Forthcoming "Star Trek" Soundtrack


Star Trek - Music from the Motion Picture
Music by Michael Giacchino
Release Date: 5 May 2009
List Price: $17.98

I haven't heard anything from this soundtrack, so this is not a review.  Rather, this is simply a heads up for anyone who might be interested.  Giacchino's track titles are interesting, and don't have anything obviously spoilerish to them (unlike, say, Dennis McCarthy's soundtrack for Star Trek Generations).  Here are the track titles, with running times (courtesy of record label Varese Sarabande's website):
  1. Star Trek (1:03)
  2. Nailin' the Kelvin (2:09)
  3. Labor of Love (2:51)
  4. Hella Bar Talk (1:55)
  5. Enterprising Young Men (2:39)
  6. Nero Sighted (3:23)
  7. Nice to Meld You (3:13)
  8. Run and Shoot Offense (2:04)
  9. Does It Still McFly? (2:03)
  10. Nero Death Experience (5:38)
  11. Nero Fiddles, Narada Burns (2:34)
  12. Back from Black (0:59)
  13. That New Car Smell (4:46)
  14. To Boldly Go (0:26)*
  15. End Credits (9:11)*
*Contains Theme from "Star Trek" TV series written by Alexander Courage and Gene Roddenberry.

Noting that only two of fifteen tracks include Courage's iconic theme, I recall that David Arnold's score for 2006's Casino Royale hinted at, but did not actually include Monty Norman's famed "James Bond Theme" until the very end of that film.  No word yet on any retailer exclusive, special digital content, etc. so it appears that only one standard release is forthcoming.  If I learn of anything, though, I'll be sure to post it.

I mean, really, how can you not be interested in a movie with a soundtrack that includes a song called "Does It Still McFly?"
