All 10 Songs from the I Am Number Four Soundtrack
There are 10 songs in I Am Number Four, but zero songs on the I Am Number Four soundtrack album because they didn’t release one. That’s unfortunate; almost as unfortunate as the fact that few people are probably going to see the movie. It’s actually better than the critics gave it credit for.
I Am Number Four starts off with Kings of Leon, followed closely by The Black Keys. Not a bad start; not bad at all. Follow that up with Adele, The xx and The Temper Trap, and all of a sudden you have one hell of a soundtrack. Beck is also in there. He is consistently brilliant, even if his songs usually miss radio play. His song “Curfew” is on I Am Number Four. If you get hooked, also check out Volcano and Girl. You will not be disappointed.
Among all of the songs, the one that most people will be looking for is “Letters from the Sky” by Civil Twilight. It is featured in the trailer for I Am Number Four as well as the closing scene of the movie. I had not heard of Civil Twilight before I saw the TV ads for the movie, but it is one of the reasons why I saw the movie in the first place. It’s rare that the music producer and the ad agency see eye-to-eye on music. Usually songs from one do not find there way into the other. But thankfully, the trailer pays off in the movie in a perfect song, perfect scene kind of way.
