The Vault: Giving “Josie” Another Scratch Behind The Ear

Apr 17th, 2007 // 13 Comments

josie2.jpgJudging by your response to yesterday’s post on the soundtrack to Josie & The Pussycats, it would seem that Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump wasn’t the only person who loved that album. While we disagree with our commenters’ pick for the soundtrack’s standout track, we’re all for leaving it up to the people to decide, so below are the two songs that were most cited in our readers’ responses yesterday:

Josie & The Pussycats – 3 Small Words [MP3, link expired]
Du Jour – Back Door Lover [MP3, link expired]

(A request: If you have an MP3 of the original Pussycats’ “Roadrunner”–it appeared on the 1970 Capitol release Josie And The Pussycats: From The Hanna-Barbera TV Showsend it along, as we lost our copy in an ill-fated college LP swap.)

    What, no love for “I Wish You Well”? Anna Waronker 4-EVA!

    “Roadrunner” is the bomb I saw the film they based the cartoon on and it’s deliciously filled with quick choruses and fuzz guitar. It kills. Hope someone gets it to you.

    ok, i’ll rip Road Runner and send it along – though Letter To Mama, which I mailed in to yr tipline yesterday, is WAY groovier.

  4. Maura Johnston

    (hey, that e-mail never arrived! want to re-send?)

    Also: The countdown to me posting ‘Calculus’ by 2Ge+her starts now.

  6. dippinkind

    that’s weird… anyway, sent road runner, resending L.T.M., let me know if they don’t show up again… and i thoroughly support the posting of 2Ge+her asap!

    I had no clue when this week started that I’d see Josie and the P-Cats here on Idolator, but topping that off with some DuJour!?

    I think I need to send some cookies or something for this!

  8. Pete the Chop

    This is why we love our Idolator.

    I thought the track from yesterday was O.K. at best, but these tracks are flat out terrible. Instead I recommend the R.Kelly/Broken Social Scene mash up that’s been floating around.

  10. Trackback

    Little did we know when we went to hear Ca$hmere’s “Vaneska’s Diner” over at the French blog Monsieur P that we’d be treated to the trippiest, coffee-addled remix of Suzanne Vega’s classic “Tom’s Diner.” It’s like being served an omelette…

    Personally, I like Spin Around and Shapeshifter. Those two tracks are awesome. I also feel like the movie will one day become a cult classic. It is so over the top. And, I actually believe it was done that way on purpose. I mean the Target ads in the plane and Ray Ban ads on the SUV were classic.

    Corky, rent the DVD and listen to the directors’ commentary, all your questions are answered there.

    @maura: Bring on the 2ge+her. Didn’t the one who played QT who was supposed to be terminally ill actually die in real life?

    I think we can all agree that the soundtrack is definately a good one and the movie isn’t perfect. It’s always weird when a soundtrack turn out better than a film.
