The U.S. Becoming Jane OST

I really gotta go to Bedfordshire... but I bumped into this info from the U.S. Official Site: Becoming Jane OST. It contains 23 tracks, the same with the U.K. OST that I bought from HMV UK, just different cover. The price is $ 12.97 in Amazon.com, to be released on July 31, 2007, which is only a few days away. Price is cheaper than the U.K. one, if converted. But I did not regret buying the U.K. version... for it allowed me three months of indulgence.

But of course (sigh...) no track of that second ball in the U.S. OST either. Really, guys... we really want to listen to the music of the second ball. Why is it not included here, I know not...

Nonetheless, the music is great, the tracks are lovely... so you should get it. My fave are Bond Street Airs, A Game of Cricket, Basingstoke Assembly, Selbourne Wood and Laverton Fair. Lovely music.... making you wanna dance.

I really want to know what that track is not on there. It does not make any sense.
I agree on the tracks Icha; my favourite is definitely 'Selbourne Wood.' Have to say I do also love the more emotive ones such as 'Rose Garden' and 'The Loss of Yours.' Oh I love them all!

Icha said...

Yeah... aren't they lovely? The only hope now for the dancing score is to get the DVD, see the title of that score (the dancing one), and rummage through the web to find such a score. Or just copy it directly from the DVD.

Do you know which song are used in the US Trailer? Is it on the soundtrack? I really love those songs very much. Thank you!!

Icha said...

I don't think the songs in the US Trailers are in the OST... some of the scores are NOT in the OST... including my fave ballroom music

(eyes scrutinizing at Julian Jarrold & Adrian Johnston for explanation...:-D )

Ployathina said...

That's a shame. Well actually, do you know if the background music from the US site is on the soundtrack?? That's one of the songs I like. Thanks again!!

Icha said...

Not sure, really. But an IMDB poster said it's Dido (Don't Leave Home). I'm not sure it's correct or not... have to check first.

The song is similar to the flash played by the US Official Site if you enter their site.

Well, thank you very much. If you find out, you would be my hero. I cannot wait to see it, I actually stumbled on the trailer when I was browsing apple's quicktime trailer site, and let me tell you how quickly I fell in love with it.... 1/4 into the trailer. I'm so excited to see it, I can't wait.

I also love the music from the trailer. Its the same music from the website becomingjane-themovie.com i think. Does anyone know the songs name? I listened to the soundtrack on itunes but i don;t think i heard it. thanks so much.

Icha said...

I'm really not sure, Spencer... sorry for that. But perhaps other people can help? I will also ask a friend who manages the US site for the soundtrack in the website. It's lovely, is it not?

Also, have a look in this Purcell thread for more info on the dance score:

Spencer said...

thanks so much.

Spencer said...

also do we know the name of the song from the trailer... its starts at 1:20 and runs through the end... they are my favorite songs from the movie! hope to hear back from anyone.

Icha said...

That, I don;t know either :-(

Anyone can help Spencer?

I've emailed the manager of the US Official Site, hope to hear from her this Monday.

Spencer said...

your the best.

Spencer said...

does anyone have any leads?

Icha said...

On that music in the website? No, the US site has not replied yet. Sobs. I'm forwarding this to Michelle, my musical detective (or musician detective?) to investigate the source. Like me, she also loves sleuthing.

Sorry Spencer... I'm not a good detective for music...

Hi there, I love BJ so much!! So I google the information about BJ, then I found this blog, it's super!! Thank you, Michelle, Rachel and Icha, you really did a great job!!

I've been looking for the music in US trailer, it seems no one knows anything about these 2 pieces of music. Why?? They are so beautiful....

Could anybody help us????

Ni hao, Vivi! Thanks for dropping by and for your support. Unfortunately, I have not got hints about the music in the US trailer... one is from Dido, I guess, but I forgot the name. The second one, do you mean the opening music of the US website? That we also don't know.
