It's funny, I recently bought an IPod and the first thing that went into it was the LIT soundtrack. Whenever I put it on in the car, my wife falls asleep--she finds the music relaxing.....for me when I hear it, I become awake and yes...I still get that "feeling" every single time I hear it. :)

Wow... seems we're all of one mind lol..

Squarepusher definitely hit the mark with "Tommib". And the Jesus and Mary Chain song at the end gives me that "feeling" as well. Hell, the whole Soundtrack, even "Too Young" gives me that "feeling" cuz I'm there, seeing them dance around and smoking weed in that apartment.. lol :roll:

Have you tried listening to anything else from Squarepusher? Man, that stuff is hard to listen too. It's mostly frantic electronic music.

I have never heard anything else by Squarepusher.

Am I the only one who assumed that almost every track from the soundtrack (upon viewing the film) was done by the same group or person? I was quite shocked to find that there were a great many different groups and persons who made different songs on the soundtrack. As they all have the same kind of ethereal, blurry "Tokyo" sound to them. Kudos to Sofia on that part for finding all these different tracks with the same qualities and feel to them.

The soundtrack was selected with great intuitiveness to fit all together perfectly for the movie.

I think you may have been the only one though! :lol:

That ride home in the taxi cab was magical. The lights of Tokyo, the new soulful connection made at Karaoke, the whole ambience was just so moving. The haunting echo of that song as Bob carries Charlotte to her room is just brilliant.

heee.

Just a bit of randomness here, but I was shocked and appalled one night the other week when I was playing the LiT soundtrack whilst I had some friends over and one of them called it "depressing" !

My wife says the whole movie is depressing. I guess I can understand that point of view, because it is slow-moving and its messages are somewhat subtle and complex. But all-in-all I reckon it's uplifting.
You want more mysterious? I'll just try and think, "Where the hell's the whiskey?"

It's interesting to see how the movie and soundtrack effects different people. I don't think any of us would consider it depressing. It's sad and lonely in parts, but overall, it's very uplifting.

I think the best one word description I've heard so far is: sublime.

It's sort of triumphant to me. It's like the two of them cleared a hurdle.

The soundtrack to me feels very dreamlike. It almosts reminds me of childlike sometimes, as though to show the characters childlike innocence to the whole Tokyo lifestyle. It really feels this way at the very beginning when Bob is looking out the car window at the neon signs. It really gives off this "... wooww" feeling of awe.

I think I must of seen it about 15 times now I love it.
I try and watch it a couple of times a year, last time I watched it after finishing it I went back to the beginning and just started watching it again.
