How Much Does Music Play into Success...
I was thinking about it and was wondering how many of you think that music plays a huge part in a film being long remembered. Not just initially successful, but remembered for long after it was made. And it doesn't JUST go towards movies, but also television or video games, etc.
1.) Star Wars
2.) Indiana Jones
4.) Jurassic Park (yes all Williams themes)
5.) The Simpsons (Danny Elfman score)
6.) Batman '89
7.) I Love Lucy, Peanuts (Linus and Lucy Theme), Andy Griffith Show, etc.
8.) The Wizard of Oz (off to see the wizard/over the rainbow)
10.) Super Mario Bros.
11.) Donkey Kong
12.) Sonic the Hedgehog
13.) James Bond movies
... just thinking about it. The movies stand well on their own. But when you hear the music, it brings about the "feeling" of the movie and things like that. When I hear the Raiders march, I certainly can imagine all sorts of Indy adventures... it just pumps me up! I think music is an often underplayed importance to any project.
