When it comes to the importance of soundtracks, Bernard Herrmann, the legendary composer behind Citizen Kane, Vertigo and Taxi Driver, said it best: "Music on the screen can seek out and intensify the inner thoughts of the characters. It can invest a scene with terror, grandeur, gaiety or misery. It can propel narrative swiftly forward, or slow it down. It often lifts mere dialogue into the realm of poetry. Finally, it is the communicating link between the screen and the audience, reaching out and enveloping all into one single experience."
