Soundtrack favorites.....

Recommended Posts

Ok, since we all adore this soundtrack so much, I just thought it would be interesting to hear what are the favorite songs of my fellow ka-bloomies. I personally enjoy The Hollies "Jesus was a Crossmaker" and MMJ's song, I can't remember the name of it.

Anyway, just alittle tidbit here, my uncle in KY (actually he's a cousin, somewhere down the line, you know how tangled that can get) was a member of MMJ years ago when they first started, but not anymore. So, I guess I can say I know Orlando by association.

Anyway, I digress, back to favorites, post yours.

Long Ride Home and Hard Times I go back to all the time. I guess I like the bluegrass sound of them. Same in Any Language I really like too.

I know it's supposed to be favorites but I can't pick just one SO instead I'll mention the one that I wish was not on the soundtrack or in the movie - the Lindsey Buckingham song Shut Us Down. His voice just rubs me the wrong way - like fingernails on a chalkboard! I guess I just don't appreciate this fine rock classic. :blink: After giving it a chance the first 3 or 4 times through the CD, now I just skip to the next track. Problem solved.

My very favorite was Tom Petty's Square One. It feels like my life in song, and I am so glad it's on the soundtrack. Best of all, it's played during one of my favorite scenes.

I feel the same way about that song, HeySailor. :paperbag: At least you gave it a try. I didn't. I also seem to go back to "Don't I Hold You".

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who has a problem with 'Shut Us Down'. I just can't like it. My favorite started out as 'My Father's Gun', but now it's 'Where To Begin'. Not having seen the movie, I can only imagine how it's used. I just know when I hear it, I can feel the isolation Drew must be feeling.

Well, I'm going to give some love to "Shut Us Down". I really like it. I may try to find some more Lindsey Buckingham stuff. I really like all the songs except for "Where to Begin" and "Jesus Was A Crossmaker". :tomato: I wish I could find the score though. Ah well, that's what Amazon is for I guess.

ETA: I've changed my mind on the songs I don't like. I gave both "Where To Begin" and "Jesus Was A Crossmaker" a second chance after hearing them in the film and decided that I like them both. So I guess I like all the songs on the soundtrack now.

The soundtrack is not released in Taiwan. (Not yet. I hope so.) I don't know if it will be released soon or with the film out at late January next year.

Well, I like our background music Same In Any Language pretty much. I like the voice. And it's kind of rock. :smoke:

My favourite so far is "My Father's Gun". There is just something about it that makes me :quiver: and get goose bumps everytime I hear it.

Luv ya, :heart:

After seeing the movie, I now want the soundtrack to be longer. Wasn't there a different Lindsey Buckingham/Fleetwood Mac song? And that song that was here at kaBloom for a while (luckily I saved it) - Summer something? There were a few others. Has anyone compiled a list?

My favorite is My Father's Gun. It hits me right in the :heart: whenever I listen to it. And after seeing the movie, it has even more meaning and depth for me. Sigh. Can't wait to see the movie again this coming Friday. :cheer:

After seeing the film, Cameron could have released two soundtracks full of music. Not just the soundtrack and score. There was quite a bit of music in the film that isn't on the soundtrack that I would love to have on cd. For example, does anyone know the name of the song playing when Drew is driving through Louisville. I really liked it. I also really liked Summer Long.

"My Father's Gun" was stuck in my head for days, so that one is way up on the list. I haven't listened to many of the songs without the movie - yep, definitely need to go pick this up. I'm kind of disappointed that Petty's "Learning to Fly" isn't on it, I loved that song too.

By the way, I looked the Etown soundtrack up on iTunes and all the user reviews are excellent, and they all have good things to say about the movie as well. :)

I got the soundtrack Sunday afternoon. I haven't had time to listen to all of the songs in full, yet, but I like the Ryan Adams song, and of course, "My Father's Gun." I was also a little disappointed that "Learning to Fly" wasn't on the soundtrack because I think it fit in the trailers so well, but the other Tom Petty songs on the CD are good, too.

Who sang "Same in Any Language" during the movie? It's different than what's on the CD, right? I should have stayed to watch the song credits. Guess I'll just have to go see the movie again. :rolleyes:

eta: The songs seem different to me now that I've seen the movie. Some tracks I didn't care for before, I now really love.

I came into this thread hoping to find an answer to that, as well. Anyone know the name of the song? It keeps running through my head (as well as the bit that plays when Drew and Claire meet up on the side of the road after the all-night phone call), but it's not on the soundtrack.

As for favorite tracks, I like "IO (This Time Around)" by Helen Stellar and "Don't I Hold You" by Wheat.

Yes I like that one too. The one where he's leaving Louisville. Is it on the score soundtrack? Does anyone know?

Ok and what song is Drew's ringtone? I love it! Does anyone one who sings it?

francophile, that song is the new board music. :wub: The title is Big Love by Lindsey Buckingham. I found all this out in the "What's That Song" thread under Board Stuff. And Allie, Big Love is not on the score. The score is all instrumentals.

I second Allie's questions about Drew's ring tone. It sounds so familar to me.

Thanks so much oceanbreeze5! The song on Drew's phone, by the way, is "Can't Get Next to You" by The Temptations (I think).

Lindsey Buckingham, huh? If I'm thinking of the right person, you wouldn't know that this was the same person singing "Shut Us Down", the track playing during the "exercise bike" scene.

