I promised a part 2 to the Freaks and Geeks Soundtrack I posted about HERE. Well, three months later, here it is. Last time around I didn’t mention the great actors involved in this show. The Weir Family, around which the show is centered is perfectly cast, and both the Freaks & the Geeks are also superbly well-chosen and acted (notably by James Franco and Seth Rogen before they were huge). There are also quite a few fun cameos/smaller roles by actors throughout the run of the show. Watch for Biff from “Back to the Future” (Thomas F. Wilson) as the High School Gym Teacher/Coach, Ben Foster as the “special” kid in school in a couple episodes and both Ben Stiller and a very young Shia LaBeouf.
The songs I chose from the show are ones that remind me of specific episodes and bring out specifically what the show was about. The garage band in the show playing “Sunshine of Your Love” horribly, Nick singing “Lady” to Lindsay and it’s so painful, the H.S. Marching Band playing 25 or 6 to 4 – classic and Nick listening to “Song Is Over” is perfect.
