'Ping Pong Summer' Soundtrack Features The Fat Boys, Mr. Mister, New Edition, Whodini & More

Looking for a little throwback flavor to your summer movie viewing? Something a little retro, perhaps a bit lo-fi, but with its heart in the right place? Well, "Ping Pong Summer" could fit the bill. The Sundance comedy is coming to theatres today, and if the movie doesn't grab you, perhaps the soundtrack will. Comprised largely of '80s jams, "Ping Pong Summer" is mixtape ready, so grab your Nikes and a boombox and check it out. From hip-hop novelty act The Fat Boys to the earnest crooning of Mr. Mister, to the snazzy troupe New Edition to the we-barely-remember-you Mary Jane Girls, this one feels like it needs to be put on cassette.

"Ping Pong Summer" opens today is on VOD. »

If that description sounds familiar, that’s probably because Ping Pong Summer has the misfortune of coming after two similar — and better »
