Fifty Shades Of Grey – Music Edition

While EVERYBODY is either excited or riled up about the release of Fifty Shades Of Grey, there has not been much buzz on the magnificent soundtrack that accompanies the film. All I have read on multiple online outlets is either how great or how dreadful the movie is.

I will be shying away from the theaters, and hold off my curiosity until the movie gets a Netflix release. I will not however shy away from talking about the wonderful job done with the soundtrack.

The first glimpse of the soundtrack came via Queen Bey, and the song "Haunted." There was also the NSFW video for the song "Earned It" by The Weeknd.

I have been obsessively playing the entire soundtrack, and it truly is quite magnificent. It enlists the likes of Skylar Gray, Ellie Goulding, AWOLNATION, Jessie Ware, Laura Welsh, Danny Elfman, VAULTS. And, fresh off the GRAMMYS, the amazing Annie Lenox, and Sia. Also, a remastered version of "Witchcraft" by the only and only Frank Sinatra.

While the movie might not be perceived in the tone of romance, the soundtrack surely does deliver that – a combination of haunting power ballads, along with some classics.

If you are skipping the movie theater altogether; I highly recommend that you do incorporate the soundtrack to your romantic Valentine's Day plans.
