  • When Tom, a hapless greeting card copywriter and hopeless romantic, is blindsided after his girlfriend summer dumps him, he shifts back and forth through various periods of their 500 days "together" to try to figure out where things went wrong. His reflections ultimately lead him to finally rediscover his true passions in life.

500 Days of Summer Soundtrack Tracklisting

Update (April, 09): It has been confirmed that this purportedly official tracklisting was, in fact, only a rumor. We now have details on the official album: View the 500 Days of Summer Soundtrack with details and artwork.

500 days of summer soundtrackThis post is an update to our last post with songs from 500 Days of Summer. This appears to be a more concrete listing of what songs are actually going to be on the 500 Days of Summer Official Soundtrack. Stereogum didn’t provide any details of where they got this information but they are a pretty good source of information and the track listing would definitely make good sense. Whatever the final listing is like, this is a sweet soundtrack.

I’m a little unsure of these “karaoke selections” listed under the main tracks below. There are definitely some karaoke bar scenes in 500 Days of Summer, but is the soundtrack going to have karaoke tracks?

  1. FYI this isn’t the official track list for the SOUNDTRACK for the film – just list of songs used in the film.

    samantha on Mar 25, 2009

  2. Don’t Joseph and Zooey sing in the film?

    Kirri on May 22, 2009

  3. I know Joe pulls off some pretty amazing karaoke singing. Not sure about Zooey’s character.

    Marc on May 23, 2009

  4. Yes, I like “The Smiths”

    Mozzer on Jul 14, 2009

  5. Just saw this movie and the soundtrack mixes very well with the scenes.

    Great great movie.

  6. Fantastic film. Brilliant soundtrack

    Honesty on Jul 18, 2009

  7. Was lucky enough to get to see this and the soundtrack was a character all by itself. Brilliantly chosen tracks!

    Both Zooey and Joseph sing and they both do a spot on job. Zooey actually has or had her own band called She & Him. Had a folky/country/lounge sound to it. Different but a great listen.

    Crimson on Jul 19, 2009

  8. This film is quite spectacular! It’s just amazing. I saw it at a festival and loved it, along with Breaking Upwards. If you haven’t saw it either, you should!

    The soundtrack weaves itself into the movie beautifully. It’s a win :)

    oh.. & duuuuh. Everyone likes the Smiths!!

    kel :) on Jul 20, 2009

  9. I think the first Karaoke song (which is the last in the movie) is Train in Vain by the Clash and not Poison, but my ears might’ve been mistaken.

    shadow on Jul 27, 2009

  10. actuallly the last band listed is not Rumm-Rah…

    it’s Rumm-Ra

    in case you look for it and can’t find it. =)

    Beautiful film. I adore the characters and love how the songs mesh so well with the characters. It seems more believable that way.

    Dani Elle on Aug 6, 2009

  11. my bad… *Mumm-Ra

    guess i have rum on the brain…

    carry on

    Dani Elle on Aug 6, 2009

    bree on Aug 31, 2009

  13. oh.. jk!

    i just got the soundtrack yesterdaqy and its not on there. :(((

    bree on Aug 31, 2009

  14. Phenomenal movie. All too often something beautiful comes along in your life and so quickly it becomes evident that they were just put there to teach you something about yourself you would have never learned without them.

    I was truly moved and the music was just amazing.

    Mel on Sep 5, 2009

  15. what was that song called, i really dont know the words to it either but i know they played it twice, he doesnt really sing, its just like a high pitch ‘hmmmmm’ at the begining of it.

    thanks ppl x

    josh on Sep 10, 2009

  16. saw the advert for this film on the TV and there were two tracks in the background. The first was a kinda mexican / latino band / guitar type song and then boys don’t cry by the cure. I want to know what that first track was!! I went through the soundtrack list and i don’t think it was on it. I’m sure it was in the UK charts about two years ago, any ideas??

    suf on Sep 15, 2009

  17. Wich song does the main character on his blind date? He is really hurt and sings something like.. ” … Cant explain away, but my heart aint ….. everyday, stand by me, and i ….”

    Nina on Oct 10, 2009

    Wameed on Oct 16, 2009

  22. what’s the name of the song played at the wedding??

    Doina on Nov 3, 2009

  23. nevermind, I found it, it’s ‘At last’ by Etta James…
    Wonderful song….

    Doina on Nov 3, 2009

  24. Train in Vain AND Every Rose Has … are both heard in the Karaoke bar. (how’d i miss ‘boys don’t cry’??

    Dan on Nov 10, 2009

    i guess it was composed by michael danna…in the soundtrack we find, there’s only one song by him, and it is the opening scene…it’s called “A Story Of Boy Meets Girl”
    i want all the other songs!
    like when he is in the office drawing, in the train trying to find a seat, when he is coming back from the wedding, etc.
    it would be too bad if they didn’t come up with any original score album for the movie.

    amir on Nov 12, 2009

  26. where are the pixies with “here comes your man”?? loved it when joseph sang this song drunken in the karaoke-bar!

    marie on Nov 12, 2009

  27. 0.00 am. in the morning, I’ve just watched this great film and still keep thinking of it. What a … !

    Apart from the content, I have to say that I was really impressed by the director’s skills in creating really innovative “tricks” to make this more colorful, like “the back and forth clock”, “the imaginative pictures shaded from brightness to darkness”, etc. and many more tiny things that made me amazed.

    Last, I am going to get the whole soundtrack album, it’ll definitely be one of my favorites! It’s quite a long time since I listened to a whole album but a single.
    Hence for a good night!

    Yung Huynh on Nov 13, 2009

  28. hi guys.. does anyone know the french song, it was playing when they were in the car… thx …

    ERKAN on Nov 15, 2009

    Sven on Dec 7, 2009

  35. a quien no le ha pasado?! crees que es una cósmica conexión, y resulta ser una maldita coincidencia… rompiendo tus ilusiones y tu corazón, que mierda no?
    la película muestra exactamente esa maldita porquería… de la cual te vuelves adicto a su dolor….

  46. Hi, great compilation here and thanks for taking the time to share your information.
    Great movie, can’t stop thinking about it. Makes me wonder why really nice guys just can’t seem to pin a girl down. Even inspired me to write a book.
    I wonder, I’ve been searching for the theme instrumental song that sounds like an Eric Satie compisition, do you know what name it is?
