Editors’ Notes

If you enjoyed the soundtrack from 2007’s Juno, you’ll probably love the songs from 2009’s Up In the Air. Both films were directed by Jason Reitman, who has a predilection for making thoughtfully entertaining movies with quirkily developed characters and the kinds of top-shelf songs in the soundtracks that you’d expect to come from the collection of a MOJO magazine subscriber. Having Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings open with a retro reworking of Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land” sets a soulful tone. And lining up wistful musings by Dan Auerbach, Elliott Smith, Roy Buchanan and Sad Brad Smith perfectly punctuates the more melancholic moments. Crosby, Stills & Nash’s “Taken At All” may be decades old, but the pensive folk-rocker sits here like it was recorded just for the film, as does the 1971 demo of Graham Nash’s “Be Yourself” – easily the brightest gem on this collection of wintry songs. Charles Atlas’ instrumental “The Snow Before Us” is another standout with its simple melodic lines and pretty guitar arpeggios. Kevin Renick bookends the album with a stripped down title-track that sounds like he called Reitman and played it for his answering machine.

Customer Reviews

wonderful...

Saw the film back in September when it played at Telluride and was wonderfully entertained & touched. Jason Reitman has a way with telling stories and the same goes for his choices in music for his films. Great selection of songs, both well-known as well as the soon-to-be-known. Kevin Renick's "Up in the Air" and Sad Brad Smith's "Help Yourself", especially, are treasures. Worth the money and so is the movie. Seamless filmmaking and an unparalleled performance by George Clooney.

Get Elliott Smith without the whole album

The excellent Elliott Smith track "Angel in the Snow" is available on his album "New Moon" for 99 cents. You don't need to purchase the entire "Up In The Air" soundtrack to get that one song.

It's only so often...

... that you go to a movie, listen to the music, and want to get the album as soon as you leave the theater.

Great talent, very cohesive, smooth music right from the unique beginning with "This Land." Watch the move, but even if you don't get the music.
