Kingpin may have given Jonathan Richman a brief cameo, but the singer-songwriter remained curiously absent from that film's alterna-rock soundtrack. Luckily, the Farrelly brothers' There's Something About Mary has Richman everywhere--he's graduated into actually becoming a plot device with his simple ditties and ubiquitous appearances. The soundtrack is no different. Tracks by the Dandy Warhols, the Push Stars, and the Lemonheads set the pop tone for this compilation, with highlights coming from Ivy, Ben Lee, and the Propellerheads. The best cuts come from Richman himself, though, with three outstanding originals: "True Love Is Not Nice," "Let Her Go into the Darkness," and the title track. Unlike the movie, there's a subtle touch to this album, and it translates to a better-than-average summer soundtrack. --Jason Verlinde

Great -- but missing one great song

"Mary had great songs alright, and this CD is a delightful collection. However, it is missing one of the best songs from the movie -- the song that plays over the end credits. It is a really wonderful song called (I think): The Way. It is by Billy Goodrum and is on a CD of his music that is available from the Love Street Bookstore (http://www.lovestreetbookstore.com/contact.htm). Everything on Billy's CD is absolutely great. I highly recommend it."
Looking for "The Way"

"Awesome soundtrack. Looking for the song at the end as the credits roll. It's called "The Way", but not sure who performs it. Gotta get this song!"
A good mix of music

"If you love this movie, you will love this soundtrack. It's every bit as wacky, and fun, but also has touching moments. Like the lovely 'Mary's Prayer' sung by Danny Wilson, and 'Margo's Waltz' sung by Lloyd Cole. Plus, with the upbeat, fun 'Build me up Buttercup' and a mix of rock/pop/alternative. make this an album for all to enjoy. If you like the 'Dumb and Dumber' soundtrack, you will be sure to like this one too."
