Soundtrack – Romantic Comedies

Soundtrack - Romantic Comedies
This is a musical mix you're going to LOVE as our SOUNDTRACK spotlight turns to the sweetest of all genres... ROMANTIC COMEDIES.

SOUNDTRACK is your one hour red carpet ride to the marvellous music of movies and television. Will give you the inside scoop on the songs, and feature the films and TV productions in which they were played – we’ll also catch up when we can to the songwriters, composers, producers, directors and music supervisors attached to the tunes and of course we’ll enjoy the songs themselves. Now, as you might imagine with hundreds of thousands of TV shows and movies made over the years the scope for SOUNDTRACK is massive – so we’ll give each episode an area of focus and shine the spotlight on that. And with Valentine’s Day upon us and what with me being such a hopeless romantic – and maybe a lot like a few of you in needing a little pick me up – today we’re all about ROMANTIC COMEDIES. Indeed it’s a musical mix you’re going to LOVE – with everything from Oscar winning chart toppers to swinging standards, romantically crafted scores to Motown favourites. We’ve got title tracks and awesome end credit tunes, we’ve even got a world record holder sung by the movie’s leading lady herself.
