For those that don’t know, Yes Man is the new comedy starring Jim Carrey.  Co-starring is none other than Zooey Deschanel, and in the movie she has a band.  I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t know exactly how prominently the band will be featured, but four songs by the fictional band are included on the soundtrack.  These four songs are what I will be reviewing.

The music itself, because it’s played for comical effect in the movie, works perfectly with Zooey’s style.  Nothing serious here.  Just cute little songs made to make you smile and snicker.

In terms of genre, aside from Sweet Ballad, which is of course a ballad, the remaining three songs are 80s style synth-pop.  Sweet Ballad is a slow, silly song about no longer being at someone’s beck and call.  Uh-huh is about an ex that refuses to acknowledge that he even knows who she is, and the little things she does to get back at him for being a jerk.  Keystar is a song about a KEYTAR, and features one fairly prominently in the song.  Yes Man is a theme song of sorts for the movie.

I ordered the physical copy from Amazon.com, but I couldn’t wait to hear the Zooey songs, so I also purchased the digital, downloadable version.  Altogether, I’m guessing I paid around thirty dollars including shipping for four songs, and I feel that I got my money’s worth.
