Almost All “If I Stay” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

I may be too late to talk about the original motion picture soundtrack of a movie based on the book called “If I Stay.” But still, I couldn’t kept my finger off the keyboard to write about it. I’ve seen the trailer for maybe more than 10 times. And now, I am started to read the book only after I finally watch the movie. I’m going to leave the talk about the movie itself in another rambling post of mine. Right now, I’ll talk only about the soundtrack.

I am someone who not easy fall in love with all the song from movies. I rarely bought the CD because I usually like to hear only few songs from the OST. But, I guess this movie got me. I got really bad. I am crazy in love with the soundtrack of this movie. I mean, I literally love all the song. There is no single song that I left behind. I had it all in my playlist and been listening to it every time I had a chance. From the soundtrack, I could listen a wide range of genre of the music. Start from the very classic one until the rock one. Oh, not to forget, some of the music makes me feel like I live in the 70s * although I am not born yet in that era *

Not to mention, there are some songs from the ‘imaginary band’ from the movie who give life to the movie and the characters. Why I called it imaginary? because the band is not exist in reality, it came from the movie. They are Willematte Stone (which in the book called “Shooting Star”). * it kinda remind me of the band from anime BECK. They are imaginary band but their song is so great that many people really hope the band will exist in reality * Jamie Blackley (as the main vocalist of the band) really nailed all the song from the band.

Well, here are the song I could find from youtube. But I really recommend you all to buy the CD for it really worth every penny.
