Three Dog Night's "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" is here, along with Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love," which is also a good song, if you could cut out about eight bars at the end. And John Lee Hooker is his own bad self with "Dimples." But the bookends of the G.I. Jane soundtrack are the interesting points. The CD opens with two tunes by Pretenders, "Goodbye" and "The Homecoming," and at the end are four songs from the daringly named Auntie Christ. This neo-punk band includes two members of X (Exene Cervenka and drummer D.J. Bonebrake) and former Rancid bassist Matt Freeman. There are also three intense instrumental rockers from Trevor Jones. Overall, a fairly good soundtrack, even if heard out of context as a group of unrelated songs.
