This is a fun and eclectic collection of tracks, and includes all the songs you would expect to see from the film, except one obviously glaring exception, the Crowded House cover, 'Don't Dream It's Over', by Six Pence None The Richer. I don't know why they included 'Kiss Me' instead, when the other song goes better with the movie. But I suppose it's too hard to make the perfect soundtrack, and we should be grateful for what we get, ha ha!
In spite of that little omission, the soundtrack is almost as entertaining a listen, as the movie was to watch. It's full of great pop songs, in a mix of styles to cover most of the pop spectrum, from a great classic cover like 'L.O.V.E.' to a rockin' 'Who Do You Love', to the Country-flavored theme songs of the main characters, -- and two of the standout songs, -- Keith Urban's 'Somebody Like You' and the wonderful Chantal Kreviazuk's heartbreaking 'Feels Like Home'. Along with her heartfelt second track, 'Weight of the World', these songs alone are worth buying the cd for. Overall, this is a purchase that won't disappoint fans of the movie.
