"After a couple of years of looking I found out that the song played when Mathilda and Leon are adjusting to living with each other is a Bjork cut of her first album Debut. The name of the song is "Venus as a boy". I figured since I was wondering who made that song and it wasnt on the soundtrack that maybe someone out there was in the same situation as me. Oh yeah, this movie and soundtrack is explosive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I feel so compelled to give homage after this epic listening

"Here i am at my computer, listening to the Leon soundtrack for the second time today and I dare say Leon is one of the best soundtracks I've ever had the plessure to listen to. Eric Serra gives it his all and it shows. The melodies found throughout are very deep and meaningful. Leon IS my favorite movie and as a fan it was truely great when this cd arrived at my house. The 23 tracks on the disc are strictly orchestational and you wont find the song by Bjork or the final song by Sting, I suggest downloading LimeWire if you wish for those. Otherwise every little piece heard in Leon is on this cd. Highlights of mine are, Ballad for Mathilda, When Leon does his Best, and Two Ways Out. Every song is great but those ring especially true for me. If you enjoyed Luc Besson's epic film, this soundtrack is for you. Buy it, dont even hesitate. Thanks for reading and I hope you found this helpful."
Serra does it again

"I bought the Soundtrack for the 5th Element a long time ago, and immediately became a big fan of Serra. Luc Besson (director) and Eric Serra make a perfect combination every time. I think my favorite track on The Professional's soundtrack is the quiet "Cute Name" simply because the first time I heard it I was listening to Paul Oakenfold's "Perfecto Flouro" mix (which as a side-note is the most amazing trance mix I have EVER heard); so naturally when I heard it in this movie I decided that this soundtrack was a must-buy. Although I must admit I was diasppointed that Sting's "Shape of my Heart" and the Bjork song from the movie did NOT appear on this CD as bonus tracks. Either way, I think Eric Serra is very talented, and his modern-classical mix of light Middle-Eastern sounds and catchy guitar riffs is unlike anything I've ever heard. He has a style all of his own that you can recognize in all of Luc Besson's films, and I would recommend this soundtrack and The 5th Element's soundtrack as well."
