500 Days of Summer Soundtrack
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.

Is 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!
