Title - 'Silver Linings Playbook' (Sony Classical)
Artist - Danny Elfman

The less-than-20-minutes score for 'Silver Linings Playbook' is by the stupidly-talented Danny Elfman, whose fourth score of six in 2012 (along with Dark Shadows, Men In Black 3, Frankenweenie, Hitchcock and Promised Land) is a contemporary comedy-drama.

And so, as lightweight as the film truly is; aside from the mental instabilities of the main two characters, of course, the film really didn't require an elaborate score from a full orchestra. So, instead Elfman has created a light, tuneful orchestral-rock score, to be quite frank.

The first track, 'Silver Lining Titles' fairly bounces along, before the progressively getting-quieter 'Running Off,' the piano-quietness and gentle harmonizing of 'Simple,' and then the more upbeat piano of 'With A Beat.'

Up next is 'Tiny Guitars,' which just gets going as it ends, and is backed by 'Walking Home' and then 'Silver Lining Wild-Track.' Next is the shortest cut on the soundtrack, 'The Book.' Coming in at just 41 seconds, it's a pleasant harmonized ditty, for sure. The album then closes with 'Happy Ending' and then finally 'Goof Track' - which with its upbeat piano and harmonizing is quite possibly my favorite track.
