The movie finished about five minutes ago. It is only you and the guy scooping popcorn off the floor. The girl in the booth even turned up the lights already. You squint as the credits scroll on slowly, through gaffers, artists, drivers, caterers, insurers and assistants. They continue past innumerable thank yous, toward distant locations, until they finally land where you wish they would begin, on the music.
A laundry list of songs, some that you recall, some that were buried somewhere deep in a scene. The real music, the true tunes, the reel soundtrack for the movie. Maybe there are a handful of songs. Or, if Oliver Stone was at the helm, there may be more than 70.
If only I could rig my TiVo to record the big screen. Instead, I resort to rattling them off in my trusted recorder, hoping that I will miraculously remember spellings later when I return home. Or that a bit of sleuthing on the web will fill in the blanks.
If only there were a place where all of these songs were listed. If only the studios realized that 10 songs, half of which were not actually in the movie, does not a soundtrack make.
That was my thinking. This is our answer - ReelSoundtrack. After two years of sleepless nights and shut in weekends, here is my answer to the question that has plagued me for years - what is that song?
Finally, we can name that tune. Hope you enjoy. And if there are any glaring errors or blatant holes in the list, please help us fix and fill. All of these were input manually and I am sure there are a few strokes have gone awry.
Not only can you name that tune, but you can also snag the song by downloading the song from iTunes or purchasing an album from Amazon. We have provided links for both, and both of which will help to cover the vices that fuel future additions to the list, namely Dr. Pepper, ginger peach tea and, when all else fails, sour patch kids. Oh, it is a healthy life indeed. But that is what obsessions are for. And my obsessions, perhaps like yours, are music, movies and TV.
