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

It didn't take me long to think, 'Cruel Intentions', of course.
So I went to my KaZaa, booted it up, and looked up the movie. The first song that jumped out at me was 'Comin' Up From Behind' by Marcy Playground - I love the song 'Sex and Candy', so I downloaded it right away.
It was an amazing, fun, sexy song, just what I wanted, and to this day one of my favorite. Out of 10, I'd give it a 20. I love that song. So I immediately bought the CD and, wow. The entire album just blew me away.
1. Every Me Every You by Placebo
This song really, honestly does set the mood for the whole CD, and gawd, is it fun to sing along to. One of the standout tracks on the album, and that is saying something. I honestly put this on repeat and listened to it for an hour straight when I first heard it.
2. Praise You - Fatboy Slim
Oh, I remembered this song. Hard not to. Whether not not you can listen to it depends upon whether or not you suffocate under techno and whether you're in the mood to be happy for not. I think it's a lot of fun, but sometimes I just can't listen to it. Some people have told me it's their favorite off of the album, so I'll leave you to your own judgement on this one.
3. Coffee and TV - Blur
Lovely. Simply lovely. This is the type of song you can just stick in your CD player and relax to. It's not as upbeat as some others, but it really doesn't have to be.
4. Bedroom Dancing - Day One
The lyrics to this song are SO AWESOME. Oh wow. When I first heard it, they were so cool, I was laughing out of sheer awe.Read more ›
...three years later and I FiNaLlY got me the soundtrack, and I didn't even have to listen to it before I bought it, because it was crystal clear it's sooooooooo great!!!!! Obviously it's very Brit-band inspired, although it also has so much in the 14 tracks it's more than a soundtrack, it's a masterpiece for itself. My fave song of course is Bittersweet Symphony, and then there is so many other magnificent songs like Every You, Every Me, Secrety (by the wonderful Skunk Anansie), This Love, Trip On Luv (now here's a song which completely sums up tripping on luv...) and Ordinary Life...I'll spare you of describing how much I luv every song and why etc etc It's THE soundtrack to have and it ur gonna buy any one soundtrack, my suggestion is defintely it...
It's definitely one of the best CDs I've ever bought, it sums up the movie 100% and it even has a lil bit of everything for everyone...the songs are excellent mood-feelers and the entire album is a thrill ride all the way, whether you're high or low or whatever, you'll completely trip on the CD in a great way :-) :-) :-)
And that's exactly how this soundtrack is. After encouragement from frequently watching this movie, I decided to check out the soundtrack.
Another great decision.
Here's a song-by-song review:
1) Placebo- Every You Every Me *Amazing* song. There's such a meaning to it, and it fits hand-in-hand with the movie. In the movie, this song is played when Sebastion, the main character, is driving to see his psychiatrist. If you really listen to the lyrics carefully, you'll see that they describe Sebastion and his entire way of life.
2) Fat Boy Slim- Praise You This is the type of song that you'd expect to listen to on the way to the beach. It's an all-around feel good song. It's perky, and more than that meaningful. If you have a significant other, you can definitely appreciate this song- "We've come a long, long way together- through the hard times and the blue. I have to celebrate you, baby- I have to praise you like I should."This song was another brilliant pick for the soundtrack. In the movie, this song is played when Sebastion and Annette Hargrove (Sebastion's bet) make their first intimate connection.
3) Blur- Coffee and TV This is one of those songs. You can't understand why the heck it's on the CD.Read more ›
This was an awesome soundtrack; one of my favorites ever. And rarely is a soundtrack to a movie ever as good as this one, or even half as good...but I think this is one of the best EVER.
And it's so ecclectic, anyone can dig it. There's stuff for rock fans, pop fans, and all the mixes inbetween.
note: Aimee Mann is always a welcome treat to a sdtk, so if you loved her song on this one, check out Magnolia (she's got 8 tracks on that one), she's truly a musical genuis, and is an overlooked talent.
