Song of the Week: ‘The Last Kiss’ Soundtrack

First off, I didn’t realize how powerful my word is…after I made Hallelujah the Song of the Week, it became the #1 downloaded song on iTunes. Wow. I’m amazing. Okay, maybe American Idol is the reason it hit #1, but maybe not…

This week’s Song of the Week is actually a whole album because I just can’t settle on one song! If you haven’t listened to ‘The Last Kiss’ movie soundtrack, you should! I’ve had it for quite a while and, for some reason, have only shared it with Nate in the last few weeks. He likes it just as much as I do. It’s gotten me through many a night slaving away in the kitchen. And, yes, Zach Braff is on the cover of the album, just like last week. The dude has good taste in music, what can I say?

I WILL tell you which songs I especially like on the album.

MOST favorite songs:
Warning Sign by Coldplay (which appeared previously as a Song of the Week and is my most favorite Coldplay song)
Paper Bag by Fiona Apple (which I loved before I got this soundtrack)
Paperweight by Joshua Radin & Schuyler Fisk (this song is BEAUTIFUL…albeit a bit “romantic,” if you catch my drift…)

Second most favorite songs:
Chocolate by Snow Patrol
Hold You In My Arms by Ray LaMontagne
Star Mile by Joshua Radin

Nate’s favorite song on the album:
Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk by Rufus Wainwright

I honestly like every song on the album, however. You should listen to them all! (Click here and scroll down a bit on the page to preview all the songs.)

Quick note: For some reason you can only buy this soundtrack on CD through Amazon, not as an MP3. SO…if you want to get the whole album in MP3 format in one fell swoop, you’ll have to go to iTunes. However, all of the songs listed above (except Paperweight) WILL link to individual MP3s on Amazon.

Quick note #2: I haven’t actually seen this movie, so if you decide to watch it because of this post and it stinks, it’s not my fault.

Now – GO LISTEN! These songs are great.

    I have to say that I was not a big fan of this movie…saw it long before this post! 😉

    But I am excited to download the album…you haven’t led me astray yet!!

    the movie sucks but the album rocks. I love Fiona Apple– she gets me through those rough spots (that seem to pop up quite often these days). Ray is also a total champ. Glad to see that my excellent taste in music has rubbed off you after all these years. BY THE WAY, DON’T FORGET THAT MARCH MADNESS IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER, AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS!! It’s my year Maynards, MY year…

    I don’t know if “cigarettes and chocolate milk” is my favorite song, but it does speak to me. Gotta have my cigarettes and choco milk!
    Disclaimer – kids don’t smoke. It will give you cancer!

    cigarettes and chocolate milk is one of our favorites….nice! also I must say good taste to your music choices. I think, judging from your choices that you’d dig the soundtrack to “Dan in Real life”….sondre lerche is pure genius!
