Perfect Music for the Movie

If you haven't seen Raising Arizona, take a look. It's a splendid crime comedy with strong performances by everybody, not just stars Nic Cage and Holly Hunter. The music of Carter Burwell takes the movie up a notch, the way John Barry's music for James Bond movies and for Body Heat elevated the movie. That said, I'm not going to buy the entire album just to get Dream of the Future. I don't believe it's the composer, it's probably whover owns the album. They don't get it about iTunes yet. I want to buy what I want to buy, not 17 songs just to get the 1 song I want. Anyway, it's great music. Carter also did great work for Hudsucker Proxy, with Paul Newman and Tim Robbins, another multi-star Coen Brothers movie.

Where's the one I want?

I used to have this CD but this isn't the CD I used to have. Where's the yodeling?


I really just wanted the soundtrack to Blood Simple. The simple piano melodies are very haunting. I really didn't need the Raising Arizona tracks. The "ALBUM ONLY" stuff is a drag.

Probably one of a very few soundtrack composers to idolize Iggy Pop, Carter Burwell is best known for his work with the Coen Brothers, having scored every one of their films through the year 2010. By turns haunting and dark or quirky and experimental, Burwell's eclectic music has graced films in a wide variety of genres, and he's used the occasional big-studio project to finance his work on a number of groundbreaking independent films. Born November 18, 1955 in New York, Burwell took piano lessons...
