'Only God Forgives' Soundtrack Details and Full Track List From Cliff Martinez

Not only was Cliff Martinez's score for Drive beautiful and Brian Eno-esque, but it elevated the story to another dimension. It enhanced the way in which Nicolas Winding Refn's cinematic use of physical space and the silence between its characters could be filled with emotion.
It wasn't manipulative, but a guiding force that strapped us into Drive's hero story and spoke for the moments its silent and stoic figures could not. Yet it also made moments tingle, casting a glow on the darkness, and giving the violence the potency it needed to transcend mere aggression.

And after such a collaboration, it makes perfect sense that Martinez has taken on the task of scoring Refn's latest film, Only God Forgives. The Ryan Gosling-led Thai boxing thriller is slated to premiere at Cannes this month and just in time, Film Music Reporter has the full track listing for the film. Set to be released by Milan records, the soundtrack is almost entirely Martinez—save his collaborator Gregory Tripi. And unless there's anything missing from this list, it doesn't appear there will be a future sensation a la "A Real Hero" or "Under Your Spell" to come out of this soundtrack. Remember the first time you saw Drive and "Nightcall" started playing? Even if you loved the song before, it never sounded so perfect.

Alas, check out the track listing below and let's just keep listening to the PROUD's "You Are My Dream" from the trailer—a song that at first glance sounds uplifting and sweet, but has the after taste of something evil.

mammary_glands 6th-May-2013 09:31 pm (UTC)

mistress_f 6th-May-2013 09:30 pm (UTC)
lmao i interviewed him last year and he told me nicolas' movies are too violent for him and he can't watch them (never finished watching bronson)
he wasnt even sure how his song ended up on the film either it was so cute
wheresandrae 6th-May-2013 09:55 pm (UTC)
thats because Kavinsky only has one stellar song and they already used it
fierysadness 6th-May-2013 09:30 pm (UTC)
A lot of Cliff's work sounds really similar. I was watching The Company You Keep the other day and I recognized one of his compositions in there and I was like this has to be Cliff and it was him. Will forever love him for "Scary Monsters on Strings" though
lestat 6th-May-2013 09:33 pm (UTC)
i have a deep anger for the social network score because it was basically a retool of nine inch nail's ghost ep

I LOVED the score for Spring Breakers. I felt like it really fit the whole vibe of the movie. This piece in particular is superb.
invisible_cunt 6th-May-2013 10:11 pm (UTC)
i saw skrillex and thought it was going to be some sort of intolerable ear assault

mistress_f 6th-May-2013 09:31 pm (UTC)
i was hoping for more non-original songs tbh. nicolas' taste for cheesy 80s (or 80s sounding) music is always ON POINT
anyway i really love cliff martinez so im looking forward to the full score

I can't get past the firs four songs. under your spell is too much flawlessness for me to handle
prophecypro 6th-May-2013 09:37 pm (UTC)
Sounds good
shinagara 6th-May-2013 09:38 pm (UTC)
Cliff Martinez is a real human being and a real hero
wheresandrae 6th-May-2013 09:55 pm (UTC)
girl that song wasn't even him
shinagara 6th-May-2013 09:57 pm (UTC)
I know! I just tried a creative way of saying I like his work :(
fierysadness 6th-May-2013 09:48 pm (UTC)
I just realized I've been hearing a lot about this film but IDK what it's even about
laurie_springs 6th-May-2013 10:05 pm (UTC)
lmao literally Drive all over again then
lovelyeli 6th-May-2013 10:39 pm (UTC)
it's not tho..the plot is different

the only reason ppl say it's the same thing is because ryan is again this ~quiet monster~ type character..
invisible_cunt 6th-May-2013 09:54 pm (UTC)
the drive soundtrack was perfection
so i'm looking forward to this one
wheresandrae 6th-May-2013 09:58 pm (UTC)
Cliff definitely has his style he sticks to, but from what I've seen that he's scored it fits the films really well. Drive and Spring Breakers especially. I ain't even mad that Angelo Badalamenti didn't score Drive in the end because his shit was on point.

Thailand is perfect I'm glad this movie is embracing the fact tbh. Give us some Thai poppy sounds like King Apichatpong Weerasethakul uses in his movies AMEN
amkf 6th-May-2013 10:01 pm (UTC)
I think the score for Contagion was really good as well.
sanditar 6th-May-2013 10:02 pm (UTC)
I'm looking forward to this movie.
The Great Gatsby OST is giving me life rn, I love almost every song and although No Church in the Wild was one of my most played last year I don't like it in this. Link if you don't have it already, it's the deluxe edition.
veiledstar 6th-May-2013 10:08 pm (UTC)
came in here to say this.
eldorados 7th-May-2013 02:47 am (UTC)
thanks for the link!
laurie_springs 6th-May-2013 10:04 pm (UTC)
Hope this isn't going to be like the Drive soundtrack where everyone creams over it and I'm just like, "????????" while listening to it time upon time upon time.
the_sandra 6th-May-2013 10:04 pm (UTC)
Just came here to say how much I love the "Drive" soundtrack. It's fucking flawless.
lovelyeli 6th-May-2013 10:41 pm (UTC)
i love anything cliff does..also the trailer song is EVERYTHING to me rn
_sugar 6th-May-2013 11:13 pm (UTC)
ugh the beginning of this song gives me chillsssss
kateison 7th-May-2013 12:23 am (UTC)
this is amazing
whatdeepvoice 6th-May-2013 11:07 pm (UTC)
i'm listening to the stoker sdtk rn. it is very sinister/elegant sounding, i like it.
mayjailer 7th-May-2013 12:39 am (UTC)
