The HUNG Original Television Soundtrack will be released on 6/22/10 (today – ping!) For those not in-the-know, Hung is an HBO show about a divorced dad who, uh….he uses his assets? To, you know. Work? And he also coaches basketball!

The HUNG soundtrack

Hung premieres with its second season on June 27th, but in the meantime check out the soundtrack because it has some seriously great artists on it like The Black Keys, Grant Lee Phillips, Devendra Banhart and the Pyschedelic Furs. I really enjoyed this quote from the press release, “Every song helps paint the picture of Drecker, a man playing the game of love.” He’s just a guy looking for love, see? SEE? Pay special attention to the song by Sunny and Share Love you, because the lyrics are brilliant.

It Takes a Lot of Suffering to be Happy lyrics:

Cinderella had to work through blisters.
Cinderella endured two evil stepsisters

Rapunzel killed 10,000 hours
Up a top that locked up tower
Its not fair
Thats a lot of solitaire
A lot of her braiding hair
It gets lonely up there

Little Red Riding Hood was followed
Little Red Riding Hoods
Grandmother was swallowed

Sleeping beauty got sick
From her step Moms wicked trick
Its not nice
She ate the apple slice
The dwarfs put her on ice

Chorus:

Youve got to suffer a lot to be happy
Youve got to fight a few wars to make peace
Got to hurt and feel lost
Got to know whats the cost
When youve hit rock bottom, then you will see
It takes a lot of suffering
To be happy

Jesus Christ, the son of God, was crucified
Preaching love and tolerance
At least, the guy, he tried

But despite all of his pain
The trooper came and rose again

Its not cool
To have a Daddy so cruel
Played his kid for a fool

Chorus:

Youve got to suffer a lot to be happy
Youve got to fight a few wars to make peace
Got to hurt and feel lost
Got to know whats the cost
When youve hit rock bottom, then you will see
It takes a lot of suffering
To be happy
