    please advise what the Bob Dylan song was that played on the movie, its not appearing on the soundtrack, was quite early on in the movie. Thanks.

    I’m pretty sure Atlanta Rhythm Section & Richard Clapton both had songs featured in the film.
    The album soundtrack seems to have omitted some of the best music. Just saying.

      You are right, in fact I’ve looked everywhere for the complete music list and the Atlanta Rhythm Section /Clapton music credits are not featured on any website. SONY needs to get its act together.

  3. Shane says:

    Thanks Angela. I was wondering who sung the opening song. 🙂

    Atlanta Rhythm Section “So Into You”

  5. Julie says:

    If not for you was written by George Harrison.
    Olivia Newton John Sang it in the movie I think.

    • Tom says:

      If not for you wasn’t written by Harrison. It’s a Dylan song…
