Hope this was of any help
The song in the club is by Freakpower "Song 6" to help you narrow down your searches. Which isn't on this soundtrack, but for good reason...the rest of the songs have no lyrics, so this track would have felt out of place on this disk.
Also reviewer D. Garcia mentions some other songs that aren't on the disk as well, again for good reason.
"Row Row Row the Boat" (is sung as a Lull-a-bye) and is about 20 seconds long.
"Should I Stay or Should I Go Now" is being sung in a Karaoke bar (look closely at who is singing it).
"No Woman No Cry" Is sung by the two main characters, and horribly out of tune if I might add...(Maria is Tone Deaf.)
The others D. Garcia mentioned, I am not sure of why they didn't make it, but I am positive on why the ones I listed did not make the soundtrack.
Even without all the songs in the movie, this is one great soundtrack. Pick it up before it goes Out Of Print!
For the movie, it was perfect, and gets 5 stars as a background. For ambient listening, it's darn good.
Free Association is comprised of ex-DJ-turned-film-composer David Holmes (Out of Sight, Ocean's Eleven) and Steve Hilton. Together the two have fused an exotic ambient score with enough "there" to stand on its own.
I'll play it when I want to hear music, but also want to be able to think or write.
I hope you enjoy,
Santa Barbara, California
