Danny Boyle’s 2000 thriller movie The Beach is all about so-called paradise and tropical bliss – and it has a soundtrack to match.


Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tilda Swinton, the film is an adaptation of Alex Garland’s novel about a young man called Richard who follows a strange map to the most remote corners of Thailand to find what is rumoured to be a utopic beach.

The film is as famous for its soundtrack as it is for its beautiful filming locations – so which songs feature in the movie?