Thanks again! :hug:

It's too bad all the songs from the movie weren't on the soundtrack. I also wish Learning to Fly could have been on it, I've fallen in love with that song.

Do you know what would also be cool? If Jesse's version of "Freebird" was on the soundtrack. :)

Oh Jessie's version of Freebird kicked :censor: !

I can't hear the music on the main page right now. I ao off to stalk MSN Music for it though. I must add it to the soundtrack.

Thank you Ivy for the info. He sounds totally different on the track than Shut Us Down that rides on my nerves.

Thank you Fran. I am going to find out for sure. I remember this song from the movie "Hope Floats". :paperbag:

eta: MSN Music has been stalked. :lol: Yes you are right Fran. Drew's ringtone is "Can't get next to you" by the Temptations. I downloaded that one and "Big Love" too. I have never been a fan of Fleetwood Mac but the guitar on this song is amazing!

Ok don't hate me for double posting. :paperbag: But I have 2 songs that I didn't to find out about. Does anyone know more about the song when Claire and Drew are picking out the urn? I have heard it on the radio recently but I can't think of who sings it. And the song when Drew is driving into and near the the 2ng Largest Farmers Market. Both great songs that I would love to add to my soundtrack list.

Anyone out there care to help me out?

I stumbled across an article spilling the beans on how I Nine became (or almost didn't become) involved with Elizabethtown by recording the Nancy Wilson-written "Same in Any Language".

The Birmingham News

Hey, no joke, it's Cameron Crowe calling

Sunday, October 23, 2005

Don VanCleave answered the phone, and the guy on the other end said he was Cameron Crowe.

"I'm like, `No (fooling),'" VanCleave recalls.

But it really was Cameron Crowe, and the writer-director of "Jerry Maguire" and "Almost Famous" wanted to pick VanCleave's brain about the music for the soundtrack to Crowe's latest movie, "Elizabethtown," which opened last weekend.

VanCleave, a Vestavia Hills resident and the influential president of the Coalition of Independent Music Stores, struck up a long conversation with Crowe that day and they talked a couple of more times over the next few weeks.

VanCleave told Crowe about this new band out of Atlanta, I Nine, that he had just gotten turned on to, and he overnighted Crowe a CD.

"He called me the next morning and was like, `I'm putting this band in my movie,'" VanCleave says. "He loved 'em."

Crowe and his wife, former Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson, had written a song, "Same In Any Language," especially for "Elizabethtown," and Crowe wanted I Nine to record it for the movie's soundtrack.

"It was a brilliant idea," VanCleave says. "And I knew it would be a big deal for the band to get the single for a Cameron Crowe movie."

But there was one problem.

"They didn't want to do it," VanCleave says. "They were like, `We're flattered, but this is not our song.' I kind of had to sit them down and let them know it would be a real wise move to do this song."

The band eventually concurred.

"It was so spur of the moment," I Nine vocalist Carmen Keigans explains. "Cameron calls and says, `Will you do our song?' The band had some reservations about whether or not it would be a good first impression, but so far people seem to dig it."

The song - which begins, "Those postcards I sent to Birmingham, all the way from those windows of Amsterdam ." - plays at the end of the movie and has been released as a radio single. I Nine also shot a video of "Same In Any Language" that's been sent to the VH1 and CMT music channels.

In the meantime, VanCleave just got back from tagging along with Crowe, Wilson and the movie's star, Orlando Bloom, on an "Elizabethtown" promotional tour. VanCleave and his family went to "Elizabethtown" premieres in New York, Nashville and Louisville.

He has one question, though.

"I want to know why I'm the only one who likes this movie," he says. "I think it's fantastic."

A road picture in which Bloom plays a grown son who has to deal with the double whammy of losing his father and likely losing his job, "Elizabethtown" has been blistered by film critics, one of whom called it a "rambling wreck that is nothing to Crowe about."

But Crowe remains upbeat about it, VanCleave says.

"I just talked to him," he says. "He's handling it like I guess you do when you're that guy and you're getting panned.

"But he didn't seem real down about it. He was like, `Man, it is what it is.'"

Ok, so I was doing my daily ritual of listening to the soundtrack as I drive, and I have found a new one that is fast becoming a favorite-Sugar Blue (track #8). I really like it, he sounds kind of like Leon Russell who is another favorite of mine.

Hey Guys! :wave:

There is a list of ALL songs included in the movie in a scan from a handout that Rebecca received at the Nashville premiere. Here's the scan:

ETown_PremiereHandout03.jpg

Now, the song that is frustrating me to NO end, is the Ryan Adams' "Words." I can't find it ANYWHERE!! It's the song that plays toward the end of the roadtrip as Drew is watching the sun set. The next song that plays after that is "When I Hold You."

iTunes has proved invaluable in compiling my own soundtrack. I still need to check for a few of the ones not included on the main soundtrack, but I know you can find "Big Love" (although the one used in the film is a live version from The Dance CD), "Summerlong," by Kathleen Edwards, "Pride (In the name of love)" by U2 and "English Girls Approximately" by Ryan Adams, which, by the way, is the song that plays during Drew's search through The 2nd Largest Farmer's Market.

Hope that helps a little. The scans are a true treasure trove of information and without them, I would have driven myself crazy trying to find out the names to some of these songs. :wacko:

ZB :innocent:

ETA Oh, and the version of I-9's "The Same in Any Language" that is used in their music video has additional lyrics in it. It was a very nice surprise when I first saw it. Ka-Bloom has it available for download in the Videos thread. :shiny:
