The music chosen to accompany certain scenes in films can make it instantly memorable. Conversely, poorly chosen music can be jarring, cheesy, and ultimately leave a film becoming quickly forgettable.
This week in Part 1, Bill and Rick dive into some of the awesome movie soundtrack music that has appeared in film over the past four decades. They’ve selected four films that are memorable, due in part to the songs chosen that make an instant impact that is also lasting in their sonic awesomeness.
They discuss what made the combination of song selection and movie scene work so well. The music they chose from these four films span 1979 – 2023, coving Apocalypse Now, Reservoir Dogs, Spawn, and John Wick: Chapter 4.
