Garden State soundtrack

Illustration of the Month for August 2005

Music from the Motion Picture Garden State

After seeing the movie, I checked out the soundtrack on iTunes. It seemed a better deal to just buy the whole thing rather than the songs I really wanted. I don't regret not having the actual jewel case to go with my soundtrack, cause the image they chose for the cover (while yes, a very important scene), lacks the feel of the music. So I decided to make my own.

(Click on the image to see the full size version.)

The design is inspired by this poster for the film:

01 Don't Panic by Coldplay
02 Caring is Creepy by The Shins
03 In the Waiting Line by Zero 7
04 New Slang by The Shins
05 I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You by Colin Hay
06 Blue Eyes by Cary Brothers
07 Fair by Remy Zero
08 Love WIll Come Through by Travis*
09 Lebanese Blonde by Thievery Corporation
10 The Only Living Boy in New York by Simon & Garfunkel
11 Such Great Heights by Iron & Wine
12 Let Go by Frou Frou
13 Winding Road by Bonnie Somerville
14 The Reason Why by Rachel Yamagata*

*These songs are not on the Official Soundtrack, but were pimped on Zach Braff's Garden State blog. Maybe they were feaured in a promo spot or something.
