So does the soundtrack supply the requisite sexy, sassy and oh-so-hip sonic flavours?Well, Pink's "Feel Good Time" sets the pace with a sinuous strut featuring a funky electro-meets-guitar groove from William Orbit that could easily be an out take from Madonna's Music (2000). And turgid neo-grunge truck drivers Nickelback find the perfect partner in crime with Kid Rock on the suitably retro-cock rock trash "Saturday Night's Alright (for Fighting)". It's not quite high octane euphoria, but if the rest of the set list is anything to go by, then the Angels are clearly hanging out in karaoke trucker bars where the jukebox spins a succession of pub crawl-friendly anthems. Overblown groin grasps such as Bon Jovi's "Livin' On a Prayer", Journey's "Any Way You Want It" and Loverboy's "Working for the Weekend" simply defy repeated listening. Are the executive producers trying to say that the Angels are a bunch of butch bitches?
Thankfully, the full-throated mood is nipped in the bud by the glam disco strut of Bowie's "Rebel Rebel", Edwyn Collins sexy signature croon "A Girl Like you" and the glorious doo-wop pop harmonies of The Beach Boys' "Surfer Girl". But with the inclusion of Andy Gibb's late 70s disco cheese ballad "I Just Wanna Be Your Everything", Donna Summer's torch-fuelled "Last Dance" and MC Hammer's ridiculous pulp rap "U Can't Touch This", the listener is ultimately left with little more than a bemused headache.
