Crazy Stupid Love Soundtrack (Songs) - Listen & Download
The Crazy, Stupid, Love soundtrack. Although few would argue with the assertion that love can indeed be characterised as both ‘crazy’ and ‘stupid’ (er, assuming we’re talking about the libidinous variety, rather than the love one might feel for a treasured family pet – say, a cute li’l wabbit. Aw), the soundtrack to the forthcoming movie with a title constituted of those three words is not so much daft lunatic, instead being more of a safe ‘n’ steady affair.

Directed by the I Love You Phillip Morris pairing of Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, Crazy, Stupid, Love on first inspection appears to be an odd couple bromance, with Steve Carrell as the middle-aged sad sack being giving pick-up tips by Ryan Gosling’s smooth-talking slickster. However the trailer indicates that the dramatic element of the story is at least as prevalent as the humorous one, and the soundtrack provides a further hint of this, with it lacking the knockabout, retro-irony numbers which have come to characterise the tie-in albums of contemporary comedy flicks.

Most of the 12 chosen tracks (all oldies, no newies) are fairly mellow affairs, with the combined effect harking back to the chill-out boom (if that isn’t too much of an oxymoron) of the late ‘90s/early ‘00s. Indeed, from the Fleet Foxes-lite of the Acorn, with their acoustic guitars and post-ironic spirituality, to the piano hook of Gram Rabbit’s Lost in Place, to the Middle East’s Blood (already heard on at least one film soundtrack this year: It’s Kind of a Funny Story, starring Zach Galifianakis), it’s largely the kind of good taste languor that might be put on the stereo during a dinner party. Just after dessert. Just before the cheese and cyanide.

There are a few vacillations in tempo, mind, with DC duo Thievery Corporation contributing both the brassy, bassy groove of The Numbers Games¸ complete with rootsy vocal from fellow Washingtonite, Chuck Brown, and The Heart’s a Lonely Hunter, an older and percussively funky number featuring the ever-familiar tones of David Byrne. Meanwhile, the late Doris Troy matches and perhaps surpasses Brown in terms of soulful vocals (Just One Look), while Say Hi’s Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (yes, really) provides a brief but welcome burst of higher-octane oddness.

The Crazy, Stupid, Love soundtrack is out on 26 July. The movie is out three days later in the US and on 23 September in the UK.

    In the very beginning of this film, I thought there was a John Legend song. But I don’t see it on the soundtrack. Do you know what it is?

        @doris: “does anyone know the name of the song at the end of movie when the credits start?”

        That’s Tenuousness by Andrew Bird. Fantastic song! Even better live.

    Crazy, Stupid, Love was a solid movie, even if it didn’t really offer anything new to the genre I still enjoyed it. I loved the music though! One of my favorite soundtracks since Garden State…I do wonder though, how do they determine what songs make the official soundtrack?

    For example, the movie had two of my all-time favorite songs in it, but only one made it to the soundtrack. The first one, “Almanac” by The Acorn is on the soundtrack and it played in Weaver’s SUV when Cal’s struggle to understand stops Jessica’s attempt to let him know how she feels. Love that song….

    The other one, “Loops” by Junip was the song playing when Robbie declares his love for all to see but Jessica tells him there’s someone else…and it didn’t make the cut. How does this get decided? I’d get the soundtrack for sure if they had “Loops” on it (probably still will buy it but ugh it would be better with Loops).

    Does anyone know the name of the song that is playing when Hanna is in the bar talking to her friend and Jacob is watching her and then he is walking towards her table and it shows him walking in slow motion. The song sounds like it has a techno beat to it.

      Talking Heads “this must be the place”. Great song! Actually, its pretty old, it came out in the 80’s. If you ever watch the original “Wall Street” it plays during the credits.
