The Soundtrack for the movie was composed by by W.G. Snuffy Walden. Stephen King wanted ''blue jeans music'' for this movie, and I think Snuffy Walden succeeded! I really think that Snuffy Walden did a wonderful job at setting the music to the movie. Some has a folk/celtic touch, some with a blues twist, many songs combining his acoustic guitar with piano, stringed instruments, and other instruments. His music talks to you without words. You don't have to be watching the movie to feel the emotions of his music. My favorite part in the movie is when while ''One will Fall by the Way'' is playing. There is an interesting shot of Glen, Ralph, Larry and Stu walking with mountains in the background, and the shot pans over to a man who has died from the flu sitting on a tractor in the middle of a field. You really feel the vastness of the countryside here, as they go west with nothing but the clothes on their backs. ''Mid-Country by the Stream'' brings a feeling of tranquility and new beginnings-the acoustic guitar is great in this song. The song ''Ain't she beautiful'', gives a feeling of worry of things to come in an empty world, but also hope. ''Tom and Stu go home'' bring a feeling of vastness, loneliness, and hope of connecting with others. ''On the Road to Kansas'' has a great acoustic blues feel-the guitar shows great emotion, the guitar tells you what people are feeling here. I really recommend getting the soundtrack even if you aren't a big fan of ''The Stand'' as the music is wonderful. His piano is great in ''Tom and Stu go home'', and especially in ''Mother Greets the Multitudes'' where the piano is combined with violins/stringed instruments. ''The Stand'', with an orchestral arrangement, and ''The Trashman in Vegas'' with a rock feel to it, are both much different from the other songs, showing that Walden is great at bringing across a wide array of emotions and able to set the mood.
