Product Description

Amazon.ca

Soundtracks are all about setting a mood, so right away you know what to expect from one called The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Sure, it could try to portray the psychological complexity of the situation (though that would be a little creepy), but silly is definitely the safest and most-expected course. And "silly," "safe," and "expected" are the three words that best describe the The 40-Year-Old Virgin CD. You don't need to see the movie to imagine what kind of scene might accompany Michael McDonald's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," Lionel Richie's "Hello," and "Never Surrender" by Corey Hart. Of course the downfall of using obvious music is that it mirrors the title character's plight all too well. While his--um--maturity may be a little stunted, one could say the same for the musical maturity of this disc. The world got over "I Ran (So Far Away)" by Flock of Seagulls decades ago, but some in Hollywood never did. This CD is great for goofing around--you just might not want to pop it in when you have a special someone coming over. --Leah Weathersby

4.0 out of 5 stars You might get lucky! July 13 2006
Format:Audio CD
Music for this movie has been wonderfully chosen and it brings a lot to this intelligent comedy. Mostly hits of the 70's that will fit perfect with Steve Carrell's acting.

3.0 out of 5 stars A diverse sampling of music Sept. 12 2005
By George Dionne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Good

If you haven't seen the movie, that's okay. Just looking at the titles of some of the songs included on the soundtrack is sure to elicit a snicker out of you. You can just imagine where songs like "Virgin Man" (Robinson), "Just Got Lucky" (JoBoxers), "Score" (Workman), and "I Got Ants in My Pants" (Brown) fit into the movie. Although, if you're forty years old (or so) today, a lot of these songs may just remind you of your first time. "Heat of the Moment" (Asia) is one of those songs that really defined the early eighties with its synthesizers and harmonious vocals melodies. "I Ran" (Seagulls) is another one of those songs that you'll never shake from that era.

I'm sure that at a lot of proms and weddings circa 1985 people were slow dancing (and possibly getting lucky) to "Never Surrender" (Hart). Thanks to a Starburst commercial, "Hello" (Richie) seems to be making a comeback. For all the parody it gets, it's a great ballad. If you only get this soundtrack for just one song, get it for "Theme From Greatest American Hero (Believe It Or Not)" (Scarbury). There's just something about the cheesy, over-the-top, `I'm on top of the world' anthem that stays with you for years (though you're afraid to admit it).

The Bad

You can live without the cast recordings of "Aquarius" and "The First Time". As with most soundtracks, you really need to see the movie first.

The Verdict

The 40 Year Old Virgin Soundtrack scores (couldn't resist) with a diverse sampling of music that will recall your younger and more awkward years.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Music You Ever Completely Forgot About Aug. 26 2005
By Robert W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The 40 Year-Old Virigin Soundtrack is one of the best combinations of B-Side hits from the 70s and early 80s Pop and Broadway. The sountrack is all the better for not having the standard 70s hits that we've already heard in a dozen movies and commercials. It's brilliant, fun and totally enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good soundtrack, but see the movie first Aug. 14 2006
By Gregory Shelor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack is a good mix of familiar and forgotton late-seventies and early-eighties music. For those who remember those days, this is a nice trip down memory lane. For others who don't, probably not. But if you see the movie first, then the cd becomes a lot better (even funnier, as you remember the scenes in the movie they were playing during). Well worth looking for.

ps- The song Andy kareokes to in his house is called "Word Up" and it was by the r&b band Cameo, and it was a Top 10 hit for them in 1986.
