fripodding and the end of summer: (500) days of summer soundtrack


Sadly, I can’t really do this soundtrack justice today. I’m having a very busy week without much time for writing my much beloeved blog post about music, movies and TV shows… especially this week! But I’ll have updates on all those things sooner than later.

Anyway, this week, I finally got around to listening to the acclaimed soundtrack for the acclaimed movie (500) Days of Summer. I first saw the movie months ago and thought it was awesome, if not a little painful. Sometimes–sometimes–the best movies are the ones that you can really connect and relate to on a personal level. But not only was it a really good movie, it look me listening to the soundtrack to figure out another reason why I resonated with this film. I’ll be honest, since there’s been such a large gap between watching this movie and listening to its’ soundtrack, I don’t remember half of the songs in the movie.

But, this only makes me want to see it all the more because I enjoyed the music so much. And as I started out saying, I can’t do this friPod justice and talk about the songs in particular that I really liked or how it affected the movie… but rest assured I will return once I own the movie and have ample time to really expand on what so many people already know and kept telling me about.

In the mean time, check out these past friPod posts:

Oh, and goodbye summer.

  1. […] (500) Days of Summer soundtrack This album makes me want to watch the movie, and the movie makes me want to listen to the album. I love the mix of the music and how it so perfectly captures the moods and feelings that were felt in the film, and how it brings me back to those scenes. I will go as far to say that if you own either one (film or soundtrack)  you should get the other to have a complete set. From Regina Spektor, The Temper Trap and Hall & Oats… great songs from past and present still sound awesome in the future. […]
