Clifford's Really Awful Soundtrack
Have you seen Clifford's Really Big Movie?
(I will remind you that I have Netflix and a five-year-old, so our house has been victimized by that movie multiple times.)
The movie itself isn't too bad, but the music is absolutely atrocious. I think they commissioned two songs for the movie. The music is mindless, the lyrics are insipid, and you hear them during the entire movie because they play them OVER and OVER and OVER AGAIN all through the movie. They have slow sad versions, they have fast happy versions, they have instrumental versions. It's a lot like what they did with Simon and Garfunkel's music for the Graduate, except in this case the results are horrible.
