On today’s episode I discuss the songs used in television and musicals. Now to be clear I am not talking about the score or background music. I am talking about songs that the characters hear and sing. So “Say A Little Prayer” from My Best Friend’s Wedding would be part of the conversation but “Highway to the Danger Zone” from Top Gun would not.
On today’s episode I will be discussing music in televsion and film. This will only include songs heard or sung by the characters, as I will be saving scores and soundracks for another day.
musical: a play or motion picture in which the story line is interspersed with or developed by songs, dances and the like.
soundtrack: the music or dialouge from a film available on a commercial recording
score: the music played as background to or part of a movie, play, or television presentation
