The Big Chill

Personally, I do love this soundtrack because it has all the classic hits but apparently my movie alter disagrees with the actual quality of movie. Mr. Richard has said more than once he feels like he’s living in the movie High Fidelity. It’s actually been forever since I’ve seen the movie as I am more a TV girl and don’t tend to re-watch movies. In the movie, Dick and Barry are talking about “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” (not on any of the actual soundtracks) when it’s immediately disqualified from their Top 10 Songs About Death because of its use in the movie.

The Big Chill is a 1983 American comedy-drama film directed by Lawrence Kasdan. It is about a group of baby boomer college friends who reunite after fifteen years due to the suicide of a friend. Kevin Costner was cast as the dead character Alex, but all scenes showing his face were cut.

Ten of the songs from the film were released on the soundtrack album, with four additional songs made available on the CD. The remainder of the film’s songs (aside from the Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”) were released in 1984 on a second soundtrack album.
