Running with Scissors [Original Soundtrack]

The soundtrack to director Ryan Murphy's adaptation of writer Augusten Burroughs' memoir, Running with Scissors plays like a '70s jukebox at a roller rink. Burroughs' darkly comedic tale of growing up under the care of his mother's therapist is helped along by the likes of the Average White Band ("Pick Up the Pieces"), Elton John ("Benny & the Jets"), and the Vince Guaraldi Trio ("O Tannenbaum"), making for a nostalgic trip back in time that's only briefly interrupted by a lovely ballad from contemporary singer/songwriter Catherine Feeny. ~ James Christopher Monger
