Music does not only influence us when we listen to it, it can also manipulate how we feel during a film.
Most of the time, we may not even realize the impact music has on us while watching a film. Music can imply the mood of a scene, can intensify a horror film or lighten the mood. Both music and film provide the audience with a greater understanding of what is being expressed.
Music and film combined together can make a more powerful statement to the viewer. There are songs that can defy a film and remind viewers of the movie the second we hear it. When you hear the song, "Hakuna Matata", you instantly think of the film "The Lion King". It's a catchy song you know the words to and will always remind you of its film.
