Comments: Contains a variety of artists and songs composing the soundtrack for the movie Blue in the Face. Soundtrack selected and produced by David Byrne. Contains Piazzolla's Tango Apasionado (version extracted from The Rough Dancer and the Cyclical Night (Tango Apasionado) ). The song is used as backdrop in the scene where a guy (played by Jim Jarmusch) quits smoking and is having his last cigarette while delivering a monologue to the smoke shop owner (Harvey Keitel) that also sold him his first cigarette. It is a good scene.
