We admit it: We love ”A Night at the Roxbury” music

Songs by artists like Amber and Ace of Base got a bad rap in the flimsy ”SNL” flick ”A Night at the Roxbury.” Just as film fans have come to worship Will Ferrell’s genius years later, so music lovers will one day understand what rayon-shirted Long Island mooks have always known: Those simple synths and rigid rhythms couldn’t be easier to sweat to. Throw in a diva belting something catchy and even the most hapless hoofer is guaranteed a little bit of dance-floor ecstasy.
