It’s no surprise that movie soundtracks are schizophrenic affairs, and it’s for a variety of reasons. Often, since the songs often serve a specific purpose in the movie, when they’re gathered on a separate soundtrack they either sound entirely too familiar or too obscure. Soundtracks can also serve as a dumping ground for new and previously unreleased material that has nothing to do with the film itself. The soundtrack to The In-Laws — Andrew Fleming’s 2003 remake of the 1979 Arthur Hiller cult comedy classic, this time with Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks taking the lead roles over for Peter Falk and Alan Arkin — manages to cover all three bases […] but the highlights are two Paul McCartney rarities. One is an alternate “Live and Let Die,” which is basically the same apart from a slightly different vocal, but the real highlight is the album’s opener, “A Love for You,” a number dating from the 1971 Ram sessions — featuring Paul & Linda, Denny Laine, Hugh McCracken, and Denny Seiwell — that has been cleaned up a little bit and released here for the first time. It’s a delight, a light pop number propelled on acoustics and colored with fuzz guitars and vocal harmonies, with an unpredictable arrangement that builds to a percussion-heavy finish. If it had been released, it would not have been hit material, but it’s the kind of thing pop fanatics love and it’s reason enough for them to pick up this record.
