Wright’s films always feature compelling soundtracks, but Baby Driver takes it to a new level. With wheelman Baby’s ever-present iPod helping him manage his tinnitus, the song by the John Spencer Blues Explosion that inspired the movie, plus Simon & Garfunkel’s “Baby Driver” giving the movie it’s name (and end credits song), you’ve got to figure music is pretty key to this one.
What you don’t realize is that Wright and choreographer Ryan Heffington actually reverse-engineered the scenes, making the action match up with the songs that were featured while the scene was being shot. It’s a unique approach, and allows a seamless integration of music and picture.
But the Danger Mouse-produced double CD official soundtrack for Baby Driver (iTunes | Amazon | Spotify) only scratches the surface. Packed start to finish with music, the film runs just shy of 2 hours long, while the album is 100 minutes in length. Since only clips of those songs are used, that leaves a lot more songs to find.
Don’t get us wrong – those 30-odd tracks feature some of our favorite moments from the film. But they only tell part of the story. Here at Tunefind, we’ve worked directly with Sony to track down over 40 songs featured in trailers for Baby Driver and throughout the film.
Check out some of the fan favorite songs (so far) from Baby Driver.
