    Over the weekend a file was leaked onto the internet featuring 4 songs (in full) from the movie Nine (“Unusual Way” sung by Griffith Frank [in the film the song is sung by Nicole Kidman, but apparently this version is featured on the soundtrack along with Kidman’s film version; Griffith Frank is a new artist signed to Geffen Records], “Cinema Italiano” by Kate Hudson, “Take It All” by Marion Cotillard, and “Be Italian” by Fergie). I stumbled upon this by way of the IMDB message boards for the film, there was a download link but I’m not sure if I should share it…since it is illegal. The songs are all on YouTube now so anyone interested can hear them there.

    Also, the song that was to be featured on the Precious soundtrack, 100% by Mariah Carey, leaked sometime last week. Even though it’s not in the running for “Best Original Song” anymore, I thought some people would maybe like to hear it anyway. That’s on YouTube as well.

    I know this really has nothing to do with anything posted here, but this seemed like a more neutral area so I just decided on here.
