Patti Smith, Parliament and Devo appear on Everybody Wants Some soundtrack




The sound of the ’80s on vinyl.

Out in screens now, Richard Linklater’s baseball jock comedy Everybody Wants Some will soon be available as a double LP set, Modern Vinyl reports.

Curated by the director himself, the soundtrack features classic ’80s tracks by Blondie, S.O.S. Band, The Cars, Dire Straights, Donna Summer, Patti Smith, Parliament, Devo, Sugar Hill Gang and more. Obviously it includes Van Halen’s track ‘Everyone Wants Some’. Find the tracklist and artwork below.

Of the selections, Linklater said:

The Everybody Wants Some soundtrack tries to capture the amazing diversity of what was on the table musically at that time. So many artists were at the top of their game, and it seemed like a lot of popular genres were viable. Metal and R&B were as big as ever, disco was still hanging in there (although it would be ‘dead’ within a year or so), and, thanks to the movie Urban Cowboy, country was suddenly cool in places it hadn’t been before. Even more exciting was the immediacy of punk and new wave, and the first examples of this thing you’d eventually know as hip-hop. Over the years some of this has been parodied and made to look ridiculous, but this movie is asking you to experience it as if for the first time – from those opening drum beats of ‘My Sharona’ to the utter newness of ‘Rapper’s Delight.’

The release date is set for 15 July, buy your copy here.
