Karyn Rachtman is best known for music supervising films such as Pulp Fiction, Clueless, Boogie Nights, and Reality Bites. She was the executive soundtrack producer for the notable soundtracks of Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet, Office Space & many more.

Fresh, LL Cool J Shaggy, etc) wrote and recorded a "read and rap-a-long" - which was distributed by Scholastic nationwide.
