Music from Tropic Thunder
Tropic Thunder was very funny. One of my favorite parts of the movie was actually the very beginning – just as / before the it started. There were a number of fake previews for movies featuring the characters of Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr. and Ben Stiller. The lady next to me was huffing and puffing about them, complaining about the ridiculous number of previews that are shown before movies nowadays, before realizing that these previews were actually part of the movie itself. Could not help but laugh at that one.
There are 23 songs in Tropic Thunder, including Crystal Method, Ludacris, Flo Rida, Rolling Stones, Enigma, MC Hammer, Steppenwolf, CCR, Quiet Riot and the Temptations. That’s quite a mix. The videos and downloads for all the songs are on the Tropic Thunder page on ReelSoundtrack. Unfortunately, only half of the songs are on the soundtrack album.
