I really don't understand why there's an entry for Cast Away for not using this trope. Thousands of movies don't use this trope. Suggest cutting.

Is it possible to get a slightly more neutral wording in this, or at least a YMMV tag in there sowmewhere? I like this effect, personally.

I second this.

I third. The entry looks more neutral than when I was last here, but it could still use work. Film scores are used to help tell stories, why can't songs do the same? Best example I can think of is the soundtrack for 500DaysOfSummer, which plays a very active role in the story. Tom's decision to move on from Summer wouldn't feel nearly as triumphant if wasn't set to Vagabond by Wolfmother.

What exactly is the difference between the use of this trope and meta-diagetic music (e.g. musical sequences in films that are closely synchronized to the onscreen action) in general? For example, A Clockwork Orange contains several examples of scenes choreographed to music; would that be an example of this trope? I'm a little unclear on the intended definition.

That's called a montage. It predates the 80's by quite a bit.

And yeah, this trope REALLY speaks ill of this practice, even though it's not only GOOD under most circumstances, but much more simple and natural than this article claims. It's just simple synchronization: synching the sound and the video. Just like synching sight and sound in a play—we've been doing it for centuries, and it's not some kind of invented concept.
