As i sit here watching one of my favourite films of all time, i can't help but fall in love with the quirky, adorably written soundtrack of Juno. The soft voices and guitar plucking in the background of (my husband) Michael Cera and Ellen Page being effortlessly cool never fails to make me enter a dream land.

I love each song from the soundtrack however i do have my favourites:
Barry Louis Polisar | All I Want Is You
Harmonica plus the strong accent possessing the song equates to a feel good head bobbing melody. These lyrics are so lovely, with the repetition of 'all i want is you' throughout this could easily become an alternative love song for the unique characters within the film.
Belle and Sebastian | Piazza, New York Catcher
This is just beautiful, i love the chord progressions and the lyrics complement the soft guitar strumming perfectly. I particularly love the lines, 'Oh elope with me in private and well set something ablaze. A trail for the devil to erase' and 'I love you i've a drowning grip on your adoring face'...well, the song is bursting with swooning lines.
Cat Power | Sea of Love
The simplicity within this song gets me everytime. With the basic strumming it allows Cat's beautifully toned voice to create wonderful melody's, so free and effortless. This effortless beauty, as well as the shorter than most length of the music, lets the message of love within the song shine through.
Overall, this has to be the most adorably cute yet quirky soundtrack i know. In general, i just love the romantic lyrics paired with the strong theme of guitars...i really want a ukelele now. Also, i wouldn't mind having Juno on dvd to watch over and over and over and...yeah, i just wouldn't mind that.
