Music unites people of every creed and sect. It reaches into living rooms and schools and places of worship. Its vibrations are felt in all corners of the world, stirring heights of passion and excitement as well as tender melancholy and deep reflection.
Whatever its pitch, shape, or tenor, a steady beat and a soaring voice are able to coax a sense of community out of even the most scattered groups of listeners. Music alone can rouse an unequaled intensity of devotion from crowds of people.
Maybe summer is just beginning in your country, the day stretching longer and longer into the night. Or maybe as fall turns to winter there is more darkness in the sky than there used to be. No matter the weather, the time of day, or the general mood in the air, some form of music will touch your everyday. Soft blues for when you’re just hanging out. Big band for the stadiums. Techno for the forest rave. Chamber music for being alone and listening to falling rain. Abstract electronic sound in those moments of intense alertness and focus. Flamenco for the fire of passion. Pop for singing alone in the shower.
Here we reflect that in a selection of movies to warm your spirits, get you moving, and put a fire in your belly.
