A Soulful Soundtrack

After seeing two superb movies, Silver Linings Playbook with Oscar winning actor Jennifer Lawrence (picture) and Flight with Oscar nominated actor Denzel Washington, I got inspired to create this mix. All of the tracks have big parts in movies, although the male character in Silver Linings Playbook, played by Bradley Cooper, hates ‘My Cherie Amour’ from Stevie Wonder… It’s nice to see Denzel Washington putting in a tape and listening to ‘Ain’t no sunshine’ from Bill Withers in Flight (don't see that movie if you have a fear of flying...). Enjoy!
