This includes the innovations of pod favourite John Carpenter, the rise of new modern styles of composing in the 80s from the likes of Georgio Moroder and Michael Kamen, through to the new breed of composers such as Nordic tyros Ludwig Goransson and Hildur Gudnodottir and rock musicians who've turned to scoring films like Trent Reznor and Jonny Greenwood. We also look at classic film soundtracks that use rock and pop songs to enliven key scenes, from Trainspotting to Goodfellas and the mighty Saturday Night Fever, and the art of the Needle Drop when the perfect song meets the perfect film moment.
