… the new trailer for Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette/. It starts off with a lovely non-beat-oriented track from Aphex Twin’s underrated Drukqs album before cutting to an essential track by the Gang of Four, “Natural’s Not in It,” that announces the film’s themes in its brilliant lyrics: “The problems of leisure/What to do for pleasure… This heaven gives me migraine!” It then concludes in quite with “Ceremony,” the first single by New Order that was penned as a Joy Division track and which functions as a epitaph to Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, who committed suicide shortly after recording demo versions of the song.

For those who want to hear these songs and others in the movie, here’s a Last FM page that lists and links all the tracks, which include songs by Squarepusher, Bow Wow Wow, Adam and the Ants, The Strokes, The Cure, and Siouxsie and the Banshees.
