what was the song or group that paris hilton was dancing to in the movie the cat in the hat with mike myers in the underground club



Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. The song was "Hang On" by Smash Mouth.

i just want to make sure the song or group is it techno/ club or dance and do you know if there is a alblum that i can buy

I know it's on the CD "Get the Picure." You can check itunes for a download of just that song if you don't want to buy the rest of the CD.


Smash Mouth is a pop rock group. Some of their other songs you may remember are "Walkin' on the Sun" and "All Star." They've also done lots of songs made popular by other artists including "Why Can't We Br Friends?" "I'm a Believer" etc.

You are mistaken. The song is "Hang On" by Smash Box in the Cat in the Hat.

what kind of answer is this that is not my question i had ask you just take a look at the movie if you can but if not thats o.k. i still appreciate your help but the answer is wrong

The answer is right. I've looked at the movie, as well as the dozens of copies of that bit on the internet.

my friend said at the studio i am at right now it is background music

I am going to opt out since you won't believe the truth and I don't have time to argue with you.


I believe the the song you are looking for is a song by Smash Mouth ("Getting Better") using David Newman's score in Cat In The Hat. Paris Hilton was a Female Club Goer in the movie. The original song was done by the Beatles and remixed for the movie: This is the Beatles version:

Hello, and welcome to Just Answer.

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I have been an Entertainment Expert on Just Answer for 6 years. It's my pleasure to help you today.

The music you are referring to in that club scene with Mike Meyers and Paris Hilton is definitely not "Getting Better". The music is definitely a 'generic' techno beat, most likely produced for that very short scene, and does not appear by name, in the soundtrack listing. If you enjoy that type of music, I can provide you with many places online to download it.

The song "Hang On" by Smash Mouth, is included in the movie, but definitely is not the music in the club scene you are asking about.

If you would like to view that particular scene in the underground club, it occurs at approximately 55 minutes into the movie. I own the movie and just watched the scene to listen to the music. It's is generic techno/club/dance music.

Smash Mouth did do a music video of the song "Hang On" including snippets of scenes from the movie "The Cat In The Hat", and Mike Meyers and Paris Hilton's club scene was included for about 2 seconds of it. You can view it here:

You can view most of the club scene with Paris Hilton and Mike Meyers online, at this link, at 4 minutes and 43 seconds:

Since you are interested in the type of music from that club scene, and would like to download or purchase it, please let me know if you would like me to supply you with links to download that type of techno/dance music, and I will be happy to provide them for you.

Hi my name is Mike and I have been an avid electronic music fan for many years. I would like to assist you in finding some of the most popular electronic artists as well as providing additional resources so you can find more music to find your preferred style to listen to.

Trance music, along with things like house and soulful house are some hugely popular musical genres that are played in clubs all over the world. It is even so popular that Top40 music is stacked and played along as mixed music with a trance beat.

DJ Tiesto is perhaps one of the most popular DJs on the planet. His album called "In my memory" from 2001 is highly regarded as possibly one of the best albums by him. His music is a trance style music but can get into almost a soulful house sound that has the light vocals alot of people enjoy. His music is very appealing to people interested in completely separate musical genres simply because it is very upbeat and non-distracting to the casual listener. Simply googling "tiesto" will bring a huge search result.

Markus Schulz - is a personal favorite DJ of mine. Very long mellow beats, tons of light vocals the song found HERE is called "First Time" this is a song that is similar to some of his albums that provide a tremendous rhythm without being overbearing from an auditory perspective for new listener.

Armin Van Buuren is consistently also ranked in the top 5 some of his music. His style is slightly different and has a "harder" more industrial feel to it. This is not to be confused with the industrial *genre* of music which tends to have a "darker" sound to it. Van Buurens tracks have a definite synth note to them but are usually very easy to listen to as well. Mirage is a pretty popular track that is a good idea of some of his music

If you have a larger interest in learning and listening, the Trance Addict forums(you can use google to find this) are a huge set of forums dedicated to electronica and dance music. The forum is organized by area(for concerts and shows) as well as genre, artist,

DJ Tiesto - youtube channel with a huge playlist

Markus Schulz - title track list on youtube

Armin Van Buuren - Van Buuren's Youtube channel

Hopefully you enjoy these - I am quite familiar with many artist's so if these are something you end up liking I can provide a lot more artists of similar quality as well as similar listening.
