Music is powerful. It has the power to make us laugh, cry, dance, and drive faster. It also has the power to make us think, ask questions, and challenge authority. Music can take you back to an easier time in your life, or help you through the challenges you are facing right now. Music can be “of the moment” or “timeless,” but  no matter what kind of music you enjoy, music can be healing and inspiring.

Movie theaters are reopening and it looks like summer blockbusters will be back!  While you look forward to seeing movies again on the big screen, here are some auditory gems from past movies to get you in the mood.  Some are movie theme songs, while others were featured in a film. Just for fun, can you name the movie that featured the non-theme songs on our playlist?
