Lucky You - Music From The Motion Picture
by Various Artists
Released: Apr 2007
Label: Columbia/Sony Music Soundtrax
This compilation's compiler must be a fan of George Jones's Cold Hard Truth, because his "Choices" made it on here, as did actress Drew Barrymore's cover of that album's title track (she sings as well as Keanu Reeves plays bass). The soundtrack kicks off with the Boss' 1992 tune "Lucky Town" (which sounds like rough-and-ragged Born To Run-era Springsteen). Kris Kristofferson's new "They Ain't Got 'Em at All" is a warm and weary welcome, as is Bob Dylan's "Huck's Tune," a harrowing, countrified narrative with awesome lyrics like "All the merry little elves can go hang themselves."
