Why I love the Green Ogre

Reactions: 
Yep, Shrek... and I can't wait for Shrek the Third.

I have been looking at the soundtrack and WOW, some real oldies there that I am looking forward to see how they fit into the story.
Here is the list;
1. Eels - Royal Pain
2. The Ramones - Do You Remember Rock N Roll Radio
3. Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song
4. Fergie - Barracuda
5. Wings - Live And Let Die
6. Matt White - Best Days
7. Wolfmother - Joker And The Thief
8. Trevor Hall - Other Ways
9. Harry Chapin - Cats In The Cradle
10. Eels - Losing Streak
11. Macy Gray - What I Gotta Do
12. Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas - Thank You (falletin Me Be Mice Elf Again)
13. Maya Rudolph And Rupert Everett - Final Showdown
14. Harry Greggson - Williams - Charmings Plan
I have some of them like Led Zeppelin and Harry Chapin but the Eels are new to me...
I hope Eddie and Antonio 's duet is as good as Livin' La Vida Loca from Shrek 2, then we are in for a hoot of a song! I see some sites mention 15 tracks, Shrek 2 also had a bonus track, Holding out for a hero by Jennifer Saunders (Fairy Godmother) although I prefer the Frou Frou version with Imogen Heap doing the vocals.
Imogen is also one of my Angelic Voices (still in progress, got carried away with this one) I like... if you get a chance get the soundtracks off all the Shrek's... there is some good music on them all with a dash of the eclectic as well.

Here are the previous Shrek movie's tracklists:

While checking all things Shrek I see they are planning for Shrek 4!
"Knowledge is not a series of self-consistent theories that converges toward an ideal view; it is rather an ever increasing ocean of mutually incompatible (and perhaps even incommensurable) alternatives, each single theory, each fairy tale, each myth that is part of the collection forcing the others into greater articulation and all of them contributing, via this process of competition, to the development of our consciousness." Paul Feyerabend
