Just got this bit of info on the madly popular JUNO and its soundtrack sales...


LOS ANGELES -- Rhino's soundtrack to the acclaimed Fox Searchlight Pictures comedy JUNO was released last month exclusively to digital outlets and hasnow reached #1 on SoundScan's Digital Album sales chart. On the heels of the digital success, the JUNO soundtrack CD arrives in stores January 8 --less than a week before the Golden Globe Awards, for which JUNO received three nominations, including Best Picture.

The 19-track collection includes eight songs by Kimya Dawson, both as a solo artist and as a member of the groups The Moldy Peaches and AntsyPants. Two Dawson-penned instrumentals make their debut on the JUNO soundtrack, which also boasts songs from Dawson's 2004 album Knock-KnockWho? and her 2006 release Remember That I Love You. It was the film's young star, Ellen Page, who suggested Dawson's music for the movie, andPage duets with costar Michael Cera on a cover of The Moldy Peaches favorite "Anyone Else But You" (which is heard in its original version aswell). Dawson's other group, Antsy Pants, contributes a pair of tracks to the JUNO soundtrack. The eclectic album also includes music by Buddy Holly,Cat Power, Mott The Hoople, The Kinks, Sonic Youth, Belle & Sebastian and Barry Louis Polisar.

Directed by Jason Reitman (Thank You for Smoking) and written by Diablo Cody, JUNO stars Ellen Page in the title role as a whip-smart Minnesotateen faced with an unplanned pregnancy from an afternoon with the charmingly unassuming Bleeker (Michael Cera). She and best friend Leah (Olivia Thirlby) find Juno's unborn baby the perfect set of parents in Markand Vanessa Loring (Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner), an affluent suburban couple longing to adopt their first child. Along with the totalsupport of her parents (JK Simmons and Allison Janney) Juno conquers her problems head-on, displaying a youthful exuberance both smart and unexpected.
