The complete soundtrack to David Fincher's Gone Girl is now streaming at NPR Music, and it will haunt you to the core. Since last Friday, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have been teasing bits and pieces of the soundtrack, starting with “The Way He Looks At Me.” On Tuesday, Nine Inch Nails frontman Reznor and Ross released three more complete tracks, titled “Sugar Storm,” “Background Noise,” and “Just Like You”, hinting briefly at the chilling score that was to come. Billboard reports that the preview offered on the Nine Inch Nails website was overrun with so much web traffic it caused the site to crash. Now, the creepy hour-and-a-half long complete score is here, and be warned: it will have you thinking some dark, ominous thoughts.
According to Jocelyn Vena of Billboard, Gone Girl director David Fincher gave Reznor some very specific instructions for what he wanted in the soundtrack: "think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors. The way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. And then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel.” Seems appropriate for a twisted psychological thriller.
