“Scott Pilgrim” soundtrack tunes revealed by Edgar Wright

By Sean O’Connell Remember when movies and their soundtracks were inseparable?

There once was a time when, if you loved a film, you grabbed the soundtrack because directors knew how to pair images with tunes. Now only Cameron Crowe continues the trend, handpicking the perfect tracks to match his action.

Well, Edgar Wright is stepping up to that table. His upcoming “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” seems to rely heavily on its musical selections, so this item will please and tease soundtrack fanatics. On his twitter feed, Wright revealed the songs that will be featured in the film. It’s heavy on Beck, Broken Social Scene and Metric, but there’s an occasional Rolling Stones or T-Rex track, as well as original material produced by Nigel Godrich.

1. Sex Bob-Omb (Beck): We Are Sex Bob-Omb
