Drive - Soundtrack (2011)


‘I got it!’ I know what ‘Drive’ is! 
It’s going to be about a man who drives around at night listening to pop music, because that’s his emotional relief.’

Refn's major breakthrough realizing what the movie was all about


As I said in the previous post, one of the biggest highlights of Drive (2011) is the soundtrack! 

Composed by Red Hot Chilli Peppers ex-drummer Cliff Martinez, most of the "score" is made of appealing techno beats and retro synthpop melodies that instantly take us back to the 80's in which the genre was popular! It suits the film's style and needs, by incrementing a bigger strenght to some of the most powerful scenes.

One of the tracks that even goes beyond the electronic music is Oh My Love, sang by Riz Ortolani featuring Katyna Ranieri. That song made the difference in the dinner scene near the end, adding a dramatic component that just blown my away! That's what the right music does! That's the beauty of it...
Serving as a crucial element on evoquing certain emotions from the viewers... And as far as the Drive's soundtrack is concern, it's just one of the best that I've seen in recent years. Every tracks works it's way up, giving more purpose to the whole concept of this Nicolas Winding Refn picture!
