Movie Magic

This week we are once again heading to the movies. If a movie was a big hit in the Seventies, chances are the theme song or major musical number would become a hit too. Several big music stars of the time helped craft movie sound tracks and theme songs with fantastic results. Whether it was Blaxploitation flicks, disaster movies or Bond films, the perfect track could help propel the film to hit status. It would also become indelibly linked to the movie in the collective consciousness. People may not know the title of the song, but no one can hear the opening horns on Gonna Fly Now without seeing Rocky Balboa shadow boxing up those steps. Even now, 25 years after its release. A good sound track makes for movie magic.
