In the famous film Casablanca, music is used to primarily identify the scene that is being shown, to compliment a character, and to be the opening act of a famous melody. Since Casablanca is based around a time of war, the settings alternate between America and the Middle East. Popular American music was crucial for the audience to recognize Rick’s Café, which is realistically found in the United States. Also, popular American music set the joyous mood of the refugees. Paired with setting the mood, popular American music highlighted the suspense of the French vs. German “singing war”. Upon hearing the Germans happily serenade their national anthem, the French take advantage of the opportunity or competition and out-sing the German with “Marseilles”.
