Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The soundtrack provides a collection of songs from a wide arrange of genres: old school rock (Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley); jazz (Screamin' Jay Hawkins); and of course, skiffle (the first dive into music for Lennon, presented by the young cast, known as The Nowhere Boys). It's a wonderful combination of background music which inspired Lennon to create his own band mixed with actual live recordings of actor Aaron Johnson and The Nowhere Boys. The entire soundtrack is worthwhile for their take on "In Spite of All the Danger," a sweet yet raw performance complete with guitar riffs and soaring vocals.
The music is wonderful; seeing the music in the film is even better. John Lennon's talent really shines through. As it always will.
