While the film’s proper soundtrack contains music used in the film consistent with its 1970s time setting, this album is filled with contemporary songs that are inspired by the film, including one by the director’s daughter, Bu Cuarón. Music Inspired By The Film ROMA Q&A.
But this album-Music Inspired by the Film Roma-is not that soundtrack. The actual original motion picture soundtrack, featuring not just Leo Dan and Berlioz but also mambo giant Pérez Prado and the coastal sound of Acapulco Tropical, is a fine complement to the film-an interactive volume of CliffsNotes, perhaps, a chance to duck inside Roma’s hidden corners. Following Cuarón’s field-recorded introduction, Tepeji 21 (The Sounds of Roma), the album begins with a double dose of déjà vu. First Patti Smith reprises her 1996 song Wing ; then Beck and his father, the Canadian arranger and composer David Campbell, tackle Tarantula, a 1982 song by the 4AD band Colourbox.
