Editorial Reviews

Its setting was a record shop, and the soundtrack to this hip comedy was a sort of '90s alt-rock "best-of." You'll hear Till I Hear It from You Gin Blossoms; Liar Cranberries; Free Martinis; Whole Lotta Trouble Cracker, and more!

This soundtrack is filled with quite a number of pulse-raising, fast-paced songs that were typical of the mid-90s. Featured on the CD are "Til I Hear it From You," by the Gin Blossoms, "A Girl Like You," by Edwyn Collins, Better Than Ezra, the Cranberries, "Crazy Life," and "Sugarhigh."

However, I was kind of disappointed with this soundtrack in one major way. Like so many other people, after seeing Empire Records, I found that the soundtrack is missing a number of songs which I wanted to be on it. Where are "Money- thats what I want" by the Flying Lizzards, Dire Straits's "Romeo and Juliet," Maxwell Caulfield's "Say no more, Mon Amour, "Video Killed the Radio Star" and "Counting Blue Cars?" Its because of these omissions that Empire Records needed another soundtrack.

Great movie- only an OK soundtrack.

It's funny when you buy a soundtrack from a movie you're pretty familiar with and discover that you don't recognise half the songs. I think most people have reviewed this album have realised this too. However, that's not to say it's not good. It's a very "grow on you" sort of album. However, I have done a little research and these are some of the songs people have wanted on the album but couldn't find: 'This is the Day' - The The (played at the very end when everyone is dancing on the roof) 'How' - The Cranberries (Corey runs onto the roof crying, after throwing herself at Rex Manning) 'Snakeface' - Throwing Muses (Corey prepares lunch for Rex Manning) 'Plowed' - Sponge (everyone arrives for the big party at Empire) 'I Shot the Devil' - Suicidal Tendencies (Mark and his heavy metal friends are head banging, before Gina turns it off) The song that continues to elude me is the one that Mark puts on after he wins the M&M's game .. the only thing I can suggest is getting the video and reading the end credits and taking a guess. Hope that helps people.

People are interested to know the titles of the songs from the movie that were not included in the soundtrack, so here is a list of them:
'This is The Day' - The The
'Romeo & Juliet' - Dire Straits
'Video Killed the Radio Star' - The Buggles
'Little Bastard' - Ass Ponys
'Saddam a go-go' - Gwar
'Counting Blue Cars' - Dishwalla
'Money (thats what I want)' - Flying Lizards
Hope this was of some use, enjoy!

I have seen this movie numerous times, and when they released the DVD i bought that and the soundtrack simultaneously. I was in the air force at the time and me and my buddies sat around and watched this at LEAST once a day for a couple weeks. When I first listened to the soundtrack i was expecting to hear "Seems" by Queen Sarah Saturday. Stupid me didn't look at the back of the case. Also missing were "Plowed" by Sponge, "Counting Blue Cars" by Dishwalla, "Saddam A Go-Go" by GWAR (not "Gore" as a previous reviewer stated), and most importantly, the duet with Coyote Shivers and Rene Zellwegger on "Sugarhigh". I figure it this way. I can get every song in mp3 form that i want, and make my own second volume, INCLUDING the Shivers/Zellwegger "Sugarhigh" (and once again for the previous reviewer: Coyote Shivers is the guy who played Burko. The guy who sang Sugarhigh WITH Rene on the roof, and yes that is rene's real voice!)Now all of the songs i mentioned before is easy enough to find on cd (except the movie ver of "Sugarhigh" and Queen Sarah Saturday's "Seems"<the album has long since been deleted>), so you could also just buy a few albums by the different artists and maybe learn that you like them as well... Just a thought. I will be getting a copy of Queen Sarah Saturday's album though... soon at that... the perks of working in a record store.

Song from the movie "Empire Records"...
i think what you are referring to is "say a prayer for me". If so, check out the song "Plowed" by Sponge. Hope it helps.
