While doing an interview with director David Gordon Green about his upcoming drama Snow Angels, I convinced him to sing a few bars of Huey Lewis' theme song to Green's upcoming summer comedy Pineapple Express. You can hear a sampling of the song for the first time ever in the below audio:
The chorus lyrics are: "We got trouble, we got to get out of here. I've got you, you've got me. We are as high as we can be. That's all right. How did we get into this mess? Pineapple Express!"
About the song, David says:
"Huey Lewis just finished our theme song for us. It is called Pineapple Express, cleverly. Our only input was, we told him we wanted it to sound like his 80s work that we loved so much. And we wanted to have the plot in it. And we wanted to have him say the title as many times as he could. There is a lot of alto sax. It is kind of like that "other" "Back to the Future" Huey Lewis song. Not "Power of Love" but "Back in Time". Yeah."
Pineapple Express opens August 8th, 2008.
