The Boat that Rocked

The Boat that Rocked, Movie soundtrack, like the movie, takes you back to the swinging 60’s. It completely comprises of artists’ from the 60’s and way back when, with the exception of Duffy, on the first disk of the soundtrack, doing a cover of Lorraine Ellison’s “Stay With Me Baby”. It also features The Who (the same people from which the CSI theme songs came), The Kinks, The Turtles, David Bowie, The Supremes, The Easybeats, Jimi Hendrix, Cat Stevens, The Moody Blues, Dusty Springfield and Lorraine Ellison. And that’s not all of them.

It’s a two disk soundtrack with 18 songs on each and a killer selection.

The movie itself is about Radio Rock, a pirate radio station in the middle pf the ocean, and the lives of those aboard. Set in the 60’s; starring the strangely attractive Bill Nighy (Pirates Of The Caribbean, as Davy Jones and Love Actually) as Quinton, Phillip Seymore Hoffman (Doubt) as ‘The Count’, Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) as ‘Doctor’ Dave, Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill) as the racy Gavin, Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords) as Angus, and Tom Sturridge (Vanity Fair) as Carl are just some of the crew members aboard Radio Rock; and made by the creators of Love Actually (some of the cast of LA making cameo appearances in The Boat that Rocked, like Emma Thomson).

The Boat that Rocked is a great movie (and soundtrack) about sex, drugs and Rock and Roll and living life to the fullest!
