I'm listening to the Light Classical music station on my cable TV and Adagio For Strings by Samuel Barber comes on.
Really?
That's not light. In fact it's downright depressing.
I blame you 'Platoon.'

I always get chills when I hear that because of "Platoon." That is definitely a movie that haunts me.

I watched it back in high school for a film class. It has never really left me. Shows the power the right audio gives to visuals.

I had parents who weren't very discerning about what they let their kids see when I was younger, and I saw that movie when I was six or seven. It definitely disturbed me and left a lasting impression.

Dayum, Platoon is a hard movie to watch even when you're old enough to understand what's going on.

Yeah, I've only watched it partially since that first time so there's a lot that I didn't understand that first time and things that (it's possible I imagined them) that still freak me out when I think of the movie.

I have some similar experiences. My childhood memory of certain scenes or imagery in movies is always worse than the reality.

In Spartacus that song was played when two lovers unite after thinking the other was dead. Beautiful:

Aww, that is lovely. And once again proves how music can make a scene.
