Soundtrack Arrives Early On May 10, Score By Michael AndrewsHighly anticipated to some of us (this writer) and old awesome news to the Playlist folks that were at SXSW last month, Paul Feig's "Bridesmaids" starring Kristen Wiig looks and sounds awesome. Our SXSW reviewer called it "hilarious and heartfelt," and a lot of internal chatter has been saying it's the best Judd Apatow-produced film since "Knocked Up" in its balance of rude comedy, heart and even (yes), moments of social realism. No really, in our 7 Best Films of SXSW recap we wrote, "the film has a heart and soul, and even touches upon some Mike Leigh-like class issues in its surprisingly weighty story."

Soundtrack Arrives Early On May 10, Score By Michael Andrews


Highly anticipated to some of us (this writer) and old awesome news to the Playlist folks that were at SXSW last month, Paul Feig's "Bridesmaids" starring Kristen Wiig looks and sounds awesome. Our SXSW reviewer called it "hilarious and heartfelt," and a lot of internal chatter has been saying it's the best Judd Apatow-produced film since "Knocked Up" in its balance of rude comedy, heart and even (yes), moments of social realism. No really, in our 7 Best Films of SXSW recap we wrote, "the film has a heart and soul, and even touches upon some Mike Leigh-like class issues in its surprisingly weighty story."

Now the soundtrack details have arrived and they, too, look pretty good. As we already know, Michael Andrews composed the score and he'll always be in our good books for writing the fantastic, dreamy music to Miranda July's debut, "Me and You and Everyone We Know." He's fallen in with the Apatow crowd of late, having scored "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" and "Funny People" (which Jason Schwartzman partly scored as well). Plus, he wrote the music for "Cyrus" (the score was excellent, it's a bit criminal no disc was released) and he's also composing the music to "Bad Teacher," which is just another reason to anticipate that flick. More soundtrack details below.

The 13-song disc includes tracks by Playlist faves Fiona Apple and Inara George (George did all the wordless vocals for the Andrews music in the aforementioned July film and she rules on her own too), a cover of the Violent Femmes classic "Blister In the Sun" (by Nouvelle Vague), '90s faves Hole, two takes on the same Blondie song and some straight up musical irony too (Wilson Phillips). "Bridesmaids" hits theaters May 13. The soundtrack is due on May 10.

1. Wilson Phillips - Hold On
2. Blondie - Rip Her To Shreds
3. Nouvelle Vague - Blister In The Sun
4. Fiona Apple - Paper Bag
5. Kate Nash - Do Wah Doo
6. Britney Spears - I've Just Begun (Having My Fun)
7. Smokey Robinson - My Love Is Your Love
8. Inara George - It's Raining
9. Hole - Violet
10. Ryan Adams - Answering Bell
11. Michael Andrews - Boogalooo Annie
12. Wanda Jackson "Shakin' All Over"
13. Blondie - Rip Her To Shreds (Live Version)
