Nowadays whenever anyone starts a sentence with “Fifty Shades” people immediately judge him/her (mostly her) as a horny teenager or an overtly desperate housewife who is a fangirl of physical abuse disguised as erotica and has horrible taste in literature. But I’m neither a teenager nor a housewife, and I absolutely hate the godforsaken book (went through the first few chapters, couldn’t bear the horrible writing, burnt it in the furnace, took the remnants to a hill far far away and buried it) and have no intentions whatsoever to watch the movie because:
1. I’m not a sadist.
2. I hate the misogynistic concept of the book/movie.
3. I don’t have a husband to accompany me, who probably would’ve made it bearable for me.
But yes where there is music involved I tend to give it a chance. So, I came across the OST for Fifty Shades of Crap and went through the tracks, and to my surprise I actually liked a few of them.
Most of the tracks give off a very sexy vibe, as in they seem appropriate only for a committed/married couple to listen to and might sound awkward to a shy and single girl like me, so therefore I steered clear of some of those because of the lack of romance in my life.
But four specific songs were so darn catchy and awesome that I HAD to put them in my playlist! Check them out in the Grooveshark links below:
- “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding
- “One Last Night” by Vaults
- “Undiscovered” by Laura Welsh
- “Haunted” (Michael Diamond Remix) by Beyonce
These four are really something! The rest of the songs were also kinda cool, but just not my cup of tea. Anyway buy/download the soundtrack yourself and check them out.
However, the movie has released today; on this terrible, horrible, no-good day. But still Happy Valentine’s day to all you lovers out there. There is no such thing as love, but it’s still good to see people trying. Anyway, to the rest of the strong independent single people like me: get in your car, go on a long drive, put on some awesome music (for reference check out the above mentioned songs) and sing aloud, coz there is nothing better then freedom.
A Final Word of Advice:
Don’t waste your money on the movie ticket. I’ve read a lot of reviews of the flick and it’s absolutely HORRIBLE. But if you’re a fan of the book (seriously??) then wait for the DVD release.
