5-0 out of 5 stars I`m listening to it now!
I listen to this soundtrack all the time. Everyone loves it as you can see. I mean who can`t? It`s a great soundtrack. Possibly the best? Who knows? I find it great and if you listen to the samples or buy the cd I bet you`ll love. If you don`t just click no under the helpful review thing, but I bet you anything that everyone will find this helpful. I love the movie and the songs in it so I bought the cd, well my mom did and I am so thankful for it. If you like the movie you need to listen to this. It`s what you need to do. If you like the samples or the cd you must see the movie. It`s PG-13 because of sexual reffrences, laungue, and audult themes. You should be at least 9 to see it. I saw it well when I was ten and it was a little over my head as my mom calls it. Anyway I`m not here to talk about the movie, I`m here to talk about the soundtrack that rocks. Like I said earlier this is a soundtrack you will love and listen to all the time.



Thank`s for your time,
Vicki

5-0 out of 5 stars This music has a place in my heart
I liked the movie, but I really love this soundtrack.It's what I put on when I'm tired of being an adult.The Archies, The Jackson Five, Stevie Wonder... they were all a part of my childhood... back when I took my allowance to Woolworth's every week and to buy a 45.If you remember those days fondly, you'll love this album.It's full of bubblegum favorites that still bring a smile to my face.

5-0 out of 5 stars buy it! buy it!...

3-0 out of 5 stars soundtrack doesnt measure up to movie
empire records is the best movie EVER MADE. i thought the soundtrack would be...i mean, its pretty good, dont get me wrong...but there are so many otehr songs in the movie. my friends and i can never figure out the names of other songs that were in it, so it would be helpful to have a more inclusive soundtrack. the sugarhigh film version should also be in the soundtrack--it is SO much better. overall, the soundtrack is pretty good, but it isnt nearly as good an album as empire records is a movie.

4-0 out of 5 stars Empire Records
I have to say that I totally agree that there should be a second soundtrack including the movie version of "Sugarhigh", Other than that the soundtrack is good, but could've been better.

3-0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing
This soundtrack is filled with quite a number of pulse-raising, fast-paced songs that were typical of the mid-90s. Featured on the CD are "Til I Hear it From You," by the Gin Blossoms, "A Girl Like You," by Edwyn Collins, Better Than Ezra, the Cranberries, "Crazy Life," and "Sugarhigh."

However, I was kind of disappointed with this soundtrack in one major way. Like so many other people, after seeing Empire Records, I found that the soundtrack is missing a number of songs which I wanted to be on it. Where are "Money- thats what I want" by the Flying Lizzards, Dire Straits's "Romeo and Juliet," Maxwell Caulfield's "Say no more, Mon Amour, "Video Killed the Radio Star" and "Counting Blue Cars?" Its because of these omissions that Empire Records needed another soundtrack.

Great movie- only an OK soundtrack. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Like the movie itself, the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack is filled with emotional twists; from the hardness of Garbage's "#1 Crush" and the Butthole Surfers' "Whatever" to Stina Nordenstam's endearing, whispery "Little Star" the journey is all over the map. Within the CD-enhanced grooves, however, moments of absolute brilliance flow; Des'ree's "Kissing You (Love Theme from Romeo + Juliet)" is perhaps her strongest work to date, while Radiohead's "Talk Show Host" is a track that the group treasures and performs live often. Those two tracks alone make this soundtrack worth the purchase price. --Denise Sheppard ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable
I never thought that a girl could say all that to a boy. Oh la la !

