iTunes Review

In keeping with the plot’s 1961 British backdrop, the music here echoes the jazz-based tastes of protagonist Jenny, a studious teenager who adores all things French (hence the apt selections by Juliette Gréco and Madeleine Peyroux). Contemporary chanteuse Beth Rowley opens with the smoky “You’ve Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger,” a lovely song she co-wrote for the film that sounds so authentically antiquated it could/should have been nominated for Best Original Song. Vince Guaraldi Trio’s piano rendition of “Since I Fell For You” is a welcome instrumental, and the fact that they chose the live version of Ray Charles’ “Tell the Truth” proves that the architects of this soundtrack are smart people with good taste. Similarly, “Comin’ Home Baby” by Mel Tormé and “Teen Scene” by The Hunters truly exemplify what mainstream British kids were listening to in the early ‘60s. Of course no retro Brit-flick’s soundtrack would be complete without Duffy, whose “Smoke Without Fire” fits here like a perfectly tailored three-button suit from Savile Row.

Customer Reviews

This is a brilliant soundtrack

I just saw a midnight showing of AN EDUCATION and the entire time was thinking what a fantastic soundtrack it has and was hoping that it would be available for purchase. Much to my liking there is and it's not skimpy like most soundtracks that only include a handful of what was actually used in the movie. Definitely a great collection of music for a fantastic film, highly recommend!


What CowboyAndy said and a the whole soundtrack not just a few tracks (like Duffy's). The WHOLE thing is more than the sum of its fantastic parts. Worth every bit of $9.99.

Amazing and satisfying

I haven't seen the movie yet, but the music itself is amazing! I can already capture the essence of the film by listening to each track. It has some classic songs, some modern songs, some score pieces from the film, what more can you ask for? It's a great variety if you love jazz music. It's a brilliant soundtrack that leaves you feeling satisfied. Also it offers 20 songs for $9.99! It's a deal! Buy it!
