Thank God, Its Saturday !

Heya there, blogshaala readers. Hope you have been benefiting from the book & movie recommendations from bygone weeks.

But this week, to break the monotonous rut of the summer, I have come up with a new thing  for ya’ll movie-buffs.

Sometimes it’s the music that makes the movies. You just have to watch “˜Sound of Music’ or “˜Saturday Night Fever’ to understand what I am talking about. You have to be a Martian not to have heard about either of those two. Then let me throw “˜The Wizard of Oz’ at you, a movie that entered the musical consciousness of a lot of people, as time went by.

Yes, it’s the magic of movies. But even as the movie unspools, music lends a bit of its own too. Just for the nitpickers, let’s use the more precise term of soundtrack.


The word “˜soundtrack’ has obviously come from the sound recording on a narrow strip of a motion picture film, which runs with the images. Today, we also know it as a Film Score or more promotionally as OST (Original Soundtrack). It’s music by another name and quite similarly, it can uplift, it can sadden or it can give us goose pimples.

So this time, I am going to post a list of my recommended ‘Original  Soundtracks & Film Scores’. Interestingly, this list largely consists of Film Series entries.

Hopefully, I would try to come up with a few list of such types…based upon your response, O My Brothers.
