I’m nearly finished reading the glorious novel Fifty Shades of Grey but now I wish I waited a couple weeks so I could read it while listening to this soundtrack. Author EL James curated the songs that Anastasia “Submissive” Steele and Christian “Dominant” Grey would listen during their saucy BDSM affair, on YouTube.
The playlist includes Britney Spears’ “Toxic” and Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire,” along with some classical picks. She conveniently included the specific scenes that the song would play over, for instance, Ana listens to Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire”when she’s driving back to WSU.
We’ll just have to see if they end up using any of the tracks in the anticipated movie. Unfortunately Emma Watson nixed rumours that she’s playing our main heroine, though Vampire Diaries’ star Ian Somerhalder said he’d be up for playing Christian Grey.
What do you think of the playlist? What song would you want to hear in the movie?
