50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack Review

50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack Review

 

Although the 50 Shades of Grey film was a letdown, the soundtrack to the erotic film sizzled in comparison. The soundtrack was the only part of the film that made me able to sit through the entire film. The soundtrack features music from Sia, Jessica Ware, Skylar Grey, Beyoncé, and electronic rock band AWOLNATION. Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love” remix proves to be even better than the original. As it masters the sultry, sexy vibe , yet doesn’t lose the essence of the song. As if that wasn’t enough, a genius by the name of Boots remixes Beyoncé’s “Haunted” , a track he produced on Beyoncé, and while it doesn’t surpass the original, it comes awfully close.(Unfortunately both of Beyoncé’s songs off the soundtrack aren’t currently on Spotify.) The soundtrack almost sort of takes you through a musical journey featuring my must-listen-to-tracks which consist of:

1.) “Crazy in Love Remix”-by Beyoncé

2.) ‘I Put a Spell on You”-by Annie Lennox

3.) “Meet me in the Middle”-by Jessica Ware

4.) “Haunted (Michael Diamond Remix)”-by Beyoncé

5.)”Love Me Like You Do.”-by Ellie Goulding

6.) “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey)”-by The Weeknd

The 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack mixed classic oldies like Frank Sinatra remastered version of “Witchcraft”, and Annie Lennox’s hit “I Put a Spell on You”, as well as new music from The Weeknd (“Earned it”) and Ellie Goulding (“Love me like you do.) The magnificent combination of new and old songs is why I believe this may just be the soundtrack album of the year.
