Taking things literally: Movie scenes paired with word-perfect songs

There are some amazing soundtracks out there.

Meet Joe Black, The Shape of Water, Call Me By Your Name and Mission to Mars are but a few of my favourites, and of course, anything by John Williams, Hans Zimmer or Alexandre Desplat instantly provides the most amazing mood and emotional resonance to a film.

But no one, and it’s risky saying that because likely someone has, has ever paired movie scenes with songs that directly reference a line of dialogue fronm the film.

That is, until now.

Mehdi (a.k.a. “DrMachakil”) has brought together the likes of Terminator 2 and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring with songs that match them perfectly in the most hilarious of ways, adding a whole other level of fun to movies that often aren’t exactly a mirth-inducing romp in the park.

Watch it, listen and laugh and remember how magical the right soundtrack, even one in jest, can be.