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks ever
I was eight when "Romeo and Juliet" came out (I decided to write a kids review for the hell of it)and yes, I fell in love with leo and I still am. I thought the film was brilliant, with a wonderful performance by claire danes and after seeing it, I heard there was a soundtrack. A friend bought it for me after i said how great the movie was and I instantly was hooked. Although I did not fully understand the songs then, I understand them now and it still remains one of the best soundtracks and films i have ever seen. Here is the breakdown:
*#1 Crush - Garbage (they are one of my favorite bands and this song is GREAT 5/5)
Local God - Very good song to rock to. Upbeat and fun. 4/5
Angel - Ok song, able to listen to but not as great as the others. 3/5
Pretty Piece of Flesh - Great upbeat rocking rhythme. Fun to listen to! 4/5
Dream - Pretty good song, but the lead singer tends to bug me. 3.5/5
Kissing You - wonderful love song! Made me cry in the movie! 5/5
Lovefool - Fun, perky pop song. 4/5
Young Hearts Run Free - Fun song but not amazing. 3/5
Everybody's Free- Nice Gospel song. 4/5
*To You I Bestowe - I love this song! Great guitar song with wonderful beat 5/5
*Talk Show Host - Also one of my favorite songs! 5/5
Little Star - Can't listen to this song. Awful. 1/5
*You and Me Song - Great upbeat song! Love it! 5/5

*= favorite songs even though most songs are GREAT!
Get this great collection, you won't be disappointed!
I also suggest the special edition DVD, it is great!

Editorial Review

Aside from the ubiquitous presence of a Fatboy Slim track ("Praise You") and the Verve's yesteryear anthem of choice, "Bittersweet Symphony," the cuts on this teensploitation-influenced compilation are hardly cut-out bin oatmeal. Fans restless to sample fresh Blur material will bask in the moody glow of "Coffee & TV," while other tracks offer some lesser-known but tasty dance-floor modernists such as Faithless and Kristen Barry. This is after-hours room service of taunting rock and acerbic ballads, and it highly complements the film's at-odds crew of mean-spirited teen sirens and endangered Cinderella figures, all of whom would rather watch the beautiful people than join their rat race. --Kristy Ojala ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Soundtrack
I dont have to say anything other than that this soundtrack is by far one of the best I have ever heard. I just have a question for anyone who can help me....... What is the name of the song that plays all through the movie that has no lyrics?

The best times to hear it are in chapter 20 when Annette says she doesnt trust herself with Sebastian and she walks off (then the music starts)and then at the end right after Sebastian gets hit by the taxi and Annette is kneeling beside him holding him. I have tried for a while and I have come up with nothing. If anyone can help, I would be totally in your debt. Thank you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good stuff...
I usually hate "teen movies" for it's shallow, and predictable storyline as well as bad acting. So it was a surprise that after many of my friends suggested watching the movie, I actually watched it AND enjoyed it. Somewhat of a guilty pleasure. One of the great things about the movie was without a doubt the music. And the fantastic thing about this particular soundtrack is...unlike many other soundtracks where many of the nice songs in the movie are ommitted from the album, this includes everything heard in the movie. It is recommended that you watch the movie before hearing the soundtrack, because you can actually picture the scenes when you listen to it. But nevertheless, even if you haven't watched the movie, you will enjoy the music here although it may take more than a few listenings to appreciate it. If the lack of popular artists featured in this album is making you think twice about purchasing it, stop and give them a chance. I have even bought albums from the some of the artists here that I had never heard before and I don't regret it. So, get this album, pop it in your cd player...and enjoy!

Editorial Review

Nicole Kidman playing a singing prostitute? Ewan McGregor channeling the Police? If the soundtrack to director Baz Luhrmann's freakish musical Moulin Rouge has its way, we'll all be wearing corsets and swinging from the ceiling while the former Mrs. Tom Cruise becomes our favorite new pop sensation. As daring as Luhrmann himself, the compositions test Kidman--who could have easily used a league of backup singers and studio knob-twiddlers to hide her inexperience--and she actually passes. She's no Olivia Newton-John, but she capably mixes Madonna's "Material Girl" with "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" (which is as breathy as Marilyn would've wanted it to be) and goes full throttle on any medley thrown her way. Her cover of "One Day I'll Fly Away" is especially poignant given her much-publicized personal tragedies. Ewan, though, is a real star; his giggly schoolboy brogue morphs into a fun cradle for Paul McCartney's Wings as well as U2's Bono on "Elephant Love Medley." Beck's cover of David Bowie's "Diamond Dogs" is a hit waiting to happen, while Pattie LaBelle's '70s staple "Lady Marmalade" (remade by an all-star cast of divas, Lil' Kim and Christina Aguilera among them) already is. A delicious, racy soundtrack that is equal parts cabaret, glam rock, and trip-hop, Moulin Rouge doesn't disappoint. -Kristy Martin ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!
This soundtrack has not left my cd player since I bought it. I loved the movie and I love the soudntrack. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is becuase it didn't have all the songs from the movie.

