Next time you watch your favorite movie, close your eyes and imagine if there was no background music. I'm sure it would be awful, right?

A great movie soundtrack effortlessly blends into the background and perfectly weaves the storyline together. Sometimes the characters don't need to say anything, the song does all the talking.

It's a powerful tool, and if it's well done, these soundtracks will go down in history, even if the movie isn't as loved as it used to be.

Here are 8 movies that have an incredible soundtrack. You're going to be making a new music playlist in no time!

1. Pretty In Pink

Thirty years later, this '80s flick has stood the test of time and outshone all the other coming-of-age romance movies out there. It's all thanks to the movie's screenwriter, John Hughes, who happens to also have a knack for putting together great soundtracks for his movies. In Pretty In Pink, you can hear a beautiful blend of songs that you make you want to jump up and down and also cry in a corner.

2. The Pianist

The movie is based on the life of Polish-Jewish pianist and composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, so it's not a surprise that the movie's soundtrack is full of exquisite classical music. It's not just Szpilman's beautiful compositions that bring tears to our eyes, it's the way director Roman Polanski places the songs in the narrative that make you appreciate this soundtrack even more.

3. Pulp Fiction

Quentin Tarantino's film contains a mix of rock and roll, surf music, pop, and soul songs. If we didn't hear "Misirlou" by Dick Dale & The Del Tones in the 1994 classic film, would we have loved the song as much? But then again, the song really added something special to the movie.

4. The Lion King

Disney movies in general have incredible soundtracks, but The Lion King definitely beats all of them. It's the most well-known Disney movie in the world, and if someone hasn't seen the movie, they at least know all the words to at least one of their songs.

You probably forgot about these next masterpieces!

We Finally Know The True Meaning Of Cyndi Lauper's Song "She Bop" And We're Mortified

I remember dancing like a robot to this song alone in my room, at my friend's house, and in public. The thing is, I wasn't only dancing to it, I was yelling the lyrics, and now I really wish I didn't.The 1983 song "She Bop" reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart in '84, meaning that everyone was rocking out to another Cyndi Lauper hit. The catchy lyrics had everyone saying "she bop, he bop, and we bop. I bop, you bop, and they bop." If you look up the definition for "bop," it means


10 Songs We Should Never Have Sung In Public, But Were Totally Obsessed With Anyway

Everyone has a guilty pleasure, and for me it was songs that weren't "cool" or "appropriate" to sing in public. Singing in front of people is already embarrassing, but there are certain songs you could hum to that wouldn't annoy or make someone uncomfortable. Here are 10 awesome songs from the '90s and early 2000s that wouldn't even dare to sing in public, even if there were no consequences. 1. "Get Down" By B4-4Aside from this music video being extremely unsettling (those facial expressions still make me laugh today), "Get Down" was addicting to sing to (in your head.) It's
