Shaun Of The Dead – Island

Not only a Brit comedy that's funny, but an indie-pop soundtrack that's in good taste. Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" and "You're My Best Friend" are here to ensure nobody thinks this is XFM, but otherwise I Monster, Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster and Ash do it for the kids. Grandmaster Flash and Man Parrish do it for the kids with rhythm. Lemon Jelly do it for the parents. The Smiths and The Specials do it for us all. And Ash teaming up with Chris Martin to cover Buzzcocks' "Everybody's Happy Nowadays" is surely done with good intentions and a sense of humour.
