Consequence of Sound Releases History Of Pop Music In Film

Music blog Consequence of Sound recently published a feature entitled “From Dylan to Daft Punk: A History of Pop Music at the Movies” that covers the full gamut of music in film since we can remember. The site explains:
The mingling of popular music and film has a long history, with artists of all sizes and calibers taking on the challenge. Take someone like Hans Zimmer, who in the seventies worked with The Buggles, only to leave pop music all together and flourish in film work. Or take people like Yann Tierson or Angelo Badalamenti, who have taken memorable film work in Amelie and the David Lynch filmography respectively and become pop icons because of it. But for many artists, film scoring is a mere flirtation with another world, and with it comes varying degrees of success and fulfillment. So, we thought a brief history was in order, covering pop music’s relationship with motion pictures. Enjoy!
The list goes through the years of notable collaborations, such as Bob Dylan’s work with the film Pat Garett and Billy the Kid, or Radiohead’s Johnny Greenwood doing the score for There Will Be Blood. A lot of these mixed media produced some of the most intense soundtracks ever created, which goes to show how much music and sound really adds to a film. What’s your favorite film soundtrack? Let us know in the comments!
