Much has been said about the forthcoming Rock Of Ages film adaptation, from “Is this real” when we first heard about it to “Seriously, is this real?” when we saw the trailer, but the movie soundtrack was just unveiled, and I really can’t wrap my head around some of these.
Check out the last track on the album:
20. “Don’t Stop Believin’” – Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige
Wh..whaaa? That’s a real thing, really recorded on a real album? That people will listen to and be like “Yeah! Sing that song I’m not tired of, Tom Cruise and Russell Brand!”
I just time-traveled back to six months ago and showed that to my past self and my past self was like “WHY ARE ALL THOSE WORDS IN A ROW, that’s can’t possibly be a real thing” and I was like “Oh just you wait!” then I made out with myself and it was actually pretty decent!
Come to think of it, the first track on the album wouldn’t have seemed real either if we’d seen it last year:
1. “Paradise City” – Tom Cruise
Are we sure this isn’t just a filmed karaoke night with names of random actors slapped onto the track listing afterwards? I’ve never been more in doubt as to whether or not this is a real movie.
