James Wan Talks Skylar Grey | ScreenRant ::
“….Aquaman may set a new level of visual spectacle for the DCEU, but the selection of licensed songs and music used in the movie make it an exception among superhero blockbusters. And sure to send moviegoers in a race to add some of the songs to their favorite playlist.

It’s rare that a comic book movie will send people out of the theater wondering where they can listen to “Mera’s Song, the new Skylar Grey track, or even one of Roy Orbison’s songs re-imagined as a Disney-esque love ballad. Such songs are often found being used in movie trailers, but rarely do full, lyrical songs punctuate a comic story as loudly and clearly as Aquaman director James Wan has chosen to. And for those wanting to know what songs are used in the Aquaman movie, we’ve got you covered.

“EVERYTHING I NEED” BY SKYLAR GREY

The end credits for Wonder Woman treated movie audiences to an original song by Sia, titled “To Be Human, and for fans of current sensations, Aquaman doesn’t disappoint either. This time around audiences will be able to hear Skylar Grey’s “Everything I Need, but the song is sprinkled through the movie long before – even if the viewers have never heard it enough to notice. James Wan explains:

“Skylar Grey wrote the ending and the love song theme that we use throughout the movie. Skylar wrote that beautiful song, and then we use that and pepper it throughout the whole film as like the love theme for Mera and Arthur throughout the film. Kind of like what [James] Cameron did with Titanic, right? You know, you have Celine Dion singing the song, but then you hear that theme played throughout the whole film.”….”
