Every once in a while I watch a movie and become an instant fan because of its soundtrack.
The soundtrack to “Tammy,” a comedy that hit theaters in July, 2014, has so many awesome songs on it. There are excellent tunes that were really popular when they hit the airwaves.
“How Much I Feel” by Ambrosia is the ultimate break up regret song. Released in 1978 by the southern California band, the song went to number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first Gold single for the group.
Kool & the Gang, an extremely popular R&B, disco, funk and jazz band hailing from New Jersey, had a number 10 Billboard Top 100 hit in 1981 titled “Get Down On It.” It’s a groovy and upbeat song that was widely played in dance clubs throughout the world. “Get your back up off the wall! Dance! C’mon!”
Then there’s “Your Love” by The Outfield from 1986 which hit number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. Performed by the British pop rock band, the lyrics tell a story of a man wanting to have intimate relations with a female acquaintance while his girlfriend is away. Poor Josie!
Last song is a sleeper hit from 2012 by American hip hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. “Thrift Shop” went to number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has since sold over seven million copies. It features vocals by Wanz and was written to give homage to frugality as opposed to flaunting money like other rappers were known to do.
Well, I got $20 in my pocket so you know where to find me.
