Overview

The soundtrack to The Big Lebowski, the Coen brothers' follow-up to their breakthrough film Fargo, is an odd mixture of opera, world music, pop, jazz, exotica, folk and blues. In other words, it's as idiosyncratic as the Coens themselves, and the weird array of styles makes sense in practice, not on paper. Among the highlights are Elvis Costello's "My Mood Swings," Bob Dylan's "The Man in Me," Nina Simone's "I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good," Yma Sumac's "Ataypura," Kenny Rogers' "Just Dropped In," Townes Van Zandt's "Dead Flowers" and Henry Mancini's "Lujon." The collection makes more sense if you've seen the film, but there are enough good songs and quirky humor to make it an enjoyable listen on its own terms.

What happened to Viva Las Vegas, last song on the tape, best rendition I've ever heard of that song, it's missing. Tumbling Tumbleweeds should be the theme song,......missing ! Eagles were left out also. Guess I'll have to wear out my VCR playing THE only genuine sound track !

I just watched the DVD theater release of the Big Lewboski. Really enjoyed the soundtrack and thought it might be worth buying. However ,I am very disappointed that there is no Creedence. I can understand why there is no Eagles , after all , The Dude hates the fu**ing Eagles.

Never before has a soundtrack portrayed the theme of a movie as good as this. If you like the Dude and his chilled-out personality, this CD is a must. Every song is just as good as the others. So buy it, listen to the music that the dude prefers, and hopefully you too will become a mellowed-out dude that loves to sit back, relax, get faded, and invite your lady-friend over for a good time. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
