Original Soundtrack

Milan

In one word, this soundtrack is eclectic. Kicking off with George Jones singing “The Grand Tour,” Patsy Cline crooning “Sweet Dreams” and Bobby Herb doing “Sunny,” you think it’s going to be a bunch of older artists. However, from there we hear various score elements written by Stuart Matthewman, and a slew of very interesting artists such as Cat Power (who does an amazing Mazzy Star-like “Naked if I Want to Be”), “Mr. Karaoke” (score with Aya), “Tell Her” (Chocolate Genius and score) and Granddaddy’s “He’s Simple.” All the above tracks are amazing and everything that isn’t listed is score so basically, this is a great soundtrack packed full of colorful and contrasting songs and artists.
