Yes Man Soundtrack

yes-man-soundtrack-yes-man-movie-soundtrack-songs-listen.jpg

So here’s the Yes Man soundtrack. Jim Carrey? Starring in a new high-concept studio comedy? As a zany everyman? Surely not, I hear you cry! Well, calm down. At least it’s not The Number 23.

Yes Man looks generic, predictable, uninspired – but then Liar Liar and Bruce Almighty weren’t exactly Citizen Kane, and they were pretty funny. Should be more than a few yuckles in there, worthy of an effort-free Sunday afternoon.

But should you buy (i.e. illegally download) the Yes Man soundtrack album? Well, readers, the shocking answer follows. First off, it’s important to note that the Yes Man soundtrack almost entirely comprises of Eels songs. Nine of them, all in a row (including a brand new one, Man Up). And nine Eels songs in a row is a pretty damn fine way to spend 29 minutes if you ask me – and since you’re reading this right now (don’t deny it) that counts as asking.

And then there’s an odd thing. Four tracks by a fictional band called Munchausen by Proxy, who feature in the film, fronted by… Zooey Deschanel. No, your eyes do not deceive you.

Now, the important question to ask here is this: does anyone want to hear Zooey Deschanel crooning over dirty electro? And “talk-singing” like a sardonic version of the guy from Cake? And it turns out: yes. She’s actually quite good. And oddly amusing, like Flight Of The Conchords, with less jokes but better music.

In fact, I’m going to say this: I really like this soundtrack. Go buy it. Right now. Who needs 16 tracks from the Stones and the Bee Gees and Urge Overkill and Dick Dale and Howard Shore when you can just get Eels and Zooey Deschanel? What next, Pavement and Michelle Monaghan soundtracking a Steve Carrell film? Tell me you wouldn’t buy that album.

    Zooey fronts a band called She & Him: she’s a fantastic vocalist, I have no doubt those tracks are gold.

    On the film itself, I have a hunch it could turn out to be a lot better than the (awful) trailer suggests. Especially as everyone keeps mentioning how great the source material is.

    Carrey does look a bit old to be doing his early years shtick.

    There’s some promise in the trailer I think. But it is a little disappointing. Carrey could be the leading comic of his time if he just tried to be.

    My husband and I had the chance today to go and see a FREE screening of this movie at our military base in North Carolina and this movie was indeed a good one. Well so we thought. So take the “sunday afternoon” and go see it. I don’t think it will be a waste.

    yeah i found that sound thats in the picture above

    Third Eye Blind Jumper lyrics
    I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,
    You could cut ties with all the lies, that you’ve been living in,
    And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand.
    I would understand.
    The angry boy, a bit too insane,
    Icing over a secret pain.
    You know you don’t belong.
    You’re the first to fight, You’re way too loud,
    You’re The flash of light, on a burial shroud.
    I know something’s wrong.
    Well everyone I know has got a reason, to say,
    put the past away.
    I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,
    You could cut ties with all the lies, That you’ve been living in,
    And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand,
    I would understand.
    And well he’s on the table, and he’s gone to code.
    And I do not think anyone knows,
    What they’re doing here.
    And your friends have left you, You’ve been dismissed.
    I never thought it would come to this, and I, I want you to know,
    Everyone’s got to face down the demons.
    Maybe today, We can put the past away,
    I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend.
    You could cut ties with all the lies, that you’ve been living in.
    And if you do not want to see me again, I would understand,
    I would understand,
    I would understand…
    I would understand
    I would understand
    Understand
    Ya ya ya ya yah
    Can you put the past away,
    I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,
    I would understand
    (I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
    I would understand
    (I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
    And I would understand
    (I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
    I would understand
    (I wish you would step back from that ledge my friend,)
    And I would understand
