For Free Music Fridays, Lakeshore Records has whipped out the classic summer soundtrack that’ll put a smie on your face: Nacho Libre – Music From The Motion Picture! The album features two original songs by Beck, classic bits of hilarious dialogue from Nacho, and all the other fun music from the movie including score by Danny Elfman.
When the album was originally released in 2006, the various artists soundtrack charted to No. 5 on iTunes, so we know you’re getting the hits for your library! See the track list and download details below.
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. – RogerEbert.com
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.
