Overview

Mike Myers' ultra-mod '60s spy spoof Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery skillfully wrings humor from the differences and the similarities between the '60s and '90s, so it isn't surprising that the soundtrack balances '60s pop hits with '90s songs that wryly rework those swinging styles.
