"I must have too much time on my hands... Anyways, I was greatly disappointed that the "soundtrack" didn't include even one of my favorite songs from the movie, so I've done my own research and here is a list of the songs that were in the movie and should be on the soundtrack. Most of these songs can be found on albums available on Amazon. Monkey Time - Major Lance Ooh Aah - Jakki O Stagger Lee - Lloyd Price It Will Stand - The Showmen Easier Said Than Done - The Essex Baby Work Out - Jackie Wilson Since I Don't Have You - Skyliners Sixty-Minute Man - Billy Ward
I hope this helps!"
Shag The Movie - A Missed Opportunity For A Great Soundtrack

"Shag The Movie soundtrack is a missed opportunity. The tracks on the audio CD are good to be sure. But it is what is not on the CD that is a major disappointment for anyone who has seen this movie.The movie opens up with the Shirelles' classic "Mama Said" (left off this compilation). And down at Myrtle Beach at the dance hall where all the action takes place, three great renditions of rock/R&B classics are not on this "soundtrack " CD! Those songs are "Stagger Lee", "Sixty Minute Man", and "Stay". Each of these classics are featured songs in the movie. Moreover, the movie reaches its climax at the Shag Dance Contest with all that great hoofing done to "Stagger Lee". Leaving this track off the CD would be like leaving "Unchained Melody" by the Righteaous Brothers off the Ghost CD soundtrack!It is a shame that what would could have been a great CD is not. Anyone who has seen this movie has to wonder how these, and other tracks that were a major part of the film score, were not included."
Where is the real soundtrack?

"When I first saw the movie SHAG, I fell in love with the 60's music that was played and made an immense effort to go to the store and purchase the soundtrack. Much to my dismay, the soundtrack lacked the songs I had come to buy. Such songs as "Mama Said", and "60 minute man" failed to be on the soundtrack. With these few songs, I think many more copies would be sold. How could such a brilliantly composed movie fail to include its masterpieces on the soundtrack? I don't know!"
I found the Jakki O Song

"If you're like me, and looked forever for the Ooh Aah song, well look no more! I found it on "Art Laboe's 60 Killer Oldies" and on Jakki O "In the mood for love." Both are available on Amazon! YEA!"
