Soul II Soul - Get A Life

Released in 1990. One of two Top 10 hits from their album Vol. II: 1990 - A New Decade. Contains such sound advice as: “Your notions, put them in motion.”

“When we were compiling the music, I looked at the charts to see what was in the Top 40 during that era. There were a lot of songs that I didn’t want to revisit at all, like Ride On Time by Black Box, which always used to annoy the hell out of me. And there were songs that I liked at the time I never owned it, like ‘Get A Life.’ There was a 12 month period between 1989 and 1990 when Soul II Soul were huge and ubiquitous, so it was nice to showcase them in the movie and have some contrast to the indie jukebox. That said, the song that immediately follows, This Is How It Feels by The Inspiral Carpets, was another one that was perfect for this movie. A lot of British indie hits at that time have a slightly melancholic vibe to them.”

And there’s more…

The soundtrack, available to download now here or to buy physically on July 29, features 20 songs, including tracks from Saint Etienne, The Beautiful South and Teenage Fanclub. But there’s even more music that didn’t make it onto the album. Fear not, says Wright, as there’s another LP due in the not-too-distant future.

“It’ll be Steven Price’s score and also an amazing Osymyso mega-mix,” he reveals, “done in the style of an early ‘90s rave track, with dialogue mixed in. I’ve just heard it and it’s fucking awesome!”
