About this album

The score to Ghost World is composed by orchestrator and arranger David Kitay. An excerpt of his work for the film is heard on the last track of the soundtrack album.

Music in the film includes the dance number, Jaan Pehechaan Ho by Mohammed Rafi and Devil Got My Woman by Skip James, as well as Pickin’ Cotton Blues by the bar band, Blueshammer.

There are songs by other artists mentioned in the film, including Lionel Belasco, which are reflective of the character Seymour, and of director Terry Zwigoff himself, who is a collector of 78 RPM records, as portrayed by Seymour. Other tracks are by Vince Giordano, a musician who specializes in meticulous recreations of songs from old 78 RPM records.

Referenced in the film is R. Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders, a band that Zwigoff played in. Enid asks Seymour about the band’s second album, Chasin’ Rainbows, and Seymour replies, “Nah, that one’s not so great.”

There is one track missing on the soundtrack, [track artist=The Buzzcocks]What Do I Get
by The Buzzcocks. It can be heard when Enid dresses up like a punk. Also missing is the song A Smile and a Ribbon by Patience and Prudence. In addition, the majority of David Kitay’s score is missing.

    interesting insight... i don't think i ever thought of it like that, but it makes complete sense!

    I think it's the theme of the movie. This hidden greatness smothered by some modern crap... so some of this needs inclusion ;)

    This is a great album with only 2 exceptions. Why did Zwigoff choose to include Graduation Rap and Pickin' Cotton Blues?? The later really ruins the mood for me...
