'Fifty Shades of Grey' Soundtrack Includes Sinatra, Beyonce, Rolling Stones, and More

Fifty Shades of Grey has unzipped and whipped out a full list of songs on its sultry, slow-burn soundtrack, including two tracks from four-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman, who provides the score.

You may have heard that the MPAA slapped a rating on this cinematic slice of eroticism that began as Twilight fan-fiction. 

While the filmmakers have repeatedly downplayed the "mommy porn" aspects of the story, the rating makes it clear that director Sam Taylor-Johnson hasn't gone too respectable, since Fifty Shades of Grey is rated R for "strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity, and for language."

Does "unusual behavior" include the novel's infamous tampon scene, we wonder?

It's sort of hard to imagine songs by Frank Sinatra, Annie Lennox, or Beyonce accompanying that particular turn of events.  As you can tell from those names alone, Fifty Shades of Grey had a substantial budget to license music, one big enough to also snag the amusingly on-the-noise "Beast of Burden" by The Rolling Stones, as well as tracks by newer acts like The Weeknd, Sia, and AWOLNATION.

Thanks to Republic Records and Film Music Reporter, you can peruse all sixteen tracks included on the adaptation's soundtrack, which goes on sale February 10th, just before Fifty Shades of Grey gets handsy in theaters on February 13th.

1. I Put a Spell On You – Annie Lennox
2. Undiscovered – Laura Welsh
3. Earned It – The Weeknd
4. Meet Me In the Middle – Jessie Ware
5. Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding
6. Haunted (Michael Diamond Remix) – Beyoncé
7. Salted Wound – Sia
8. Beast of Burden – The Rolling Stones
9. I’m On Fire – AWOLNATION
10. Crazy In Love (2014 Remix) – Beyoncé
11. Witchcraft – Frank Sinatra
12. One Last Night – Vaults
13. Where You Belong – The Weeknd
14. I Know You – Skylar Grey
15. Anna and Christian – Danny Elfman
16. Did That Hurt? – Danny Elfman

Dakota Johnson stars in Fifty Shades of Grey as Anastasia Steele, a sheltered college student on the cusp of graduation, and Jamie Dornan plays Christian Grey, an enigmatic 27-year-old BDSM-loving billionaire.  After sparks fly in an unexpected interview for her school newspaper, a relationship develops in which Grey contractually obliges the virginal Steele to be his submissive sexual puppet but finds himself actually falling for her.

Given the phenomenal success of the books, Universal and Focus Features are no doubt waiting to push forward with sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, provided moviegoers don't shout the safety word when Fifty Shades of Grey arrives in just over a month.

To hype the Valentine's release, Universal just unveiled a jumbo-sized TV spot, which you can peep right here:
