According to Wikipedia, Original Soundtrack define as a recorded music accompanying and synchronized to the images of a motion picture, television program, or video game. However, it is ambiguous. Even Wikipedia has various descriptions about this term.
A film without music is nothing. There is no additional mood and tone to help audience discover to the atmosphere of the film. For instance, Ouija will be less scary if there is no surprising music there. Or Snowden would less thrilling when the music didn’t match the film. In other words, we will lack of sympathy if we cannot feel the real situation. And that is achievable when dialogue track, sound effects track, and music track fit the film. But, in this article I refer Original Soundtrack to “music from and inspired by the motion picture”
Nowadays, original soundtrack is widely produced as the additional gimmick to boost he film box-office. Some of them fail but the rest success incredibly. Some soundtracks even downloaded for more than millions time around the globe.
Personally, some soundtracks resonate me, a lot. I think I would be feeling guilty if I didn’t share the same experience to you. So, here they are:
1. Hakuna Matata – The Lion King (1994)
2. My Heart Will Go On – Titanic (1997)
