Silver Linings Playbook Official Motion Picture Soundtrack

A lovely mix of old and new

Silver Linings

Text: Sherman Yang

From the film that’s been sweeping awards this season (go Jennifer Lawrence!) and has received multiple nominations as well, comes a soundtrack album filled with a stellar ensemble of artistes. From Motown legends to today’s pop starlets, the album gets two thumbs up from us too.

Multi Grammy Award winner Stevie Wonder lends his classic soul song ‘My Cherie Amour’ to the soundtrack. Originally released in 1969, the touching love song about waiting for that girl to tell you she loves you too is sweet and heart-warming.

The folk song ‘Girl From The North Country’ performed by legends Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash is a classic hit from the 60s. Yet another amazing love song on the album, the album fills our hearts with plenty of emotions.

Rising star Jessie J lends her voice to the soundtrack with ‘Silver Lining (Crazy 'Bout You)’. Showcasing her amazing vocal talent in a track that’s less dance-pop than her chart toppers, Jessie J delivers a stunning love song. With a mix of piano and synthesizers, the lead single from the soundtrack is a lovely audio representation of the film.

Try not to listen to ‘Walking Home’ on your way home if you’ve had a bad day. The slow oohs and sombre tones of the instrumental track would make you even more emotional.

And well, if you don’t like the mix of music in the album as much as we do, just look at Bradley Cooper’s face on the album cover and all will be perfect.

Recommended tracks: Silver Lining (Crazy ‘Bout You), My Cherie Amour, Girl From The North Country
