The Soundtrack For James Brown’s Biopic Will Make You ‘Get On Up’


There's only a few weeks left until the release of the much-anticipated and star-filled James Brown biopic Get On Up. Before the movie comes out on Friday, August 1st, we get to preview music from the soulful soundtrack. Speaking of which, when was the last time you actually wanted to listen to a movie's soundtrack? Now if you're a James Brown fan, you're in luck as the album features studio and live versions of a number of Brown's most popular tracks and previously unreleased material.

The album starts off on a good note with "Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine" and travels down the right path to "Cold Sweat Pt. 1" and even a live performance of "Super Bad." "It's A Man's Man's Man's World," "Try Me" and "Please Please Please" are included on the soundtrack and show Brown's more romantic side. Rounding out the set is "Get Up Offa That Thing" to close out the musical journey. The tracks chosen for the album paint a clear picture of a legend and there's nothing but a soulful and funkdafied Brown to be heard.