5-0 out of 5 stars No doubt one of the best soundtracks I have heard.
I love the song "Lady Marmalarde" because Christina, Pink, Mya, and Lil Kim aren't people I'd picture collaborating and was happy with the outcome.

5-0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise
I really liked this cd.I received it as a gift before I had ever seen the movie and I just loved the upbeat nature of it.I was a little tired of Lady Marmalade because of all of the airplay it received on the radio but there are plenty of other songs that compensated for that.I love all the old songs done by new artists like Valeria's version of DeBarge's 1980's hit "Rhythm of the Night" as well as a few others.One of my favorites is track 3 by Fatboy Slim : I think it's an excellent song to wake up to in the morning - it will certainly get you moving that is for sure! I also really enjoyed the vocal stylings of Ms. Kidman and Mr. McGregor.They surprised me quite a bit. "Come what May" is a beautiful song as is the French ditty "Complainte De La Butte" by Rufus Wainwright (no clue what it means but it sounds pretty - like a lullabye). Worth purchasing if you have eclectic taste in music.... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars now thats a soundtrack!
Ive accepted the facts and have come to admit that I liked Forrest Gump (the movie) and the soundtrack. The soundtrack offers the best of almost every period of modern rock. The last number, the Forrest Gump Suite, is perhaps one of the most elegant and uplifting classical pieces ever written.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT ALBUM PERIOD!!!!
This album is HUGE and great. Lots of great music by different
singers/bands. The album follows the time period thoughout
this movie starting in the 50's and 60's. You have "Sweet
Home Alabama" which is considered by many to be one if not
the greatest southern rock songs ever. I'm not a huge fan
of the band, but there is no denying the greatness of some of their work.

You have some great MoTown cuts like "I Can't Help Myself"
by The Four Tops is one of my favorite Motown classics. We
also have Frankins "Respect" that is a classic that you
just have to love. This is arguably the best soundtrack
ever put together. If you love 50-70's music there has to
be some stuff here for you. Jackson Browne classic
"Running On Empty" is another track not to miss aswell as
CCR's classic"Fortunate Son" another outstanding track. If
you were to put together a classic album spanding 4 decades
this 2 disk set would be close to being perfect.

This is a must have for lovers of classic music that has
stood the test of time. The Doors, CCR, The Four Tops, The
Byrds,Jackson Browne, Doobie Brothers, Aretha Franklin,
Pickett, Bob Dylan, Youngbloods, Elvis Presley just to
name some... Just a superb collection of music.

5-0 out of 5 stars An American Soundtrack
When "Forrest Gump" first hit theaters, it was an instant hit - thanks to brilliant acting, a heartwarming tale, and classic music to back it up. Finding the right tunes to play as a backdrop to more than three decades of American history is quite a daunting task, but those who assembled this collection of songs rose to the challenge, creating a truly American soundtrack.

The best of the best are here, with American artists giving a true representation of what the world was like in Forrest Gump's time. From the first time young Forrest saw Elvis gyrate (`Hound Dog') to his shrimping expeditions (`Sloop John B'), each song has been chosen for its sentimental value and classic addition to the film. This is a brilliant collection, with great hits from Bob Seger, the Mamas and Papas, Beach Boys, Byrds, Simon & Garfunkel, Jackson Browne, Fleetwood Mac, and so many more.

If you're looking for a great collection of American music, look no further. This two-disc set is an excellent addition to any music fan's collection. And if you're new to this era of music, it provides a great sampling of one of the greatest music generations ever.

