The music of Forrest Gump doesn’t merely serve as the background filler to the movie, rather, it enhances it, and helps the viewer further get a glimpse and taste the era Forrest finds himself in. The twang of the guitar in Duane Eddy’s Rebel Rouser takes us down to the Deep South in a time it brimmed with racial segregation and discrimination, while Jefferson Airplane’s Volunteers successfully strums up the vehement feelings of the late 60’s. Even though it is a diverse selection of music from a very eventful time in American, and world, history, the soundtrack of Forrest Gump somehow comes together perfectly, and, without feeling like a jumbled oldies station, further cements the brilliance of the movie.
