As far as the soundtrack goes, well, it fits the mood to a T, to me.
You can preview three of the tracks on the author's site:
Doot Doot Garden
oh yeah i can see that working. too late now i finished it yesterday. amazing read, i second your recommendation to everyone.

it's weird, the weather right now is completely inappropriate, since basically the whole book is set in this snow-covered winter, i finished it on the hottest day of the year. :shock: i'm not even kidding, it was (as right now) at least 100° F. funny cos at one point craig's brother Phil cries in agony during a summer sequence about it being that hot. i was saddened by some developments later in the book, but ultimately it's a life affirming tale of faith and redemption, the kind i like!

"As a matter of fact I only work with the feeling of something magical, something seemingly significant. And to keep it magical I don't want to know the story involved, I just want the hypnotic effect of it somehow seeming significant without knowing why." - Len Lye

Awesome.  If you haven't read it, I strongly recommend "Under the Banner of Heaven" once you're finished.  You'll never look at Mormons the same way again.

As for me, I just started:

Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

It includes three other stories, three of which I'm too lazy to find out right now.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

I guess it's not so important now, and perhaps no one really cares, but the other stories were:
House of Flowers
Diamond Guitar
A Christmas Memory


And I've since moved on:

I just started reading Last Exit to Brooklyn.  It's written really weird.  I'm not very far, though, so who knows what I'll end up thinking.
