Movie themes, TV themes. Do they all have anything in common? Are they earworms, unforgettable once you hear them? Some of these are old- I betray my age. How many other pieces of music does one hear once a week, or maybe even every day?

Movie themes are different than scores or soundtracks- a theme is meant to capture the mood of the whole movie or series….it doesn’t necessarily accompany action, it prepares you for the action to come.

I got asked to write a theme once- for Mad Men!- I didn’t make the cut...obviously that did not affect the success of the show. Maybe I should have listened to these a little closer.
