A Million Stars

If I am you, and you are me
Then I know the world will see
that I was weak
but now I’m strong
This will be a different song

So here I am
The better man
not the one you thought I am
and here we are, not the same
’cause tonight I win this game

So hold me tight
’cause a million stars could die tonight
and when they’re gone
there’ll be nothing for you to wish upon
a million stars depend on us tonight

I count on you
You count on me
Just this one please let it be.
And catch me if I’m falling down
One last chance to wear this crown

There’s nothing left for me to say
Dreams come true if we pray
I’m reaching for the milky way
A superstar is born today

So hold me tight
’cause a million stars could die tonight
and when they’re gone
There’ll be nothing for you to wish upon
A million stars depend on us tonight.

Filled with nuggets of drippy ’80s-inspired synth and plenty of mystery, the soundtrack seems to be just the beginning of Dost’s career in composing. –Music Times

Andrew Dost’s Score Captures The Themes Of Turmoil, Angst And Nostalgia In ‘The D Train’

 

Andy McCluskey (OMD), Rob Kroehler (Ladylike), Jack Antonoff (fun.) and Andrew Dost (fun.) have formed a formidable pop collective for “A Million Stars”, a tune drenched in ‘80s sheen, which features on the soundtrack to the Jack Black and James Marsden comedy The D Train. McCluskey, Antonoff, and Dost harmonize together splendidly, no doubt due in part to the latter two’s proclivity for harmonized vocals in the music of fun. Above all else, though, it’s the stylistics of OMD that shine through most resoundingly on “A Million Stars”; both the chorus and the synths used throughout the tune are highly reminiscent of OMD’s most recent LP, 2013’s English Electric (which we here at PopMatters are big fans of). –PopMatters

 

 

Lakeshore Records is very pleased to release The D Train (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) featuring original score by Andrew Dost (of fun.) and the end title song, “A Million Stars” featuring vocals by Andy McCluskey of iconic English band, OMD.  Watch the official Lyric Video for “A Million Stars” — now premiering on PopMatters!  The The D Train album also features 1980s hits by various artists including Candlelight, Foreigner, INXS, OMD and more!  See full soundtrack details below.  The D Train starring Jack Black and James Marsden opens in select theaters on Friday, May 8!
