May Theme: Movie Themes

Think about your favorite movie – what’s the song that brings that movie to mind? What’s playing in that moment where a main character gets the goal? The music binds together images to create the entire movie experience. Next time you watch a movie, pay attention to the sound and when these themes are woven into the storylines. Let us know what you think!
