Soundtrack Fix: Whip It

I just came from a preview screening of Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut, Whip It. I have to say, I was beyond satisfied with this movie and I hope Barrymore directs more in the future. One of my favorite aspects of the movie (and there were many – a review will be posted shortly, I promise) was the soundtrack. I absolutely loved the music used in the film.

Here is a sampling of the some of favorite songs featured in Whip It.

1. “Pot Kettle Black” – Tilly and the Wall

2. “Sheena Is a Punk Rocker” – The Ramones
3. “What’s the Attitude” – Cut Chemist
4. “Bang on” – The Breeders
5. “Dead Sound” – The Raveonettes

6. Blue Turning Grey – Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
7. Your Arms Around Me – Jens Lekman
8. Learnalilgivinanlovin – Gotye
9. Boys Wanna Be Her – Peaches

10. Jolene – Dolly Parton
11. Caught Up in You – .38 Special
12. Never My Love – Har Mar Superstar feat. Adam Green
13. Black Gloves – Goose
14. Crown of Age – The Ettes

15. High Times – Landon Pigg, Turbo Fruits
16. Unattainable – Little Joy
17. Lollipop [Squeak E. Clean & Desert Eagles Remix] – The Chordettes
18. Doing It Right – The Go! Team
19. Breeze – Apollo Sunshine

The Whip It soundtrack is pretty fantastic; I could listen to Peaches all day. Be sure to check it out when it is released on Tuesday, Sept. 27. I know I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy.

One thought on “Soundtrack Fix: Whip It”

  1. This is really one of the best soundtracks that’s been out for awhile…can’t wait to see the movie. Love The Raveonettes and Tilly and the Wall, but I was especially happy to see that they used Little Joy’s “Unattainable” – that was one of favorite tracks from 08…I can’t wait to see how they use the song in the movie.
