The Five Year Engagement Soundtrack Features 25 Songs From Van Morrison, Billy Joel & Amy Winehouse

Updated on August 19, 2013

Music From Jason Segel & Emily Blunt Movie

Van Morrison could almost be considered the unofficial composer of the Five Year Engagement Soundtrack with over 7 songs in the movie including covers by The Swell Season, Audra Mae, Brett Dennen and Kevin Rowland & Dexy's Midnight Runners, some of which are included on the 5 track E.P.

With 25 songs featured in the movie, only 5 have been included on a short snippet of a soundtrack E.P. and one of those is a song from the score by composer Mike Andrews and the other a cover of Caetano Veloso's "Cucurrucucu Paloma" sung by Chris Pratt which you may recognize from the Pedro Almodovar film Talk To Her.

However, the remaining tracks are available as individual song downloads including music by Dexys Midnight Runners, Mark Ronson featuring Amy Winehouse, Billy Joel, Guster, Los Lobos, Petrojvic Blasting Company, The Steepwater Band, Aiden, Stanley Turrentine, The Postelles & Tokyo Police Club.

The music score is by Michael Andrews who also worked on Bad Teacher, Bridesmaids, She's Out of My League, Cyrus, Funny People, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Donnie Darko & Paris je t'aime.

Being touted as from the producers of Bridesmaids, The Five Year Engagement stars Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Rhys Ifans and appearances from hilarious comedian Kevin Hart, Chris Parnell (30 Rock) & Mindy Kaling (The Office). Theatrical Release Date: April 27, 2012. Blu-Ray/DVD Release Date: September 4, 2012.

In the meantime, there's a lot of buzz around Jason Segel and the gang of How I Met Your Mother as they wrap up season 8 and we all wonder if Barney and Robin are going to finally get hitched or whether Ted is going to give it one last go. The final episode airs Monday, May 13th, 2013.

Jason Segel plays the anti James Bond with yet another guy that doesn't initially get the girl punctuated by Plan B's "She Said" on the movie's promo ads. "Other songs on the movie's trailer include "Cherry Red" by Ida Marie, "It's OK" by Cee Lo Green and a hilarious, cringe-worthy engagement video montage of Tom's exes to Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire".

Playing the perpetual every man, you don't always think of Segel as the romantic lead but come to think of it, his resume is a long list of romantic comedies including The Muppets, Gulliver's Travels, Bad Teacher, Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I suppose, you could say, the bromantic lead opposite Paul Rudd in I Love You, Man.
