Juno Soundtrack Now Available Digitally

Ellen Page and Michael Cera star in Juno

A couple of nights ago, I watched the new indie film Juno and, after a rough start, really ended up liking it. The script is so funny and the acting strong all around (Ellen Page, Michael Cera, J.K. Simmons!, Jason Bateman, Allison Janney, even Jennifer Garner).

Music is a huge part of the film, as director Jason Reitman ( Thank You For Smoking ) uses familiar songs from the indie rock and singer-songwriter pantheon to set a tone that's kind of a cross between Rushmore , Ghost World , and Garden State . Ellen Page , who plays Juno, had a say in the music that was used. You can read her entertaining interview with Pitchfork here . The soundtrack became available yesterday on iTunes.


Here's the track list:

01 Barry Louis Polisar: "All I Want Is You"

02 Kimya Dawson: "Rollercoaster (Juno Film Version)"

03 The Kinks: "A Well Respected Man"

04 Buddy Holly: "Dearest"


05 Mateo Messina: "Up the Spout"

06 Kimya Dawson: "Tire Swing"

07 Belle & Sebastian: "Piazza, New York Catcher"

08 Kimya Dawson: "Loose Lips"

09 Sonic Youth: "Superstar"

10 Kimya Dawson: "Sleep (Instrumental)"

11 Belle & Sebastian: "Expectations"

12 Mott the Hoople: "All the Young Dudes"

13 Kimya Dawson: "So Nice So Smart"
