Sofia Coppola's 2000 dark comedy The Virgin Suicides ended up being that rarest of beasts: a movie with two distinct soundtrack albums. There was the mixtape-style version, with tracks from Sloan, Heart, Al Green and Styx, as well as a full-length soundtrack from the French duo Air. The story goes that Air was disappointed to find that most of their music had been cut from the film, so they released it as its own album, also under the name The Virgin Suicides. This was between the release of their five-star debut, Moon Safari, and its style-jumping follow-up, 10,000 Hz Legend. The band has issued a deluxe repackaging of their version of the soundtrack, and one Air fan and AllMusic reader is going to have one arrive at their doorstep.
One AllMusic reader will receive the limited edition, super deluxe box set of Air's soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides. Contents include:
• The Virgin Suicides on 180-gram red vinyl
• An exclusive, previously-unreleased picture disc featuring live recordings
• The Playground Love EP on 180-gram red vinyl
• The two-disc deluxe edition of The Virgin Suicides on CD
• Two posters, a replica VIP laminate, and a download card of all the above music
