Greenberg – all of the music in the film

Greenberg

Greenberg

Greenberg is a great film about lost souls. The movie’s music has been carefully chosen by director Noah Baumbach. But the officially released soundtrack does not contain many of the tracks featured in the film.

Greta Gerwig singing Judee Sill’s “There’s A Rugged Road” is not on the soundtrack album, and neither is Serge Gainsbourg’s “Melody” (the song that plays during the party, when they’re gathered around the pool).

So here’s a list of all of the music in Greenberg… most tracks are worth a listen.

And remember; “It’s huge to finally embrace the life you never planned on”.

    Someone ought to find out the track listing of the “Mix-tape for Florence” that Ben Stiller makes for Greta Gerwig!

    I would love to hear the Drunks with guns song. I’ve been playing their old records for some time. Is there any place where i could find it?
