Impact of music
The impact of music is HUGE. There is some good archeological evidence that music spurred the telling of tales and the passing of culture from generation to generation in aboriginal culture.

Impact Of Music On Society
Music plays an important role in the socialization of children and adolescents. Popular music is present almost everywhere, and it is easily available through the radio, various recordings, the Internet, and new technologies, allowing adolescents to hear it in diverse settings and situations, alone or shared with friends. Parents often are unaware of the lyrics to which their children are listening because of the increasing use of downloaded music and headphones. Research on popular music has explored its effects on schoolwork, social interactions, mood and affect, and particularly behavior. The effect that popular music has on children's and adolescents' behavior and emotions is of paramount concern.
Lyrics have become more explicit in their references to drugs, sex, and violence over the years, particularly in certain genres. A teenager's preference for certain types of music could be correlated or associated with certain behaviors. As with popular music, the perception and the effect of music-video messages are important, because research has reported that exposure to violence, sexual messages, sexual stereotypes, and use of substances of abuse in music videos might produce significant changes in behaviors and attitudes of young viewers.
Pediatricians and parents should be aware of this information. Furthermore, with the evidence portrayed in these studies, it is essential for pediatricians and parents to take a stand regarding music lyrics.
The choice of music, whether it reflects or contrasts with what's on the screen, and a thousand other choices, is extremely complex. Here in indie-land, assuming you're not going to rip off some musical artist's work, those choices are limited.
You still have huge stylistic choises. THE FIRM, a thriller, used an R-and-B score that was extremely effective.
1. Find local musicians and recruit them to write/arrange/perform the music. You have no money, so they keep all the rights to the music and you get "synchronizarion rights."
2. Find public domain music AND public domain performances -- *not* the same thing.
3. Find public domain music and have volunteer musicians play it for you.
4. Purchase "buy-out music" -- one time fee, use it in productions as much as you want.
5. Purchase music rights. The right to have your musicians play a famous copyrighted song will be less than actually having the Rolling Stones play it.
and of course:
6. Create the music yourself. Rodriguez is still doing this with $mega-million movies.
a. "Happy Birthday" is copyrighted.
b. You need written releases for all the music you use, or distributors will not touch your product.
c. Know exactly which frame should have the music start, end, and which moments need a musical accent. for every piece of music you use.
d. Music will enhance your movie, but not "fix" it.
