This Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore comedy, like several other late-'90s films, played on the '80s nostalgia factor, a process impossible without the right music. The initial WEDDING SINGER soundtrack album proved to be so popular that this collection, featuring yet more music from the film, was trotted out. Eighties-hungry pop fans should certainly get their fill here.
There's a little bit of everything on this disc, from radio giants like Madonna and Hall & Oates to more obscure acts like Flying Lizards (whose desecration of the '60s tune "Money" is one of the highlights of this album). Hairspray and eyeliner abound as one classic after another leaps out at the listener, including a couple of oddly poignant tunes (Flock of Seagulls' "Space Age Love Song" and Spandau Ballet's "True.") And while the original Dead or Alive version of "You Spin Me Round" is all well and good, we long to hear Adam Sandler's uproarious wedding-band version of the song as featured in the film.
