There are times when songs in movies really add to the film's mood and all. Listening to the many vocals be it at opening credits or end credits or during love scenes are good and all, but when it comes to songs that were not musicals but I feel really helped the film along. 2 off the top of my head were LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT-72- DAVID HESS, and THE HARRAD EXPERIMENT- 73- ARTIE BUTLER. Both related to the plot as it went along and both immeasurably helped the film.
