"Trent Reznor wants to be friends on Facebook" — the phrase does not roll off the tongue. But with help from producer Atticus Ross, Reznor has made a solid soundtrack to David Fincher's movie by doing what he's always done: creating grand industrial rock, including a stormy, synth-powered version of Edvard Grieg's orchestral "In the Hall of the Mountain King."

    “Bird on a Wire”

    Leonard Cohen | 1969

    While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
