Huey Lewis Adds New Theme Song To Resume'
It has just been confirmed to movieweb that Huey Lewis will be singing the theme song to the upcoming stoner comedy Pineapple Express. Director David Gordon Green says,
"Huey Lewis just finished our theme song for us. It is called 'Pineapple Express,' cleverly. Our only input was, we told him we wanted it to sound like his 80's work that we loved so much. And we wanted to have the plot in it. And we wanted to have him say the title as many times as he could. There is a lot of alto sax. It is kind of like that 'other' Back to the Future Huey Lewis song. Not 'Power of Love' but 'Back in Time'. Yeah."
Sounds great to me. This could be a high point (pun intended) for a movie that looks pretty average so far. I'm just glad Huey is still getting work. I saw one of his concerts a few years ago and it was awesome. Pineapple Express stars Seth Rogen and James Franco, and is set to open August 8th.
