The Shrek soundtrack has a lot of great songs on it. John Cale singing a Leonard Cohen song? A song by Eels about a pet monster? A Joan Jett cover? yes, yes, yes. I think the soundtrack was one of the first albums Miles and I listened to on heavy rotation. It shaped our early relationship with music together. We would dance and jump around to the songs on the soundtrack. I remember in our house on Short St we would have so much fun with music and just mess around imagining things, like wild pigs running around wild and loose in the house.
This song, “You Belong To Me,” is on the Shrek soundtrack, but not this version. This version is by the Flat Duo Jets, a great band from North Carolina that I saw live at the Nyabinghi Dance Hall
