Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Director Terry Zwigoff's (Crumb), raw-edge tale of two teenage girls who are out of sync with the world around them, starring Thora Birch (American Beauty) and Scarlett Johannson (The Horse Whisperer). Based on the comic book by underground comix artist Dan Clowes. This soundtrack is a mixture of atmospheric blues and West Indian music transferred from vintage 78s, Indian film soundtrack music, new recordings of vintage jazz and original scoring by David Kitay (Clueless).

Amazon.com

As he did with Crumb, director Terry Zwigoff has created a soundtrack as eclectic and riveting as his movie subjects. The sounds of early jazz and blues play a crucial role in the events of Ghost World, and the music heard here is some of the best ever recorded. Skip James's classic "Devil Got My Woman" from 1931 may be the best-known work on this soundtrack, but it hardly steals the show. Three tracks from weird but riveting jazz-meets-calypso bandleader Lionel Belasco are included; the 70-year-old recordings are so original, they sound timeless. The same praise can be stated of film opener "Jaan Pehechaan Ho," a Bollywood rarity that has elements of surf music, funk, and garage rock. Of course, we also have to hear "Graduation Rap" and Blueshammer's "Pickin' Cotton Blues," two intentionally bad contemporary tracks that make the characters in the movie (and anyone listening to this soundtrack) feel out of place in today's pop culture. Zwigoff wisely fills out the disc with tracks from his personal 78 record collection, a mix of '20s and '30s string band and blues tunes that are seldom found in compilations (including great cuts by the Dallas String Band, Joe Calicott, and McGee Bros). The haunting "Theme from Ghost World," composed by David Kitay, finishes off this disc, perfectly capturing all the bittersweet moods found in the film. Recommended. --Jason Verlinde
