This time around they’ve included the Guess Who’s version of “American Woman,” so we’re off on the right foot. Sorry, Mr. Kravitz. This compilation of tunes from the second Austin Powers movie includes such obvious hits (yet obvious enough to be left off the first volume) as the Monkees’ childlike and charming “I’m a Believer,” Marvin Gaye’s slinky “Let’s Get It On,” and the Zombies’ eternally gasping “Time of the Season.” To carry this soundtrack farther down classic rock road, the producers have included a sprightly remix (Calderone mix) of Madonna’s “Beautiful Stranger,” Fantastic Plastic Machine’s retro-goofy and aptly named “Bachelor Pad” (in your head, you can see Mike Myers going into back spasms), and a brand new Bangles song (“Get the Girl”), which might as well have been dusted off from 1966 with its tight harmonies and chiming 12-string guitars. Time to, uh, shag. –Rob O’Connor
