EDITORS’ NOTES

The soundtrack to the 2009 date movie He's Just Not That Into You rolls with some tunes you may have already put in a mix for that special someone. There are the two requisite ‘80s hits — the Human League's "Don't You Want Me" and the ever-sunny "Friday I'm In Love" by The Cure — but you also get some boozy '80s Midwestern grit-pop with the Replacements' "Can't Hardly Wait" and the svelte "This Must Be The Place" from Talking Heads' epic 1983 album Speaking In Tongues. The soundtrack also gets a little rootsy with My Morning Jacket's "I'm Amazed" and the twang- rocking "I Must Be High" from Wilco's 1995 debut. Lily Allen's 2 Tone Records-inspired "Smile" and the Ting Ting's jagged pop hit "Fruit Machine" both help keep things sounding British and hip, while Corinne Bailey Rae and the Black Crowes add a couple welcome dashes of soul. If you liked Scarlett Johansson's album of Tom Waits covers, you're in for a treat with her ambitious rendition of the late Jeff Buckley's "Last Goodbye," which closes the album.

No to Scarlett

Jeff Buckley? No, listen, only a very few can even attempt a Jeff Buckley song and Scarlett is not on that list. "Last Goodbye" is a beautiful song and she sort of ripped it. I didn't even recognize it at first and that's not a good thing.

Scarlett, please don't do that again. Thanks!

The rest of the soundtrack is pretty much a Grey's reject comp.

just like mine. only better

i really like the selection of artists, and the "Don't You Want Me" by the Human League :) classic. Also, from the movie trailer, the Erin McCarley song. Isn't it funny you hear a song on a trailer, and you hope it's on the soundtrack, and it is?! lol. that's why it's good

imagleek500 ,

great soundtrack, greater movie.

saw the movie today
and it was the best movie ever.
it was horrendously romantic, yet wildy hilarious at the same time.
sure, its got a "chickflick" theme, but its gggggggreat.
and the music is GREAT.
whats cool is that its like MODERN music that most people listen to.
so it makes the movie enjoyable.
my faves are probably love save the empty, fruit machine, smile, and madly.

enjoy.
and WATCH THE MOVIE!
