Film Music works in conjunction with dialogue and image to establish the mood and tone of a movie; classical, jazz, electronic -- regardless of genre, any material composed or scored expressly for use in a motion picture can be defined as film music. A soundtrack album, on the other hand, is not necessarily film music, as many of the songs that make up the record (as with those for American Graffiti, The Big Chill, Dirty Dancing, and so forth) were not originally intended for use in the movie, and other times (as in Batman Forever) don't even appear in the actual feature at all.
