All 17 Songs from the Just Wright Soundtrack are Alright By Me
So I am really digging on the music from Just Wright, but they did not release a soundtrack album to the movie. Not to worry, you can find all 17 songs from the movie here. I don’t know why the studio did not release an album for the movie – there are some really good songs in the film – and I have a feeling a good number of people will be looking for them.
My favorite song from the movie is probably Van Hunt’s funk groove Out of the Sky. I prefer it to his four other tracks from the movie, Man of the Year, Tingle and Anything (To Get Your Attention).
Update 1: @Nola Darling (see comments) says that Mean Sleep, which is Van Hunt teamed with Nikka Costa, is actually the best song in the movie. What do you think?
It’s a good mix of R&B tunes. I really like Kevin Michael’s “Weekend Jump Off” as well. There’s also four tracks from Free & Easy, as well as tunes from Rahsaan Patterson, Kurt Harpel, Vikter Duplaix and Derek Menzies.
Update 2: @rukstar added two songs that I had missed: Mos Def’s “Umi Says” from the scene where they go to The Rucker basketball court, and “Next Time (Just Wright Remix)” by Common ft Queen Latifa, the song played during the credits and the trailer. I also added “The More I See You” which is the song Common is playing on the piano. // I think that means we are up to about 22 songs actually in the movie.
There is one song that doesn’t seem to fit in with the others – Unbelievable by Thousand Foot Krutch. Metal guitar just seems out of place here, no? But the music producer makes up for it by including John Forte’s song “Play My Cards for Me.” It’s my second favorite in the movie. Here’s a live acoustic version of the song.
I hope you enjoyed the movie. If you came searching for the music from Just Wright and ended up here, then you probably did. Here’s the complete list of songs from the movie.
