SOUNDTRACK: The Virgin Suicides.

April 24, 2009 Leave a comment

When thinking of a tragic movie seeped in melancholy, one doesn’t generally turn to electronic music. But that’s exactly what happened in the case of the movie The Virgin Suicides. Entirely composed byFrench duo Air, the score has a decidedly eclectic feel — fitting, considering that a large part of the movie is its time period of the seventies.

The Virgin Suicides

The cover says it all, doesn’t it? The music brings out the orange in a story that could have easily faded into darker hues. A tale about four sisters who all ultimately kill themselves, it asks both why people do these things and whether society at large compels them to do it. And yes, while electronic music may not have been your first choice, after listening? You’ll wonder why the heck not.
