About the music in the movie Turbo
Turbo is out nationwide today. It’s the latest Dreamworks animated film about a snail, Turbo, who dreams of going fast. When a twist of fate sends him through a NOS tank, his dreams come true and he goes on to bigger, and faster, things. The voice casting for the film is pretty impressive. The lineup includes Ryan Reynolds (Turbo), as well as Paul Giamatti, Micheal Pena, Samuel L Jackson, Snoop Dogg and many more.
The music in the film is almost reminiscent of Fast And Furious soundtrack for kids. The hip-hop selections give it the street-racer feel. Among those are songs from V12, Pitbull and Snoop Dogg. To lighten things up a little, a few songs we’re tossed in the mix and will likely hit a chord with kids and parents alike. Songs from artists such as Run DMC, House of Pain, Tom Jones, Jackson 5 and Queen. The mix of songs goes together nicely and gives a nice tempo to the action scenes throughout the movie. When commercial songs aren’t heard, Henry Jackman’s original music fills in the gaps very nicely. The songs in Turbo were mostly safe choices, but this a kids movie so it is to be expected. All in all, a solid soundtrack for a fun family film.
The full song list from the movie is now available below. Let us know what you think about the music used in Turbo in the comments!
