LOL Soundtrack 2012 Features Foster the People, Keane, Ingrid Michaelson & The Rolling Stones
U.S. Movie Starring Miley Cyrus & Demi Moore
Keane's ubiquitous "Somewhere Only We Know" song along with Foster the People, Ingrid Michaelson, The Rolling Stones, BB Brunes plus the retro-sounding The Big Bang are included on the LOL 2012 Soundtrack for the U.S. version of the movie. Miley Cyrus' chance to shine is on a power ballad called "Giving You Up".
The song "Hearts On Fire" otherwise known as "I've Been Crazy For You All This Time" featured in the movie's trailer is actually sung by Jonathan Clay while in the movie actor Douglas Booth lip syncs his performance to Clay's voice. Although Clay didn't write any of the songs for the movie, according to his blog you'll hear him perform at least four songs on the 2012 LOL O.S.T. If you find Douglas dreamy, like Twilight's Robert Pattinson and Les Miserable's Eddie Redmayne, it turns out he's English, too look for him in an upcoming re-boot of Romeo & Juliet where he plays Romeo opposite Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) tentatively scheduled for release July 26, 2013 in the U.K. and September 6, 2013 in the U.S.
From the Twilight Saga, there's fan favorite Ashley Greene while the rest of the cast includes Thomas Jane (Hung), Jay Hernandez (Takers), Nora Dunn (SNL), Gina Gershon (P.S. I Love You), Fisher Stevens (Awake) and Austin Nichols (One Tree Hill). The cast also includes Douglas Booth (Worried About the Boy), Adam Sevani (Step Up 2 & 3D), George Finn (90210) and Ashley Hinshaw (Gossip Girl), along with Lina Esco and Tanz Watson.
LOL made a brief run at the box office at the beginning of May 2012 with little support from Lionsgate Entertainment before it was released internationally then on DVD & Blu Ray on July 31, 2012. It's now available to watch instantly on Netflix. If you enjoyed the story LOL, you can actually enjoy it two ways, both with Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore as well as the original French version with the mother and daughter played by Sophie Marceau and Christa Theret.
Or, if you just want to see more Miley, check out So Undercover co-starring Jeremy Piven (The Entourage )and Alexis Knapp. Miley got the shrift on this movie as Weinstein Company scuttled the theatrical release and just punted it straight to home video in February 2013 where you can watch it online or on DVD .
Look for Demi Moore in the upcoming release Very Good Girls where she plays another Mom. Her co-stars are Dakota Fanning & Elizabeth Olsen, Richard Dreyfuss and Peter Sarsgaard. So far the movie has only screened in the U.S. at the Sundance Film Festival. Here's hoping it'll be released sometime in 2013 either in theaters or perhaps direct to DVD.
And in case you missed these movies when they came out and are craving to see more of Demi Moore, then check out some of these films. Demi plays the office ice queen effortlessly in a minor part in Margin Call in a brilliant drama co-starring Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons & Simon Baker. There's also her all-time nasty girl role in Disclosure with Michael Douglas where she tears apart his picture perfect marriage and office life by revealing their unseemly affair. Oh, and one more...The Joneses with David Duchonvy released in 2010 was a marvelous, original story that's totally worth seeing on DVD.

"Giving You Up"
Miley Cyrus Song in LOL
The movie features a lovely simple acoustic track with Miley belting out heartfelt lyrics about "Giving You Up". If you wondering which album it's available on, you won't find it anywhere. It's Miley without all the flash and glam, it's just her and her voice.
According to idolator.com, it's actually a song that was supposed to be on the album Breakout that was released in 2008 but it ended up not making the cut. Lucky for us, Cyrus was able to pull it from her slush pile and include it in the movie. How convenient for her. It was released on the internet and you can listen to it here.
Despite all of Miley's growing pains, controversy about her hair and engagement, this track is a reminder of how at the heart of things, she's still a fabulous singer. Mind you though, this is in Miley's pre-Twerking days before her controversial MTV awards performance where she raunched up the stage with singer Robin Thicke.
Check out the lyrics to the song here and a full audio version as well.
