    So where is the Portishead version of SOS?

  2. Ben Ogley says:

    And the classical style version of S.O.S.

    The two best bits !!

  3. Jonathan Stones says:

    I was going to buy the soundtrack just for the Portishead cover.

    • Erin Coffin says:

      I was going to buy the soundtrack for that very same reason.

    I was also going to buy the soundtrack for the pop songs included (as opposed to the Clint Mansell score which worked well within the setting of the film but which I wouldn’t wish to pursue otherwise): the Portishead track, the one by The Fall, and several others that I will need to re-watch with pen & per in order to identify. Anyone got a tracklisting? A mistake not to have made the rest of the music available, in my opinion.

    I read an interesting article on a blog somewhere about this movie (sorry I looked and can’t find the link). Anyway, the article talked about how Portishead reunited for a song in the movie, but Portishead was not releasing the song at all, because they made the song to be in the film. So to hear the Portishead song you have to see the movie. I don’t know about the other songs in the movie.
