Lolita

Nelson Riddle - CD - Rating: 9/10

Although a couple of the pieces on this soundtrack recording sound like they came straight from The Donna Reed Show, the overall vibe is a chill lounge groove. This is best expressed in the CD’s showcase track, “Lolita Ya Ya.” The album is interspersed with double entendre laced dialogue from the film, which is something I always like on soundtrack releases (i.e. Apocalypse Now). I would often bring this CD into my life drawing classes, but it seemed to only person who appreciated it was the male model who had a ridiculous tattoo of Buck Badger in the center of one of his butt cheeks. I think I was in good company.
