Alternative, Music, Soundtrack

I had the time this weekend to go see the hilarious new movie Get Him to the Greek. It is a movie spinoff of “Aldous Snow” the crazy rockstar character that is seen in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It’s created by the same people as Superbad so its one of those must see movies that you have to know is pretty stupid going in, but you will have a good time while watching it.. so if you’re a pretentious bastard GTFO!

Anyways, the character “Aldous Snow” is in a fictional band called “Infant Sorrow”. The move features clips of many original music from this fictional band. When I went home I google’d and found that they actually made a soundtrack with full length versions of all these songs. If you’re a Flight of the Conchords fan or you’ll love this album just as much. The hilarious lyrics are hidden well behind well written melodies and orchestration with great percussion and guitar riffs. Songs like “The Clap” make me feel like I’m listening to a great song from the 80s. This one in particular isn’t as ridiculous as some of the rest. “Bangers, Beans and Mash” I think is hilarious yet is dark lyrical genius. Take a listen and maybe you will agree with me and say this is going to be one of the most under appreciated soundtrack albums this year:

Infant Sorrow- Bangers Bean and Mash

Infant Sorrow- The Clap

“African Child” was described in the movie as the worse song of all time due to its really racially offensive lyrics. However if you put that aside, I love the music and instrumentation.


  • Bob Colleran

    How was African child a racist song? I listened to it and didn’t get it. I thought it was a good song

  • teepoo

    He’s comparing his life to that of an African Child.

  • Michael Harwood

    Yeah, and the idea is so ridiculous it’s automatically ‘offensive’. But it’s not really, it’s funny and clever and a sweet song.

  • teepoo

    I didn’t say it wasn’t a good song, it was automatically “offensive” to the people in the movie and also the video was hilarious and obviously does not reflect Africa.

      it was funny to me and im black cuz i took it in the context of being comedy……

  • Latinovits

    This is good blog message, I will keep this in mind. If you add more video and pictures because it helps understanding :)

  • lizzy

    i love this soundtrack so much, its really good  music if you dont listen to the lyrics and if you do, its still really good.
