Music in the Back Seat

November 22nd 2006 04:10

I'm not sure if this happens to anybody else apart from myself, but does the feel of a movie change when you listen to a song during the film that you're already familiar with? After watching Little Miss Sunshine a few days ago the mood of the film was lost when I realised they were playing Sufjan Steven's Chicago.. they were going to California. Only rarely too do they play the song until it hits the lyrics and words come into play. Which makes me ponder? The director should be a creative person totally immersed in their films, why not come up with their own perfectly suited score? An angry teenage angst kid, with lyrics like 'I am angry today, my friends all hate me and I like black clothes, some heavy metal and head banging music and there we have... the perfect accompaniment. I'd go no further than sex scenes though, theres a fine line between singing about passionate love and corny porn.
