5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Tunes, Beautiful Film 10 Aug 2009
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack is full of fantastic songs from an even better movie. From classics like The Smiths to new tracks from Temper Trap, this soundtrack is full of quality gems. It's a shame they missed out Patrick Swayze though! (This comment makes more sense after you've seen the movie).

I've had this CD for over a month and it still hasn't left my CD player. Definately money well spent!

4.0 out of 5 stars For a story of boy meets girl 24 Mar 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
When you have a quirky arty comedy movie -- especially one with romance -- it's pretty much a must to have a brilliant soundtrack.

So it's hardly surprising that "(500) Days Of Summer" has a colorful array of various songs from a pretty eclectic bunch of bands -- everything from classics to indie pop, anti-folk to galloping hard rock'n'roll. And while it adds extra dimensions to the lovable film from which it springs, it's also a pretty good selection of music in its own right.

We're ushered into the album with a soft cloud of strings and flute, and a solemn spoken monologue about the movie's plot: "This is a story of boy meets girl..." Rather appropriately, it then segues into the rippling beauty of Regina Spektor's "Us" ("They made a statue of us/and put it on a mountaintop/now tourists come and stare at us..."), a delightfully peppy song that trickles up and down the piano keys.

The songs that follow are a pretty eclectic bunch: the Smiths' hard-edged "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" and the fast-strummed "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want," Simon and Garfunkel's wispy folk "Bookends," and the delightful "You Make My Dreams" by Hall and Oates. And then there's Wolfmother's blazing cycling "Vagabond," the Black Lips' stringy unpolished "Bad Kids," the Temper Trap's fast-pacing shifting rocker "Sweet Disposition," Mumm-Ra's catchy Britpopper "She's Got You High," and the brilliantly sweeping, fast-moving "There Goes The Fear" by the Doves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of modern classics 23 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD
(500) Days of Summer is a great movie and its soundtrack does justice to the story. It's one of the best soundtracks I've ever listened to. You will find very uplifting songs in it and some sad melodies that work so well together. Before entering the world of filmmaking Marc Webb directed music videos, no wonder why he came out with this compilation. Don't think about it, buy this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully quirky and chilled listen 25 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Must say I loved the film - not groundbreaking and even a few cliches (e.g. the annoying wise kid sister) - but very enjoyable, charming, quirky and life-affirming viewing. Pretty much sums up this very eclectic soundtrack that is far 'too cool for school' for it's own good, but highly enjoyable anyways!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for housework or driving! 10 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After watching the film I was left thinking girls can be really mean, and I didn't want to see it again (I have, however!). But this is probably a rare case where I would rather listen to the soundtrack than watch the film - some great tracks from Regina Spektor and The Smiths especially. Track 7 "You make my dreams" is a house favourite. Love to play it full blast in the car or when doing jobs around the house!

4.0 out of 5 stars 500 Days of Summer Soundtrack 21 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wanted to buy this after enjoying the songs within the film as well as the film itself. A nice mixture of various artists. But it does not include every song from the film, e.g. The Infinite Pet by Spoon. But the product arrived pretty quickly and was in tact once I received it.

Other than that, it is a very enjoyable soundtrack which I do listen to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for smiles 14 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My favourite thing about the movie 500 Days of Summer was the soundtrack. This coming from someone who, when I first watched it, found most older songs to be well, boring. Oh, how I've changed my mind. I love every single track, even Zooey's cover of The Who - her voice is so cute, it matches the song.
