EDITORS’ NOTES

Baz Luhrmann’s modern-day retelling of Shakespeare’s classic romance gets much of its moody ’90s vibe from its zeitgeist-reflecting soundtrack, which revels in brooding alt-rock. Garbage’s “#1 Crush” pairs Shirley Manson’s moans with grinding guitars; Radiohead’s “Talk Show Host” surrounds Thom Yorke’s wail with stark textures; and The Cardigans’ pouty “Lovefool” combines sighed longing with an indelible pop hook. British soul singer Des’ree takes centre stage on the love theme “Kissing You,” her emotion-rich performance embodying the poignancy of this timeless, tragic love story.
