Well, there are a lot of great films to get excited over right now. It is, after all, about to be the summer of blockbusters. But while there’s Spiderman and that one Seth McFarlan western divvying our interests, there’s one that we actually cannot wait to get in line for this weekend: The Fault In Our Stars, based on the novel by John Green. As you can imagine, this has a lot to do with the flying rumors that this film can reduce anything with a pulse to a box of soggy Kleenex - and also the soundtrack.
Okay, first of all, there’s this awesome new music video by Charli XCX for her featured song, “Boom Clap.” It’s almost worth going to see the movie just to watch this song unfold in one glorious moment.
Birdy also teamed up with American artist Jaymes Young for “Best Shot” which appears as a bonus track on the soundtrack.
And there you have it: proof that over here, we’re drawn to movies because of, not in spite of, their soundtracks!
