500 Days Of Summer album description:If you’ve never seen this movie before, you would probably guess (jut as we did several years ago), what kind of summer should it be to have 500 days of it? 1 and a half year – is the relations period, according to this film, before meeting someone else, after you break off yourself, tearing all the memories, shedding all the tears about the previously beloved person and starting fulfilling the inner void, caused by leaving of this person from your existence. So, this isn’t about 1.5-years summer, but about Summer – a girl, in whom the protagonist fell in love. His next girl, imagine that, – is named Autumn. This contains a philosophy, saying that after each another adventure and deed, whatever long they were, comes the next period and life circle doesn’t stop unless you are dead.
Three remarkable actors, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel and very young Chloë Grace Moretz act in this. On YouTube, you can even find them playing songs together, obviously promoting this film or simply becoming friends after their mutual shooting. They sing it pretty well, as if compensating the absence of their vocals in the songs collection.
Simon and Garfunkel are the biggest stars in the soundtrack and maybe only Carla Bruni’s old song Quelqu'un M'a Dit can remind that this singer is maybe not that famous in her singing, but is much more famous to her marriage to Nicolas Sarkozy, former French president (and her photos when she was a model are pretty too).
Here Comes Your Man is most suitable for the scene when they decisively separate on the day 488, when Summer tells him she found just right guy. When lyrics of Vagabond best reflects him in the period of mind fall, knowing she is engaged to someone else, several months earlier. The film is slightly mashed-up as the Mushaboom’s lyrics can tell.
