Knocked Up: The Greatest Soundtrack They’re Not Releasing

Fuck the Original Score; put out the collection  How many movies do you leave thinking, man, I should really buy the soundtrack to that film?  Sure, I liked it and all, and a DVD would be nice, but right now, I’d like to roll around in my car, on the train, at my place, and just listen to the music from that movie?  It doesn’t happen often, and yet when you roll into a Best Buy or a Sam Goody, there’s an entire section devoted to the soundtracks of many films, some great but most shitty.  So imagine my surprise when I went to pick up the Knocked Up soundtrack, and found only the original music written for and inspired by the movie for sale.  I’m sure, Loudon Wainwright III is a brilliant songwriter and all, but where is my “Shame on a Nigga” by the Wu-Tang clan?  Why don’t they just feature Wainwright’s songs on an album with Sublime’s “Santeria” and the B-52’s “Rock Lobster?

 Personally, I blame the record companies.  They’ve been dipping their greedy little hands into everyone’s pockets and jamming their noses into everyone’s business for the past six or seven years; so much so that they’re only crippling themselves.  I don’t want to hit LIMEWIRE and download the songs piecemeal, I want to walk into a store and buy them all in one pretty little package, and I can’t.  Because Movie Companies don’t want to pay twice to use the music in the movie, as well as the soundtrack, and the record company people don’t want to throw any of the profit to the Movie Company to license the film’s name for the soundtrack.  So neither corporation will create or profit from the sale of said soundtrack.  Nobody’s getting screwed here but the consumer. 

Knocked Up is going to dominate at the box office and make the Movie Company a shitload of money, and artists like Britney, Sublime, Wu-Tang, and the rest will continue to sell their albums; the only loser is the person who just wants to hear the fucking songs all in a row, on one CD, or in one directory on his iPod.  I asked for it and they didn’t have it.  I wanted to pay for it, and it wasn’t being sold, so who’s going to be the bad guy when I make it myself from downloaded music?  ME.  Not until I actually try to supply a demand, will the Record Companies get off their ass and start complaining about what I’m doing to them. 

Shame on a Nigga, indeed.

  51. Where would I be able to find Swing by Savage? Thanks.

  52. ****Theres a song at the end of the movie that is not daughter, or grey in l.A…its more of a beat driven song and I havent seen the answer on any board****

  53. Hey what’s the song with Trina? Alison and Debbie are dancing to it in the club in the beginning of the movie. Yea I agree with all. They should’ve released the soundtrack. I definately would’ve bought it. Thanks for the list. the internet unleashes all sorts of undiscovered things. Ciao


  55. I haven’t seen the movie but I looked up the soundtrack wondering if the hilarious song “Knocked Up” by Dan Baird (formerly of The Georgia Satellites) was in there. I recommend adding it to your unofficial movie mixtape.

  69. Word!!!!! You said it, man. I felt the same way about the soundtrack to Fight Club when I wanted the Pixies song from the film. Their loss, I had to download it instead. It would’ve been fun to have it with the rest of the sounds from the movie on one disc, I’d have gladly forked over the twelve bucks.

  70. I will take a look at all the blogs, thanks for sharing this list.

  71. I absolutely agree with you. The soundtrack to Knocked Up really touched me!

  72. Nice Work man Your blog is so great.Thanks very much for posting this topic

  73. just to put you straight, it does not cost film companies more to release a soundtrack. The record label pays for that and it’s a royalty for each each track based on sales. The truth is every film co. expect a soundtrack no matter how shit the film or how crap or little the music might be in there. I agree the music in this film is good and would have made a great soundtrack. The most likely scenario is that a label was not given sufficient time to release a soundtrack before the film got released theatrically or maybe felt the film was not going to be the cult hit it turned out to be, otherwise I’m sure someone would have done one.

  74. what is the name of the disco song when they’re in the club with the words turn away turn away turn away turn away turn away

  75. […] Still, that’s not enough to make stay home and bitch that he can’t afford to go out and have fun. What he does is go to a club with his friends. Image source: […]
