Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Helen Fielding's popular Bridget Jones character--a hapless British single gal who spends her days obsessing over men, cigarettes, and calories--has been criticized by more than a few feminists for her Cosmo girl conformist mentality. Perhaps this thoughtful soundtrack, which launches with Grammy-winning ass-kicker Shelby Lynne's "Killin' Kind," will make up for Bridget's self-doubt. Sheryl Crow turns in her strongest single in years, the saucy "Kiss That Girl," while Chaka Khan's classic "I'm Every Woman" is enough in itself to make any single woman's Friday night complete--no date required, just a nice pair of dancing shoes. A weepy, straightforward cover of Eric Carmen's "All by Myself" by Jamie O'Neal is more hilarious than it is emotive; ditto for Robbie Williams's karaoke-style take on Frank Sinatra's "Have You Met Miss Jones?" Ignore former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell's tragic reworking of the Weather Girls' "It's Raining Men" at all costs; it's the album's regrettable one-night stand. The Beatles may have said all you need is love, but what Bridget Jones needs is a nice soundtrack to get her through a terrifying cesspool of womanizers and fruity alcoholic drinks. --Kristy Martin

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks Jan. 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
I saw this movie, and I had to get the soundtrack. It had so many unforgettable songs on it.
Shelby Lynne - "Killin Kind": This is a pretty good song, good chorus, I like it. 3.5/5.
Sheryl Crow - "Kiss That Girl": I love Sheryl Crow, so I will be biased on this one. hehe. Its another great song by Ms. Crow. Great guitar on the chorus. 4/5
Rosey - "Love": I'm not really fond of this song. I've never heard of 'Rosey'. It's an okay song, probably the worst on the album. 1.5/5
Robbie Williams - "Have You Met Miss Jones?": Ahh, what a great song. Perfect for the movie, I love it. Robbie is amazing. 4.5/5.
Jamie O'Neal - "All By Myself": The memorable song in the beginning of the movie, one of my favorite songs of all time, I LOVE it!!! I can still see Bridget Jones's lip synching it in the beginning of the movie. 5/5
Tracy Bonham - "Just Perfect": I love this song a lot, its very up-beat and catchy, and her voice is great. Another awesome track on this album. 4/5
Shelby Lynne - "Dreamsome": This song is a slow tune, but I like it. It's very solid, and easily a repeater. 3.5/5.
Robbie Williams - "Not Of This Earth": This song is alright, but it's Robbie Williams!!! He's got a beautiful voice, and this song is a bit different from his usual stuff. But it's an average song. 3/5
Gabrielle - "Out of Reach": I LOVE this song too!! The bass line is great, and her voice is beautiful, the song is beautiful, another GREAT track on the album, its written so well!! 5/5
Dina Carol - "Someone Like You": She's got a great voice, but this song is just too slow for me. But I love the words, its written very well, which is a definite plus. 3.

I don't know why everybody's so critical of this cd. This is one of my favorite soundtrack cds. It captures the essence of the movie with a good mix of upbeat and slower songs while using a variety of musical styles. Some songs are a throwback to the classical sound of Sinatra (Robbie Williams' "Have you met Miss Jones?" comes immediately to mind) while others have a clearly more modern feel (Sheryl Crow's "Kiss the Girl" is a good example). I guess some people are peeved that certain songs from the movie aren't in the soundtrack, but that's always the case. Granted, it would've nice if "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" was included. That said, however, the track listing is available BEFORE you buy the cd, so I don't get it when people get upset that a song that ISN'T listed as a track ISN'T on the cd. The cd isn't trying to fool anyone...
Anyhow, I guess I think the cd's gotten a bum wrap because of people's own expectations, not because the cd's bad. It's a great cd. It's totally fun. I actually prefer the fast songs to the slow ones, so I like to program the cd player to play tracks 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, and 11. I can (and do) listen to these songs over and over again. Track 2 is Crow's "Kiss the Girl". This song is consistent with Crow's normal style, so if you like Sheryl Crow, you'd like this. Track 3 is "Love" by Rosie. I don't know anything about Rosie except for this track, but it's kinda funky and has a nice slow and steady beat. Track 4 is Robbie William's "Have you met Miss Jones?" Very Sinatra-esque. It's absolutely fantastic and Robbie has a great voice. Track 8 is "Not of this Earth", also by the talented Mr. Williams. Track 9 is "Out of Reach" by Gabrielle.

4.0 out of 5 stars a breath of fresh air! May 28 2001
By kemp
Format:Audio CD
i've been disappointed with many soundtracks lately because they don't include songs that are featured in the movie. this isn't a perfect collection- but come on- do we really need to have aretha's "respect" on here? i'm sure everyone's already got it in their CD collection, right?! and yes, van morrison's version of "someone like you" would have been a nice inclusion, but dina carroll's version is lovely- the girl can sing! if you're still hankering for van, buy the "french kiss" soundtrack- probably the last good soundtrack until bridget! this CD has made me a fan of both shelby lynne and rosey (she sounds like the offspring of poe & fiona apple,) and confirmed my feeling that robbie williams is the most talented unknown-in-the-united-states singer- his version of "have you met miss jones" leaves no doubt that he deserves to inherit harry connick, jr.'s throne as frank sinatra's heir-apparent. and i'm so glad they included the diana ross/marvin gaye song "stop, look, listen to your heart," (for all of us romantics who swooned over the scene in the film in which that song is played.) and what a nice touch to be able to hear bits of patrick doyle's score! the only low points are jamie o'neal's cheesy cover of eric carmen's "all by myself," and geri halliwell's rendition of "it's raining men." we always suspected she was the spice girl who couldn't sing, and this confirms it! if you loved the movie, the soundtrack is a welcome accompaniment! and one last thing- i wish there were more stills of colin firth in the CD booklet!

1.0 out of 5 stars Perfect album for people who don't like music
It tells you how bad an album is when even Shelby Lynne's contribution blows. This is a terrible half-baked soundtrack for people who like elevator music.
