Product Description

Amazon.ca

Andy Kaufman, an American comedian who died in 1984, was the inspiration behind one of REM's best-known songs. The biopic, starring Jim Carrey as Kaufman, borrows its title from REM's song and also finds the band providing their first film soundtrack.

Besides the original "Man On The Moon", the soundtrack album features an orchestral version of the song and five instrumental backdrops specially composed by REM. Michael Stipe can also be heard duetting with Carrey (in character as Kaufman) on the charming "This Friendly World"; while the real Andy Kaufman gets to trounce Slim Whitman's "Rose Marie" and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive". Musical muscle comes from the otherwise unavailable REM song, "The Great Beyond", an enigmatic ballad in the style of "Electrolite". But with Kaufman best-known in Europe for his role in the TV series Taxi, and the dialogue snatches and incidental music having little real meaning outside the film, this is really only for REM completists. --Patrick Humphries

5.0 out of 5 stars IN THE SPIRIT OF ANDY May 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack composed of mainly R.E.M. songs stays true to the essence that was Andy Kaufman. R.E.M. fan rejoice. Andy fans rejoice. This album was made especially for you. There are several standout tracks such as "The Great Beyond," "This Friendly World," (which is a duet between Michael Stipe and Jim Carrey) and of course "Man on the Moon." But what truly make this album worthwhile are the little skits performed by various members of the cast in between songs. This is an excellent album a far as soundtracks go. It was not composed of hit songs just to make money. It is a well put together album. I give it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would the Real Andy Please Stand Up? Dec 30 2001
By tvtv3
Format:Audio CD
If you are a fan of R.E.M., a fan of Andy Kaufman, or enjoyed watching the movie MAN ON THE MOON, this is a great soundtrack to own. Two of the songs on the album: "The Great Beyond" and "Man on the Moon"; are songs performed by R.E.M. Not only that, but the film's score-much of which is included here-was written by the band as well. For Andy Kaufman fans, the album has a few songs performed by Andy and his alter-ego, Tony Clifton. Well, actually they were performed by Jim Carrey, but Jim Carrey said he actually became Andy while performing the movie, so even though it's him, he (and many others) swear it's Andy (Andy would have loved playing with people like that). Finally, this album has several dialogue clips from the movie. Some suggest that this takes away from the album, but I find it does the exact opposite: the clips enhance the music. And for those of you who aren't R.E.M., Andy Kaufman, or MAN ON THE MOON fans; this is still an enjoyable album to listen to: "The Great Beyond" and "Man on the Moon" are great songs as is the theme from Taxi and the "Mighty Mouse Theme". A real treat.

I love R.E.M., I really do. Therefore I bought 'their' score of the brilliant movie Man On The Moon, after hearing their single The Great Beyond. This score also features the classic R.E.M. song Man On The Moon, as well as an orchestral version. A very nice bonus. This Friendly World is another R.E.M. song, a very sweet one with guest vocals by Jim Carrey (as Andy Kaufman and his alter ego Tony Clifton). Sadly, these songs are this score's only highlights. The rest of the album sounds very boring to me. Surely R.E.M. could have done a better job making a score for a brilliant movie like this. Sadly, they failed. But this score is definitely a nice collector's item for R.E.M. fans. If you're not a fan, I recommend to spend your money on something better. (Tip: Try a Radiohead album...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Soundtrack March 1 2001
Format:Audio CD
Who knew R.E.M. would be so good at film scores? Thier instrumental work on this album is flawless, especially the orchestral version of their classic song "Man On The Moon",and the gorgeous "Miracle"-possibly the most haunting,enduring music they've ever done.And,of coarse,you get thier great single "The Great Beyond",one of thier best.On top of that,you get goodies like the theme from "Taxi","Kiss You All Over",by Exile(c'mon,you know you love it),The "Mighty Mouse Theme",and a priceless version of "I Will Survive",sung with ally-cat-in-heat grandure by Tony Clifton(Jim Carrey),that may be better than the original.Also,as an added bonus,you also get "One More Song For You",sung by the real Andy Kaufman,just a small reminder of why they did all this in the first place.If you're a fan of Andy's,Jim Carrey's,or R.E.M.,or just good music,this is a sure bet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better then what I exspected... Jan. 14 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD becuase I thought Jim Carrey did a great job doing Andy Kaufman.But every thing Jim does is great,hehe.The music in it is pretty good.My fave is This Friendly World.But I dont think we needed Tony to sing part of it.Man On The Moon is cool of course and the Mighty Mouse Theme song is funny.I like most of the music on here with maybe onley skipping Tony's I Will Survive.And the clips from the movie are the key to making this CD great.All an all if you like the movie you'll enjoy the soundtrack,O-Kay?

5.0 out of 5 stars One in a million Jan. 6 2001
Format:Audio CD
A lot of songs have nice melodies and nice beats, but there are only a few songs that can make your heart flutter; Moreover, there are only a few CD's that manage to aggregate many such songs. Man on the Moon is such an album: Its melodies incite a sing along, its lyrics cause you to wonder, its beats foster a toe tapping session, and together they warm you. One word of caution, don't listen to this great CD in public...because otherwise you maybe tapping your toes, singing along, and wondering, and smiling a chesire cat grin in front of everyone

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Album, for the most part Dec 24 2000
Format:Audio CD
Hey, lemme start out by saying that I'm open to almost all kinds of music. Overall, this was a very good album. I love "Great Beyond", "Man on the Moon", and "Friendly World". However, the "Taxi" theme song, I could do without. I did like the recordings of the real Andy singing, and Tony Clifton's "I Will Survive" is hilarious. Although I love REM, some of the orchestrations were a bore to sit through, but it was for a movie, so I can let that slide. Overall though, this is worth your buck if you like REM.

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh... Sept. 3 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Six of one, half a dozen of the other. Several songs are enjoyable ("Man on the Moon", "Great Beyond", Exile's "Kiss you all Over") and many of the little novelties included are much appreciated (themes from "Mighty Mouse" and "Taxi", Tony Clifton performing "I will Survive"). But R.E.M.'s score feels a bit generic, the bits of film dialogue are kind of unnecessary, especially considering the train wreck of a script, and the orchestral version of "Man on the Moon" is just embaressing.
And hey, why isn't Andy's A capella wrestling fanfare included?
