For my research paper, I have decided to write about how soundtracks to TV and movies affect their audiences emotionally. I will conduct a poll asking people of various ages and backgrounds their favorite movies and soundtracks. I will ask the following questions while doing research: What makes a good soundtrack? How do certain songs make the audience feel? How would eliminating music from the background or altogether change a movie? I plan on researching award-winning soundtracks that people know, for example The Lion King and how good soundtracks are made. I want to research many more things that will be followed up in my actual paper. I am excited to write and research more of my topic because I am a music education major and want to learn more about different sides of music.
