All The Songs In Todd Haynes' 'Carol' Including Billie Holiday, Gerry Mulligan, The Clovers, Jo Stafford, & More

Todd Haynes‘ highly anticipated “Carol” hits the Cannes Film Festival very, very soon, and for most us, we can’t be there. Our team will deliver a review, but for everyone else, we’ll have to take whatever we can until the movie gets released (hopefully) later this year. But one thing we can dive into is the soundtrack, and no surprise, it’s period specific.

To recap, the film is based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith, stars Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett, and tells a ’50s set story about the relationship that develops between an older married woman and a young clerk at a department store. To that end, swoony tunes of the era and before will be heard throughout, many of them provided by Grammy-winning Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks, while Paul Thomas Anderson fans will recognize Jo Stafford‘s “No Other Love,” which was used to great effect in “The Master.”

@Nubia, I think the one you’re talking about is "My Foolish Heart".


@NUBIA Carter Burwell


The piano title theme is called Crossing and was composed by Carter Burwell. You can find it on iTunes


Nubia, I too went looking for the name of this gorgeous piece of music. What I found is that it’s by Dexter Britain. However, there is more than one trailer and the piece that I love best is not the one that Dexter Britain has on his Facebook page, called "The Time to Run." I imagine, though, that he did all of the piano and orchestral music that we hear in any of the trailers. I just have to find that specific song that I love so much. You can find Dexter Britain on Facebook.


Thank’s,,,,the Film and Musik its so beautifull……..:-*<3


what is the name of the song played in the teaser trailer of Carol? It is piano but I don’t hear it on soundtrack. I don’t believe they included it. I only heard the song on the trailer for Carol. Does anyone have a name for it?


It should be noted that the version of Silver Bells in the movie, by Perry Como, was actually released in 1968.


Amazing soundtrack ��


Thanks! perfect!!!
