Every good teen movie needs a soundtrack of great tunes to go with it. For the upcoming "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower," it looks like the filmmakers have to put together one helluva mixtape that will make those who came of age in the '80s and '90s swoon, and perhaps turn some younger music fans on to some decent artists.

Every good teen movie needs a soundtrack of great tunes to go with it. For the upcoming "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower," it looks like the filmmakers have to put together one helluva mixtape that will make those who came of age in the '80s and '90s swoon, and perhaps turn some younger music fans on to some decent artists.

Spanning twelve tracks, the songs mostly fall into the heavily emotional side of things, with choice cuts from folks like The Smiths, The Innocence Mission, Cocteau Twins and Galaxie 500 (holy college radio flashback), but it isn't afraid to get on the dancefloor either, thanks to New Order and Dexys Midnight Runners. Looking for something with a bit more volume and edge? How about Sonic Youth's epic "Teenage Riot"? Just don't ask us to explain what Cracker's "Low" is doing here. Cap things off with David Bowie's classic "Heroes," and this one is good to go on your iPod.

Starring Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller, "Perks Of Being A Wallflower" opens on September 21st. The sounddtrack hits on September 18th. Full details below. [Huffington Post]
