All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The soundtrack for the boy-meets-former-porn-star comedy The Girl Next Door is surprisingly diverse; not only does it span the punk-pop, rap, and metal of most gross-out comedy soundtracks, it also includes classic rock, trip-hop, and pop as well as excerpts from Paul Haslinger's electronica-based score. Of course, more obvious and punny choices like Pepe Deluxe's "Big Muff," Methods of Mayhem's "Get Naked" which references Ron Jeremy in its lyrics, and PornoSonic's "Dick Dagger's Theme" which is introduced by the porn legend take up a fair amount of space on the album, but they're balanced by more sensitive tracks like Josh Rouse's "Sparrows Over Birmingham" and ...

The album's nods to classic rock, such as Thunderclap Newman's "Something in the Air," Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama," and Harry Nilsson's "Jump into the Fire," as well as Echo & the Bunnymen's "Killing Moon," seem a little out of place, but are still welcome choices. Likewise, the Shibuya-kei of Fantastic Plastic Machine's "Electric Lady Land" the trip-hop of Sneaker Pimps' "Spin Spin Sugar" feel more mid-'90s than mid-2000s, but they still sound good. Haslinger's subdued score excerpts also sound good, but they seem almost more suited to a drama than a comedy albeit one about falling in love and changing one's life. At any rate, The Girl Next Door is one of those rare soundtracks that ends up having its scattered sounds work for it instead of against it, and it works well outside of the film's context, too.

    Looking for a song.Plz help.

    I totally agree that David Gray's song "This year's love" should of made the soundtrack. It was a pivotal moment in the movie. I'm also looking for the artist and song title to the song of the part in the movie where she leaves him at the hotel, when he tries to get her drunk thinking he could score.Please help.

    I agree

    "This Year's Love" was the only reason I was looking at the soundtrack. Why not put that one on there?? Bad move...

    Lacking

    It's a good soundtrack, but it lacks David Gray's "This Years Love"(kissing and love scene), one of the most pivotal songs in the film.
