All 15 Songs from Transformers Dark of the Moon Soundtrack
There are 15 songs in Transformers Dark of the Moon as well as an additional 8 songs that are on the soundtrack album but weren’t actually in the movie. In fact, there are only three songs from the movie on the soundtrack album, which is a damn shame because there are a number of really good songs that the album completely misses. Among the songs missing from the Transformers Dark of the Moon soundtrack are U2’s North Star, Aerosmith’s Sweet Emotion and Biffy Clyro’s Many of Horror (live version below).
And here’s U2. I can’t find the download for the song North Star, but I hope a live version via video suffices:
I liked Transformers 3 better than the second movie but not quite as much as the first. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is an apt replacement for Megan Fox. She walks on screen and stares through the scene just as well. I was actually a bit surprised that her part was as big as it was.
While the producers of Transformers Dark of the Moon may have fallen for Rosie, the music producers were smitten with two songs in particular, playing them repeatedly throughout the movie. U2’s North Star is the first song in the movie, playing when Carlye gives Sam a stuffed animal bunny rabbit. It also plays when Sam visits Carlye at work. Linkin Park’s Iridescent plays when Sam and the crew are driving to Chicago to save Carlye and also as the first song during the end credits.
