A version of Jay-Z and Beyoncé ’s “’03 Bonnie and Clyde” with the lyric “Me and my boyfriend” replaced with “Me and my slow friend.”
A theme for Curley, the villain with the glove full of Vaseline: Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas performs a hip-hop version of Sublime’s “Caress Me Down” over a sample of Stone Temple Pilots’ “Vasoline.” But, y’know, dubstep.
Gwen Stefani doing a version of the Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up,” over sampled ukuleles. The song foreshadows Lennie’s ultimate undoing, and it’s a winking reference to the Prodigy album, Fat of the Land, which echoes George and Lennie’s pipe dream.
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Obviously, Moby would be invited to co-produce the project.
A reinterpretation of Blondie’s “Call Me” by Sleigh Bells with Fred Schneider of the B-52s yelling out “Ishmael” whenever the title is mentioned.
A fish-themed Girl Talk mash-up medley featuring obvious picks like Phish, “Barracuda” by Heart and the theme from Jaws, but also some more obscure picks like Ghostface Killah’s “Fish” and something off Neh Neh Cherry’s Raw Like Sushi. You know, for the big dance sequence.
Because of the nautical theme, the soundtrack features plenty of yacht rock performed in a shanty style, possibly by Ashanti. Songs include Kenny Loggins’s “I’m Alright” to give a good Caddyshack vibe — that gopher is kinda like the white whale of the golf course, and 10cc’s “I’m Not In Love” for the love scene between Ahab and the whale. It should be noted at this point that I’ve never read this book and it’s a miracle I can even write a sentence.
