Inspired by the great soundtrack albums of the 80s, the creators of Good Luck Chuck wanted to tap into the fun and upbeat sounds of today s thriving indie scene. They delivered! Leading off the album are brand new tracks from rock gods The Flaming Lips, college rock legends The Dandy Warhols, and up and comers The Honorary Title. Every single song is highlighted within the film from director Mark Helfrich, who has put together one of the best soundtrack albums in years. Good Luck Chuck starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba in theatres 09/21/2007
that era of huge songs from the movie albums has kind of died out, but every once in a while you get a bunch of bands doing a bunch of new songs. and one band that keeps popping up on these soundtracks is the wonderfully prolific FLAMING LIPS. from the aforementioned batman forever to suburbia to austin powers: the spy who shagged me to spiderman 3, the lips always seem down to contribute an original jam.
the latest film to add to the list is the upcoming Dane Cook/Jessica Alba sex comedy Good Luck Chuck. director Mark Helfrich (who a few years back released the awesome photographic memoir Naked Pictures Of MY Ex-Girlfriends) has commissioned some new original tunes from the lips, the dandy warhols and the honorary title, as well as a solid batch of previously released tunes from sharon jones and the dap-kings, bauhaus, shout out louds, art brut and others. --To The Maxx - tothemaxxx.wordpress.com
