What is it with time travel movies and music? Michael J Fox introduced the ’50s to rock’n’roll in Back to the Future. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter Wild Stallyns-ed it up in the Bill and Ted movies. And who can forget the “Dr Zaius Rap” from Planet of the Apes? No, wait, that was actually on The Simpsons. Regardless, the point is made! Music and time travel films go together like a horse and carriage. Or like Craig Robinson from The Office covering “Jessie’s Girl,” which is what he does on the soundtrack to the new comedy Hot Tub Time Machine.
We’ve got our hands on an exclusive preview of Robinson singing the Rick Springfield pop-rock classic—and you can hear it below. Give it a listen and tell us what you think.
