It’s Kind of a Funny Story – Soundtrack Highlights

with Blue Scholars, The XX, Queen, Bowie, Red Man & Method Man!

Blue Scholars

While watching It’s Kind of a Funny Story, I ran across quite a decent soundtrack.

The initial song that caught me was The XX’s “Intro”. At the time, however, I recognized it as a Blue Scholars track I had heard a few months prior and forgot it was a remix. I’ll I could remember was how well Geo glided across this beat. So I Shazam’d it, Google’d “The XX Blue Scholars”, and BAM, I found Blue Scholars’ “Lumiere”.

After that a few other interesting tracks popped up, including Method Man & Redman’s “Da Rockwilder” and Queen & Bowie’s classic “Under Pressure”. “Under Pressure” may be clichéd to hell by many films, probably including this one, but Bowie’s affectionate voice rises above all the other bs.

A few other tracks made this typical teen struggle a good listen. I’m no movie critic, but the storyline and acting, along with the music, could have carried this film if it wasn’t for the inconstancy in directing – felt like forced sentiment throughout the film. Still a good flick to get lost in.
