Remember Me Soundtrack (Songs) - Listen & Download
The Remember Me soundtrack. Robert Pattinson is, at this moment in time, two things: middle of the road, and the bringer of supreme financial success. He’s not unengaging either. There’s a certain smouldering quality about him. And Remember Me looks okay, in a generic angsty romance sort of way, although Emilie De Ravin, cute and likable though she is, is hardly a big-name co-star. But it’s hard to see him taking the kind of risks that for instance a young Leonardo Di Caprio took with films like The Basketball Diaries and Baz Luhrman’s populist but radical take on Romeo & Juliet. It seems Pattinson is capitalising on his meteoric appeal to the teenage girl market by shaping himself in the James Dean mould – that of the smouldering soulful rebel and romantic icon. And he’s exec producing, so he really means it

But the film hardly seems radical, and it’s helmed by a television director. More often than not a TV director is someone who can put tab A into slot B, and not a lot else. This one also directed Hollywoodland. Say it loud, say it proud – middle of the road

And the Remember Me soundtrack gets off to a pretty dull start. Luscious Jackson compete for simultaneous worst band name and song title with ‘Alien Lover’, Kottonmouth Kings supply the standard rubbish generic hip-hoppery for a mainstream studio picture trying to appeal to a youth market in the 21st century (you can almost hear the marketing meeting now – ‘what are the kids listening to these days? Is rap music still big? Do they still like Flava Flav?’), and then there’s National Skyline, who appear to be a bunch of middle class white American kids with a singer doing a Chris Cornell impression minus the smack addiction (when did people stop wanting to copy Soundgarden and start wanting to copy Chris Cornell’s solo career? Did I miss a how-to-rock meeting?). Also there’s some cloying vocals to a chilled blues backing from Ani Difranco and something that sounds like one of the more forgettable tracks from the OC by Two Ton Boa.

And why is Remember Me scored by such a mix of risk averse contemporary indie, rock and hip hop? To appeal to as many youths as possible. There is no love in this soundtrack. Keep on saying it – middle of the road

But then again, there’s Ed Harcourt, The Promise Ring and Sparklehorse, who all have something to say for themselves, plus Britpop luminaries Supergrass who are at the we’ve-supported-Radiohead level of awesomeness. Which is to say quite awesome. And Sigur Ros, who as you all should know are one of the finest ambient post-rock bands of all time. But the overall impression is of a bloodless, spiritless collection of also-rans plus some lesser tracks from a few decent outfits.

What they should have done is asked The Witch & The Robot to do the entire soundtrack. That would have been worth listening to. And if you don’t know who they are, go educate yourselves – they’re a hell of a lot better than Two Ton Boa, Kottonmouth Kings and Ani Difranco. But then, as we know, if Robert Pattinson were a band, he wouldn’t be the coolest band you’ve heard this year, and he wouldn’t be Joy Division. He may listen to them, but he wouldn’t be them, personificationally speaking. No, the tweenage heartthrob from the pretty-boy vampire movies is Two Ton Boa incarnate. With the addition of supreme financial success, which I’d hazard a guess may evade Two Ton Boa – and possibly the film too.

(If I wasn’t clear, The Witch & The Robot are the coolest band I’ve heard this year, and they should be making soundtracks. Spread the word.)

    Does anyone know who sings the song for the trailer for Remember Me (the trailer that is shown on tv not the offical one that you can find online). It’s female voice and the commericals are always so short I can’t really even get but a few words to the song.

      The piano piece in the scene with the towers is called “I know you can hear me” by Marcelo zarvos. Good piece, but sad.
