Rock of Ages: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Various Artists
The film Rock of Ages is based on the hit Broadway musical of the same name. The show was created using classic rock n roll music of the 1980’s. The soundtrack features twenty tracks from the film performed by the film’s cast. Several actors lend their vocal talents including Paul Giamatti, Malin Akerman, Russel Brand, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin and Mary J. Blige (though she’s actually a professional singer). The film’s two main characters are portrayed by country singer Julianne Hough and Mexican singer Diego Boneta. There are only six songs that do not feature at least one of the two. The Broadway show is said to be unlike other shows in that it is more lighthearted and fun. »
