Death at a Funeral Soundtrack is Reborn with Four Simple Songs
The original version of Death at a Funeral is one of the funniest movies in the last 10 years, so I can say, I was not super looking forward to the remake. I am still weighing whether or not I actually want to see it. While I waffle, I thought I’d share a taste of movie in the form of the soundtrack. There isn’t much – four songs in all – from the Temptations, Sly & The Family Stone and Cameo, as well as Steppin’ To The Bad Side from Dreamgirls.
Given the funny little twist in the movie, Papa Was a Rolling Stone must be funny as hell in the film. At least, I certainly hope so. Maybe that will be my barometer. If someone can tell me whether Papa Was a Rolling Stone is used well in the movie, then I will run out and see it for myself.
The soundtrack album for the Death at a Funeral only contains the score from Christophe Beck. Here’s the list of songs from Death at a Funeral, with links to download them if you care to. What do you think? Was the movie worth the remake?
