Music is an integral element of a film. Though, there have been great films made without any musical score, there can be no denying that music elevates storytelling. And before scoring any film it is important to decide a theme track, a piece of music that will define the whole film. This article is about 10 such best movie theme songs that completely suit the film’s story.
1. “Stay” by Hans Zimmer – Interstellar (2014)
‘Interstellar’ isn’t about just a bunch of astronauts searching for a new home planet; it’s a story of a father, who unwillingly leaves his daughter behind, not knowing if he’ll ever see her again. A quest of a parent to return to his waiting child and a child’s effort finish his job as early as possible. Hans Zimmer’s lovely title theme describes the emotions of a child who requests her father to not leave her. The music makes you fall in love with the movie and you’ll definitely cry like hell when the theme plays for the final scene.
2. “Goodbye” by Jan AP Kaczmarek – Hachi: A Dog’s Tale (2009)
Every time I watch this film, I can’t stop my tears. With the central character being a non-speaking pet, the entire emotions and soul of the movie and its concept strike you via this beautiful theme. Composer Jan AP Kaczmarekhas combined his track with the cinematography so well that it breaks your heart when you feel through Hachiko’s heart and mind. This theme plays in different tone throughout the movie depending on Hachi’s feelings based on his daily experiences of his life that only revolves around being close to his master. Goodbye is Hachiko’s heart and soul; take that out and the film loses its most important piece.
