Music for Films

Goodlifer: Music for Films

“You see, this is my life. It always will be. There’s nothing else, just us and the cameras and those wonderful people out there in the dark.”
– from Sunset Boulevard

I have always loved the movies. As a baby I was swaddled, bottled, diapered and taken by my parents to double features, sometime twice in the same day. This playlist is an amalgam of music from films that over the years have become touchstones, bookmarks to events, places and people.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
