It was known as the “ Exorcist Theme Song ” after the film was released. The second film is “The Mothman Prophecies”. At the very end, when the credits start to roll, there’s a song that seems to sum up all the supernatural and spooky feeling of the movie. It’s called “Half Light” by TomandAndy and it’s wonderful!
Are you making a movie or video? Do you want your soundtrack to stand out with this memorable song? My suggestion is to do a specific search for royalty free music, such as “royalty free progressive rock music” or public domain background music. ”The more details you get, the better your results. You can try one. royalty-free premium programs, websites that offer quality over quantity and easily downloadable songs.
