James, would I lie to you
James: All the time!
Much of the music that plays in the club scenes was not around when the original parties took place. For example, during the party where James St. James is in the "do not feed the drug child" cage (supposedly in the 80s), the music in the background is "Frank Sinatra" by Miss Kittin and the Hacker, a song which wasn't released until 2000. It is probable that the filmmakers knew about this, but used the songs anyway, due to their "retro" feel.
