Fiona Apple's music doesn't appeal to everyone, but her rendering of the Beatles classic "Across the Universe" is quite lovely, both vocally and production-wise. Apple also does a version of Percy Mayfield's "Please Send Me Someone to Love," which is similarly well-produced and flushed out with vibraphone and chamberlain. The rest of the soundtrack consists of a nonoffensive sampling of '50s hits and a few jazz standards. "Rave On" by Buddy Holly and the Crickets and "Teddy Bear (Let Me Be Your)" by Elvis Presley keep the show moving, while "Take Five" by the Dave Brubeck Quartet and "So What" by Miles Davis round the collection out. Randy Newman scored the film, and his "Suite from Pleasantville" is typically great. Here's hoping it's released in its expanded form on its own. --Aaron Tassano

"Great 50's hits like Rave On by Jerry Lee Lewis, Teddy Bear by Elvis, jazz standards like "At Last" by Etta James, and A KICKIN RENDITION of The Beatle's "Across The Universe" PLUS a song that wasn't in the film, the standard, "Send Me Someone To Love" by Fiona Apple! If you like a mix of music or love Fiona Apple this is a must own! The movie just ROCKS also, and the DVD version has the video to "Across The Universe" with Ms. Apple. Excellent! Happy Listening!"
What a great surprise!

"I bought this for Fiona Apple's "Across the Universe" and wound up loving every single song. This movie was great and its soundtrack was even better."
