What Happens in Vegas Soundtrack Shouldn’t Have to Stay in Vegas
What Happens in Vegas is what you would expect it to be – not too serious, not too brilliant, but a good escape and just funny enough to make it worth the price. Not bad for a rainy day on the Eastern seaboard, or a lazy Sunday. You’ll watch it. You’ll tap your feet to the tunes and walk away with a smile.
The best part about the movie is the music: there are 35 songs in What Happens in Vegas. Unfortunately, the studio did not release a soundtrack album for the film. However, you can find videos and downloads for all of them on ReelSoundtrack.
My favorites from the movie include Mika’s “Grace Kelly” (which was pretty new at the time of release), Junior Senior’s “Can I Get Get Get,” Jet’s infectious “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” and the immutable Eels with “Hey Man,” plus “Tonight I Have To Leave It” by Shout Out Louds, and “If You Love Me” by the Buzz Junkies and many more. There also are quite a few happy go lucky party tunes, such as You Sexy Thing, Get Down on It and the Theme from Flashdance.
