Thanks Seasons for adding the tracks. Not sure if we should create a page for the tracks not yet out yet, so that's being left for now. Anyone agree/disagree/comment? sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 14:39, 17 September 2010 (PDT)

well, all those red links will look pretty ugly until the 28th... - seasonsinthesky 09:27, 18 September 2010 (PDT)
i know you will ignore it, but i'll try to suggest... because these songs are all one-offs and not nin, maybe it'll be wiser to leave every song description on this Soundtrack page (within show/hide tags) and set redirects to 1 page? BenAkenobi 09:44, 18 September 2010 (PDT)
Well, then we'd have to do the same to Quake, Driver Down, Videodrones;Questions... Having a page for each track is fine, the same logic would apply to HTDA too after all sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 11:32, 18 September 2010 (PDT)
as for Quake and Lost Highway tracks, it absolutely wouldn't hurt (especially for Quake - separate pages as they are now are begging to be merged), as for HTDA separate pages are alright because they're not a movie score but normal songs with lyrics BenAkenobi 11:44, 18 September 2010 (PDT)

Very useful addition to the discussion, thank you good sir :) BenAkenobi 07:26, 6 October 2010 (PDT)
Just because pages aren't fully written up, doesn't mean they should be stubs. The idea of a wiki is to be comprehensive, and putting some of Reznor's work aside simply because it's instrumental seems self defeating. I'd love to see every track page have a write up as detailed as Closer's, but for now I think we can cope with a few stubs sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 11:33, 6 October 2010 (PDT)

Correlation with the Movie

Should we put in a section for each track that shortly discusses the scene in which the song was used for the movie? Ie: Magnetic was used for the scene introducing Justin Timberlake's character. The title could have something to do with how Mark Zuckerburg was infatuated with everything Timberlake's character had said and was drawn to his ideas. etc etc... We could even wait to do this for when the film comes out on DVD to be more accurate. Jgrizzy89 11:57, 3 October 2010 (PDT)

Saying where the track synchs is fine (although waiting for home releases might be wise), but I wouldn't analyse the titles, we don't know why he named them thus sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 13:08, 3 October 2010 (PDT)


I know that on this page you've mentioned the mislabeling of In Motion and A Familiar Taste but I noticed on the songs' individual pages that we've gone along with it and I was wondering why we wouldn't mark it correctly and say like as a footnote or whatever that it's mislabeled on the album on their respective pages?

err, the individual song pages have the correct information ("In Motion" has no mention of 35 Ghosts, and "A Familiar Taste" lists it as an alternate version). however, if you'd like to add a note about the mislabelling to the individual song pages (perhaps just in the introductory information on the pages), please do. - seasonsinthesky 12:58, 14 February 2011 (PST)


How many songs on the soundtrack are Ghosts songs (or include music from a Ghosts song)? Two? RobertM525 07:33, 10 April 2011 (UTC)

Only two on the soundtrack. However, a couple of other Ghosts were used in the film, not included on the OST sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 10:04, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
