Soundtrack Q & A
Q: What is the song playing when they open and close the doors in the big house at night? (from memo blanco in monterrey, nuevo leon, mexico)
A: The song is "Oh Yeah", written by Boris Blank and Dieyer Meier and sung by Yello. It is also played earlier when Brantly takes Vera to her country house in the limo. (thanks to none, seattle, waadd more info

Q: Who sings "Walkin' on Sunshine" in this movie? (from Melody Snyder in San Diego)
A: Katrina and the Waves (thanks to Mi-2, The Netherlandsadd more info

Q: What music is playing in the "rush hour" scenes - the fast paced, energetic instrumental while they show the "suits" headed to work, etc? It's not on the soundtrack and I want to use it for a sales presentation! (from Hero in Tampa)
A: Hey Hero. The song is the instrumental version of "The Secret of My Success." I have also wanted that cut and cannot find it anywhere. (thanks to Shane, Lincoln, NE, USAadd more info

Q: What's the slow romantic song playing when they kiss on the boat? (from alex in london)
A: "Water Fountain" by David Foster (thanks to Tisha , Hollywood, FLadd more info

Q: Don't know if anyone has ever picked up on this. But in the movie the words to Restless Heart's song on the soundtrack cover "Don't Ask The Reasons Why" are COMPLETELY different. And if you review the credits at the end of the movie, the cover title to the song is actually "Something I've Got To Do" instead of "Don't Ask The Reasons Why." Thing is, the words to the original song in the movie are much better. How can I get that song?
...from Shane in Lincoln, NE, USA (answer Shane's question)

Q: Why is there a different "Restless Heart" song on the soundtrack than the one in the movie during the scene where Brantley helps out the shipping clerk in the vacant office? It makes no sense to me. If amyone know the title of that "Restless Heart" song, please let me know. Thanx.
...from Arturo in Corpus Christi, tx (answer Arturo's question)

A: "Oh Yeah" by Yello. Written by Boris Blank & Dieter Meier (thanks to Zoepermok, Belgiumadd more info

Q: What song is playing on the radio in the mail room when Brantley first meets the guy he works with? It sounds like a Bon Jovi song...
...from Taz in Arizona (answer Taz's question)

Q: What instrumental song is playing when they are at the house outside in the daytime, before they are caught later that night?? Sounds like I heard it before.
