Soundtrack: 500 Days of Summer
A soundtrack with songs that are well selected and inserted at the right moments make a film all that much more memorable and enjoyable. The soundtrack to 500 Days of Summer along with the story, acting, and directing made this film a recent favorite of mine. The soundtrack fits the film perfectly. I was already familiar with some of the artists: Simon & Garfunkel, Doves, The Smiths, Feist, She & Him, and Wolfmother. Others I was introduced to for the first time. In particular, "Us" by Regina Spektor and "Sweet Disposition" by The Temper Trap stood out and stayed in my head for days. The movie and soundtrack are well worth checking out if you get a chance.
