The construction of so many contemporary soundtracks out of pre-existing “nostalgia” hits, new pop songs, or, more often, a mix of old and new pop songs, or new remakes of older songs, hasn't been adequately explored by scholars of film sound and music (or of the recent film industry, since the links created by entertainment conglomerates are often at the heart of this construction), especially given the ubiquity of the practice; see, however, the useful essays and especially many of the artists' statements in Romney and Wootton.
