I heard this really pretty song the
other day. Can I play it for you?
Music for the film was created by Grammy Award-winning band Arcade Fire, as
well as their frequent collaborator Owen Pallett.
"Arcade Fire started writing the music as we were shooting, so I'd sometimes
use it on set," Jonze says. "I'd send them stills and footage and they'd send us
an amazing mass of material in batches, maybe 50 tracks, which we would refine,
and then work on pieces we still needed, so the DNA of the music and the look
and feel of the film feels very organic. The music is really beautiful and is
very specific to the story."
Likewise, the tender and wistful "The Moon Song" was inspired by and written
for the story by singer/songwriter Karen O, with whom Jonze has often
collaborated, including on the score for his "Where the Wild Things Are," which
earned a 2010 Golden Globe Award nomination. Performed in the film by Joaquin
Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, it serves as an impromptu duet between Theodore
and Samantha on a trip to the mountains.
