Angus: Music From The Motion Picture is a soundtrack album released alongside the eponymous film from 1995.

Overview

In 1995, Rivers Cuomo was approached by the film's producers to write a song for the film's soundtrack. He read the script and wrote the song "Wanda (You're My Only Love)" (the verses of which summarize the movie's plot). This acoustic ballad was rejected by the producers for not sounding enough like Weezer. Rivers was hurt by this rejection but eventually submitted "You Gave Your Love to Me Softly", a more up-tempo number.[1] "Wanda" was eventually released on the compilation album Alone: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo in 2007.
