Free Music Fridays: Be Kind Rewind

Be Kind Rewind Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - Free Music Fridays

Michel Gondry’s “Be Kind Rewind” is whimsy with a capital W. No, it’s WHIMSY in all caps. Make that all-caps italic boldface. Oh, never mind. I’m getting too whimsical. Maybe Gondry does, too. You’ll have to decide for yourself. This is a movie that takes place in no possible world, which may be a shame, if not for the movie, then for possible worlds. –

Do you remember when video stores existed?  In Be Kind, Rewind, Jack Black and Yaslin Bey (aka Mos Def) are a couple of video store clerks who re-shoot every film in the store after inadvertently erasing all the tapes in the inventory.  Sounds wild, right?  Lakeshore Records released the soundtrack back in 2008, and 100 lucky people will get a chance to own the music to this classic comedy!  See the track list and details on how to get your free copy of the soundtrack below.

The first 100 people to email with subject line, “Be Kind Rewind” will get a free download code to the album!  Hurry: first come, first served or through Thursday, May 21 at 12 noon PDT (while supplies last).  Enjoy!
