MUSIC: First Listen To Where The Wild Things Are Version Of 'Wake Up'...
Where The Wild Things Are is easily my number one film so far this year.
It may also have my favorite trailer of this year, and not just because it nearly made me cry.
Being a huge fan of not only the trailer, but the song used in it, which was "Wake Up" by one of my favorite bands, The Arcade Fire, is a personal favorite of mine. What made it even better, was that it was a completely new and fresh version of this bombastic and powerful tune, one that was previously unavailable. Until now, at least sort of.
Previousy unavailable, even on the official soundtrack for WTWTA, We Love You So, the official arts and cultures blog of director Spike Jonze, along with the World's Best Ever, have released a special WTWTA inspired, single mp3, style mixtape. The 1 minute, 39 second long track is included on the single, 40 minute long mp3, and is heard roughly 2:20 in. It IS the exact song heard in the trailer, and is even the same length. Imagine the trailer, just on your iPod, and you have your eyes closed.
Thanks to The Playlist for the heads up! Check out part of the track below and click on the link above to download the entire mixtape.
