Every song on the 'Garden State' soundtrack, ranked

Zach Braff’s Garden State was—and continues to be—known as much for its soundtrack as for, well, everything else. The 13-song mix introduced The Shins and Frou Frou to a wider audience and gave well-established bands like Simon & Garfunkel and Coldplay a new home. And it gave thousands of Garden State fans something to pop into their CD player and keep there for days (or, you know, months) on end.

Braff’s latest film, Wish I Was Herealso has an impressive, already-released soundtrack. But in time for the film’s Friday release, here’s a look back at the soundtrack that started it all—and ranking all of its tracks, because not every song can be a life-changer.

Chris Martin and Cat Power pair up for song in Zach Braff's new movie -- EXCLUSIVE

Zach Braff has another song that will change your life. He swears.

Braff filled Garden State, his 2004 directorial debut, with infectious tunes from the Shins, Simon & Garfunkel, and Coldplay. Wish I Was Here, his directorial followup — which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and hits theaters across the country this summer — is similarly packed with cool music, including original songs from the Shins and Bon Iver.

But Sundance audiences weren’t privy to the final piece to Braff’s eclectic soundtrack. “We also have an original song sung by Cat Power, written by Chris Martin,” Braff says. “It wasn’t ready yet for [Sundance]. It’s the title song of the movie. It’s one of the most amazing songs ever.”

Wish I Was Here debuts in New York and Los Angeles July 18. The film opens in additional cities July 25.
