If you thought last weekend's double dose of '80s movies "Rock Of Ages" and "That's My Boy" were going to be the last gasps of the decade this summer at the multiplex, guess again. Seth MacFarlane's "Ted" is around the corner, and believe it or not, it's bringing a healthy does of the '80s -- along with a bit of '70s and '90s -- along for the ride.
While the official soundtrack (via Film Music Reporter) leans heavily towards the score by Walter Murphy, we've gotten our hands on the full list of songs in the film and the biggest standout is how many classic cuts from seminal scores are featured. This thing must've cost a pretty penny. Tracks from "Star Wars," "Raiders Of The Lost Ark," "Octopussy," and even "How To Steal A Million" are all featured along with a handful of songs from Queen's score to "Flash Gordon." MacFarlane's knack for pop culture references seems to be here in full force. Nostalgia types will enjoy songs by Tiffany, Hootie & The Blowfish, the "Knight Rider" theme, and a rather large selection of songs by uh, Daphne. Norah Jones gets a new tune on the soundtrack as well, penned by MacFarlane.
This certainly adds an interesting element to the film. The soundtrack hits stores on June 26th with the movie arring on June 29th. Offical tracklist below and on page 2, the complete list of songs.
