My Dad Requested...

that I figure out what songs were in the movie Reign Over Me (w/ Adam Sandler and Don Cheadle) and put together a CD for him for his next gift. He said the movie was just OK, but that the music was great and that the official soundtrack didn't have the real music from the movie. Guess they didn't want to pay licensing fees, etc. I haven't even seen the movie myself, but with a little internet research, I found the list of songs in the movie. And I have to say it really did have some excellent music. Good job, Dad. YouTubes below are for Pearl Jam's cover of "Love Reign O'er Me" and the UK band Embrace's uplifting "Ashes". I'm actually surprised "Ashes" never broke the US pop charts.

1. Love Reign O'er Me - The Who
2. Simple Man - Graham Nash
3. Out in the Street - Bruce Springsteen
4. Drive All Night - Bruce Springsteen
5. Birds of St. Marks - Jackson Browne
6. Stop Your Sobbing - The Pretenders
7. How to Save a Life - The Fray
8. All These Things That I've Done - The Killers
9. Ashes - Embrace
10. In This Life - Chantal Kreviazuk
11. Lean on Me - Bill Withers
12. I Ain't Got Nobody (I used the Fats Waller version for my dad's CD)
13. I'm Old Fashioned (I used the Ella Fitzgerald version)
14. Hoop-Dee-Doo (I used the Perry Como version)
14. Love Reign O'er Me - Pearl Jam
