Soundtrack Q & A
Q: There were so many great songs in this movie. Where can I find them? They are not on the soundtrack. I am not sure who performed these songs, so it's hard to do a search. (from linda in flanders, nj USA)
A: "Love Reign Over Me" by The Who, and there's the newer version by Pearl Jam. Also on the trailer they have a song called "Ashes" by Embrace. (thanks to Jillo, Chicagoadd more info

A: "Simple Man" is from Graham Nash's debut solo LP "Songs For Beginners" (circa 1972) which Charlie held up in the record store to Alan and said (I think rather profoundly) "look at this picture - he knows that he made a great album."

Q: The album version of "Simple Man" is from Songs from Beginners but this is not the one heard in the movie. Where can I get the recording heard in the movie?

Q: Hi, could you explain to me why this soundtrack CD has none of the songs I heard when watching the film? (from Alan in France)
A: The record company releasing this soundtrack decided to license only the original score written by Rolfe Kent for their CD. It is much cheaper for them to make a CD with only original score. It's too bad there is no CD with the songs from this movie, but it costs lots of money to license songs and if a record company figures it can't make any money, they won't do it. (thanks to SadSoundtrackDudeadd more info

A: Adam Sandler isn't singing anything in the credits... Pearl Jam's "Reign O'er Me" is playing.... (thanks to Anonymous, scilon countryadd more info

Q: Why do they use two versions of "Love, Reign O'er Me?" I knew there was a Pearl Jam Song on the soundtrack, so I assumed they didn't have rights to the original Who version. But I just saw the movie and they used both. Anybody know why? Why not just use the original? (from davidm in Boston, MA)
A: Adam Sandler asked them to do a cover of it specifically for this movie. (thanks to jarrett, canadaadd more info
