The lovely, weary voice of Fiona Apple twines itself around the Beatles' "Across the Universe" like it was always meant to be there, providing the perfect opening to the soundtrack for the past-meets-present film PLEASANTVILLE. Featuring definers and breakers of style from Elvis Presley and Miles Davis to Buddy Holly and Etta James, this album reflects the beginning of a shift in 1950s sensibilities, as well as the coexisting worlds of the '50s and '90s in the film. Classic songs like Dave Brubeck's "Take Five," Gene Vincent's "Be-Bop-A-Lula" and Buddy Holly's "Rave On" make PLEASANTVILLE a distinctive and desirable compilation for fans of the era's music.
