The Songs That Made Edgar Wright Make “Baby Driver”

“The acclaimed British filmmaker’s SXSW debut was a smash success–and it was guided by a soundtrack that tells its story.”

Bellbottoms” – The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion:

“There was a point in my life when I couldn’t stop listening to [the album] Orange. I remember very vividly. It was just when I first moved to London. I was 21. I was living in a house with some friends in an area called Wood Green. I had a cassette of it, and I just listened to ‘Bellbottoms’ over and over and over again. I started to visualize a car chase that would go along with the music. At that point that’s all that I really had. Then I was trying to think of what story could sort of service this kind of dream that I was having. Then I started to have this idea: I’m very much like the main character, in terms of how I use music to motivate myself. I use music to focus, like an internal motor. If you’re on a road trip you need driving music. When I’m writing, even outside of this movie, I have to write the music playing, and it has to be the right kind of music. Whenever I’m writing a script, I’m scoring myself by playing the right kind of music. So I thought there was something in this idea of a character who can’t operate without the right kind of music playing.”