Editorial Review

The latest Jerry Bruckheimer production focuses on five twenty-something women working their way through life at a fashionable bar in New York City. Four new LeAnn Rimes tracks highlight this collection. Though all from the pen of veteran songwriter Diane Warren, the tracks vary in style from diva pop ("Fight the Moonlight") to sentimental musings ("Please Remember"). It's only a matter of time before Rimes leaves country music completely behind for the sleek modern world of mainstream pop. The remaining songs are a hodgepodge of different eras. EMF's "Unbelievable" and Snap's "The Power" hark back to the early 1990s, while Don Henley and INXS deliver the dancebeat kick of the '80s. The firing fiddle of the Charlie Daniels Band's 1979 hit "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" seems out of context here. But then, this bar must have one odd jukebox to begin with. --Rob O'Connor ...

We knew Thomas Newman was versatile (he's created gripping soundtracks for everything from The Shawshank Redemption to Desperately Seeking Susan), but his score for American Beauty is simply gorgeous and one of his best. Filled with inventive instrumentation--tablas, bird calls, dulcimer, banjo, ukulele, detuned mandolin, and more--the score varies between highly rhythmic, world-music influenced passages ("Dead Already," "Lunch with the King") and the more subdued ("Mr. Smarty-Man," "American Beauty"). Throughout, Newman's score is inventive and a great complement to the dark comedy's numerous mood swings. The movie's other soundtrack--a collection of memorable alt-rock tracks--gave us just a sampling of this score. Here's the rest. It's short (37 minutes) but sweet. --Jason Verlinde ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent as an album, average as film score
First off, I'll say that this is an excellent soundtrack with excellent music in it.As a stand alone album, I would rate Thomas Newman's score with a 5/5 score.However, as a movie score, it falls to an average rating.Movie scores generally are supposed to have a bonding tone, theme and recognizable features to distinct the movie as it's own.It has to give the movie identity.However, American Beauty only consists of an array of almost completely unrelated cues which appear throughout, but don't connect with each other at all.The point is that if you seperated some of these cues, then listened to them, you really wouldn't be able to tell that they are from the same score, except for the few duplicates.

However, this is an excellent music soundtrack.Newman's use of percussion brings a bright feel to the music, especially when he brings out his mallet instruments.And boy, there are a lot.Although the constant use of the Vibraphone does get repetitive, it never really stops sounding good.The first track "Dead Already", brings us a compilation of guitar, marimba/vibraphone and a slow piano interjection every now and then.While it's one of the best tracks, it gets repetitive for long listening.Lunch With The King is so good yet disappointing.A comical and bright introduction is what starts it, before fading into a piano line repeated over and over with minor variations and repetition.

The best track on the album, in my opinion, is "Weirdest Home Videos".This may confuse some.The track is neither a sad or happy track, those of which usually sound the best, instead it's a dark, unpleasant, and used to describe creepy ideas or actions.After a short string-vibraphone introduction, the track plunges into it's hidden sinister section.In fact, after the brief intro, all it really is a single line of vibraphone played over and over.However, unlike Lunch With The King, the various instrumental interjections stand out, adding a texture to the vibraphone and adding a new layer each time, and a new sound.Even though this track may sound like a repetition-bomb, I can surprisingly listen to this over and over and it always gets better.

The final noticeable tracks are "Any other name" and "American Beauty".They both consist of generally the same thing, Newman's piano harmonics with strings and other textures overlapping and intricating within them.The theme he creates for the tracks does sound good, and Any Other name has a seperate piano interjection at the end.One more note should go to his tracks "Mental Boy" and "Angela Undress".They hold a nice, gentle theme, but they are used so sparingly and with no variation that they don't matter much at all.

So while Newman does make some good music and themes for each track, they never bond or come together.Instead of a common tone to identify themovie with, he instead presents us with 19 bits of random underscore.They all sound very good, but it fails as a movie score.If this was a music compilation album, I would have given it 5 stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Concept, Poor Execution
First of all, before anyone immediately rushes to deem this review "unhelpful", let me describe something.The concept of this soundtrack is amazing in it's right.There are majour highlights to this cd which excel past things which other soundtracks are trailing behind in.However, it is not a perfect cd.

