Adaptation reunites Carter Burwell (of Coen brothers renown) with director Spike Jonze and writer Charlie Kaufman, the creative team behind 1999's Being John Malkovich, with equally noteworthy results. Although selections like "The Unexpressed Expressed" lean heavily on romantic strings, Burwell's harmonic progressions rarely culminate in obvious resolutions, mirroring the frustration of the film's protagonist, a screenwriter struggling to translate a nonfiction work into a workable screenplay. Less predictable timbres propel other cuts--"The Evolution of Evolution" marries kalimba and steel drums to Duane Eddy-style twang guitar and sly bass licks--and, as with Malkovich, the music of Adaptation often feels as though it were emanating from the murky ocean depths or the mechanized bowels of Big Ben. The disc is book-ended by Fatboy Slim's mercifully low-key "Adaptation" remix (essentially the vibraphone and harp vignette "The Writer and the Crazy White Man" plus a drum loop), and the Turtles' 1967 hit "Happy Together," a somewhat incongruous conclusion to Burwell's dark, riveting score. --Kurt B. Reighley

As stated above, the music to the TV trailer is Mr. Blue Sky from The Electric Light Orchestra (or ELO). The song in the VW commercial is indeed Mr. Blue Sky, but it is a remake that is not ELO. I'm disapointed they used ELO music in the trailer and not in the movie. I WAS going to buy the soundtrack and see the movie for that reason. :[ I saw a new trailer for this movie today, and they again used an ELO song (can't remember which one now).

The song used in both the VW commercial "Bubble" and in the advertisement for Adaptation is called "Mr. Blue Sky" by Jeff Lynne. In other Adaptation previews, "Under Pressure" by David Bowie and Queen is featured. Anybody know the name of the song in the Saturn Ion commercial where the car almost leaves chilhood?

I loved most of this score except for one track #17 (The Screenwriter's Nightmare)(ZENO remix) it just sounds horrible but then it probably works very well in the movie!! Other then that I have no complaints about it!! So my acutual rating would be 4.5 for this soundtrack!!!! Go get it you will enjoy it!!!!!

Mr. Blue Sky by ELO (Jeff Lynn) off the album 'Out of the Blue' released in 1977. Search Kazaa and you'll have lots of options including a cool punk version by Nerf Herders.
It is NOT on the movie soundtrack (Adaptation), but the movie is very moving. I highly recommend it.
Hope this helps!

The song on the adaptation trailer, as well as the VW convertible commercial is not on this cd. U can find it on the album "out of the blue" by the electric light orchestra. The song is called "mr. blue sky" (for those with kazaa :D ) Hope i helped someone out there

I purchased the Adaptation soundtrack thinking the song from the trailer and the V.W. commercial would be on it. The soundtrack is nothing more than very horrible sounds, nothing from the trailer and very expensive. False advertising at it's best!
