Old film-noir movies. There's something comforting about watching black-and-white movies, and hearing this kind of music just puts me in a fantasy world. It's a really great escape for me.
I like things that start depressing and dark and end up romantic, and that's what I really loved about 'King Kong.'
That's what I love about those old movies - the music is like a constant companion. Even in scenes that aren't particularly dramatic, like a woman checking her watch, you hear the music as a comment on that action.
I wish I finished music school, because then I feel like I could talk more about the dissonant notes.
I always related my favorite music to the movies.
