Episode 18 - Do Songs + Score Soundtracks Still Work, Today?

Kristen Romanelli (Film Score Monthly Online) is back to, along with Christopher Coleman, examine the quasi-resurgence of the era-specific-song inclusions in big-budget-blockbuster-film soundtracks.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't and they bat around examples of both.  Lastly, they make a prediction on the future of such soundtracks in the near future.
