Magnolia is the soundtrack to the Paul Thomas Anderson motion picture of the same name. The album is largely culled from the work of Aimee Mann, enough so that she gets title billing on the album, though it does include tracks from Gabrielle, Supertramp, and Jon Brion.

Many of the songs feature prominently within the film, with "Wise Up" even being sung by the cast at one point, but only two of the songs were written expressly for the film, those being "You Do" and "Save Me". "Save Me" would garner Mann an Academy Award nomination for Best Song, losing to Phil Collins' contribution to Tarzan.

The tracks "Deathly", "Driving Sideways", and "You Do" show up on Aimee Mann's following album, Bachelor No. 2, though the track "Save Me" replaces "Driving Sideways" on EU editions. "Nothing is Good Enough", here an instrumental, appears in lyrical form on that album. (Bachelor also includes "Red Vines", a song Mann wrote about director Anderson.)

The beginning of the song "You Could Make a Killing" and the bit that appears after the track "It's Not Safe", both from I'm with Stupid, also appear briefly in the beginning of the film, but the tracks do not appear on this album.

The song "One", written by Harry Nilsson and originally made popular by Three Dog Night, contains several obscure musical references to other Nilsson songs. It opens with a sample of Nilsson saying "Ok, Mr. Mix!" taken from the start of his song "Cuddly Toy". This version of the song also includes lyrics from Nilsson's song "Together" sung in the background. ("Life isn't easy when two are divided/ and one has decided/ to bring down the curtain/ and one thing's for certain/ there's nothing to keep them together"). Furthermore, the opening vocal motif from Nilsson's song, Good Old Desk is used as a background vocal line (at roughly 1:54 into the song). Neil Innes, from The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Monty Python and The Rutles, provides uncredited backing vocals on this track.
