Music is inextricably linked to Sofia Coppola's career. Her first film, the short Bed, Bath and Beyond was written by Ione Skye, the actress who was once married to Beastie Boys' Adam Horovitz and is now married to rocker Ben Lee. Her second short, Like the Star, kicked off with The Amps' Tipp City. Once she jumped into feature work, her films were littered with memorable soundtracks intermingling the old, the popular, the rare, and the new.

The Virgin Suicides mixed Sloan and Todd Rundgren with Heart and Styx. Lost In Translation opted for a mix of hard-hitting crassness like Peaches' "F**k the Pain Away" with the gentle whisper of Air's "Alone in Kyoto." Even when Marie Antoinette detailed a whole different world, the sountrack boasted Aphex Twin, Bow Wow Wow, and The Cure.

Now she's back with Somewhere, and the soundtrack is sure to please once again.
