Top 10 Music Genres to Use in Movies

I think these music genres work best with movies. There are some things that I kept on my mind before making this list.

1. Its not about how good the genre is. Its about how appropriate these genres are for using in movies.
2. Most of these genres I added here are based on instrumental parts. I didn't really think about the lyrics or vocals.

Feel free to add anything. Thanks for visiting.
