When we spoke with Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green back in April, he was glowing when he described to us the awesome brilliance that was the film’s theme song, created by Huey Lewis. And though he refused to give us a little preview, he did say that it would be awesome. Since then we have been waiting on the edge of our collective computer chair to hear this damn song — and today is the day.
The song, performed by Huey Lewis and the News has been launched over on the Pineapple Express Soundtrack MySpace page, along with a bunch of other cool songs from the soundtrack. They also give a listing of songs that will appear:
Huey Lewis, Cypress Hill, Peter Tosh and Public Enemy all on the same soundtrack? In a stoner comedy from David Gordon Green and Judd Apatow, starring Seth Rogen, Danny McBride and James Franco… Oh yeah, this one is going to rock out pretty hard. If you aren’t getting a little pumped for Pineapple Express, you might be in need of a doctor’s visit. Have a listen to some of the tracks off of the soundtrack over at the Pineapple Express Soundtrack MySpace Page or it’s Facebook Page.
Pineapple Express hits theaters on August 8th.
What do you think of the Huey Lewis theme song for Pineapple Express? Is it everything you wanted it to be?
