Best Songs from Spinal Tap's This is Spinal Tap

christangrant
This Is Spinal Tap (or simply Spinal Tap) was the soundtrack to the film This Is Spinal Tap, released in 1984. The cover art is identical to that of the fictional album Smell the Glove featured in the film.

For those who don't know Spinal Tap is a parody of Rock and Heavy Metal groups.

There are some missing tracks from the film include "All the Way Home", "Lick My Love Pump", "Jazz Odyssey", "Saucy Jack" and the band's a cappella performance of " Heartbreak Hotel ". "All the Way Home", however, did later appear on the Break Like the Wind album, while "Jazz Odyssey" and "Saucy Jack" later appeared on the Back from the Dead album. "Lick My Love Pump" and "Heartbreak Hotel" have not been officially released. Conversely, the song "America" from the soundtrack does not appear in the movie, other than in a brief scene where Nigel and David are shown attempting to record the guitar parts for the song.
