Thank God someone else has noticed the alarming rise of "cloying music" in movies. It is even worse on television. In many series, the background music almost drowns out the dialog. Some directors seem to think that we need to be constantly bombarded by tunes that have nothing to do with nor nothing to add to the production.

Above named film had no music played as the ending credits rolled. Good call. Sometimes folks just want to hear the sounds of what people encounter, like waves hitting the shore, the faucet dripping, footsteps, etc. It may not only show you what the character in the film is seeing, hearing, tasting, touching, smelling, etc, it may put you closer to to what's happening in the movie. If I want to see special effects set to music, I'll watch MTV.

This is off the subject, but based on the 3 comments above, my memory brought me back to the last North Star game I went to c.1992. As I watched the warmups from a seat just behind the goaltender and up high enough to see over the glass, I realized that the muscic blaring from the loudspeakers drowned out what I normally would have heard from the players. I barely could hear the pucks hitting the goaltender, the boards, the glass, whatever. Absent was usually jawing that they do during the warmups. A preclusion 16 years ago to what has infiltrated most of our entertainment today. I won't miss this clap-trap noise at the Gopher football games in the Metrodome next year either as we get to go back outside.
