oh my gosh, I'm so excited!

your number’s up

Posted on: February 23, 2011

ipodI’m a huge soundtrack fan.  When a film really gets to me, usually it’s the music that I just can’t get out of my head.  I saw I Am Number Four this weekend.  It wasn’t the most amazing movie I’ve ever seen, but the whole time I just kept thinking, “I NEED to get this soundtrack!”. To my surprise, they didn’t release one, so after having the songs stuck in my head for 2 days, I spent Sunday tracking down the music.

The sweeping orchestration of Adele’s new single, Rolling In The Deep, is by far my favorite song used in the previews and movie itself.  I actually bought her new album, 21, on pre-order in December because her first album, 19, is still on heavy rotation on my iPod. Right As Rain can pull me out of any funk.

I have to just chuckle at little bit at the name of the band that’s responsible for the fitting song, Letters From The Sky. It turns out I’m a bit late to the party for fans of Civil Twilight.  I laugh only because their logo is in a font very similar to that other “Twilight” you might know about and I have a feeling this adds to their popularity.  But the song itself is great: slow build, strong vocal, and captivating visual storytelling.

Which leads me to a random list of other songs I think are quite cinematic in their own way.  Some are actually on soundtracks, others aren’t, but it’s a general mash up of music you might enjoy! You can “pop out” the music player from the blog to listen without keeping this window open.

What a lot of work to track down the “#4” “soundtrack!”. Enjoy!
