**UPDATE note 6/24/13 ** Amazon track listing omits Barry White's song (#6) there are 11 tracks on the CD, not 10.
Missing are (at least):
1. Theme from "A Summer Place" (1959 movie) #1 Billboard Hit (instrumental / arr. Percy Faith) for the year 1960.
2. Paranoid (by Black Sabbath)
3. Crocodile Rock (by Elton John)
4. Superfly (by Curtis Mayfield)
5. Go All The Way (cover, by The Killers; orig. = Raspberries) ... It is excellent, by the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pickin', Grinnin', Lovin' and Sinnin' May 17, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
As the movie is set in the 70's this is a nice mix of songs to compliment things. Even gives you a real bit of nostalgia if you're either of a certain age or an original Dark Shadows fan. But let's face it- when you mix The Carpenters with Barry White, Alice Cooper, T.Rex and even some of Danny Elfman's score tracks, you're really pushing the envelope. lol It's still a good match for the movie's mix of campiness and gothic spook, and kinda fun in its own right.

This is the soundtrack album for the 2012 Dark Shadows movie is the album that
features pop-rock music from the 1970s such as The Moody Blues, Carpenters, Alice Cooper, Barry White, etc..
The original score composed by Danny Elfman for the 2012 movie is featured on the separate score CD.

It is nice to see Tim Burton and Johnny Depp paying tribute to Dark Shadows, even if some oldtime and overly-
protective fans may not care for their affectionate attempt to add more humor to the highly dramatized style of Dark Shadows.
While the 2012 film is certainly not perfect, it is a fascinating blend that Tim Burton and Johnny Depp put together --
a huge undertaking to bring Dark Shadows to a new audience and not simply try and pointlessly photocopy the original.

The vintage songs from the era in which the movie is set, 1972, are terrific timepieces and all still sound fresh today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent period music and nice original pieces. May 16, 2012

A nice mix of contemporary pieces and dark original pieces. Well worth the price for some excellent music. Go see the film as well, the performance by Alice cooper is reason enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where oh where is "Go All The Way"? August 22, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I'm searching high and low for the movie's closing credit song "Go All The Way"; a cover of the Raspberries song done by The Killers. They not only nail this song, it, in my opinion, is better than the original (although the original is very good too). I can't find this song for download ANYWHERE! Seriously?????

I would buy this album in a heartbeat but they didn't put the Killers cover of the Raspberries song "Go all the way" on it. It played during the credits and I would love to have the song be part of the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good songs May 18, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Great songs from the 60s and 70s...I admit quite an unusual mix. This would be perfect if it had the Killer's cover of Go All The Way.

2.0 out of 5 stars dark shadows soundtrack May 28, 2013
By Me
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
the soundtrack was not what we really thought it would be most the good songs are not on this sound track , superfly, go all the way, and a few more songs are not on it , its to bad it would have been a great sound track if it only had all the songs that was in the movie.
