A Look at the Music of Cars 2!

Just short of a full track list, Disney/Pixar announced all of the songs that will appear on Cars 2: The Original Soundtrack next month.

Contemporary rock band Weezer, country star Brad Paisley, British singer/songwriter Robbie Williams, French star Benabar and J-pop super group Perfume all contribute at least one track to the eclectic album. The latter two performers bring a distinctly international flavor to the soundtrack with lyrics in French and Japanese, respectively. Here’s a preview:

Song: "You Might Think"
Performer(s): Weezer
Fun Facts: Cover of The Cars’ song.

Song: "Collision of Worlds"
Performer(s): Robbie Williams, Brad Paisley

Song: "Nobody’s Fool"

    They forgot Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers. And every other tweenybopper music source to include with what they have so far.

    I thought that it would be an Italian song for the Porto Corsa scene: a France song, a Japanese song, but not an Italian song???

    Dang Pixar, you guys know some good music from Japan. That “Polyrhythm” was a catchy song on this TV commercial. It’s about recycling. You know how to pick ‘em.

    weezer is a teeny bopper band, as is perfume and robbie williams. Brad Paisly is a country yodler.

    Weezer is a teeny bopper band? Since when? 1995 when they first came out? 16 years ago! Kids born then are teeny boppers now.

    How closed minded and out of touch are you?
