An eclectic soundtrack, Juno opens with "All I Want Is You," by Barry Louis Polisar, renowned among youngsters for his silly ditties. The album also features Buddy Holly ("Dearest"), Cat Power ("Sea Of Love"), Mott The Hoople ("All The Young Dudes"), The Kinks ("A Well Respected Man"), Sonic Youth ("Superstar"), and a pair of songs by Belle & Sebastian ("Piazza, New York Catcher" and "Expectations").
The 20-song collection includes eight songs by Kimya Dawson -- a featured solo artist as well as member of the groups The Moldy Peaches and Antsy Pants. Two Dawson-penned instrumentals make their debut on the soundtrack, as well as "So Nice So Smart" from Dawson's 2004 Knock-Knock Who? and "Loose Lips" and "Tire Swing" from Dawson's Remember I Love You, which was released last year. The track "Anyone Else But You" was recorded in 2001 by Dawson and Adam Green as The Moldy Peaches. The film's young stars -- Ellen Page and Michael Cera -- appear on the soundtrack as well, performing their own version of "Anyone Else But You." Dawson's other group, Antsy Pants, contributes a pair of tracks to the album, "Vampire" and "Tree Hugger."
