Soundtrack Q & A
Q: What song is playing after Rafi and Dave break up for the first time, and then they see each other at the grocery store and the scene changes to them kissing and tripping over the ladder at his new place? I think some of the lyrics are "I have been wanting you for so long" but I can't find the right song when I google that. Thanks so much! :) (from Lisa in Wisconsin)
A: It's a Citizen Cope song called "Holdin' On" and NOT on the soundtrack CD! (thanks to Katrina, OHadd more info

Q: What is the title of the song when Rafi and David go to the club on Friday night? This is some kind of R&B song... (from Marris in Poland)
A: It's called "Get Money" by Junior Mafia - excellent song! (thanks to Lulu, Californiaadd more info
A: Junior Mafia sampled a song called "You Can't Turn Me Away" by Sylvia Striplin. The movie has a mix of both, but in the Junior Mafia version will not have the chorus that you hear while they are in the taxi. The movie made me want to hear the original song. (thanks to G, Dayton, OHadd more info
A: THANK YOU to the person who gave the additional answer to the Get Money question. I knew that they started the scene with the Junior Mafia song, but then went into the original that he sampled from. I've had the hardest time trying to find out who sang the original. Thanks again!

Q: I bought this soundtrack and am very disappointed that the song "I Wish You Love" on the CD is a very different musical arrangement from the one heard in the film (even though it says "from the motion picture" right on the CD). I cannot return due to state or federal laws. My question is: where can I get the ACTUAL true recording--that is--just like the one in the movie sung by Rachael Yamagata?
