All 32 Songs from the Funny People Soundtrack

There are 32 songs in the movie Funny People. The soundtrack album has 10 of them, but you can find all of them here. It is an interesting mix of music – “grown up” is how I would characterize it – as is Adam Sandler himself.

I have not seen the movie yet (stay tuned for an update with information on the songs in each scene), but I have a feeling that this film is going to be a bit like Adventureland – a heartfelt and heartwrenching film wrapped in comic stylings. Although the music is certainly a departure from the eighties inspired Adventureland, there is a commonality with the 32 songs from Funny People.

The movie features a number of songs from Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison, not as the Beatles, but as individuals. It also has a bit of a reggae tinge with Bob Marley, The English Beat and a Clash song that is more reggae than rock. It also features James Taylor, Little Feat and Warren Zevon. Not to be typecast as middle age muzak, the movie also throws in Alice in Chains, Kool & The Gang and The Bangles.

Here’s the complete list of songs from the movie with links to the downloads for most of them:

Original music for Funny People by Jason Schwartzman and Michael Andrews
