Crazy/Beautiful

Original Soundtrack

Hollywood

Fitting with the movie’s racial issues, the soundtrack to the curious Crazy/Beautiful is equally as culturally divided. Featuring an even balance of Spanish and English hits , it’s a most rare and yet not totally bad soundtrack. Mellow Man Ace lends “Ten La Fe,” which is best described as Latin hip hop, Emilianna Torrini’s “To Be Free” is Dido-ish and haunting if you repeat it a few times. Including big names such as Seven Mary Three (whose well played “Wait” appears on this album), Fastball, The Getaway People, La Ley, and The Dandy Warhols, the soundtrack is good, but its reputation overshoots its substance a little, much like the movie.
