Saturday 31 August 2002 @ 9:02 - GMT

Songs by the Rolling Stone, Elton John, David Bowie, Robert Plant, and others are featured on the soundtrack for the film Moonlight Mile, which opens September 27. Directed by Brad Silberling, Moonlight Mile is a drama about a young! man ( Jake Gyllenhaal) mourning the death of his fiancee while continuing his relationship with her parents ( Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon).

Silberling said he carefully chose songs for the soundtrack that are not necessarily well-known but are "the unsung heroes from some of the finest albums ever made... they're the ones you grew to love most, even though their better known siblings always stole the limelight. They're the ones you called your own."

Among those songs are the Rolling Stones' Moonlight Mile, Elton's Razor Face. Marc Bolan's band T. Rex are represented by more well-known tracks, while current British rock faves Travis weigh in with a new song, Love Will Come Through.The Moonlight Mile soundtrack comes out September 24, 2002.
