Empire Records Soundtrack

Soundtracks are awesome, especially the ones from the '90s. I listened to this one quite a bit.
Here are my favorite tunes:

Edwin Collins - A Girl Like You
This song reminds me so much of one of my best friends in 11th grade.
He and I would sing this song and reenact SNL sketches from the weekend before. Dorks.

Gin Blossoms - Til I Hear It From You
I was never really a fan of this band until this song. It's such a great pop song!

Coyote Shivers - Sugar High
I love this song from the climax of the movie. It's totally different on the soundtrack though.
Renee Zellweger just gives it a little something extra.

Rex Manning - Say No More, Mon Amour
And we can't forget Rex Manning's hit!
"You call me on my car phone with that je ne se quois, you say you need a little of my ooh la la"
Best lyrics ever.

There are more awesome '90s songs from the movie. Some of them didn't make the album though.

I actually haven't seen all of this movie. I know, aren't you shocked?!

I've always been annoyed that the Renee version was not on the soundtrack. It's so much better.

That soundtrack is one of my favorites...so many good songs! :) It always makes me think of high school (the good parts) and traveling :).

Sugar high was my faaaaaavorite song. True story, I heard "girl like you" on the radio the other day and wondered if it would be weird if I played that at my wedding. I decided it would be and that Justin should make choices about songs regarding females....ps - totes not planning a wedding, you didn't miss anything, I promise.
