Soundtrack Q & A
Q: What is the name of the song that the two are singing the car? (from t in franklin,galloway,oh)
A: Tom and Richard sing "Superstar," "Eres Tu," "Come On Eileen," and attempt singing "It's the End of the World As We Know It" (but fail). All of these songs should be on the soundtrack. (thanks to Anthony, N. Chicago, ILadd more info

Q: What the name of the song with those bagpipes? They played when his father died and at the funeral as Tommy was walking away. (from Talentgirl in New York, NewYork)
A: "Amazing Grace." This version is by The Pipes and Drums and Military of the King's Own Scottish Borderers. (thanks to Anthony, N. Chicago, ILadd more info
A: I don't think that's right.... I've been looking for that song forever, and sure I can find Amazing Grace played on the bag pipes everyday. But in the movie, the song is backed up by an orchestra and it sounds so much better. That's what I'm trying to find!!!!! The version you gave us is good, but it's not the one in Tommy Boy!!! (thanks to Mike, Eau Claire, WI. USAadd more info
A: I am also looking for this information.

The drum and horn backed version seems to pop up from time to time in the movies. It was also in Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan, during Spock's Eulogy (although the music changed to an alternate rendition of Amazing Grace with the scene change to an exterior shot of the enterprise releasing the casket torpedo casing)

It was also shown in video by a militaristic scottish band at the end credits of Amazing Grace (2007) about William Wilberforce, and tangentially his association with John Newton, the composer of the lyrics of the song Amazing Grace. The depicted band could be the group cited above, but I haven't yet found credits or documentation... (thanks to anonymous, central midwestern United Statesadd more info

A: I'm sure it is, bro. If I'm wrong, the movie's wrong because the credits say it is by that group. (thanks to Anthony, Chicago, ILadd more info
A: As a matter of fact, the previous people were right -- that is the song. The horns and backup orchestra blend in at about second 55, you need to listen to the entire song -- it is the correct version. (thanks to Lawrence The Lion, Allentown, PA, USAadd more info
A: The bagpipe music in the background is performed by the United States Marine Corps Band. (thanks to Me, myself, and I, Georgiaadd more info

Q: There was one great song I remember called "Jell" or "Gell." Who did it and what's the real name? (from old dog in bradofrd pa)
A: I don't know what song you could possibly be talking about (no offense). There aren't any song titles in the credits called "Jell" or by "Jell," and I don't remember "Jell" being a lyric in a song from the movie. Anything more specific you can find, like the scene where the song you're looking for plays? (thanks to Anthony, N. Chicago, ILadd more info
A: Gel was from a band called Collective Soul, and I believe it was in Dumb and Dumber, not Tommy Boy. (thanks to CraSYDiamond, Kingsville, Ontario, Canadaadd more info

Q: What's the song that Tom and Richard sang in the car? It was like " baby baby oh baby..." (from kyle in o'fallon MO')
A: "Superstar" (thanks to E, Eadd more info
A: The good ol' Carpenters... (thanks to youarenotme, Homeadd more info

Q: What is the name of the hardcore sounding song that is playing while Tommy and Richard drive the cop-friend's car? The tape goes in and out and the two are headbanging to it. (from paul in norcross)
A: I'm not sure what the answer is, but the scene you describe is in a different movie - Black Sheep (1996). (thanks to anthony, Chicago, ILadd more info

Q: What is the rock song playing when Tommy says "Hey good tune!"? (from ogie in Canada)
A: Not sure of the name, but it's a Damn Yankees tune. (thanks to rocker, PAadd more info
A: The song is "My Hallucination" (thanks to incog, Utahadd more info

Q: What's the song playing when Tommy is hitting the bong with his college buddies? (from lz in grand rapids, mi)
A: Track 1, "I Love It Loud." (thanks to Anthony, Chicago, ILadd more info

Q: Is the instrumental song used as the general theme throughout the movie available? I can't seem to find it on the soundtrack CD.
...from Scott in Iowa (answer Scott's question)

Q: Around the beginning, after Tommy finds out he's going to graduate with the D plus, what is the song playing for literally 5 seconds before the next song "I Love It Loud" is heard? Any blues listeners would probably know it - it starts like a steady beat and goes like "...alright let's do it woooh...." I almost wanna say it sounds like Canned Heat but with an electric guitar in there too. Anyone know?
