The music from this motion picture consists of period tunes heard in the Bronx and elsewhere in the 1950s and '60s, starting, naturally, with homeboys Dion & the Belmonts
and running through the Jimi Hendrix Experience
. That's quite a stretch, of course, but it is bridged by interludes given over to re-creations of the period sound by Cool Change
. And from the Cleftones
' "Little Girl of Mine" to the Rascals
' "A Beautiful Morning," the selections are such classics it's hard to argue with them. Still, without the movie's images to hold them together, the collection seems virtually random.
