“O Brother, Where Art Thou?” Track List with Lyrics


O Brother, Where Art Thou? album description:

"O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack penetrates the barriers of cinematic music, transforming to an artifact of cultural magnitude since its 2000 release. This music collection, curated for the Coen Brothers' cinematic masterpiece, is an exploration into the traditional music of the American South, consisting of richly textured bluegrass, country, gospel, and folk melodies. These harmonies don't only support the film's atmosphere during the Great Depression, but they have also faithfully rekindled these musical genres' value for modern-day listeners.

Renown selection in the album, "Man of Constant Sorrow," executed by the Soggy Bottom Boys (a made-up group in the film featuring vocals from Dan Tyminski of Union Station), envelops the film's Homeric narrative within its rugged lyrics and charm. Further notable performances were delivered by Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, and Ralph Stanley, whose chilling solo vocal performance of "O Death" reverberates chillingly, capturing the film's moodier, intense themes.

The album's creation spearheaded by T Bone Burnett, a connoisseur in crafting soundtracks entrenched in American musical history, is more than just background music for the film. Itizes plays a crucial structural role within the storytelling. Burnett's selected and produced tracks rekindled a fascination in traditional American music, unveiling a previously unheard era of sound to a contemporary audience with a modernized twist. The impressive achievement of the album—marked as eight times platinum in America—emphasizes its influence, extending far beyond being just a movie soundtrack, but instead a standalone musical phenomenon that breathed fresh life into forgotten melodies and stories.

Possessing a legacy much more profound than its commercial success or critical endorsement, the soundtrack succeeded in connecting generations, resurfaced hidden music to the forefront, and demonstrated the steadfast power of narrating through music. "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" stands as a tribute to its timeless music and the universal stories it unfold, mirroring the film's expedition through adversity, deliverance, and the chase for a mythical home, whilst creating a sonic painting of the American South that as vivid as it evokes emotion.
