EW staffers have been listening to Christmas music since early November, so it was music to our ears when shows started cranking up our holiday favorites this week. Or were we? Some of this week’s “show tunes” turned out to be downright ho-ho-horrifying.

So, if you’ve been wondering “What’s that song?” while watching your favorite shows, we’re here to tell you. Check out our picks and the full Spotify playlist below. (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: SPOILERS ahead!) READ FULL STORY

From 'Pitch Perfect' to 'Sparkle': The best (and worst) soundtracks of 2012

It was a great year for music on the silver screen in some ways — mainstream flicks featuring hot new artists; and weaker in others — favorite singers being massacred in cover-land. Here are our picks for the best soundtracks of 2012, complete with a Spotify playlist to rock you through it — and a few of the worst (we spared you the playlist for that one).

Best of 2012

Pitch Perfect – Fresh and inspired, with mash-ups that Glee would kill for, this ode to collegiate a cappella gave us – and anyone who enjoys harmonies – something to sing about.

Katy Perry: Part of Me – The pop album that just wouldn’t quit got a nice compliment with the 3-D concert film. The Part of Me soundtrack gave a new listening experience to everything from “Firework” to newer stuff like “Wide Awake.” Not to mention, it’s just plain fun.

Skyfall – Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard Adele’s slow-burner of a Bond theme. But the soundtrack is more than just that hit single – thank goodness.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 – The Twilight soundtracks are always an eclectic mix of musicians and genres, and the fifth and final is no exception. Standouts include Green Day’s “The Forgotten” and “Bittersweet,” by Ellie Goulding.

Ryan Adams reboots 'Shining Through the Dark' for 'This Is 40' soundtrack: Hear it here -- EXCLUSIVE

Over a year ago, alt country’s favorite heartbreaker, Ryan Adams, unleashed the swoon-worthy “Shine Through the Dark” for a charity compilation. Among the swooned? Judd Apatow.

The Knocked Up director’s upcoming dramedy This Is 40 doesn’t hit theaters until Dec. 21, but the movie’s soundtrack is out Dec. 11 (you can pre-order it here). New material from the likes of cultishly beloved ’70s rocker Graham Parker (who has a pivotal cameo in the movie) and Lindsay Buckingham tends to do that, but one of the album’s highlights is Adams’ live recording of the song (now titled “Shining Thorough the Dark”), which you can hear exclusively here. (And if you do go see the movie, you might see Adams again, is all we’ll say. Spoiler alert!)

The forlornly folky track finds the singer doing what he does best: turning sad, blue stories into amazing, gold songs. Give the This Is 40 soundtrack song a listen below and let us know what you think of it in the comments:

OMFOGG! 'Gossip Girl' plans Frank Ocean-only soundtrack

Keep your ears perked, Upper East Siders. The dulcet tones of R&B crooner Frank Ocean will wash over Monday’s episode of Gossip Girl. Underscoring one of the show’s signature big-event eps (playfully titled “Monstrous Ball”), Ocean’s hit “Thinkin Bout You” will be featured alongside other Channel Orange tracks “Lost,” “Super Rich Kids,” “Pyramids,” and “Sweet Life.” It’s not only the first time The CW tentpole has exclusively featured a single artist during a broadcast, it’s also the first time one of Ocean’s songs has been featured on a TV series.

Gossip Girl‘s all-Ocean ep airs Monday, Nov. 12, as 9 p.m. ET.

Lady Gaga, Prince to appear on Baz Luhrmann's 'Great Gatsby' soundtrack

Baz Luhrmann’s blinged-out retelling of The Great Gatsby was going to be this year’s big Christmas movie until it got bumped into next year. But that might be for the best — since it’s apparently given the filmmaker plenty of time to nail down some major crazy names for the soundtrack.

According to actress Adelaide Clemens, there will be contributions from both Lady Gaga and Prince. “They have some new music that’s going to be added to the film,” Clemens told Indiewire during press rounds for her forthcoming movie Silent Hill Revelation 3D. “Some pretty huge artists have approached Baz and are writing songs for the film, and I don’t think Warner Bros. are going to turn down Prince and Lady Gaga knocking down your door. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that.” READ FULL STORY
