The flick 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore looks hilarious - but is the soundtrack laughable? Check out Kidzworld's review and get the 411 on the music behind the movie.

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!

    CaptJolee: exactly. Pink_Cool_Girl: is that all you got out of my post? because if that alone stood out to you, then obviously you do care about it. We all have different opinions and I like Grace, that's the end of it. I know you like the Clairvoyants. But you don't have to act like Grace is the worst thing in the world because she's not. At least, most of America thinks that. It's not like she's gonna try to or probably even be able to stop them from being famous and having shows of their own. You go ahead and keep rooting for them, and I'll keep rooting for Grace. Sound good?
