Mark Webb discusses the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack in detail

Cool guy director Mark Webb strikes again! Mark has given The Playlist an exclusive, in-depth look into the music of 500 Days of Summer. The Playlist had no problem emphasizing how great it was for Mark to offer this really cool insight into every song from the film, as well as details about the complicity of licensing.

Mark Webb on The Smiths “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out”:

It’s an extremely brief but important use. Story point. Originally we were just cleared for the publishing – just so [Zooey Deschanel's character] Summer could sing a line from the song. We ended up playing the song louder on [Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character] Tom’s headphones so the audience could here what she’s singing along to – which, of course, required a master use license.

That page contains the official soundtrack track listing, FAQs, and will be continuously updated with new details about the soundtrack. The post below contains the entire list of the songs that play during 500 Days of Summer.

While there is a lot of buzz around the film, the songs of 500 Days of Summer have also getting quite a bit of attention. Jarett Wieselman from nypost.com said “500 Days of Summer Will Have 2009’s Best Soundtrack. Mark My Words.” From the looks of the killer soundtrack below, I think Jarett might be right.

Besides Sweet Disposition by the The Temper Trap, featured in the 500 Days teaser trailer, the soundtrack features Regina Spektor, The Smiths, Wolfmother, Spoon, Doves, even Simon & Garfunkel among many others.

Slashfilm has done an amazing job of manually tracking down all the songs from the movie to create an unofficial track listing. Thanks to Slashfilm! The soundtrack has been recreated below for your convenience!

Podcast interview with Joseph Gordon-Levitt on 500 Days of Summer

The Hollywood Podcast has just posted another 500 Days of Summer interview with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It’s relatively short but definitely worth a listen. In addition to the 500 Days of Summer discussion, Joe and Tim Coyne get into some discussion about Joe’s official site, hitRECord.org, and social media.

Marc gave Zooey and me a start gift when we started shooting 500 Days of Summer. He gave us each a little iPod and he had put a bunch of music on the iPod and it was all songs that he was thinking for the movie. It wasn’t necessarily songs he would get to use, although some of them he did get to use, but it was where his head was at musically [...] and he labeled them by scene and by day [in the movie.]
