The soundtrack includes for some reason two ultra-rare songs by ‘80’s LA rock-scene darlings Doll Congress, whose lineup included Michael Penn, older brother of actors Chris and Sean Penn. Michael had a minor hit in 1989 with the song “No Myth”, and starred as the shocked and befuddled record producer Nick in Paul Thomas Anderson’s masterpiece, Boogie Nights. Penn’s music video “Try”, directed by Anderson, appears on the Boogie Nights: Special Edition DVD.
Welcome to 18 songwriter Craig Braginsky who wrote "After All" at 16, has since written hits such as Duran Duran's Ordinary World, Avril Lavigne's I'm With You and Cheap Trick's Ghost Town, amongst others.
He has also scored over 50 movies such as "The Dark Knight". He rarely uses the name Braginsky, but can be found under that name on the IMDB and in a new interview in The Digital Dead magazine. He has also written for Meatloaf, Roger Daltrey, Demi Lovato, Keith Urban, John Waite, Steve Perry and co-wrote with David Bowie.
Craig also creates, records and scores celebrity audiobooks with such talent as Katharine Hepburn, Peter O'Toole, Heath Ledger, Michael Caine, William Shatner, Kirk Douglas, etc. Add some more trivia about the songs used in Welcome to 18
