Ghost World

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - JT Griffith
In the era of soundtracks created more out of corporate synergy than artistic inspiration, the soundtrack to Ghost World is a wonderful treat. The music from the film based on the comic book by Daniel Clowes contains some great obscure blues and West Indian music transferred from vintage 78s as well as Indian film soundtrack music, new recordings of vintage jazz, and an original score by David Kitay, who also scored Clueless and Scary Movie.

In the era of soundtracks created more out of corporate synergy than artistic inspiration, the soundtrack to Ghost World is a wonderful treat. The music from the film based on the comic book by Daniel Clowes contains some great obscure blues and West Indian music transferred from vintage 78s as well as Indian film soundtrack music, new recordings of vintage jazz, and an original score by David Kitay, who also scored Clueless and Scary Movie.

Also of note is David Kitay's moody "Theme From Ghost World," which captures the bittersweet essence of the coming-of-age film perfectly. The songs chosen for Ghost World are obscure songs chosen clearly for their rarity and meaning, not commercial viability. The tenderness and appreciation with which each was selected can be heard in the subtle hisses and pops that remain from the original 78s. Ghost World is one of the most inspired and unique soundtracks in years.
Time Out New York - Mike Wolf
Everyone who's seen Ghost World already knows that owning this soundtrack is an absolute necessity. That's because both the film and soundtrack begin with Mohammed Rafi's madly addictive "Jaan Pehechaan Ho," taken from the Bollywood film Gumnaam.
