Magical musical tour : rock and pop in film soundtracks

The popular music industry has become completely interlinked with the film industry. The majority of mainstream films come with ready-attached songs that may or may not appear in the film but nevertheless will be used for publicity purposes and appear on a soundtrack album. In many cases, popular music in films has made for some of the most striking moments in films and the most dramatic aesthetic action in cinema, like Ben relaxing in the pool to Simon and Garfunkel's 'The Sound of Silence' in 'The Graduate', and the potter's wheel sequence with the Righteous Brothers' 'Unchained Melody' in 'Ghost'. Yet, to date, there have only been patchy attempts to deal with popular music's relationship with film. 'Magical Musical Tour' engages the intersection of the two on both an aesthetic and industrial level.
