First, watch the incredible clip below to see just how powerful music can be in movies.

THE POWER OF MUSIC IN FILM - How music affects film

Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet has one of my favourite soundtracks of all time! Luhrmann very carefully selected a range of alternative-pop and soul songs to convey the array of emotions throughout the story. I’ve selected a few of my favourite tracks below and I’d like you to think about the following:


  • Why did Luhrmann choose this track for the movie?
  • Where do you think this track would fit in the story?
  • Which emotions does the track make you feel?
