Hot Tub Time Machine Soundtrack Song List

Sunday, August 7 by Nina St. John

The "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list is an awesome musical flashback to the '80s. It will take you back to the time when tons of hairspray was cool. Neon, everything. Big shoulder pads and brooches. And it will do it so fast, it'll give you whiplash. Putting aside the questionable fashion sense, the '80s was full of great music that you don't want to forget. The "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list is stuffed with some greats, here a few of the choice picks.

  1. "What You Need". This one of the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list was done by INXS. They were Australian rockers that started out in 1977. They achieved real success internationally in the late '80s. The death of their lead singer and front man Michael Hutchence was something from which the band never recovered.
  2. "The Safety Dance". This song encapsulated the extent of the '80s rebellion. A wonderful little techno beat, and a call to being able to dance if you want to, made this one of the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list a huge hit. It's done by Men Without Hats.
  3. "Push It". This one of the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list was performed by the first huge female rap artists, Salt-N- Peppa. Female rap artists are few and far between, but Salt-N-Peppa enjoyed quite a long shelf life.
  4. "Obsession". It wasn't named after the cologne. This one of the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list was performed by Animotion. It is the ultimate stalker song. Stalker songs were the kind of thing you could get away with in the '80s. It has a constant, catchy beat and, fortunately, the stalking lyrics are done by both the male and female performers.
  5. "Modern Love". This one of the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list was performed by the great David Bowie. This was during the time when guys had no qualms about cross dressing.
  6. "Louder Than a Bomb". This song was done by the rap force of Public Enemy. Their social rap appealed to large audiences across the spectrum. They were one of the groups that gave rap the foothold in popular consciousness. This was before the Gangsta Rap from the West Coast took hold in the '90s. In the '80s, there were some fun raps, but it was primarily all about social issues.
  7. "I Want to Know What Love Is". This one of the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list immediately gives you flashbacks, and goosebumps. Something about the wistful tune and yearning voice of Foreigner.
  8. "Jessie's Girl". Performed by Craig Robinson in the movie, but was originally done by Rick Springfield. Yes, Rick Springfield of "General Hospital". It's a great retelling of his naughty thoughts about his friends' girlfriend. It's borderline stalker because he's entirely too preoccupied with her, and what they're doing together. The truth is , however, that these things happen.
  9. "I Can't Wait". This one of the "Hot Tub Time Machine" soundtrack song list is a techno delight. It's done by Nu Shooz and is an old fashioned love song wrapped up in electronic gravy.
  10. "Careless Whisper". This was a huge hit by George Michael. Who hasn't been on the other end of the careless whisper of a good friend? All the regret and heartache of that situation is wrapped up in this song. Everybody back then also swore George Michael was still in love with Brooke Shields, and singing to her in a few of his songs.
