Though the soundtrack to the 2011 romantic comedy Friends With Benefits is compiled with variety in artists and genres, it flows with a cohesiveness in mood — though of course it can be enjoyed piecemeal just as well. Consolidated's Philip Steir gives Steppenwolf’s 1968 hit “Magic Carpet Ride” a tasteful remix reminiscent of DJ Andy Smith’s 1998 reworking of James Gang’s 1970 hit “Funk #49.” Fitz and The Tantrums kitschy go-go jam “L.O.V.” would do just as well on an Austin Powers soundtrack, and G. Love and Special Sauce’s “Booty Call” fits the film’s theme perfectly. Grant Lee Phillips does for the Cure’s “Boys Don’t Cry” what Counting Crows did for the Psychedelic Furs’ “The Ghost In You,” while Dyke & The Blazers’ late-‘60s jam “Let a Woman Be a Woman (And a Man Be a Man)” proves to be a breath of fresh funk. Visions of backwards worn clothing are sure to surface after revisiting Kris Kross’ “Jump.”
Love the songs. But I wish we didn't have to buy the whole album for some of the songs.
Awesome Movie, Awesome Soundtrack!
I just watched this movie tonight and I am telling you, I think it was one of the best, if not the best movie I have ever watched! Justin Timberlake acted the heck out of this movie, I have never saw such an excellent performance from him. Mila Kunis did excellent as well, but this movie is definitely worth watching and the soundtrack is pretty great too!
Justin and Mila are hilarious.
This movie was so much better than No Strings Attached. It was hilarious; Justin's rendition of Kriss Kross' "Jump" made me fall off my seat.
