Title: Uglies Soundtrack
Post by: bizarronivla12 on August 20, 2011, 12:18:09 PM
When the Uglies movie is made what kind of music do you think will
be on the soundtrack??? House, trance, dance, pop, alternative???

Also, what would be on Tally & Shay's iPod???

Alternative all the way!!!  Although there are a few rock and pop songs that go well.  I like Paramore and Muse songs the best for the series.

Sounds good, any songs in particular you'd like to see on the album???
How about themes for the characters.

I could imagine some annoying pop music for Pretty Town (lady Gaga/katy perry) but I think alternative for the smoke. The ideal would be epic classical music for the journey to the smoke (I always imagined that as a sequence with music over the top rather than a scene by scene thing) The music for the party should be futuristic.  ;)

I totally agree with you dark, it'll probably end up with all kinds of pop, but some score and alt would definitely make up for it.

Just finished Uglies last night. Liked it! yes I was wrong, and I admit it. Now I gotta go buy pretties when I get some money.

For Prettytown, most stuff composed by Towa Tei. That's what I'd play if I wanted to brainwash people. It's techno, futuristic, easy listening. Check his corroboration with Kylie Minogue "German Bold Italic" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbcTp6hvhsU). It fits well, doesn't it? For the Smoke, I'm thinking acoustic guitar and tribal drumming. Operatic goth rock and/or remixed classical fugues for when we get really deep into the Specials' world.

I agree with lots of pop/futuristic/techno for New Pretty Town. Some pop, some alternative, maybe even some punk rock for Uglyville (depending on the scene). Alternative and maybe even folk or country for the Smoke.

And I was just listening to  Runaway (http://youtu.be/mHoJoOqerQ0) by Pink and it seemed like it belonged on Shay's playlist. Might fit for the scene when Tally runs away, but it seemed to be more Shay's emotions than Tally's.

Citadel (http://youtu.be/1YQuwnTFkQ8 Citadel) by Anna Nalick fits for when Shay is going to runaway with her friends and chickens out, if the movie is like the manga and shows Shay's view point.

Bullet (http://youtu.be/huVuWnLi8Yc Bullet) By Steel Train kind of reminds me of Zane when he's with Tally in the city.

Yeah, I'm just going through all the songs I recently listened to in my head and trying to see where they'd fit in the story. :P

It would make my life if they played Only Prettier by Miranda Lambert in the movie.

Electronic & pop!
I was just listening to Sunrise by The Cataracs ft. Dev and it reminded me of 2 scenes.
1) Tally sneaking in to Prettyville at the beginning of Uglies.
2) Tally's party scenes as a pretty.

Ok for some reason today i thought about Don't  Stop Beliving by Journey when i was read the last chapter of Uglies today,(final i got down reading it for the tenth time(its an innside thing).

I forget if I said this, but two songs by Jem; 24 and They.

Both seem to set the mood for some scenes in the book in my mind~ *nodnod*

maybe some stuff by neon trees, but its going to be kind of hard to make a movie of these books, extras would be the hardest to make

this is gonna be kinda embarrassing, but... every time I hear the song "You make me feel..." by Cobra Starship, I think of Tally and Zane. It's kinda pop-y, like how I imagined New Pretty town would sound like, and it's talking about how they make each other feel bubbly. I wouldn't mind it on the soundtrack.

For parties I imagined house music like Calvin Harris (especially I need your love feat. Ellie Goulding, the best song EVER)
