Rat Race

Rat Race

Music From the Motion Picture


It only figures that such a quirky movie would have an equally quirky soundtrack. The Baha Men donate three songs out of the ten, including the theme “Rat Race” and their infectious “Who Let the Dogs Out?.” Some of the other tracks are ’60s and ’70s hits, like “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate, “Chain Of Fools” by Aretha Franklin, and “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” from The Four Tops. Smash Mouth, Colony, and Better Than Ezra balance the CD out with new and old, and odds are, if you like the movie (or just The Baha Men and ’70s pop), then you’ll race to the store and pick this up.
