‘Songs From The Martian’ Is Largely Comprised Of Disco Classics: See The Full Tracklist
Matt Damon’s science fiction blockbuster The Martian arrives in cinemas today (October 2) and Colombia Records is releasing two soundtrack albums to tie in with the release. There’s The Original Motion Picture Score by composer Harry Gregson-Williams and Songs From The Martian — a nine-track collection featuring disco classics like Donna Summer’s “Hot Stuff” and ABBA’s “Waterloo.” Both LPs are now available digitally, with a physical release to follow on November 6.
Why the fabulous disco tunes? Well, the film’s protagonist astronaut Mark Watney is stranded on Mars with a playlist of ’70s classics left behind by Jessica Chastain’s character Commander Lewis. The poor guy didn’t have much in the way of food or supplies, but at least he had some killer tunes! Other artists featured on the soundtrack are Vicki Sue Robinson, David Bowie and Thelma Houston. See the full tracklist below.
