Pernah liat iklan mobil Toyota Yaris (sebut merek bole ni ? piz ah..) di tipi ? ato uda nonton 500 Days of Summer ? (kasian ya, kalo blum) yg cewenya cakep itu lo, but a little weird…ehm,, balik ke judul lg euy.

Yup, ada suara yg kita denger waktu iklan Yaris, yang sama dgn soundtrackny pilem ini. “Sweet Disposition” emang layak dijadikan Hits dari debut album mereka ini. Selain megah, dengar aja lirik yg beriring dgn ‘Drum Song’ yang memberi kesan romantic sekaligus glamour !.

The Temper Trap, inilah band asal Australia yang menjadikan Dougie Mandagi (vokalis) yang asli asal Manado, Indonesia, berhasil menyambagi 10 kota di UK dengan suara falset manadonya. Bahkan band yang beranggotakan: Dougie (indonesia) sebagai Vokalis, Lorenzo (Australia) di Gitar, Toby (Australia) di Drum dan Jonathon (Australia) di Bass berhasil mendapat kepercayaan untuk menjadikan lagu Sweet Disposition nya sebagai sountrack film Hollywood 500 DAYS OF SUMMER. Suara Dougi memang mirip-mirip dengan vokalis band Cold Play dan Saybia, tetapi gaya dari Dougie sangat mencirikan sekali orang asal ndonesia yang khas agak-agak norak. Tapi walaupun begitu dia satu-satunya atau orang pertama yang bernyanyi untuk soundtrack film hollywood.

Film 500 DAYS OF SUMMER sendiri (pengen saia masukin ke box office sih, tp ud agak lama ne pilem) bercerita tentang seorang lelaki bernama Tom yang bekerja sebagai penulis kartu ucapan di Los Angeles bertemu dengan sekretaris baru bosnya Summer Finn yang kemudian jatuh cinta. Namun sayang, Summer tidak percaya pada cinta sejati. Dan dari inilah kisah mereka dalam mengejar kisah cinta yang indah itu.
