The soundtrack to Judd Apatow's latest comedy, Funny People, is a terrific collection of favorite boomer artists in both familiar and less familiar contexts. Well-known tracks from Ringo Starr (the 1973 George Harrison co-write, "Photograph") and Warren Zevon (his devasating farewell, "Keep Me in Your Heart") are complemented by thoughtful solo works from Paul McCartney (1997's "Great Day") and Robert Plant (2005's "All the King's Horses"), alternate takes, demos and live tracks by John Lennon (a demo of "Watching the Wheels"), Neil Diamond (an early take of "We"), James Taylor (a live version of "Carolina in My Mind") and Wilco (a live version of "Jesus, etc.").

Jason Schwartzman's band, Coconut Records, sounds as if they were lifted from the early `70s when rock turned into glam and radio pop. Adam Sandler adds a low-key cover of the Beatles' posthumous, "Real Love," and a half-sung/half-standup novelty "George Simmons Soon Must Be Gone." The latter's mugging interrupts the album's sincerity, and Maude Apatow's cover of "Memory" from Cats might be charming once; but only once. Those two tracks aside, this album plays as a cohesive mix-tape rather than a series of marketing opportunities, and will please both those reliving the film's story and those who simply like the collected artists. 3-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.

I don't know who selected the songs for this film, but when I saw the movie, I just had to purchase the soundtrack. Some of the gems include John Lennon's acoustic version of "Watching the Wheels." It's simply sublime. James Taylor's live version at this point in his career of "Carolina in My Mind" is also so sweet and tender. Even the early take of Neil Diamond's "We" puts me in a contemplative mood--and when I first heard this song in the release version, I laughed. In short, this album tells us all to step back, reflect, and consider all that is important in life.

I don't know how much influence Adam Sandler has on what songs go on the soundtracks from his movies, but they're always really enjoyable. Even if you don't enjoy Sandler's brand of humor, his movie soundtracks seem to have something for everyone, without using the same overplayed songs as every other movie out there. Surprisingly, most seem to capture the mood of the movie.
Full disclosure here: I have not seen this particular movie yet, so I don't know whether these songs will "fit" into "Funny People." These are good songs, and rather surprising choices.
