The following is a list of all of the tracks contained on the BR OST. I have listed all of the 23 tracks giving the running time of each and where abouts in the movie the piece of music can be found....

Track 1:
"Requiem" (Verdi)/ Prologue
- A fantastic start to the album that accounts for the whole opening of the movie, from the Toei logo all the way up to Nanahara getting knocked out on the bus. The track starts with "Requiem" by Verdi and is cut off by a piece that has characteristics that will emerge throughout the next 72 mins. Follows into more mellow music (Nanahara's fathers suicide) and takes off again with Kitanos stabbing.
Track Time: 06:38

Track 2:
Millennium Education Reform Act (BR Act)
- The introduction of Kitano. This is the music that plays when Kitanos helicopter is landing outside the school. The track leads all the way up to the point at which the corpse of Mr. Hayashida is exposed. Another track with militaristic tones, again with fast tapping marches.
Track Time: 03:01

Track 3:
Teacher
- A fantastic track that can be summed up in one word: chaos. This is the piece that plays just as Kitano knifes Fujiyoushi. Theres actually two pieces of music in this one track. The second starts from when Oneesan explains about the neckcollars. Also, includes the ticking clock piece of music for when Nobu is about to die. Another amazing piece of music...
Track Time: 03:28

Track 4:
The Game Begins
- This is the piece of music that plays as the class are being called and given their weapons. This track leads all the way up to Nanahara and Noriko going to the cave. Nicely leading to the next track...
Track Time: 04:27

Track 5:
Memory
- One of recurring themes throughout the movie. This is the piece that plays as Nanahara remembers Nobu. A beautiful piece of music, that starts with piano and slowly fades to a complete orchestral theme. Can't you just see the tears well up in my eyes?
Track Time: 02:45

Track 6:
Slaughter House
- This plays during the scene where Kiriyama kills all of Numais gang. Its the introduction of Kiriyamas theme as well. The track also includes the music that plays in the Mitsuko/ Megumi showdown.
Track Time:03:32

Track 7:
Radetsky March (Strauss)
- Kitanos Pep Music! Its a shortened version of the complete piece of music...
Track Time: 01:40

Track 8:

- The track begins with Okii jumping from the bushes. Another chaotic and pounding piece thats full of life. The track continues all the way up to Yukiko and Kusakas deaths (complete with a variation on Kiriyamas Theme).
Track Time: 04:37

Track 9:
Blue Danube Waltz (Strauss)
- Kitanos Pep Music: Volume 2. Like the Radetsky March, this is a shortened version of the whole.
Track Time: 01:21
