'Drive' Soundtrack Climbs iTunes Charts on Strong Viral Reviews
It was No. 5 Monday morning as fans touted it on Twitter: "Listening to the 'Drive' soundtrack actually makes you 40% cooler than you were before."
The soundtrack to Ryan Gosling-starrer Drive is climbing the iTunes charts. It was No. 5 as of Monday morning, no doubt thanks to strong reviews on Twitter. Over the weekend, it was No. 7.
Fans have been touting the '80s electronica-influenced album, which can be downloaded on iTunes for $9.99 or bought in hard copy beginning Sept. 27. The Nicolas Winding Refn-helmed film hit theaters on Friday (and was beat by the 3D re-release of The Lion King).
In fact, the popularity of the soundtrack appears to be affecting what people think about the movie overall. Fan comments include:

I'm obsessed with "A Real Hero" by College (featured on the Drive soundtrack). Literally can't stop playing it! Loving the 80s vibe!

Drive starring Ryan Gosling? Muscular thrills with pulsating soundtrack. RG is so cool he can even make leather driving gloves look good.

Just ordered the soundtrack to DRIVE. Outrageously great music in Nicolas Winding Refn's film.

OK, so based on several recommendations, I just bought the DRIVE soundtrack. Poll: listen to it BEFORE seeing the film or wait?

Hard to imagine @BretEastonEllis doesn't love the Drive soundtrack. Or at least @BretEastonEllis as a 21 year old would love it.

"Drive" was a lean, sexy & violent genre masterpiece. Do yourself a favor, go see it ASAP. Soundtrack is killer. bit.ly/rjuqqh

Drive: insanely good film. Want to see it again immediately. Elegant, perfectly-paced, slicker than oil soundtrack, visceral.
