Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Adaptation reunites Carter Burwell (of Coen brothers renown) with director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman, the creative team behind 1999's Being John Malkovich, with equally noteworthy results. Although selections like "The Unexpressed Expressed" lean heavily on romantic strings, Burwell's harmonic progressions rarely culminate in obvious resolutions, mirroring the frustration of the film's protagonist, a screenwriter struggling to translate a nonfiction work into a workable screenplay. Less predictable timbres propel other cuts--"The Evolution of Evolution" marries kalimba and steel drums to Duane Eddy-style twang guitar and sly bass licks--and, as with Malkovich, the music of Adaptation often feels as though it were emanating from the murky ocean depths or the mechanized bowels of Big Ben. The disc is book-ended by Fatboy Slim's mercifully low-key "Adaptation" remix (essentially the vibraphone and harp vignette "The Writer and the Crazy White Man" plus a drum loop), and the Turtles' 1967 hit "Happy Together," a somewhat incongruous conclusion to Burwell's dark, riveting score. --Kurt B. Reighley

Hey, like many of you I came to this page looking for the song that appears in both the trailer for "Adaptation" and the VW commercial. The song is E.L.O's "Mr. Blue Sky". I hope that can help some people out.

The song on the adaptation trailer, as well as the VW convertible commercial is not on this cd. U can find it on the album "out of the blue" by the electric light orchestra. The song is called "mr. blue sky" (for those with kazaa :D ) Hope i helped someone out there

This is the wrong forum for this, but what's the song used in the trailer? It's also used in a VW commercial. It's not on the soundtrack.

The song used in both the VW commercial "Bubble" and in the advertisement for Adaptation is called "Mr. Blue Sky" by Jeff Lynne. In other Adaptation previews, "Under Pressure" by David Bowie and Queen is featured. Anybody know the name of the song in the Saturn Ion commercial where the car almost leaves chilhood?

The score is great. Great movie too. The song I was really wishing would appear was a choral version of She Loves You by the Beatles. What name would an mp3 of that appear under?

I found the music quite hypnotic and I think even those who haven't seen the film will find the music beautiful and engaging.
