Drive Complete Soundtrack


Drive : stars Ryan Gosling as an unnamed stuntman/getaway driver who gets mixed up with mob, leaving him with no choice but to speed around Los Angeles trying to save his life and that of the woman he loves (Carey Mulligan).


Obviously, no ride would be memorable without the perfect soundtrack and director Nicolas Winding Refn and composer/former Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Cliff Martinez created just that, choosing hypnotic, retro-sexy synth jams — most memorably the nu-disco theme “A Real Hero” by College featuring Electric Youth — and combining it with a chilling, vintage-sounding score. “Rock music didn’t suit the movie I was making,” says Refn. “I wanted to make a fairy tale, which is all about truth and purity, but the subtext is violence.”
