Sofia Coppola's directorial debut has no shortage of music. She commissioned the French band Air to record an entire album's worth of material (sold separately) and enlisted the help of former Redd Kross drummer Brian Reitzell to pick other music to support the film. Aside from "Playground Love" and "Ce Matin La" by Air and "Everything You've Done Wrong" by Nova Scotia's fine Sloan (who add horns and backdate by three decades to the 1970s), the soundtrack resembles an anonymous day of 1970s AM radio. Al Green delivers a little bit o' soul with "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?", Todd Rundgren balances progressive rock with a strong power-pop backing ("Hello, It's Me" and "A Dream Goes On Forever") as do 10cc with "I'm Not in Love." Heart nail down the hard-rock end with two of their trademarks from the Dreamboat Annie album. Thankfully, Styx is programmed last, so you can skip the overwrought strains of "Come Sail Away" without difficulty. --Rob O'Connor

A beautiful soundtrack of a beautiful pazzling film.
CrimsonRain
I'm 14 and I've never really liked "oldies" music but after watching this movie I've fallen in love with all the songs on the soundtrack.

I am proud to say I am 14 years old and love this soundtrack filled with music from the 70's.

The use of the phrase "Music from the Motion Picture" gives this the feel of a soundtrack, but what it really amounts to is a 70's mix CD, and a darn good one. In addition to "Hello It's Me," one of Todd Rundgren's biggest hits, the CD also includes the rarely-collected ballad "Alone Again (Naturally)" by Gilbert O'Sullivan, the full-length version of "I'm Not In Love" by 10cc (not the edited mix that seems to be on every other 70's collection), and also the version of "Crazy On You" by Heart WITH the acoustic guitar intro. This CD also introduced me to Sloan ("Everything You've Done Wrong"), who sound right at home with a bunch of 70's hits but are actually a modern group. Also included are the two best 'soundtrack' pieces that Air recorded for the movie; "Ce Matin La" (which will sound familiar from the scene where Cecilia ghost-reads her diary) and "Playground Love," the recurring musical motif of the film. Great stuff to pop into the CD player while driving or working on the computer.

Few soundtracks have this affect on me, but "The Virgin Suicides" succeeds in more ways than one...TWO in fact (claps hand girlishly)
The instumental lives up to all the other tracks and I love walking around L.A. in the morning, getting lost in deep depression through wonderful music, particulary "Playground Love-Vibraphone Version" Depression in a good way I assure you. Most of all, a great selection of oldies included on this cd (shows how long I've been around) that put me in a great mood and inspire me to start writing. The Heart songs are great for the more heavy emotions that make you want to beat your head against a stranger's chest... and then there's the more mellow injured-heart songs like Al Green's, "How Do You Mend A Broken Heart?" and my favorite, "Alone Again (Naturally)"
Styx is a perfect end to a perfect cd...an anti-upbeat album all the way- and I love it for that. I prefer powerful music, that makes your soul weep with joy... and this one delivers the goods. If you haven't seen the movie- do yourself a favor. Adios!

A beautiful soundtrack of a beautiful pazzling film.
The Retro sounds by Heart, Todd Rundgren, Sloan and more get you back to the magical 70's,
and project the music onto thoughts of the five mysterious sisters in Virgin Suicides.
Air, which made the score also, makes retro-french sounds which gets you even more into a nostalgic mood.
Just sit back and dream of the times you once had, or wish u had.
For me it is a shaft of light in a stormy day.

The mark of a good soundtrack should be one that not only takes the listener back into the spirit of the film, but stands on its own as a coherently-assembled and respectable whole, rather than a marketing tag for the movie.
"The Virgin Suicides" soundtrack is all of this: evocative, haunting, and cohesive, this album not only recaptures the tonality of the movie, but echoes the time period without being blatant and predictable.
This is an unforgettable soundtrack to an unforgettable film.

If you have lived in the 70s...or rather lived the 70's, you must buy this soundtrack. Aside from being absolutely perfect for Copolla's haunting movie (which perfectly depicted the 70's in a nostalgic detail, along with a chilling theme based on teenage love and death), the music on this track really takes you back. I personally like the tracks by Heart...they remind me of my rebellious days...they don't make songs like this anymore.

People think that the youth of America doesn't appreciate old classic rock songs...but they are wrong. I am proud to say I am 14 years old and love this soundtrack filled with music from the 70's. I love every song on here...and it even got me interested further in these artists. This is the best soundtrack i have ever listened to and it is also a great movie..you should pick them both up..along with the book to!

there are not many soundtracks that live up to the movie. a few i can think of that do are rushmore, trainspotting, and velvet goldmine. these are also stellar picks that you should check out. that being said, this soundtrack was not at all a disappoinment. i had long ago bought the score by air (also very good, but more eerie and less easy listening than "moon safari"), and only recently bought this one. i was excited because it had my favorite canadians sloan on there, along with classics by heart, al green, and the hollies. they even threw in one of my favorite songs of all time- "come sail away" by styx. the addition of this was enough to keep me satisfied, but clearly not the only gem on the album. all of the songs pair perfectly with the mood of the film- melancholy and haunting. this is well worth any money you have to pay. make sure you also check out the movie- it is just as wonderful. one final note- al green's "how do you mend a broken heart" is one of the most beautiful, goosebumpy, and self-reflective songs i've ever heard. nuff said.

This is a very solid Soundtrack. I was looking for I'm not in love by 10CC. I'm not a huge 10CC fan, infact, that is the only song I like by them, so I wanted to find a Disc that had that track. I did a search for it and found this remarkable disc. As I read through the track listing, I got more pumped as I read on, great Disc. CD Quality is great, I have never heard these songs sound as great as they appear on here. If you want to own a great mixture of music, this soundtrack will not let you down.
My Top 5 tracks:
Hello it's me - Tood Rundgren
Come Sail away - Styx
I'm not in Love - 10cc
Magic Man - Heart
Alone again - Gilbert O'Sullivan
