Just Say Yes to the Yes Man Soundtrack – All 48 Songs from the Movie

I was excited to see Yes Man even before I knew that the Eels were contributing lucky number 13 songs to the movie.

But if that weren’t enough, the movie also features Bloc Party, Dinosaur Jr., Journey, The Raconteurs, The Bravery, Superchunk, They Might Be Giants and the Go Go’s.

Update 2: Right off the bat…the song that everyone is asking about is Separate Ways by Journey. It plays as his ringtone at the beginning and the song playing while he is on the motorcycle at the end.

There are 48 songs in all but the soundtrack album only has 13 of them. That means there are 35 songs missing.

Update 1: I saw the movie tonight and compiled as many of the songs from individual scenes as possible. I had some difficulty with the order of some of the songs and placing the others, so your help is greatly appreciated.

If you want to go straight to the videos and downloads for each of the songs, you can find them at Reelsoundtrack.

Here’s the list of songs from Yes Man with notes on scenes where I could discern the songs and links to the downloads where I could find them. Hope this helps.

Update: Mr.JROC83 and Wulf Slayer (see comments) both think that Hot N Cold by Katy Perry is in the movie. What do you think? Do you remember hearing it? If so, which scene? Weigh in on the comments.

Update 3: I am getting the DVD tonight and will desperately try to figure out the name of the song during the seminar. It has been killing me for months too.

    1. I give you a huge thanks for the playlist. The movie was great 2 everyone should see it 😛

    2. Saw is epic and better then nay of this crap, dont even compare it !!!

    3. Charlie clouser makes great songs, from Saw,

    4. i have a huge huge huge question.
      there is a repeating song in the movie.
      it occurs in the end where he’s running with her telling her he’s sorry is one of them.
      it’s just a small acoustic piece that’s background music.
      yet, i’m dying to know it.

    5. Thank you so much. I didn’t know it was Journey. Great track.

    6. you didnt credit the song “Hot and Cold” by Katy Perry

    7. I don’t think Hot and Cold was in there, honey…

      If you ask me, it doesn’t seem like the type of film that would include such a song.
      Oh, and I agree with Lisa, I’d love to be able to buy that nice little acoustic piece.
      It makes me sad that iTunes only included 13 of the songs, and most of them are album only 😦

    8. Hot and Cold was in it, I’m 100% sure. My friend and I started singing along.

    9. what was the song played at the end?

    10. I bought the album off Amazon but i can;t find “Journey To The Center Of The Earth by Von Iva and Zooey Deschanel” anyone know where i can dl it?

    11. Thanks! I really wanted to know the ring tone and motorcycle song. and i also wanted to learn the song when the mans about to jump, it seemed easy but a good song. Thanks a lot!

    12. Can’t seem to find any of these Eels songs to download anywhere? I use limewire, I see you have another site, but you have to pay?

    13. amazing!!!!!! 😀

    14. Yes Man the movie was amazing, the songs were awesome, and this was amazingly awesomely helpful! Thanks 😀

    15. Someone knows the name of the song played before the “scene of the jump”. I’m not talking about the Third Eye Blind song, just the little instrumental piece played while Jim Carrey is running starways up tu save the jumper.

    16. They are amazing !!! :))

    17. hot n cold was in it cuz i no the song

    18. i’d also like to know the name of the song played at the end saying ‘what the h*ll” in it.

      • do you mean “what the sh*t”?
        if so, it’s “Yes Man” by Von Iva and Zooey Deschanel

        I downloaded it from Amazon.com mp3’s.

        great song!

    19. (its while they are riding on the body skates midway thru the end credits)

    20. Thanks for these, i’m trying to work out the name of the instrumental played before the scene of the jump too! It sounds like the intro to something anthemic but i can’t put my finger on it.

      yet, i’m dying to know it.

    27. does any one know that song thats playing in the car when he gets droped off at the camera jogging scene???

    28. This is not really a “singing” but after singing Third Eye Blind’s “Jumper”, Jim said “I’ve got blisters on my fingers”

      That is a direct reference to The Beatles’ song, “Helter Skelter” which Ringo said the same thing after the eighteenth take.

          Fill it up let’s blast the jams and ride
          While we’re cruisin’ around in the street
          Listen up for the party in feet

          Slap me five that’s the place we’ve arrived it’s alive
          Ev’rybody take it to the top we’re gonna
          Stomp all night wanna party
          Till morning light

          Runnin’ runnin’ runnin’
          The set is hot there’s people wall to wall
          Old gones young things short ones standing tall
          Grab the one with the smile on her face

          And hit the floor and stay right on the case
          The heat is on and the funk just won’t leave us alone
          Ev’rybody take it to the top we’re gonna

          Stomp all night in the neighborhood
          Don’t it feel all right gonna
          Stomp all night wanna party
          Till morning light

          Stomp step down in it put your foot
          Where you feel the fit
          Stomp you don’t want to quit
          Put your heels where you’re feeling it

          Stomp all night in the neighborhood
          Don’t it feel all right gonna
          Stomp all night wanna party
          Till morning light
