The Dumb and Dumber film soundtrack is one of the most popular soundtracks by itself. Now, this may be because it provides the greatest song in cinematic history, “Mockingbird” by Eminem. Many people have requested that I rank all of the songs from the album before, so here is my ranking of all 13 tracks on The Dumb and Dumber film soundtrack album.
13. The Lupins – Take (1994)
The Lupins were a Scottish pop-rock band that released their only album “Dumb & Dumber” in 1994. The song “Take” is the 7th track on the album and was used as background music for a scene where Lloyd first meets Mary. “Take” is a six-minute song that seems to serve no purpose in the film since Harry’s dialogue drowns it out. The song’s album version begins with Lloyd saying goodbye to his mother before heading off to Aspen; however, this is not present in the film. While the song does have an interesting beat and instrumentals, “Take” ultimately fails to stand out among the other great songs on this album.
12. Echobelly – Insomniac (1994)
“Insomniac” is the 6th track on Echobelly’s album “Everyone’s Got One.” The British rock band was active between 1992 and 2003. This song is about regretting staying up all night long, letting your anger get to you, or using alcohol or drugs. The music video of this song shows lead singer Sonya Aurora Madan walking through what seems to be an abandoned building. This is the only music video this band has released.
11. Deee-Lite – You Sexy Thing (1994)
“You Sexy Thing” was originally done in 1976 by Hot Chocolate and was covered again in 1994 by Deee-Lite. It is the 4th track on their album “World Clique.” The band’s members were Lady Miss Kier (born Kierin Magenta Kirby), Super DJ Dmitri, and Jungle DJ Towa T., The music video of this song, has them dancing around in orange leotards with very few clothes on, tassels covering their nipples.
10. The Proclaimers – Get Ready (1994)
This song is the 12th track on The Proclaimers’ album “Dumb & Dumber.” It is about how life’s an uphill battle, and we need to be ready for it.
