Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland Soundtrack Track List Released


It is perfectly Tim Burton-esque to match intrigue, oddity, and vulnerability in a film that’s otherworldly (Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Beetlejuice), so we’re primed for a kooky twist on Lewis Carroll’s already wacky Alice in Wonderland when it comes out in March. But Burton fans are in for a surprise as they travel down the rabbit hole — not only will the film be released in Digital Disney 3D, but for the first time the director will be using popular and mainstream indie artists for the soundtrack. (Longtime Burton collaborator composer Danny Elfman, who won a Grammy for his work on Batman, will still be responsible for the original score, which you can preview here.)

Is Burton taking a risk with an angsty soundtrack that features original songs by Wolfmother, Owl City, Franz Ferdinand, and the Cure’s Robert Smith? Or will Almost Alice — a “re-imagining of songs from the Disney classic” and a companion piece to the film — be a welcome change for fans?

1. “Alice (Underground)” – Avril Lavigne 2. “The Poison” – The All-American Rejects 3. “The Technicolor Phase” – Owl City 4. “Her Name Is Alice” – Shinedown 5. “Painting Flowers” – All Time Low 6. “Where’s My Angel” – Metro Station 7. “Strange”- Tokio Hotel and Kerli 8. “Follow Me Down” – 3OH!3 featuring Neon Hitch 9. “Very Good Advice” – Robert Smith 10. “In Transit” – Mark Hoppus with Pete Wentz 11. “Welcome to Mystery” – Plain White T’s 12. “Tea Party” – Kerli 13. “The Lobster Quadrille” – Franz Ferdinand 14. “Running Out of Time” – Motion City Soundtrack 15. “Fell Down a Hole” – Wolfmother 16. “White Rabbit”- Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
