Movie Meme Day 9

A Movie With the Best Soundtrack

Today, I am going to take the opportunity to vent about one of my major pet peeves. When I'm watching a movie and every stinkin' song in the movie makes me want to get up and dance in the aisles of the theater, I had better be able to march myself to my favorite music-buying-place-of-choice and pick up the soundtrack. How great is it to find the soundtrack on the shelves! Then, you turn the cd over and look at the song list. And instead of seeing the actual songs in the movie, you see nothing but original musical score.



In the case of The Ugly Truth, songs like Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold", "Everybody Got Their Something" by Nikka Costa, Flo Rida's "Right Round" and all the amazing Latin music that's in this movie are NOT on the soundtrack. Instead, the titles on the soundtrack are things like "Abby & Mike in L.A." and "Earpiece".

Okay, I understand that there are people who really appreciate musical scores. And that's great for them. But I think if they're going to release a soundtrack with just score on it, they should also release a separate soundtrack with all the actual songs featured in the movie.

So unless you want to build your own soundtrack from internet downloads (something I actually did with the movie Fools Rush In because it never had ANY soundtrack released), you'll just have to watch The Ugly Truth to get the fun stuff.

Be sure to wear your dancing shoes.
