Music from My Best Friend’s Girl – 40 Songs – and yes The Cars are among them

Jason Biggs is in love with Kate Hudson, but she’s in love with somebody else – a handsome funny guy, with an off-kilter nose: Owen Wilson. No, that was real life. Dane Cook. Yes, Dane Cook. Thankfully, the movie My Best Friend’s Girl ends better than real life. No Us Weekly covers for this dalliance. It also has a better soundtrack.

We’re talking 40 songs in the movie, including Malbec, Nena, Duffy, Tom Petty, The Kooks, Teddy Thompson covering Journey’s Separate Ways, and of course, The Cars with “My Best Friend’s Girl.”

This is a great soundtrack, only a quarter of which is on the soundtrack album that was released for the movie. Not to worry, the videos and downloads for almost all the songs are on

Here’s a preview – “Mercy” by Duffy. Love this song. The world can survive without Amy Winehouse after all:

And of course, Ric Ocasek of The Cars singing My Best Friend’s Girl. She used to be mine…
