10 Websites For TV Show & Movie Soundtracks

Sometimes it’s the music that makes the movies. You just have to watch ‘Sound of Music’ or ‘Saturday Night Fever’ to understand what I am talking about. You have to be a Martian not to have heard about either of those two. Then let me throw ‘The Wizard of Oz’ at you, a movie that entered the musical consciousness of a lot of people, as time went by.

Yes, it’s the magic of movies. But even as the movie unspools, music lends a bit of its own too. Just for the nitpickers, let’s use the more precise term of soundtrack. The word ‘soundtrack’ has obviously come from the sound recording on a narrow strip of a motion picture film, which runs with the images. Today, we also know it as a Film Score or more promotionally as OST (Original Soundtrack). It’s music by another name and quite similarly, it can uplift, it can sadden or it can give us goose pimples.

If you have seen ‘Chariots of Fire’, then the opening scene with Vangelis’ score is as energizing as the scene of the athletes. Or take the space imagery that’s shaped by ‘The Blue Danube’ in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece (2001: A Space Odyssey).
