Soundtrack: Lost Highway (1997)

With David Lynch serving as executive producer, we get one of the finest soundtracks ever put together. The soundtrack opens with David Bowie performing "I'm Deranged" (which the film's credits opened up to), and while it may sound a little techno (compliments to Brian Eno), it is still Bowie, and this song helps to forever cement him as the king of cool. Nine inch nails's "Perfect Drug" fits the tone of the film like a glove, just try to resist the urge to sing along with the catchy chorus. The Smashing Pumpkins' mournful-esque "Eye", which may be one of they're best songs. Lou Reed's rendition of "This Magic Moment" is a tad disturbing, while Marilyn Manson contributes "Apple of Sodom" and an excellent rendition of Screaming Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell On You", and we also get a few selections of barry adamson's grooves, all of which are sandwiched between orchestral compositions from Angelo Badalamenti. A must have for the fans of the film.
