Crazy, Stupid, Love Soundtrack: Every Song In The Movie
Crazy, Stupid, Love is a 2011 romantic comedy starring Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell, and here’s a guide to every song on its official soundtrack.
Here’s every song that appears on the official Crazy, Stupid, Love soundtrack. Crazy, Stupid, Love is a 2011 romantic comedy helmed by directing duo Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (I Love Phillip Morris) that features a script penned by the pair’s This Is Us colleague Dan Fogelman. The movie stars Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell as Jacob Palmer and Cal Weaver – a 20-something womanizer and a middle-aged family man, respectively – who become friends after Cal’s wife demands a divorce and Jacob offers to teach him the art of picking up women.
Alongside Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell, the Crazy, Stupid, Love cast features Julianne Moore as Cal’s momentarily unfaithful wife Emily, Kevin Bacon as David Lindhagen – Emily’s co-worker and the man she cheated on Cal with – and Emma Stone as a love interest of Jacob’s named Hannah, who is seemingly immune to his charms and just so happens to be Cal and Emily’s daughter. Although the movie represented a rare comedy performance from Gosling, the actor filled the role perfectly and received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for his efforts.
The Crazy, Stupid, Love soundtrack was coordinated by music supervisor George Drakoulias whose other credits include TV shows Lost or films like The Hangover trilogy. Read on for a list of every song that’s featured on the official Crazy, Stupid, Love soundtrack.
- “The Numbers Game” – Thievery Corporation
- “Almanac” – The Acorn
- “Lost in Place” – Gram Rabbit
- “The Heart’s A Lonely Hunter (feat. David Byrne)” – Thievery Corporation

The Crazy, Stupid, Love soundtrack features a mix of genres – from The Bamboos’ modern funk song “On The Sly” to Doris Troy’s classic R&B hit “Just One Look,” plus two tracks from electronic duo Thievery Corporation. There are quite a few songs in the rom-com that aren’t included on the soundtrack, however, like “This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)” by Talking Heads or John Legend’s “Save Room.” One Crazy, Stupid, Love scene sees Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone’s characters recreate the iconic Dirty Dancing lift to the tune of “(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life” by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, which is another song missing from the soundtrack.
Crazy, Stupid, Love kickstarted something of a trend for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone who have since played couples in two more movies – Ruben Fleischer’s crime drama Gangster Squad and Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-winning musical La La Land. No doubt busting out their Dirty Dancing moves in Crazy, Stupid, Love helped Gosling and Stone somewhat when it came to practicing their La La Land dance routines.
