Scarlett Johansson Is A Recording Star

Scarlett Johansson is in the spotlight with her new movie, Captain America: Winter Soldier, but we really want to shine the light on her recording career.  You may have heard her vocals in the Days of Grace soundtrack released by Lakeshore Records.  Featured in the George Gershwin standard, “Summertime,” remixed by Robert Del Naja (of Massive Attack) and Tim Goldsworthy, Johansson’s vocals are ethereal and not to be missed.  But, if by chance you haven’t heard it, we’ve got you covered.

The album also features a score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis (“The Road”; “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”), Academy Award-winner Atticus Ross (“The Social Network”; “The Book of Eli”) with Leopold Ross & Claudia Sarne, and Shigeru Umebayashi (The Grandmaster).

More to love: In the past two years, Johansson’s vocals have been associated with Oscar-nominated films such as Her in which she sings “Moon Song” (check out this acoustic version), and the Oscar-nominated climate documentary, Chasing Ice, in which she contributed her vocal talents to “Before My Time.”  We have a very good hunch that we will be hearing a lot more from her.

Blue Valentine: Ryan Gosling’s Earth-Shaking Movie – Download His Song!

Ryan Gosling sure knows how to steam things up.  Do you remember that amazing elevator kiss scene from Drive?  Ryan Gosling‘s “Driver” character gives “Irene” (Carey Mulligan) a prolonged, passionate kiss right before he saves the day by bashing a bad guy’s face in.  Gosling fans seeking more hotness from him will not be disappointed in Blue Valentine (watch it now on Netflix).  The Blue Valentine Soundtrack features great music by Grizzly Bear, Department of Eagles, Penny & the Quarters, and a bonus track by Ryan Gosling himself. 

Lakeshore Records: Blue Valentine

Blue Valentine is featured in a recent Rolling Stone article about some pivotal moments in history for the Millennial generation.  Read the article for details about that steamy scene in Blue Valentine, here: Coming of Age: Millennials’ Most Earth-Shaking Sexual Moments.
