Title - 'Pee-Wee's Big Holiday: Motion Picture Soundtrack'
Artist - Mark Mothersbaugh

In 'Pee-wee's Big Holiday' (a Netflix Original Film), a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger inspires Pee-wee Herman to take his first-ever holiday in this epic story of friendship and destiny.

The soundtrack to this brand new feature-length movie is just as wonderful, just as eccentric, just as, well, "Pee-Wee" as you would have expected and hoped for, trust me! Chock full of 30 tracks (yup, 30!) that consist of 29 compositions from the founder and lead singer of Devo, Mark Mothersbaugh, and one brand new track from Pee-Wee Herman himself ('New York'), the soundtrack fairly bounces along in true Pee-Wee style.

1. Main Titles and Farewell 2. Pee-wee's Morning Routine 3. Welcome to Fairville 4. The Diner 5. Up in Smoke 6. The Milkshake 7. Memories Of Salt Lake City 8. The Choice 9. A Perfect Start 10. Getting Ready to Go 11. Bank Robbery 12. Pee-wee Meets Pee-wee 13. Traveling Salesman 14. Pee-wee's Dreams 15. The Farmer's Daughters 16. Night Visitors 17. Escape from the Church 18. Hairmerica 19. Operation Helicopter Head 20. Flying Car 21. Pee-wee Poppins 22. Horseplay 23. Amish Village 24. On to New York 25. Pee-wee Says Goodbye 26. New York (Pee-Wee Herman) 27. Hallucinations 28.

'Pee-wee's Big Holiday' was produced by Paul Reubens and Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Bridesmaids) and composer Mothersbaugh was also the primary composer for Pee-wee's Playhouse as well as 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip' and '21 Jump Street.'

Oh, and as for the film itself, well, if you wondered what a Pee-Wee movie would be like 30 years after his heyday, the answer is pretty much exactly the same; which is perfect. Pee-Wee still exists in this surreal 1950s alternate reality that feels as fresh today as it did in the 80's.

Pee-Wee Herman has never left the small town of Fairville, but after meeting actor Joe Manganiello (playing himself in a hilarious self aware performance), he's convinced to head East on a journey to New York for Joe's birthday party. Along the way he meets an assortment of colorful characters that help break him out of his sheltered existence.

The makeup department deserves an Emmy or Oscar (or whatever awards Netflix movies qualify for) for the job they did to Paul Reubens. The man is 63, and in real life, looks about his age. But in this film he only looks slightly older than he did back in the 80's. His voice has gotten a little bit raspier, but that's to be expected. Reubens himself is back in character, fully committed (surprisingly he hasn't been yet!), and giving it his all. As does this wonderful, deliberately wacky at times soundtrack score.
