The word "soundtrack" dates back to 1928, which is about the time that "talkie" movies were picking up momentum. Talkies were either presented with a sound-on-disc system or a sound-on-film system. With sound-on-film, the sound literally comes from a track on the film itself that contains the sound information, which was how the sound was able to be ...

It's called a Pastiche A pastiche is a style of music [or art] that imitates the style or character of a piece. Unlike a parody, it celebrates rather than mocks the original. Adverts and 'high number' cable channels keep hordes of composers in business by employing their skills at this 'style copying' rather than paying for the original music. After ...

Typically a busy film composer like John Williams will write a condensed score, also known as a short score. This will have at least two or three systems and contain all the important musical ideas, and probably a general idea of the orchestration. This will often be hand-written. He'll pass this to his orchestrators who then produce the full score.

Licensing mostly. Artists often belong to different record labels, and their rights have to be negotiated. Labels could prefer to not the licence a song, in an attempt to sell their own material; single, album, EP, or compilation. Looking in an album leaflet, you might see artist x appears courtesy of x record label for certain licensed tracks.

The key words in the Wikipedia definition are "written", "recorded", and "synchronized". Live music to accompany a silent film is often improvised (rather than written), and it is (by definition!) never recorded or synchronized with the movie. Currently, when you watch a silent film, accompaniment music is usually included as part of the film media or ...

It's probably a joke by arranger Chad Seiter, who also worked on the music for the 2009 Star Trek movie. Jason Michael Paul and Nintendo proudly present "The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses", a concert event that will take audiences of all ages on a thrilling orchestral adventure through one of the video game industry's most beloved ...

There are two that come to mind that fit this description: "Yakety Sax" (originally recorded by Boots Randolph) is the most obvious and became a staple of "The Benny Hill Show" when he chased the ladies around at the end "The Flight of the Bumble Bee" by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov is also often used to indicate fast-paced action in different contexts.

My best guess is Sabre Dance by Soviet Armenian composer Aram Khachaturian. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqg3l3r_DRI By far his best known work, it hit number one on the US Billboard Classical charts three times in 1948 alone. How did it became associated with chase scenes? It's a popular, familiar piece of classical music with a frantic, frenetic ...

This is "Fake It" by Seether. Found by playing the video on my computer and using Shazam on my phone to identify it.

Well, luckily, someone posted an explanation in the comments section of the video "Serial Experiments Lain - Cloudy with Occasional Rain," so go visit it. - https://youtu.be/1TunrW7dRr0 "... the vocal is a prayer to the Hindu goddess Lakshmi.

My favourite place to browse music catalogues is rateyourmusic.com aka RYM. Here is the album you're talking about. You can find related albums from the same genre on the site, browse top albums ranked by users, sorted by year/genre. You can also read personal reviews, lists and ratings, which I think is the most interesting part of RYM.

I believe that soundtracks are usually written as the movie is made, with input from the director. I think that synchronization occurs though cutting the footage of the film to make it match the music in length. You'll also notice that in most scenes, the music is not synchronized because there is nothing to synchronize it with, but a few scenes will stand ...

It's "Are U Man Enough" by Olive Musique.

I contacted the producers and they informed me the song's title is Fear and Loathing In Long Island. They forwarded my inquiry to the artist and he sent me a link to the song at SoundCloud.com/stonahrob. I've yet to try the link, but I think this is a definitive answer to the poster's original question.

Almost always, with this type of show, the soundtracks are entirely sourced from Libraries. Library music companies specialise in generic-sounding music catalogued by 'sound', 'mood' etc making it easier for program makers to source music for their production. The titles are never credited on the show itself & with no title they become almost ...

This is rapper Kendrick Lamar's ironically titled hit "HUMBLE" from the 2017 release DAMN. You can discern the title lyric pretty clearly in the trailer, as well as the distinctive phrase am to the pm, pm to the am meaning "morning to evening, evening to morning" https://genius.com/Kendrick-lamar-humble-lyrics

This is Gymnopédie no.1 by the French composer and pianist Eric Satie (1866-1925). Satie wrote mainly for the piano. Two of his sets of pieces, the Gymnopédies (1888)and the Gnossiennes (1889-1897) are by far his best known works. As far as I can tell, Jincheng Zhang used the version of the piece available from the YouTube Audio Library. There's no ...

Eventually found it, it is "Running not walking" by "Don & The Goodtimes". And awesome guess on the period from Angst, it's really from the 60's.

The song "All For You" was a surprise inclusion over the opening scenes of Transformers 4. It was scheduled to be released on CD as part of the soundtrack, but the entire soundtrack got scrapped over licensing rights. As of right now, the only way to obtain it is to rip the audio yourself from the DVD/Blu-Ray. It's not commercially available in any format....
