The third entry in the Cars franchise arrives this Friday and, unlike the previous two entries, it doesn’t seem to have a cover song as it’s main single on the soundtrack, at least as far as I can tell. The new album features songs from Brad Paisley and others along with a score by Pixar’s go to composer, Randy Newman. Going back to the first two movies, the first cars featured a new, sort of lifeless version of “Life is a Highway” by Rascal Flatts, which was originally by Tom Cochrane, along with songs by the aforementioned Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow and a cover of Route 66 by John Mayer while Cars 2 featured Weezer covering, appropriately, “You Might Think” by The Cars. The Rascal Flatts and Weezer songs both have official music videos and you can check them out below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
