|This song, the Call, got me thinking. It made me think about tunes incorporated into a movie and how much impact they can have, especially choice vocal tunes as part of a score. To make myself clear, I'm not talking about musicals and any affiliated music, but like I said: parts of the score that include vocals. So I was thinking of the most effective moments, at least to me, of lyrical songs in a movie.
->Mad World in Donnie Darko
->The End in Apocalypse Now
->The Call in Prince Caspian
->Raindrops Keep Fallin' on My Head in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
->Don't Wanna Miss a Thing in Armageddon
->Evenstar/Smeagol's Song/Into the West in LOTR
I found Mad World, the Call, and Into the West to be absolutely perfect because music is my most fluent language and, naturally, the best means of communicating an idea to me. Anyone else ever have a movie they were watching where a musician seemed to manifest everything the tone of the movie seemed to be stretching to share?
