I Love You,” “Freedom Writers” (for which, she commissioned an original song by Common and and sampling Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., entitled “A Dream”), and “Beautiful Creatures” (for which, Mary asked Dhani Harrison and his band thenewno2 to create an unique score comprised of electronica, “swamptronica” and orchestral melodies), Robert Rodriguez on “From Dusk Till Dawn,” Allison Anders on “Grace of My Heart” (for which, Elvis Costello and Burt Bacharach teamed to write the iconic song “God Give Me Strength”), and she recently worked with director/writer/actor Zach Braff on his follow up to “Garden State,” entitled “Wish I Was Here,” for which, she asked the artists Coldplay & Cat Power, The Shins and Bon Iver to write & record original songs.
