"Cars" is the original soundtrack album of the animated Pixar feature film of the same name. Nine songs from the soundtrack are from popular and contemporary artists. The styles of these songs vary between pop, blues, country and rock. The remaining eleven pieces are orchestral scores composed and conducted by Randy Newman.

Reception

At the 49th Grammy Awards the soundtrack was nominated for the Best Compilation Soundtrack Album, while the John Mayer version of "Route 66" was also nominated for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance and "Our Town" won the award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. The track was also nominated for Best Original Song at the 79th Academy Awards.

Chart performance

On November 25, 2006, the soundtrack's position on the Billboard 200 shot up from #126 to #47, with a 209% sales increase of 25,000 units. This was most likely due to the holiday season and the fact that "Cars" was released on DVD. This was the first Pixar soundtrack to ever achieve Gold Certification in the United States.

There is also another song that was very popular in the movie but not listed in the soundtrack. It is called "Rolling in the Rearview" by the group Headbone. The song is playing as the "modded up" car gang is approaching "Mac" the truck while he is sleeping. The Character "DJ" is playing this song just before he switches over to a slower song (Songbird by Kenny G).
