“Paprika” Original Soundtrack (「パプリカ」オリジナルサウンドトラック?, “Papurika” Orijinaru Saundotorakku) is the soundtrack to the 2006 film Paprika and was released on November 23, 2006 under the TESLAKITE label. It was composed by Susumu Hirasawa. A bonus movie was included with the CD.

The soundtrack is notable for being one of the first film scores to use Vocaloid (Lola as the "voicebank") for vocals.[1][2] It's also the last of Hirasawa's albums where an Amiga computer was used for composition. All MIDI was sequenced through an Amiga 4000 running the Bars n Pipes program.
