Product Description

Life Less Ordinary ~ A Life Less Ordinary

Amazon.com

While not as audacious as the Trainspotting soundtrack (which effectively introduced the general public to electronica), this disc quite au courant also has strong marquee value. Beck's "Deadweight" is loungy, nicely juiced and very cool. REM's low-key, quasi-ambient "Leave" is an intriguing detour for Stipe & Co. All this plus exceptional cuts by Folk Implosion, Luscious Jackson, Sneaker Pimps, The Cardigans, and the Cheez Whiz splendor of Elvis Presley's "Always on My Mind." --Jeff Bateman

An eclectic album, the film has a vast number of tunes and the album picks from across the board reflecting the film rather than aiming for any one musical genre. However this is it's failing, you can't play it when you're in a particular musical mood because some of the tracks will drive you nuts, if you wanted it because of the film, 'Leave' by REM is not the version from the film (but still good if you're into REM) and the omission of 'Round Are Way' by Oasis is criminal given that it's the track that the movie plays out on.
A good try but a miss in my opinion.

While this soundtrack comes with some great tracks, such as the title song by Ash, 'Velvet Divorce' from the Sneaker Pimps, 'War' from the Cardigans, 'Love is Here' from Luscious Jackson and 'Beyond the Sea' from Bobby Darin, a few tracks are not the same as they were in the movie. REM's 'Leave', for example, is much quieter as this mix omits the siren sound in the background (the version they played in the movie). It's nice, but if you wanted the movie version (like I did) be aware that it's a different mix and you might want to download the original. For some reason the very excellent 'Don't Leave' by Faithless is also a different mix; to hear the version played in the movie look for the 'Floating Mix'. Despite these changes, this is a great soundtrack nonetheless (I really do love 'Life Less Ordinary' by Ash, just a great punkish song that captures the feeling of the movie quite well).

I was pleased to see that most songs from the movie were included in the soundtrack, but the Oasis song, 'Around Are Way' that Ewan McGregor sang a few bars of in the movie was missing, and I would really have liked it if they had included the version of 'Beyond the Sea' that Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz sang together. That was one of my favourite scenes in the movie, and since Ewan has such a beautiful voice, I would have liked it if that version had made it onto the soundtrack.

I was truly disappointed when I purchased the CD and brought it home. My favorite song from the movie, Oasis' "Around Are Way" was not on the album! MAJOR MISTAKE. "Leave" also wasn't the same fast version as it was in the movie. HOWEVER, the rest of the tracks on the album totally make up for it, in my opinion. One of my personal favorites was "Velvet Divorce." (It's the song that Cameron Diaz's "Celine" swims to in the movie). I really recommend buying this soundtrack, especially just so you can play "Don't Leave" by Faithless over, and over, and over, and over. . .

If you want one of the most "alternative" soundtracks in recent memory, then you definitely want this one. There are several standout tracks on the album and you would be hard pressed to find any album fillers. Beck's "Deadweight" is a fuzzy lounge type of tune. The Sneaker Pimps' "Velvet Divorce" has a piano riff that is beautiful yet haunting when accompanied with Kerri Dayton's voice. Lou Barlow's project Folk Implosion is worthy of mention. Throw in some brilliant tracks by Underworld and Prodigy and loungy Elvis and Zippers and you've got a great soundtrack that deserves to standout from the plethora of 90's soundtracks.

i really love this film! its one of my favorites, and the album i have owned for the past 7 years. my favorite track by sneaker pimps "velvet divorce" is what got my attention. but i was dissappointed about that song not being on the soundtrack where Robert gets fired, then dumped and gets drunk and passes out in his bed...I really wish it was on there and if I knew who sang it or the name of it at least! If anyone out there knows, please email me to idontcarewherejustfar@gmail.com. thanks so much!
