The best movie songs have a way of elevating the cinematic experience. For instance, "Dance the Night" by Dua Lipa instantly transports us to Barbie Land, and Survivor's chart-topping classic, "Eye of the Tiger," still makes us want to grab a pair of boxing gloves and enter the ring. (Step aside, Rocky.)
We can't imagine watching any of our favorite titles without a few catchy tunes in the mix, and according to Adam Grybowski, former Director Of Communications at Rider University, it's all because they add depth and capture the movie's overall tone. He wrote, "It helps shape emotional responses, creates a rhythm to scenes and segments, and comments on the action. Music is often crucial to the experience of a scene and, in some cases, becomes as iconic as the movies themselves."