The highlight of the score begins immediately and sets hopes for you to expect."Dead Already", despite the ill-sounding name, is a playful track with a great xylophone-marimba tune with an odd sound aiding it in the background.At first, when things start getting better, Newman introduces his secret weapon: the foreign percussion which he uses.I have let some of my friends hear this, both foreign and not foreign, and all have agreed on the excellent usage of this for the single opening and ending (which is generally the exact same thing with few differences) tracks.

However, this expectation that was laid down never really fufills itself.Instead, we have a drone of tracks which sound excellent for about twenty seconds...then become repetitive and warranting a skip.They all have nice tunes and occassionally a piano theme, but never really go beyond and aadd anything worthwhile.

In track 8, American Beauty, we are given a soothing, gentle piano and strings joint, with one of the most relaxing themes I've heard to date.The track drones on, but is still a great listen - had it been a bit shorter, it would have been perfect.This brought the standard up a bit, but then we still have the same repetitive music again later."Choking the Bishop", while it worked for the movie, is extremely difficult to listen to.Finally, "Any Other Name" and "Still Dead" gives us what we already heard, almost exactly to the point.

My basic point is that the concept for this soundtrack is superb, but it has poor execution.For the film, it works spectacularly, but as a sole soundtrack, it doesn't live up to what it could produce potentially.However, the few minutes of excellent music we do get to hear is enough to warrant a reccomendation from me, but I will only give it two stars in it's overall presentation.

5-0 out of 5 stars haunting and melodic
This is one of the most hauntingly beautiful soundtracks I have ever heard. It is very sparing in its instrumentation and varies between spells of repetitive minimalism and plaintively exquisite piano. Oh yes, and my three teenage kids think its great! ... Read more

Editorial Review

For those of us who grew up in the '70s, this drive-in compilation of'50s and '60s rock and doo-wop, complete with Wolfman Jack introductions, wasour introduction to this music.There are 41 jukebox hits here, and every oneof them is a classic of its time (although two tracks--"At the Hop"and "She's so Fine" are covers by the revival band Flash Cadillac &the Continental Kids). In his 1973 movie, director George Lucas used the music(and the presence of mysterious deejay Wolfman) as the AM-radio soundtrack toone night in suburban California, 1962.The idea was to capture and sustain anend-of-summer, end-of-innocence mood that's in the air throughout the picture-- not as a shortcut to establishing a period (as in Robert Zemeckis'ForrestGump). There's an awful lot of spontaneous energy in these tunes--from ChuckBerry and Buddy Holly, to the Platters and the Clovers and the Del-Vikings, tothe Crests and the Beach Boys--and also just a hint of melancholy that goes downvery nicely with a burger, shake, and fries. --Jim Emerson ...

There are many collections out there that try to sum up a decade in a disc or two, and this is the best one I've seen from the 1950's, not to mention being a soundtrack. You could not make a movie like "American Graffiti" without these songs. They were truly happy days. And while I don't dispute any of the 41 inclusions, I wonder why there's no Elvis on here, yet two from The Beach Boys and Buddy Holly? I do however like the fact that Wolfman Jack is on here in a few spots, and he really adds to the nostalgia factor. Overall it's a wonderful 90 minutes of old time rock n' roll. There's also the 20 track "Highlights from American Graffiti" if you want that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wolfman -- we miss you!
I am personally glad that the Wolfman talks over a few of these songs -- This is a soundtrack album, after all, and the Wolfman is an integral part of the movie and the era. His appearance in American Graffiti was the first time the public was able to put a face to the mysterious Wolfman Jack.

The nouveau Orange County, California, punk legacy kick-starts the soundtrack to Jake Kasdan's updated teen-hell comedy. The Offspring's newly recorded "Defy You" energetically explores their roots, and Social Distortion offer a live version of their trademark "Story of My Life." But that OC focus quickly gives way to a broad, buoyant collection of punk and hip-hop-inflected pop that includes a Green Day-ish new track by Foo Fighters ("The One") and equally hooky cuts by Cake, Lit, Bad Ronald, Quarashi, and Crazy Town. The album's emotional and musical shadings come courtesy of Pete Yorn's subdued "Lose You," the acoustic "Under the Tracks" by Creeper Lagoon, and Phantom Planet's anthemic "California," as well as a welcome pair of tracks ("Lay Down Burden," "Love and Mercy") by original SoCal Sound legend Brian Wilson. First pressings of the album also include a four-track bonus disc with songs by Zebrahead (the appropriate "O.C. Life"), Ill Kidd, the Ataris, and Riddlin' Kids. --Jerry McCulley ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Soundtrack
When I saw the movie Orange County, it immediately became one of my favorite movies. I decided to get this soundtrack, mainly because I enjoyed the songs from the movie. I got everything I expected, and more. There is not a bad song on here, and the music on this ranges from rap to pop to punk. This is like the perfect mixtape. This CD is definitely worth the money, considering I bought this more than a year ago and am still listening to it. The standout tracks include Shadow Stabbing, Love and Mercy, Everything's Cool, Lose You, and my personal favorite, Glad That It's Over.

I thought this was an awsome cd. I my self grew up in orange county, and thought the movie was hilarious, and the sound track was even better. one of my favorite songs was 12 rods "glad that its over", depicting much of my teen age years. there are many other wonderful songs on the sound track as well, such as california by Phantom Planet(also one of my favorites. there were even tracks i did not like, but were tolerable because it was such a great sound track. I highly recommend it to anyone who will listen.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sugarbomb Track
That Sugarbomb song "Hello" is excellent, and as an added bonus it is used in the same exact situation in "National Lampoon's Van Wilder."Both movies fade to the credits with this song.

Up there with the song at the end of Hackers for better fade out songs. ... Read more

The soundtrack to My Girl 2 displays a wonderful array of music from the 70's.I'm pretty young yet, but I'm really into music that people consider "oldies" but I don't think that the music on this CD should be considered oldies.my favorite is tiny dancer from elton john, followed by others like baby love and many others!This cd is fun to listen to and the movie also rox!

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this CD!
As a big fan of the film and the music within it, I knew I had to get this CD.It's a great collection of songs.My favorite, though, has to be the instrumental theme from My Girl 2.Like the theme from the original My Girl movie, it is a beautiful song.This CD also includes great songs like "Walk Away Renee", Elton John's "Tiny Dancer", "Reason to Believe", and "Baby Love."In fact, I think it contains every song from the film except "Locomotion", "All My Lovin'", and "Smile"--which is unfortunate, because this was an important song in the movie.If you're a fan of the movie or just of these songs, it's really a great collection, with both soft and upbeat rock songs from decades past. ...

Editorial Review

Julia Stiles (The Devil's Own) and Sean Patrick Thomas (CruelIntentions) star in this romantic musical drama about an interracial couple drawn past cultural barriers and united by music and dance. The soundtrack has no shortage of notable R&B and hip-hop performers. However, as the title Save the Last Dance implies, this is primarily a platform for the art of the slow dance. Rappers Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, and the late Notorious B.I.G. (featuredas part of 112's track, "Only You") represent the harder end of the spectrum (however, Snoop is paired with Q-Tip and Lucy Pearl for a smoother ride than usual). But the dramatic shuffle of the soundtrack's first single, K-Ci & Jo-Jo's "Crazy," represents the best of what's offered here. Pink's playful "You Make Me Sick" andDonnell Jones's "U Know What's Up" are among the other tuneful highlights. --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

I love this soundtrack and actually have lived to the theme song it is soo amazing....You really need to listen to this soundtrack it will change your life...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Infamous SONG NAME...
I believe the song name not featured on here is called LOVE LIKE THIS (REMIX) by Faith Evans. Even though its a very highlighted song in the movie, they cut it out of the soundtrack. There really isnt much to the remix--the original is better, and they couldnt put the original on here because it wasnt in the movie.Hope that helps! As for this soundtrack, the best song by far is K-Ci and JoJos CRAZY. The Remix of ONLY YOU by 112 is definately not as good as the original. Still a good buy though.

4-0 out of 5 stars Searching for a song
Yes the soundtrack and movie are good but the best song on the movie is not on the soundtrack.
There is a great raggee sounding song in the movie that plays when they go to the club for the first time. This song does not appear on the soundtrack.I believe it is by or features Barrington Levy.I need the name of that cut...........please. ... Read more
