50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack...I'm Disappointed :(
50 Shades of Grey, the Cultural Phenomenon...has been a big part of my life recently. My wife Kelly is/was/probably always will be OBSESSED with the series. When I heard there was a Soundtrack coming out, I started thinking about what songs should be on it.
You shared your ideas too, on the Text Off one day.
Let's Get It On, Red Light Special, Hurts So Good, S&M...think about it, they're all PERFECT to create an atmosphere for Erotica!
Apparently, the makers of the CD had other ideas. The soundtrack is all Classical songs. I'm sure some of them sound sexy, it's just not as fun without Rihanna saying dirty stuff, I guess.
If you're still interested, here's the track listing for the CD. It's available where fine music is sold!
