Memorable Film Soundtracks – Record Store Ep. 7
Film soundtracks can make or break a scene.
Huge amounts of effort is put into making sure that sound effects are convincing and recorded well. Some films feature original compositions while others feature songs by big name artists, and even classic hits. The final touches to a soundtrack can take a film scene from good to straight up amazing.
Would films like Jurassic Park or even Jaws be the same without their iconic scores?
