Musical Artists vs. Music in Motion Pictures

I watch a lot of late night television, and my shows frequently have musical guests.

The vast majority of the time, I do not care for the the music, and I skip the musical acts.

But I also watch a fair amount of movies, and I usually like the music in movies.

Does my reaction seem weird to you, or do you feel the same way?

I find it a completely different experience listening to stand alone music versus listening to it plus watching an act or movie.
Interstellar for example, I thought the score was really excellent but downloading it and listening to it on it’s own just didn’t have the same effect and the music seemed quite repetitive and boring without the visuals. Same with Daft Punks Tron.

With most bands, there are a lot I wouldn’t buy the vinyl for or watch on TV but hearing them at a concert is a totally different experience and found myself unexpectedly jumping around Big Smile
Depends on the accompanying mood, memories, setting, people present and visual or other stimulus.

It’s not weird. Musical acts on tv are usually pop music stars. Movie music is not usually written or performed by those acts. It’s usually written by people who specialize in writing music for movies and tv. Or, the movies use popular music from the past that is selected for particular scenes you are watching as you listen to the music. Listening to current pop musicians on stage is a different experience than listening to movie music or specially-selected older music while watching a movie.

I do not watch TV at all, but I’m aware of “How they sing” crap shows. I feel the same way.
But… I do watch a lot of movies. Music in a movie is essential and must “fit”.
I didn’t ever rate movies by soundtrack, but well remembered are Pulp Fiction, The Rock, Natural Born Killers, Blue Velvet, Easy Rider, Back to the Future series, Trainspotting, Lord of the Rings and many more.
That music will last forever.

They’re different genres. Eg, I’ve got the “Dead Space” soundtrack, which is good listening, rather orchestral. Just got a Hans Zimmer concert which is pretty good, too.

John Tesh(!) has 2 good ceedees, “Pure Movies” and “Pure Movies 2” (1 is better).

The “24” soundtrack (seasons 1-3, another for seasons 4-5, again, the first being better) is downright awesome.

I’ve got quite a few “soundtrack” ceedees that are their own entities. Better if you’ve seen the movie (eg, “Jumper”).

The one for “Star Trek: Nemesis” is beyond words. Amazing…

“Regular” music is just that, a collection of songs released at the same time in one batch (ie, the album). It may be “self-contained”, even tell a story (“The Wall”, ferinstance), or be rather random.

A lot of my classic albums on vinyl, when rereleased on ceedee, often contain bonus tracks. All too often, those tracks just don’t seem to “fit” the original album.

In contrast, OSTs generally have that underlying “theme” connecting all the tracks.

Actually, about the “Nemesis” soundtrack, the physical/hardcopy/whatever ceedee version I got is my reference, as far as amazingness. Versions I’ve seen online <coff>, with lots more tracks, seems out of order, random, and completely disjointed. So be choosy over which version you’d get.

Some movies I can’t understand the dialogue over the music. Annoying.

I’m a Star Wars nerd almost entirely because of the music. I have the complete 1-6 box set and listen to (dare I say study) them frequently.

99.9% of the music I listen to will never be on Late Night TV —- I left .1% because I have seen Buddy Guy on a few times

You’ll are absolutely write a good musical score in a movie can be an Awesome thing — but to me rarely would I want to listen to it on its own

Usually, the music makes all the difference in a movie. Music plays a significant role in the film because it gives the tone and the plot’s mood. It plays into your emotions and feeling. Let’s take the Titanic film. You felt every emotion of the actors because of the melody. Now, all people associate the song “My heart will go on” with sacrifice and a romantic mood. All girls start crying when listening to this song. The same happens in the commercial video or when creating a travel video. Before the pandemic, I used to travel a lot. I have a Youtube channel where I post my escapes. People like my videos because I create the right atmosphere with the royalty free sound effects music.

Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile Take it however you wish. Wink

BUT be accurate please.

I DID NOT say YOU were “weird”
I answered the question you asked about your “reaction”.

No point in you trying to dramatize my reply. Wink

Your posts on BLF reminds me of a troll named teacher, except I think you're smart enough to not get banned from the forum.  :-)

Whatever…. I won’t even mention what your posts remind me of. Wink

But what shocks/amazes me the most is that you apparently have not been banned. Wink Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

While I think you won't get banned, I'm not sure.

What I am sure of is that you'll get banned way before I ever get banned.

I'm not stupid enough to get banned.  :-)

Did BLF member teacher (from Alabama, USA) actually get banned for being a troll? Maybe you are talking about another „teacher“ but I had come to know him as a courteous and decent guy but out of a sudden he just left the forum. Of course, there might be two sides of the story and I am just not well informed…

Yes, he got banned for being as troll (almost 2 years ago.)  :THUMBS-UP:

Sorry, I don't remember the details.

If you PM Mr. Admin, he might tell you more, as I'm sure he remembers exactly what happened.

Raccoon, I am not gonna argue with you. What you wrote in your last post to me above is ridiculous. You actually do the things you accused me of. Nevermind… you edited that out.

You apparently think you can say & do anything you like…. and then if someone disagrees then you are suddenly the “victim”.
You come across as thinking your opinions are all correct & you can do no wrong.
It is laughable, it really is.

I have gone back & read many of your posts. Your MO is entirely predictable.

I did this after receiving a couple of messages warning me of the games you played on here.

So, giving you the benefit of the doubt; I went back & researched quite a few of your older posts.

The warnings were spot on.

So let’s just agree to disagree… OK??

If you need something to play with, go to K-Mart & buy you a toy.
But please know… I am not that toy. Wink

Regards & the end. ✅

Whatever Raccoon…. it is ShyOne though. Get that part correct please. Please do not confuse me with the person you said was a troll. Facepalm

I have no interest in arguing with you. It serves no purpose & as you know, is against BLF Rules.

Now it's ShyOne.

It was teacher, who was a troll.

You don't get banned for being a nice guy.  ;)

Maybe someone could get a banned-aid, then.

Guys, let me distract a bit with some fantastic original television soundtrack that I can really recommend in times like these…

Handmade music by W.G. „Snuffy“ Walden and to my mind one of the best, unregarded and underestimated soundtracks in the world. I know many people like the big players like Hans Zimmer, Harry Gregson Williams, James Newton Howard, John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith… but this is one I often select for listening.

Yep, The Stand from the 1990s was awesome.

I hear that the recent remake was pretty bad.

They did a remake? Well, some things should better be left untouched as is. The new MacGyver is another disaster in my humble opinion.
