These movies had music as the hero of the story

Here are some movies where music held the film together and took it to the next level, making it the hero.

Music is that part of our life that is considered to be another language. It speaks of emotions that cannot fathom into words and yes, all of cinema has songs in them but these films are special because of their whole musical album. And no these movies are nothing sort of like musicals. And really in our opinion, they probably deserve a genre of their own. These particular films are ones we picked because their entire music album made us feel things instead of just a particular song.

These albums has the power to overpower you with emotions probably could take you on a ride full of emotions. From energetic to soothing one album could give you a full range. And the people we have to be thankful for are the musicians who made this possible. Albums from some of these films were even more popular than the film itself and with others, they played their part in being a perfect match, one that's made in heaven. But these albums did extremely well and are still very wildly popular, irrespective of how the film was.
