Day 2 of 10: Soundtracks.
So I can’t tell you which came into my life first; the movie or the song. All I know is, I love both equally. They come together. When I hear the song, I see those boys, and when I watch the film (which is in my top 5) I hear Ben E. King. Only later in my life did I discover that the movie was based on Stephen King’s ‘The Body’ and ever since I have been wanting to read the book, but I have a problem with reading AFTER watching.
So basically what I’m trying to tell y’all is, Stand By Me is my introduction to my love for soundtracks. It’s my first lesson of understanding why the right song is important in a scene, and I have immense admiration for music supervisors and film composers.
And a special shout-out to Hans Zimmer, Elton John and Tim Rice for creating only the best soundtrack on earth: The Lion King Soundtrack.
