I’d Rather Meet Dave’s Soundtrack than Meet Dave
The music from Meet Dave is better than the movie itself, particularly if you like soulful classics from the likes of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas – one of my personal favorites. While Wu-Tang Clan and Ludacris make an appearance, most of the music is from the likes of Meat Loaf, Cher, and Earth, Wind and Fire. As for Martha, she is still touring and is as fantastic as ever.
The studio album only is score from John Debney, earning it a paltry ReelRating of 7/100 (only 7% of the music in the movie is on the album). But the videos and downloads for all 13 songs are at ReelSoundtrack.
Here’s Martha singing Dancing in the Street from a classic Soul Train performance:
And for something completely different, here is Wu-Tang Clan’s Protect Ya Neck:
