Writing prompt: Songs have played a vital role as background pieces for movie scenes time and time again. In fact, some scenes are remembered more for the song that was playing than the actual scene.
Which song, in your opinion, was best used to accompany a scene from a movie? You know, the one scene that made you double over because the song selection truly drove the point across.
Describe what it meant to you, how it affected you, and why you believe it was a perfect, audiovisual onscreen marriage.
If you’re feeling ambitious, try to write a movie scene with a specific song in your head to revolve the scene around. What picture does your selected song create inside your head as you listen to it? Map it out on paper. Write about whether or not music has helped or hurt movies as a whole. Or maybe we’re getting carried away…
