Posted by Ron Warnick in Movies, Music.

MonstersandCritics.com has the dibs on what music will be on the upcoming "Cars" soundtrack. We've previously given a few details about who's performing on it, including score composer Randy Newman, James Taylor and Sheryl Crow. Below is the full track listing:

  • "Real Gone," Sheryl Crow
  • "Route 66," Chuck Berry
  • "Life Is a Highway," Rascal Flatts
  • "Behind the Clouds," Brad Paisley
  • "Our Town," James Taylor
  • "Sh-Boom," The Chords
  • "Route 66," John Mayer

  • "Opening Race" (score)
  • "McQueen`s Lost" (score)
  • "My Heart Would Know," Hank Williams
  • "Bessie" (score)
  • "Dirt Is Different" (score)
  • "New Road" (score)

  • "McQueen and Sally" (score)
  • "Goodbye" (score)
  • "Pre-Race Pageantry" (score)

I'm all over a soundtrack that has both Chuck Berry and Hank Williams.

The CD will be in stores June 6, three days before the movie opens wide.

Great movie – adult oriented one liners hilarious. Soundtrack sounds worth having. Will see it again as I really enjoy anything to do with cars -especially racing cars.

13. Annalisa de Vries - January 1, 2007

finally a movie with a great lesson and without all the trash! We love all the details and different personalities!

14. Kate - January 1, 2007

Kenny G? Thank you. I was going to ask the same question!

15. macattak - January 6, 2007

I would like to know what the bluegrass song is that’s playing while Doc is racing alone in the desert while McQueen watches. Any ideas?

16. ~*Shaqnus*~ - January 9, 2007

I was just trying to find out the same thing. That song isn’t listed on anything I’ve found and it’s not in the credits for the movie but I want to now what it is as well.

17. Ron - January 9, 2007

It’s part of the Randy Newman score for “Cars.” The only compositions on the soundtrack that I know of that sound like bluegrass are portions of “New Road,” “Tractor Tipping” and “McQueen and Sally.” It’s all in the “Cars soundtrack,” along with the popular tunes by Sheryl Crow, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Chuck Berry and Hank Williams.

18. HAREB - January 17, 2007


19. ~*Shaqnus*~ - January 17, 2007

This song that I want to know is not on the soundtrack. There are several songs in the movie that aren’t listed on anything.

20. jim kurz - February 1, 2007

Did you ever find out about that bluegrass song? I have been trying to find out, too. Please let me know if you do

21. Monk - February 11, 2007

whats the song that Mac (truck) falls asleep to on the road?

22. colly - February 16, 2007

hey i want to know the same thing as monk what is that song called with the saxophone that mack falls asleep to

23. Candy (not real name) - March 6, 2007

It’s Songbird by Kenny G. Btw, the song DJ is playing before that bit is called Rollin’ In The Rearview, and I think it’s by Jabu Jabu. Just thought I’d clear that up for everyone. (Those punk cars RULE! Wingo is my favourite. ^_^)

Anonymous - January 4, 2010

hey mate……really appreciate your job…i was finding the song name like hell…..once again thanks….cheers mate…



24. Angel - March 28, 2007

HELLO!!! I am desperate!!!! I need to know the song that plays after the movie is finished…it’s a low song and I think is a woman that sings it…it’s def. countryish…??!! PLEASE…if anyone knows let me know!! No I don’t have the movie…But, even if I did…I wouldnt know who is singing that. I have looked all over for it. PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you so much

25. Sioe Ling - April 1, 2007

Why?several songs in Cars aren’t listed in Cars soundtrack? Can you (Ron) please explain to me and other Cars Soundtrack fans? The song that Wingo, Boost, DJ and SnotRod action is cool. Thanks to Joe and Candy. Hmm,Rollin in the rearview by Jabu…I’m gonna to find out.. Hello..(oops..it sounds like Sally’s words).

26. Ron - April 1, 2007

I don’t why they didn’t put all of the songs on the soundtrack CD. But it’s actually common practice to not put everything from a film onto an album. Sometimes the record company holds a few back for a possible “sequel” soundtrack CD.

27. marc - May 20, 2007

does anyone know were to download the song “rollin’ in the Rear veiw” by Jabu…… the myspace page doesnt let u take it off…….would be a great help.thanks.

28. Hamp - May 23, 2007

The song Mack fell asleep to is ‘Songbird’ by Kenny G., not ‘Going Home’! Get the facts before putting them out!

29. Teresa Tucker - May 28, 2007

The movie is wonderful. I am now entrenched in Route 66 history.

30. JABU smith-freeman - June 26, 2007

Kenny G Is One Of The Greatest Saxophonests EVER!!!! Im A Huge Fan Of Smooth Jazz.

33. Dr. Shane - November 26, 2007

My children and I have watched this movie over 50 times and we still enjoy it! The one-liners, moral, and storyline are fabulous. One of my sons, a 4 yr. old, is a “cars” fanatic. We’ve memorized so many of the lines of this movie–just for fun. Then the Matchbox character cars are a blast to play around with–available at Wal-Mart and online. Pixar has done a marvelous job with many of the movies. Thanks for such great family entertainment.

34. Anonymous - January 11, 2008

does anyone know the name of the first song that they played in the movie?

35. Ron - January 12, 2008

It’s “Real Gone,” by Sheryl Crow.
