With silent films, the scores would usually change with each exhibition of the film, since most were played live. But ever since sound became a prevalent aspect of filmmaking (from 1930's The Jazz Singer onwards) a single soundtrack would be tied in with a film throughout every exhibition. Indeed, musical scores had been standardized and forever associated with the films they accompanied. A trend that seems to have really picked up with DVD and home video however, is substituting alternate soundtracks in order to save a company money. "Stairway to Heaven" had to be removed from Wayne's World when it hit VHS, because Paramount was not willing to pay for the music rights. Often, music rights on home video are much more expensive than on broadcast mediums like theatrical or television exhibition. The viewer cannot theoretically own the television or projected film image, so it is much cheaper. As soon as one can own it on a home format, like VHS and DVD, clearance rights can get very expensive. Wayne's World was an early demonstration of this, but recently this trend has really taken a stronghold on DVD. TV shows like Dawson's Creek and The Apprentice substituted their trademark theme songs in favor of cheaper music. On DVD, and particularly in the horror genre, films like Night of the Living Dead have been given revamped scores. Recently however, the influx of changed soundtracks seems to have reached a peak, with both Warner's Return of the Living Dead, Part II and Columbia's Happy Birthday To Me both receiving altered scores. What is your take on changing a film's soundtrack, be it for money or for trying to appeal to a different audience? Good, bad, ugly, let's hear it!
