All 17 Songs from the Horrible Bosses Soundtrack
The soundtrack for Horrible Bosses is anything but horrible. It includes songs from Spoon, Beastie Boys, Ting Tings, Money Mark and Dirty Heads. The soundtrack album is another thing entirely – it only includes one of the songs from the movie. The rest is just the Horrible Bosses score by Christopher Lennertz. Not to worry, we’ve pulled together all 17 songs from the movie together here.
My favorite music moment in Horrible Bosses was the use of Sabotage when Nick was thinking about throwing Harken out the window.
The most hilarious music moment was when Dale was singing That’s Not My Name in the car outside Harken’s house. I also liked the use of Spoon’s Underdog at both the beginning of the movie and during the end credits. Lay Me Down by the Dirty Heads was only playing in the background during the bar scene when the guys were talking about killing their bosses, but hearing it reminded me how good the song is.
In order to figure out the songs in each scene in any movie, including Horrible Bosses, I have to take pen and paper into the theater. I get more than a few strange looks when I do, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Tonight, I forgot a notepad and my pen wouldn’t work, so I had to try to remember the scenes that the songs played in after getting back home. My brain mushed the scenes a bit. I have all the songs from Horrible Bosses, and they are in the right order, but there are a couple gaps in the scenes.
The movie itself is hysterical – across the board. Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis are hilarious. And Jennifer Aniston was completely unexpected in how funny she was. Her character is so far from usual that everything she says is that much funnier than if someone else was delivering the line. It was so funny, in fact, that I think I might just have to go back and see it again. This time I’ll bring a pen that works. With the song list already in hand, I should be able to fill out the rest of the list.
