Grey’s soundtrack

Update : 01 Mar 2015, 06:10 PM

It has broken box office records and garnered an army of housewives like teens drooling over Twilight. However, there is the incredible official soundtrack. It’s sexier than the book and film put together. It’s sexy, seductive, hypnotizing, and arranged ingeniously.

The album begins with a surprising and sassy number by veteran Annie Lennox. “I Put A Spell On You” is a smooth and sultry introduction to the entire soundtrack. It really sets the tone to the rest of the list, giving you a taste of what is to follow. The second standout has to be the popular sound of digital music fame, The Weeknd. Yes, that’s how you spell it. “Earned It” is vintage Weeknd; it’s soothing, alluring, and provocative all at the same time. Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” seems to be the movie’s anthem. Its memorable melody is haunting and easily grabs your attention. “Haunted (Michael Diamond Remix)” by Beyonce, on the other hand, is what the title suggests. It has a dark tone, but the beat keeps you awake, only to induce you into a fantasy you might not want to wake up from. Beyonce’s second track “Crazy In Love (2014 Remix)” has been slowed down to meet the overall sound of the album. Another wonderful surprise is having the classic “Witchcraft” by Ol’ Blue Eyes, Frank Sinatra. This is a short stop at a throwback to an era where almost everything the Rat Pack produced was in fashion. Finally, “I Know You” by Skylar Grey sounds like an emotional roller coaster in climax, paving the final two closing tracks.

While the overall music of the album can send you into a trance, the titles mentioned above are the big winners. If you haven’t had a listen to a song or two, get on it. Unlike the movie or book, we can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with this amazing soundtrack.
