Lost Highway...a David Lynch film...Original Soundtrack..featuring David Bowie


Say what you will about David Lynch's Lost Highway film, but the soundtrack is, bar none, amazing. With Lynch serving as executive producer, we get Mr. Trent Reznor producing one of the finest soundtracks ever put together. Not exactly rare, but certainly a "lost" gem. The music itself on the Lost Highway soundtrack is amazing and varied. David Lynch has always made excellent choices for his soundtracks, and this is no exception. The album starts and ends with different edits of David Bowie's 'I'm Deranged'. In between these two bookends, though, anything goes, from heavy/industrial rock (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein) to latin jazz (Antonio Carlos Jobim) to pop/rock (Smashing Pumpkins, Lou Reed). Of course there are also more 'soundtracky' pieces from Barry Adamson, Trent Reznor and Lynch's 'resident composer' Angelo Badalamenti.
