    Boy meets girl
    Boy falls in love
    Girl doesn't

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Marc Webb
    Wirtten by: Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber
    Cast: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Clark Gregg, Minka Kelly, Matthew Gray Gubler, Rachel Boston, Geoffrey Arend, Chloe Moritz
    Producers: Jessica Tuchinsky, Mary Waters, Steven Wolfe, Mason Novick

  • This post modern love story is never what we expect it to be -- It's thorny yet exhilarating, funny and sad, a twisted journey of highs and lows that doesn't quite go where we think it will.

    Release Date: July 17, 2009

I’ve been expecting the 500 Days of Summer Soundtrack info to be released sometime this week and I just received an email with the ridiculously juicy details!

The 500 Days of Summer Soundtrack will hit store shelves on July 14th through Sire Records, three days before the film officially opens in theaters. The track listing is almost too good to be true. Seriously. Check out the full listing after the jump.

500 Days of Summer Soundtrack Now Available!
1. A Story of Boy Meets Girl – Mychael Danna and Rob Simonsen
2. Us – Regina Spektor
3. There Is A Light That Never Goes Out – The Smiths
4. Bad Kids – Black Lips
5. Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want – The Smiths
6. There Goes The Fear – Doves
7. You Make My Dreams – Hall & Oates
8. Sweet Disposition – The Temper Trap
9. Quelqu’un M’a Dit – Carla Bruni
10. Mushaboom – Feist
11. Hero – Regina Spektor
12. Bookends – Simon & Garfunkel
13. Vagabond – Wolfmother
14. She’s Got You High – Mumm-Ra
15. Here Comes Your Man – Meaghan Smith
16. Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want – She & Him

500 Days of Summer Soundtrack ArtworkIs that an unreleased cover of The Smiths by She & Him I see as the closing track!? (She & Him would be Zooey Deschanel’s band with M. Ward.) I was hoping for a track from She & Him but wouldn’t have been disappointed otherwise, considering we don’t hear them in the film.

Hats off to writers Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, director Marc Webb, as well as everyone at Fox Searchlight and Sire Records responsible for putting together this extremely solid soundtrack. I know just figuring out the legal and other collaborations is no doubt a challenge but it obviously really paid off.

Time for you to add the 500 Days of Summer Soundtrack to your list of things to look forward to this July!

  3. I am disapointed in the lack of Pixies, ngl, but the idea of She & Him covering the Smiths so makes up for it.

  20. I find it silly that people are breathlessly waiting for a soundtrack when the individual songs can be purchased RIGHT NOW! With the exception of exclusive songs, soundtracks are nothing more than playlists at this point.

  21. Amazing soundtrack!! Can’t wait for the movie!

  29. I saw this movie yesterday at an early screening for Gen-Art, and it was great! I loved it from beginning to end, and will probably see it when it comes out in the theaters. The soundtrack was ridiculously amazing! I just pre-ordered it on I-tunes for my I-phone. This is one of the movies that you buy when it comes out on DVD. Perfection!

    Andi Michelle on Jul 1, 2009

  30. i think someone’s gonna feel silly posting their opinion about why we wait for a soundtrack to come out (HURM) because we ALL know we can go out and get it RIGHT NOW! the point is you go out and support a movie by also purchasing an album!

  36. I’m disappointed there is only one track by composer Mychael Danna (who wrote the music to Little Miss Sunshine as well) and that one track has the opening narration recorded over top of it. Hopefully they will release the score as well – I mean, the score is actually original music written for the movie.

  47. I also want to know where I can get the songs by Mychael Danna that are featured throughout the movie.

  48. Hey everyone, im wondering what the song is when summer and tom are talking in the office party? well i think its an office party. I’m pretty sure the song playing in the background is bad kids but im not sure…could someone verify?

  49. [...] De mon côté ça faisait bien longtemps que je n’étais pas ressortie d’une salle de ciné aussi enthousiasmée, avec le sourire jusqu’aux oreilles, après avoir passé un excellent moment à regarder une histoire pourtant banale (et pas forcément réjouissante) mais présentée de manière tellement rafraîchissante, et à apprécier aussi cette réaction commune de la salle (ce qui est rare, si,si) réagissant à tous ces délicieux petits moments amusants comme tout. Mais je dis tout trop vite là ^^. Ce petit bijou met en scène de très chouettes comédiens, aux personnages attachants, dans un film dont la réalisation pleine de jolies trouvailles rend le tout encore plus sympathique. Zooey Deschanel et Joseph Gordon-Levitt forment un adorable couple et je ne veux pas spoiler mais malgré le déroulement du scénario l’ambiance développée dans cette histoire de cœur tellement actuelle ne déprime pas (sauf Benj). On compatit mais on sourit, et on rit beaucoup même. Ce film est plein de tendresse, avec un soupçon de cruauté certes, et si seule une scène pour le coup terriblement banale (le pétage de cable je plaque mon job) m’a agacé j’ai trouvé tout le reste parfait. A noter, l’histoire est parallèlement racontée en chanson à travers une bande originale absolument délicieuse (d’ailleurs gros coup de cœur pour Regina Spektor – j’connaissais pas) et même que je songe à m’acheter le CD (info ici et là).

  51. Hey, in the last scene of the movie,
    when summer and tom are talking sitting on the bench, after they talk and summer goes aways, there is a instrumental song. Does anybody know what song is it?

    I love that song, it’s so good!!!

    luiz young on Nov 8, 2009

  55. omg i need the score soo bad (not the soundtrack, i have it already)…
    i mean the original songs that everyone is also demanding! haha
    so many great songs, like the part where he is searching for a seat in the train, or when they are coming back from the wedding…the song that sometimes play in the office, the second song in the credits.
    if anyone finds out anything, let us know!

    amir on Nov 11, 2009

  56. …but i still think there won’t ever be longer versions for those songs…
    i guess they composed them only to fit in the scenes. which would be a total waste of a good composer! hehe damn it

  77. Hi everybody!

    I discovered this movie some weeks ago and felt under its charm! I always have the end of it in mind, this moment when Summer tells him she finally woke up knowing what she always doubted about with him before. It’s probably my favorite scene and i love the very sad and quiet music growing behind, i bought the score and the OST, but i can’t find this particular piece of music in any track!

    Could you please help me to find it?
    This would be absolutely fantastic!

    All my thanks in advance!

    LOUP on Aug 6, 2010

    here’s the link for the second song in the credits

  85. I want to express some appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this matter. Just after surfing around throughout the online world and coming across basics that were not helpful, I believed my life was done. Existing without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you have solved by way of your entire website is a crucial case, as well as the kind which might have adversely affected my entire career if I had not discovered the website. Your own training and kindness in taking care of the whole lot was helpful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a point like this. It’s possible to at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for your impressive and effective help. I won’t hesitate to propose your web blog to any person who should receive support on this problem.
