50 First Dates Soundtrack: Noteable Notes

The first thing you are going to notice about the 50 First Dates soundtrack is that it's retro. Basically all the songs on the soundtrack are hits from the '80s. But before you go all snooze-fest on it, give it a listen, cuz you haven't heard these tunes sound like this before. Songs like Hold Me Now, Lips Like Sugar and Every Breath You Take have a totally new sound, thanks to remakes by Wayne Wonder, Seal, and UB40.

50 First Dates Soundtrack Highs

The overall feel of the album is retro-reggae. All the songs, even Hold Me Now by Wayne Wonder, have a bit of an island beat to them. Your Love, by Wyclef Jean and Eve, is full of reggae flava and it totally kicks! This is a great new way to appreciate these old-skool tunes because a lot of them would be lame sounding without the island flava. You'll also recognize some great modern voices on these '80s tunes. Jason Mraz, Gwen Stefani, and Mark McGrath are all on the album. Of course, the icing on the musical cake is a new, original song by Adam Sandler. Who doesn't love an Adam Sandler tune?

50 First Dates Soundtrack Lows

Some of these songs are hopelessly '80s, but that's not a bad thing if you dig that decade. And, admit it, you've caught yourself singing along to your parent's easy listening station more than once, haven't you?

50 First Dates Soundtrack: The Bottom Line

This group of retro songs, with a new reggae feel, are a lot of fun. Even if you're listening to 'em in the middle of a blizzard, it'll make you feel sunny. Plus, it's got the new Adam Sandler tune!
