Spotify has really changed my music tastes and preferences, and I do find myself listening to a lot of soundtracks these days. When engrossed in a film, I don't pay much attention to the background music, so its nice to be able to appreciate the musical pieces on their own.
Case in point: When watching Captain America: Civil War, I had no idea how epic some of the background tracks were, simply because I was watching the action scenes so intently, the music just blended in and faded into the background.
After coming back from the theatre, I immediately fired up the soundtrack on spotify. I then listened to it in its entirety through my Fiio X7 => Venture Electronics RunABOUT 2.0 => AKG K7XX set up.
I guess I never realized how much of an impact music has in setting the tone and feel of the movie. Its just an aspect that I never paid much attention to; But I do wonder how I would feel about the fight scenes had they used a different musical piece. Just goes to show you that the musical scores have as big a role as the fancy computer graphics in our favourite movies.
Can you imagine the Civil War Airport Fight scene with Aqua's hit single "Barbie Girl" subtly playing in the background instead of the epic orchestral piece? To be fair, I would totally pay to watch that!
Perhaps its an exaggerated example, but I hope it gets the point across :)
