Fifty Shades of Grey Classical Album: Compiled By EL James!

by at . Comments

EL James is coming out with a companion album of sorts for 50 Shades of Grey ... classical style, not bow-chick-a-bow-wow, body-slapping style.

Unlike the Fifty Shades of Grey “soundtrack” playlist presented on the bestselling author’s official site, this record will feature strictly classical music.

Sadly, it does not include Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis reading 50 Shades of Grey passages, although honestly that could sell millions.

Take a look at the brief video trailer for the album below...

EJ James personally selected 15 works she said inspired her trilogy (Fifty Shades of Grey, Darker and Freed) to include on the special album.

James is “thrilled that the classical pieces that inspired me while I wrote [Fifty Shades] are being brought together in one collection for all lovers of the books to enjoy.”

The album “aims to provide the perfect accompaniment to the Fifty Shades experience, setting a mysterious, alluring atmosphere with just the slightest hint of danger…”

Follow the jump for the OFFICIAL track listing of composers who no doubt dreamed that centuries after their death, their music would be used as the backdrop for Christian Grey ransacking Ana Steele's body night in and night out ...

Wow , Michelle. Your language is that of a whore. I imagine you play out the part of the lead lady in 50 shades to several different women. I know the County I live in has pretty much done all they can do to ban the book because we dont want idiots like you having play parties and one of you idiots getting our younger crowd involved and maybe your stupid bdsm acts killing them. Find a nice life
