The Fault in Our Stars ... The Songs on the Soundtrack, the complete playlist

I hear you YA types out there are freaking out and breaking the internet with your love for The Fault in Our Stars again. This time it's because Grouplove, Charli XCX, Lykke Li, and Birdy all tweeted song titles of what are thought to be their contributions to the TFIOS soundtrack. It's a young diverse bunch in line with the filmmakers direct appeal to their target audience - teens - via the contemporary music. 

UPDATED 4/12/2014: The complete playlist was released today; the soundtrack will be available to pre-order on iTunes on 4/13/2014. 

1. Ed Sheeran – All Of The Stars
2. Jake Bugg – Simple As This
3. Grouplove – Let Me In
4. Birdy & Jaymes Young – Best Shot
5. Kodaline – All I Want
6. Tom Odell – Long Way Down
7. Charli XCX – Boom Clap
8. STRFKR – While I’m Alive
9. Indians – Oblivion
10. The Radio Dept. – Strange Things Will Happen
11. Afasi & Filthy – Bomfallarella
12. Ray LaMontagne – Without Words
13. Birdy – Not About Angels
14. Lykke Li – No One Ever Loved
15. M83 – Wait
16. Birdy – Tee Shirt *

Along with the release of the music selections the marketing for the film includes an online contest that enable fans to actually be 'in' a The Fault in Our Stars music video. IDOLATOR announced the news, slyly keeping mum about the name of the musical artist but I have a hunch it may be Ed Sheeran. Sheeran who became widely known to the world after appearing as a mentor on The Voice last season is without doubt an amazing and talented songwriter/ artist. I've added video of Sheeran singing "I See Fire" which he wrote for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug for oldies like me who may not have Sheeran in their personal collections. 
[I was wrong about this next bit, bummer!  :(]
There's also a chance that Nat Wolff and brother Alex, whose recording of I Won't Love You Any Less made it onto the soundtrack for director Josh Boone's Stuck In Love will be involved. I wouldn't be at all surprised; Wolff who plays Isaac, is a favorite of the director's, I've included some video of Nat and Alex and their gorgeous music below.

Here's IDOLTOR's announcement about the music video contest -
Just ahead of the sweeping love story’s release, one of the soundtrack artists (sorry, we can’t reveal who it is just yet!) will be filming a very special video in the next few weeks…and we want to give you a chance to be a part of the action. You want in?

A chance to be included in a very special music video for The Fault in Our Stars.
Post an Instagram telling us how The Fault in Our Stars has given you the courage to live, love, and make life awesome. Tag it #TFIOSEncouragements for a chance to be included in a very special music video for the movie.
Good luck, and make sure to check back here on Saturday for the soundtrack’s tracklisting!

Hypable shared the titles noting Birdy's contribution was cited as being No More Angels but fans seem to think it's actually Birdy's latest song, No Angels. I couldn't say but I've included it here. It's dark and plaintive, achingly beautiful, it sounds like it should be part of the score.
