Sex and the City Motion Picture Soundtrack
I LOVE, love, LOVE this cd. It has music for everyone and every mood. My favorite is "All This Beauty" by The Weepies. Sex and the City Soundtrack Review It's been years since those four fabulous Divas have come into our homes through HBO and given us something to talk about around the water cooler. May 27th was the release date for the new Sex and the City Movie Soundtrack. The fourteen tracks offer a diverse genre of music and has something for everyone. It's witty, sexy and fun just like our four favorite women: Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda. 1.) Fergie: "Labels or Love" Fergie continues her infectious upbeat vocals on the song, "Labels or Love". It depicts the storyline of seven seasons of "SATC" and describes its purpose. Carrie Bradshaw moved to New York for "Labels and Love" and Fergie captures great moments with this song's lyrics name dropping designer brands like: "Gucci, Fendi, Prada purses, purchasing them finer things ...Men they come a dime a dozen, just give me them diamond rings...I'm into a lot of bling, Cadallic, Chanel and Coach" as the song moves into a wannabe rap adventure...but how can you not help but get caught up in the song when it flirts "Love is a run way...." 2.)Jennifer Hudson: "All Dressed In Love" You may remember her from American Idol, however, this Jennifer is all grown up...maybe too grown up. This song showcases her singing ability and has you looking to hear more. The movie features Ms. Hudson as Carrie's new assistant, Louise from St. Louis. 3.) Nina Simone: "The Look of Love" From the move and groove of Fergie, the soundtrack moves to a more soft jazzy tune by Nina Simone, "The Look of Love". This Madison Park/Lenny remix will have you believing in love all over again as the music awakens something deep within you. 4.) Morningwood: "New York Girls" Relatively new and a little too "hard rock" for my taste, I found myself hanging on to this song. Maybe I could hear Samanta in the lyrics: "In your tight black jeans...And my high heeled shoes ...God, I think you're hot...I got to get with you " 5.) The Weepies: "All This Beauty" Don't let the title mislead you, this is soon to be the biggest must listen to break up song yet. With lyrics like: “We traveled all night, we drank the ocean dry and watched the sun rise...Let me assure you, friend, every day is ice cream and chocolate cake...I try to be honest, I try to be kind, and honestly leave when I know that it's time." It depicts the emotions of confusion and at the same time discovery. 6.) Kaskade: "I Like The Way" How can I not appreciate Kaskade, who moved to Salt Lake City, my hometown and then on to San Francisco, my favorite city!? The lyrics express love:"I like the way we move...From left to right...I like the way we move ...You here by my side." 7. Jem: "It's Amazing" We haven't heard from this artist in four years and her comeback couldn't be better with "It's Amazing"...the title is pretty self-explanatory! 8. The Bird & The Bee: "How Deep Is Your Love" There's no questions the lyrics are perfect, they are the same ones that came to life through the Bee Gees. That being said, sometimes you can't improve on the original. 9. India Arie: "The Heart Of The Matter" This is one of my most favorite songs on the soundtrack. It has heartfelt lyrics that make you revisit those in your life where you need to extend some forgiveness. 10: Mairi Campbell and Dave Francis: "Auld Lang Syne" It's a familiar song and Mairi Campbell's voice makes it seem suddenly new and fresh. Dave Francis plays acoustic guitar lending chords that accompany the lyrics and voice perfectly! 11: Bliss: "Kissing" A beautiful ballad that moves you to those feelings you experience beyond the first kiss. 12: Al Green with Joss Stone: "How Can you Mend a Broken Heart" This song takes you down memory lane, but really did not do much for me. 13: Run D.M.C. with Stephen Tyler and Joe Perry: "Walk this Way" I'm an 80s girl. I LOVE this song! It had me getting up and dance and struttin' my stuff...a little bit of rock with some rap...my absolute FAVORITE song on the soundtrack! 14: The pfiefer Broz. Orchestra: "Sex and the City Theme" It's the original SATC Theme song on steroids and it is HOT! I love that they beefed the theme song up and still kept the feel of SATC! There's plenty of variety in this soundtrack, something for everyone, and while I liked it on first "hear", after seeing the movie, I can tell you it really is a great soundtrack!
