Title: “Dead Hearts”
Artist: Stars
Source: “Like Crazy” Soundtrack (2011)
+ “The Five Ghosts” Album (2010)

Not only was “Like Crazy” one of my favorite films of the year (tied with “Drive” as number one), but it also had one of my favorite soundtracks of the year. It’s topped off with the song “Dead Hearts” by Stars which pops up during the credits; if you were not already emotional enough by the end of the film, you get a fresh rush of emotions with this beautiful song. When one piece can encapsulate an entire movie, it proves successful.

Having opened for Coldplay, Canadian band Stars is also heavily involved in the band Broken Social Scene. Stars have graced television shows like Gossip Girl, The O.C., and Chuck. “Like Crazy” appears to be one of the first films they have been featured in, driving the film’s promotional trailer with singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson.
