The movie Stay has a very dream-like quality, and the soundtrack does a masterful job underscoring it. Most of the songs are very laid back, awash with pad sounds with subtly effected solo instruments, like guitar, piano or cello. The overall production value of sound design is very high. The pad sounds in particular are really nifty, sounding like strings or choirs, yet not exactly, but at the same time, not sounding synthy or electronic either. While some of the sounds are obviously electronic, you never feel like you're listening to an electronic music. The 16-member (!!!) music team Asche & Spencer did a great job keeping the sound very organic. Also, whole CD has a subtle reverb-y resonant quality that makes you feel like you are standing at the end of a long tunnel, which fits the movie perfectly well.
And when it all comes together in the end credit music "I'm never gonna sleep tonight," it's truly beautiful. Piano, guitar, cello, strings, organ, and then choir.... Great buildup.
The motif is rather simple, but with masterful arrangement and sound design, this works to its advantage in creating a very atmospheric, very evocative, very hauntingly nocturnal soundtrack.
I'll be listening to this one a lot. Especially when I'm driving at night.
the name os this song is These Eyes, written by Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman. The one we hear three or four times during the movie is performed by The Guess Who.
Other nice songs from this soundtrack are:
- Angel from Massive Attack
- Cold Water from Damien Rice
- Aleph 2 from Photek
- Something's Got To Change from Holly Marilyn
- Who Am I from Peace Orchestra
Hope to helped you.
For those wondering: the song that plays during the strip-club scene is called "Angel" from the album "Mezzanine" by Massive Attack. I highly recomend this one as well.
This is the cinematic soundtrack, not a compilation of the songs that were played in the movie that artists such as Massive Attack had already produced (the song Angel by Massive Attack is played in the movie). This is the background music played during the movie that sets the stage for the various scenes.
If you cared for the movie, this is a must have. Love love love, it.
