Soundtrack from Emir Kusturica's Arizona Dream by Goran Bregović featuring the vocals and lyrics of Iggy Pop on tracks 1, 4 & 6 and the lyrics of Emir Kusturica as well as the vocals of Iggy Pop on track 10. In the film, apart from the music on soundtrack, there are also three songs of Django Reinhardt.[1]

Song facts[edit]

The song "This is a film" quotes a character from the novel Chevengur by a Russian writer Andrei Platonov: "He would show Zakhar Pavlovich the eyes of a dead fish and say, 'Look-there's wisdom! A fish stands between life and death, so that he's dumb and expressionless. I mean even a calf thinks, but a fish, no. It already knows everything". Kusturica acknowledged this in one of his interviews[2]

The melody of the songs "This is a film" and "In the Deathcar" is a variation of Enrico Macias song "Solenzara".

The melody of "Gypsy Reggae" is a variation of the song "The Streets of Cairo" by James Thornton .
