Music, TV and Movies: Songs from Motion Pictures


I’ve always loved music, movies and TV shows. I’m part of the new breed of screenmusic geeks: People who are huge fans of songs playing during TV shows and movies. The importance of those songs is too often ignored.

Some movies and TV shows are able to combine a great script, stellar acting and enchanting music. I can think of a few examples of when the screen combined those three elements: AMC’s Mad Men and HBO’s Entourage are sure picks for screenmusic.

I can think of numerous episodes where Don Draper’s mysteriousness is greatly enhanced with just the right song. On top of my head, I can quickly remember the song by Gordon Jenkins entitled Caravan, playing when he rides the train back home during the very first episode.
