THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER SOUNDTRACK LIST With All 39 Songs From the Movie
Score by Michael Brook
From Air Supply to the Smiths, XTC, David Bowie and Dexy's Midnight Runners sure fire floor filler and dabblings from The Rocky Horror Picture Show are just some of the delicious retro treats included on The Perks of Being a Wallflower Soundtrack.
I'm proud to admit I remember these songs the first go around when they came out in the 80s and it's great to see "Come On Eileen" has that timeless kind of appeal to even get the most shy non-dancer to start stomping it up on the dance floor and inspiring mass dance floor karaoke singalongs to the chorus whooping up "Too-loo-rye-ay". The Dexys Midnight Runners song was the perfect song for the scene in the movie.
The movie's official album only includes 12 tracks from New Order, Cocteau Twins, Sonic Youth, Cracker, Samples, The Innocence Mission, Galaxie 500 along with a single track from the score by Michael Brook.
But there are a ton of other songs that you'll probably recognize from Love & Rockets, Morrissey, Crowded House, Pavement, Young MC, MC 900 Ft. Jesus and more.
If you're wondering about the song with the words "It's time to begin, isn't it...I'm never changing who I am" from the Soundtrack to the Perks of Being a Wallflower movie trailer, it's a song from Imagine Dragons called "It's Time". Thanks to J for identifying the other song on the movie's preview commercial as "We're On Our Way" by Radical Face.

Great use of Dexys Midnight Runners as the song that lures Logan Lerman to the dance floor.
The Original MTV Video That Caught Our Attention - "Come On Eileen"
The band makes wearing coveralls oh so hip as Kevin Rowland rocks out on the street corner while the band dances a jig, playing fiddle and generally busk on the sidewalk.
The original MTV video with the band in coveralls singing on the street corner.

Here's a great performance with Sara Bareilles and Sugarland covering this 80s classic.

Music Video "We're On Our Way" - Radical Face
Song in Perks of Being a Wallflower Trailer - "It's Time" Imagine Dragons
The song kind of reminds me of the soaring anthemic theme of "Tonight We Are Young" by Fun featuring Janelle Monae right down to the beginning percussive element. If you haven't seen it already, check out below the acoustic, unplugged version of It's Time where you can see the cool clapping intro.
Behind the Scenes Music Video - Imagine Dragons
In this behind the scenes video of the music video "It's Time", Imagine Dragons explains that the song is "about growing and adapting to changes and staying true to who you are at the same time". The theme rings true from the screen adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's best selling novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower
