Best Music in a Movie: Lost in Translation

    By now you should all know how amazing and mesmerizing “Lost in Translation” is. Surely, you don’t need to read another review telling you it’s one of the must-see movies of the year. But one thing that is often overlooked in reviews is the music that accompanies Sofia Coppola’s hit film.

    Featuring works of great artists such as My Bloody Valentine, the Jesus and Mary Chain and Air, the movie simply would not be the same without this compilation of eclectic artists. Let’s face it, without the music, “Lost in Translation” would be a completely different movie. The tunes aren’t simply background music; they truly have a role in the movie. From Kevin Shield’s haunting tunes to the kitschy, campy J-pop tunes of Kaze Wo Atsumete, Coppola has arranged a collection of music that goes hand-in-hand beautifully with the movie, just as Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansson’s characters accompany each other through the streets of Tokyo.
