This is one of the most awesome pieces of movie soundtrack I have heard in a long time. And the scene belonging to this piece of music is one of the greatest shots in At World’s End. The music reminds me of Once upon a Time in the West. When I hear this song I want to see the film again, there is no way around it. It is after all a long wait until 2008.

This post is mainly for all the people who come here looking for information about the soundtrack from The Girl In The Cafe.
The bad news is, there isn’t any official soundtrack available. But the good news is that you can find the 2 songs that make up 90% of the soundtrack of this film.
2 songs from the soundtrack of the Girl of the Cafe that made an everlasting impression:
Sigur Ros – Starálfur (islandic for Staring Elf) from the album ágætis byrjun (”an alright start”). (Download Starálfur free and legal from Sigur Ros’ website : click here).
Damien Rice – Cold Water from his album O. You can watch a videoclip of a live version of this song here.
The song that’s playing as they walk down the corridor to the hotel room on their first night in Reykjavik is ‘Somewhere there’s an Island’ by Seaman Dan. You can hear a sample of it here.
The beautiful movie soundtrack is composed by Nicholas Hooper, who also will compose music for the upcoming Harry Potter movie : Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Nicholas Hooper has also composed music for other Nighy delights like State of Play and The Young Visiters.
Nicholas Hooper won a BAFTA Award in 2006 for Best Original Music for The Girl In The Cafe.
Hope this helps.
If you want to get the DVD, you can find it here on Amazon.
