Soundtrack Q & A
Q: I wonder about a latin tune featured in this movie. It's played maybe 10 seconds in the background in a scene and isn't featured on the soundtrack album. I've heard the same tune in a Swedish movie. I've always wondered what the tune is called. Maybe you have an idea? (from tjompen in sweden,sundsvall)
A: The only song I see in the credits that sounds Latin/Spanish is "Ahora es Mejor" by Jonathan Richmond, but he's just kind of a friend of the makers of the movie, so his music fell in. I'm not sure if he'd be in anything other than a Farrelly Bros. movie (like the Swedish film you speak of). Or I'm missing something; I could be wrong. Perhaps the composer of this also scored the Swedish film and used the same bit of Latin-sounding music on projects. (thanks to Anthony, Chicago, ILadd more info
