Strange... Cartoon-sounding... Eerie... Beautiful...
Those are the words that come to mind when I listen to the score to one of my new favorite films, "Punch-Drunk Love." Composed by Jon Brion, this beautifully haunting score gets in your head and stays there (just like the movie). You pretty much feel a party of emotions when you pop this baby in.
While it can be very melodic and soothing at times, it can also get tense and rapid. A lot of the tunes on the score appear to be influenced by the song "he needs me," which was originally from the "Popeye" movie and was performed by Shelly Duvall. (The original song appears on the soundtrack as well). And you really get the feeling that you're watching some sort of cartoon when you play the CD. How strange I'd like something like this, but that's thanks to loving the movie so much.
My favorite tracks are "overture," "tabla," "punch-drunk melody," "he needs me," "hands & feet," "blossoms & blood," "here we go," "le petit chateau," hospital," and "third floor hallway." That's the majority of the album, but those are the songs I listen to the most. I really love Jon Brion's "here we go;" the lyrics really seem to hit home with me. All 17 tracks are a complete joy to listen to.
If you're a big fan of the film and you love a good film score, put "Punch-Drunk Love" on your list. This is a score that I can never get tired of. I'm glad that I have it in my CD collection and it is a frequent visitor in my stereo, I must admit.

This is another great collaboration between director Paul Thomas Anderson and musician Jon Brion. First, this is a great movie, and then an equally great soundtrack/score by Jon Brion, with the film and soundtrack working perfectly together. The disc is mostly instrumental songs, but also includes the songs "He Needs Me" "Waikiki" & "Danny (Lonely Boy Blue)" which are prominent in the film. This score is great on its own, which makes me recommend it more than the "Magnolia" score (again by the PT/Brion duo). These two are really able to team up and make the music perfectly complement the film.
Also, if you like this soundtrack, especially "Here We Go", go find Jon Brion's album "meaningless"

I was a huge fan of the movie, and particularly the music in it. The problem with this disc is that they break up the beautiful and unique score with less beautiful and less unique songs. Look at the track listing and you'll see several examples, including Hawaiian music, a rock song, and a vocal by Jon Brion, who's better served by pure instrumentation.
Rather than getting the soundtrack, I would recommend getting the movie and enjoying the score in its true context.

captures the essence of the film perfectly...you get the Shelley Duvall song and Waikiki and much more.
It comes enhanced with film footage playing Jon Brion's Here We Go. This song is as much important to this film as Aimee Mann's Save Me was for Magnolia.
Unfortunately, I didn't hear it in the film. But I really love this cd.
