VARIOUS ARTISTS -- Mr. Wrong (Hollywood Records)

Scattered among the tracks on the CD, you'll find such insipid covers as Amy Grant doing "The Things We Do For Love"; the Joe Tex classic, "I Gotcha", destroyed by Sophie B. Hawkins; and Joan Jett and The Blackhearts' awful version of "Love Stinks". The worst part about the Joan Jett track is that it isn't even in the movie! Why put it on the CD? If that wasn't enough for you, you can put on Chris Issak's rendition of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". If you make it all the way through this one, you'll be crying.

The only redeeming quality of the CD is the inclusion of Queen's "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". Not even Queen can save this one though. Check out the movie, but skip the soundtrack.
