Overview

The soundtrack for director David Gordon Green's stoner action comedy Pineapple Express is notable mainly for the inclusion of a brand new track (and custom title cut) from America's favorite bar band, Huey Lewis & the News. Taking its name from a particularly potent strain of marijuana, "Pineapple Express" (the song) is a throwback to Sports-era Lewis, mirroring the bluesy, sax-driven backbeat of "Heart of Rock and Roll" and "I Want a New Drug." It's not a bad tune at all, but the lack of a memorable chorus and the inclusion of a sample of actor Seth Rogen taking bong hits keep things squarely in the parody camp. What follows is a fairly pedestrian collection of disparate tracks for such a deliberately constructed "weed" movie, including a couple of left-field '80s hits from Robert Palmer ("Woke Up Laughing") and Eddy Grant ("Electric Avenue"); a little bit of Public Enemy, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and Bell Biv DeVoe to welcome in the '90s; and some Cypress Hill and Peter Tosh to help keep the smoke from sneaking past the wet dorm room towel and into the hallway.

you'd thunk they would put in MIA's &quot paper planes&quot , but noooooo. I heard that all the stuff in the trailers was just for show. All the clever cuts and music sequencies were just for the trailer. You can't find any of that in the movie. Oh well: still gonna see it...for Franco, of course!!!

This movie was awesome. The music definitely meshed well with the scenes in the movie. It definitely was one of the funniest movies I've seen in theatres in a while. Everyone, even non-smokers, should go see this movie.
