Mark Hoppus And Pete Wentz Record Song For 'Alice In Wonderland'
0
As reported on Spin.com, the bassists for Blink 182 and Fall Out Boy have recorded a song for the upcoming Alice In Wonderland film. The movie which is directed by Tim Burton and set for a March release, will feature the unique collaboration by Mark Hoppus and Pete Wentz and is said it may not be their last creation. Wentz hinted that the duo may record a few more tracks for the movie's soundtrack if Hoppus isn't busy recording in the studio with the recently reunited Blink 182. As for the new track's sound, Wentz stated it's "nothing like Blink or Fall Out Boy". "Mark understands songwriting on a completely different level," he said in an email to MTV. "It's awesome to have a chance to sit in a room with him and watch him work out a melody." Although they have been busy with the collaboration, Wentz noted that him and Hoppus haven't formed a new project or supergroup. "It's just for fun," he said. "It's not a band or even a project at this state. I think between me getting Starbuck's on TMZ and him gearing up for a summer of Blink, we have a lot on our hands." A full tracklisting or release date hasn't been revealed for the Alice In Wonderland soundtrack but its said it should be anticipated for in the next few weeks.

    Pete has had some good basslines too. Dance Dance is catchy. Stuff from their first two albums is pretty nice too.

    These two should get a room. I dont listen to either of these bands but I read all the shit here at GW,it seems to me this Pete Wentz talks about Mark Hoppus in every interview he has ever done.

    Haha, Mark probably wrote the whole thing while Pete sat there combing his hair and putting blush on.

    Alan Rickman? Really? And Helena Bonham-Carter too is in it, I'm really looking forward to this film now. Not really too bothered about this song though.

    Mega fail. Panic At The Disco covered it, not Fall Out Boy. Good try though.

    I'm pretty anxious to hear the song. Mark's a great song writer, so i'm hoping wentz doesn't **** it up too much..

    This is terrible. I think that a psychadelic masterpiece should have psychadelic music. Throw white rabbit in and incense and pepperments. Then ill get some mushrooms and go see it.

    Mark Hoppus is quite an underrated musician actually, check out the stuff he did with his band +44. Much more musically worthful than Blink 182. Wentz however...idk aye.

    It's like Sweeney Todd 2 or something. I'm so stoked about it!

    i'm sure that the alice in wonderland soundtrack people are going to try and please the tiny itsy bitsy minority of viewers of the film that are UG members, all of whom have opinions, on what a 'real' song writer or 'real' bassist, that are no more important or correct than those of the people that will happen to enjoy the music on the soundtrack.

    Too bad that bass line was stolen from a Blink song. As long as Pete doesn't try to do too much this could be alright. +44 really showed Mark's songwriting abilities.

    Wentz just sumed it up for me by saying this "It's just for fun," he said. "It's not a band or even a project at this state. I think between me getting Starbuck's on TMZ and him gearing up for a summer of Blink, we have a lot on our hands."

    yea for a movie like this,it should b songwriterz who can write more dark-type songs,not poppy punk.But don't get me wrong i like Mark Hoppus,but for a soundtrack like this i'm not sure how it'll turn out.

    Since Mark Hoppus is part of the said collaboration, I'm going to give this issue the benefit of the doubt. But then again, it's Pete. :| Hope it turns out all right though. :]

    Loads of people are saying it'll be fine, but they forget it's a Tim Burton film >=[ They should just keep the songwriting to Danny Elfman. He kicks Wentz's and Mark's ass when it comes to swongwriting.

    I wonder if their combined efforts will provide an interesting bassline...

    Mark at least has some credibility in the emo scene because he's been a producer for a few fairly big bands

    Well, Mark is a great songwriter and singer and Wentz isn't a TERRIBLE writer, so this has a chance of sounding good.

    Music aside, they both have really annoying names. The worst part is "Wentz" though. loolollo omg I LIEK LUV PETE.. .WENTZZZZZzzZzZ lolz ...

    in fall out boys defense, their rendition of "what's this" for the nightmare before christmas soundtrack wasnt bad at all. and mark hoppus may not be considered by many as a competent musician but he knows how to make a melody.

    Hoppus did some good things with +44 if any of you checked out that record. It was a more mature sound and a little darker as well. A huge leap from Blink in particular. Anyway.. I don't know what this collab will be like, but I think Hoppus puts out good music more often than not.
