Changing Tunes: The Use of Pre-existing Music in Film
Phil Powrie, Robynn Jeananne Stilwell
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2006 - Music - 205 pages
The study of pre-existing film music is a well-established part of Film Studies, covering 'classical' music and popular music. Generally, these broad musical types are studied in isolation. This anthology brings them together in twelve focused case studies. The first section explores art music; it revolves around the debate on the relation between the aural and visual tracks, and whether pre-existing music has an integrative function or not. The second section is devoted to popular music in film, and shows how very similar the functions of popular music in film are to the supposedly more 'elite' classical music and opera.

Aside from the essays I found useful for thinking about vidding, there was a neat piece by Raymond Knapp about music in Frankenstein movies, including Young Frankenstein, which discussed the relationship between music and electricity and made the point that Shelley’s Frankenstein did not use electricity to raise his monster; that conceit is modern and visual. Robynn Stilwell also had a fun chapter about the use of music, specifically vinyl records, in coming-of-age stories for girls, and how the girl collector/boy collector divide plays out in various ways (for example, does the collector listen to the music?). “Male”-type collecting prioritizes the exertion of control over the outside world, whereas “female”-type collecting emphasizes the definition of self through connection to objects that reflect the collector’s subjectivity. Stilwell discusses female record collectors “one of whom feels her collection reveals who she is (as a whole), and another who considers her collection a diary, or self-portrait, and could not bear to part with any of the CDs because they contain ‘too many memories.’”
