All 32 Songs from the Old Dogs Soundtrack
Here’s the complete list of all 32 songs from Old Dogs including downloads for them. The soundtrack album for Old Dogs has less than half of them on it, but you can find all 32 of them below.
Not surprisingly, the music from the movie is mostly a throwback to tunes that would appeal to “old dogs” in real life, such as Bryan Adams, Wilson Pickett, Pete Townshend, Lifehouse, Dean Martin and Zapp & Roger. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Summer of ’69 is a great song, as is Let My Love Open the Door.
I was pleasantly surprised to find Brett Dennen, Lilly Allen and The Hives in the movie, not to mention Pizzicato Five, which is a total shocker in a mix like this. Plus, you can never go wrong with David Gray, one of the most consistently underrated singers of our time. His music goes much deeper than Babylon and anyone who has ever caught a live show of his can attest to that (hat tip to Ed).
The low point of the album is probably the clichéd use of Chariots of Fire, but overall, it’s a good mix.
There will be a lot of people who will skip this movie because they think it’s going to be cheesy, formulaic or overdone. For those folks, the commercials that say “from the creators of Wild Hogs” will serve as a warning not an invitation. But I will admit that I actually thought Wild Hogs was pretty funny and I am sure Old Dogs will be amusing in the same way.
Here are the songs from Old Dogs. Hope you enjoy them. //Update: I’ve added notes on the scenes that most of the songs were in. The songs are in the order they appeared in the movie. Hope that helps.

Songs on the soundtrack album that aren’t in the movie. There are 32 songs in the movie, so I don’t know why they need extra songs on the album, when they leave off more than half of them, but here they are:
