Music from the previews

“Straight Shooter” by The Mamas and the Papas (Buy CD at Amazon.com) could be heard both in the first teaser trailer as well as the first full official trailer. The teaser also introduced us to “Bring a Little Lovin'” by Los Bravos (Buy CD at Amazon.com), while the the full theatrical trailer went a bit more melancholy with "Good Thing" by Paul Revere & The Raiders (MP3 etc. at Amazon.com) and the epic "Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show" by Neil Diamond (MP3 etc. at Amazon.com). Some other spots re-use these tunes, there's also one spot that features "Treat her right" by Roy Head MP3 at Amazon.com.
