Soundtrack Addiction on #FreegalFriday

Hello, my name is Kellie and I love soundtracks.  I am addicted to soundtracks.  Some of the best songs I’ve discovered are through soundtracks and Shazaming TV shows.   But what makes soundtracks so special?  Is it the variety of artists or musical styles?  I believe it’s because of how you feel when you watch a movie, musical, or TV show with an accompanied song.  But soundtracks were not developed for feelings, they were actually first created as a promotional gimmick by the movie companies.  Now soundtracks have evolved into a new music type/genre. 

It's only fitting that today on Freegal Friday, we are highlighting some amazing soundtracks.  Use your 5 downloads to start building a soundtrack of your own for life’s big and little moments.
