Film Language Tag: underscore

Nondiegetic music. Synonym for "background music" (a term we prefer to avoid because it confuses the nondiegetic with background physical space in the image track), "underscoring," "accompaniment," "commentative music," "dramatic scoring," or just "scoring." Buhler, James and David Neumeyer. Hearing the Movies: Music and Sound in Film History. Oxford UP, 2015.
