IMDB has the soundtrack listing for Sophia Coppola’s Marie-Antoinette. She really *is* mixing her chocolate and peanut butter.

Gang of Four: “Natural’s Not In It”
Dustin O’Halloran: “Opus 17”
Windsor for the Derby: “The Melody Of A Fallen Tree”
The Radio Dept: “I Don’t Like it Like This”
Aphex Twin: “Jynweythek Ylow”
“1st Menuet Pour Les Guirries et les Amazones, 2nd Menuet”
The Radio Dept: “Pulling Our Weight”
Air: “Il Secondo Giorno Instrumental”
The Radio Dept: “Keen On Boys”
“Aux Languets D’Appollon” (From the Opera “Platee”)
Bow Wow Wow: “I Want Candy (Kevin Shields Remix)”
Siouxsie and the Banshees: “Hong Kong Garden”
Bow Wow Wow: “Aphrodisiac”
Bow Wow Wow: “Fools Rush In (Kevin Shields Remix)”
The Cure: “Plainsong”
New Order: “Ceremony”
Squarepusher: “Tommib Help Buss”
Phoenix: “Ou Boivent Les Loups”
Adam Ant: “Kings of the Wild Frontier”
Aphex Twin: “Avril 14th”
The Strokes: “What Ever Happened?”
“Tristes Apprets, Pales Flambeaux” (From the Opera “Castor & Pollux”)

Heavy on the Bow Wow Wow and The Radio Dept. (Here’s a playlist on LastFM.) Despite the naysayers, I remain in full support of this once and future experiment. Sofia talks here about how she used history as a loose backdrop, and basically, created her own personal fantasy rock opera. This isn’t about historical accuracy. This is one woman’s decadent dream!
