'Take Me Home Tonight' Soundtrack A Solid '80s Mixtape But Curiously Missing Eddie Money

Even though it has taken a few years to get into theaters, "Take Me Home Tonight" doesn't carry the stink of shelved film, but instead looks like a funny, foul R-rated comedy, and with the setting of the film firmly in the 1980s it naturally has the soundtrack to match.

Even though it has taken a few years to get into theaters, "Take Me Home Tonight" doesn't carry the stink of shelved film, but instead looks like a funny, foul R-rated comedy, and with the setting of the film firmly in the 1980s it naturally has the soundtrack to match.

Spanning eighteen tracks, "Take Me Home Tonight" is essentially a really solid 1980s mix and it delivers in spades with tracks by Duran Duran, Mötley Crüe, Wang Chung, Dexys Midnight Runners, Men Without Hats, Kim Carnes and of course, N.W.A. who fuel the very funny red-band trailer. However, curiously missing from the soundtrack is Eddie Money whose song provides the title for the film and is also featured from the trailer. We imagine a pretty boring reason involving the mundane ins and outs of music licensing kept him off the soundtrack, but still, its omission is pretty glaringly obvious.

The soundtrack is already available digitally, but if you demand a physical copy, you can get it on March 29th. The film opens this Friday. Full tracklist below. [KikAxe]
