Album Description

Soundtrack to new film based on the best selling memoir by susana Kaysen and starring Winona Ryder. 9 tracks chosen by the director to reflect the turbulent late 60's setting. Featuring such artists as Petula Clark, Them, Jefferson Airplane, Aretha Franklin and The Band - as well as a track from Wilco's 1999 album 'Summer Teeth', called 'How to Fight Lonliness'. 29 tracks in all. 1999 release. Standard jewel case.

Girl, Interrupted, the movie adaptation of Susanna Kaysen's memoir of being forced into a psychiatric institute, faces the challenge that all films set in the '60s must overcome: How do you create a memorable soundtrack that isn't filled with the same "greatest hits" that we hear on the radio (or any number of mediocre compilations)? Thankfully, Girl does have some eclectic moments: The Mama's & the Papa's "Got a Feelin'" isn't a tune we hear everyday, the reflective Jefferson Airplane song "Comin' Back to Me" fits the movie nicely, and Wilco's "How to Fight Loneliness"--though written 30 years after the film's events take place--is a welcome modern touch. Of course, we get overplayed classic rock, too--Merrilee Rush & the Turnabouts' "Angel of the Morning," the Band's "The Weight," and Them's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue." But for soundtrack buffs, the real treasures are at the end. Mychael Danna--best known for his ongoing collaboration with director Atom Egoyan--delivers 18 of his most-accessible-to-date (though still rather dark and ambient) score tracks. --Jason Verlinde

The "Girl, Interrupted" soundtrack is a really great new CD! Whether you're a fan of the (awesome)movie or haven't seen it yet, this is a really great audio cd. The tracks from the score of the movie are really good, as well as the other songs on it. Really good 60's-70's era songs, and most of them aren't the 60's-70's song on every other soundtrack of movie based on that time period. "Downtown" is especially great, as is "The Weight" (in my opinion). Also, Wilco makes a really great modern addition to this sountrack with the song "How to fight loneliness." All in all it's a really terrific CD (can I stress that enough?)! Buy it now!

I ran out the day that this came into stores and even paid full price for it.. Over all the CD is pretty good..The Merrilee Rush track "Angel of the Morning" was my motivation for buying this and is by far my favorite. I was rather disappointed to find that two songs that appear in the commercial are not on the sound track. The Boo Radley's "There She Goes" and one other song which can be clearly heard in the trailer and the ads are missing from this. Other then that, this is a great album.

I saw this movie at the Hollywood galaxy in Los Angeles. The music came on and immediately gave me the chills. This was a very well thought out movie and soundtrack. Every song fit incredibly snug as the movie progressed. Never was there a time when I found myself feeling awkward from hearing out of place music.

A trick to this CD though, if you don't know, if you listen to this in your car, the Mychael Danna selections from track 11 to track 29 turn the volume up VERY loud (if you can stand it) the depth of the sound due to the Glass Orchestra that was used has an orchestral effect like you've probably not heard or ever been used to. The glass orchestra uses glass instruments, pieces of glass, bottles etc to attain the effect that is heard. The guitar work is flawless. Wilco's 'How to fight Lonliness' is a great introduction to people not familiar with their music.

If you're looking for great music or something new like Wilco and Mychael Danna, then this is for you. If you also in the mood to hear Them and Van Morrison do a Bob Dylan cover than you're also in luck. It's actually the finest rendition of the song ever done.

... Yonder stands your orphan with his gun, crying like a fire in the sun ... look out baby! ... the saints are coming through ... it's all over now, baby blue.

Well worth the money paid.

I saw the magnificent movie and knew by the first five minutes I had to purchase the accompanying soundtrack. Not for the 60s-era songs, but for the haunting score. This is some original stuff! Earlier this year, I saw the movie The Ice Storm. The score for that movie was great. But no cd containing the score was released. Girl Interrupted's score and The Ice Storm's score sounded exactly the same, for they were both composed by Mychael Danna. How happy I was when I learned G.I.'s score was on cd! I particularly love the use of the "Glass Orchestra" (an orchestra that composes music with shards of glass, crystal goblets, glass flutes, and harmonicas.) Although this score takes multiple listenings to truly love, it is a must-buy. By the way, I'm only 13 years old and a great fan of movie scores!

Listening to this music brought me back to the feelings I had when I saw the movie, which by the way I loved. Throughout this CD there is a great bittersweet atmosphere, a melancholic feel that stays with you for a while. The songs are amazing, they can be enjoyed even by the not-so-big fans of the genre. The instrumental part is even better, soft, desperate, with a touch of instrumental sounds that resemble broken toys in the background. The CD very successfully portrays the atmosphere of the movie. It won't cheep you up, even though "How to fight loneliness" and "Downtown" are quite positive songs. However, your addiction to this good music will keep resurfacing over and over again. Buy it.

Girl, Interrupted is a great movie, and this soundtrack is a wonderful addition to my collection. The first half of the disk contains the popular songs that were used within the movie, and the second half -- the better half in my opinion -- contains instrumental music by Mychael Danna. Listening reminded me how powerful the music was to the picture, and how powerful the story was.

I am young, and when I saw Girl Interupted(which by the way is the best movie of all time) I had to see if the soundtrack was any good. Well it is. I loved all the tracks that went perfectly to the scenes. But the best two songs are Downtown with its catchy beat and End of the world.
