Product Description


There's nothing fancy or pretentious about the Moonlight Mile soundtrack, just classic cuts from classy bards and rockers. Sly and the Family Stone celebrate with the combustible horn-and-harmonica barnstormer "I Want to Take You Higher," which is followed by the majestic blues, soul, and rock hybrid of the Rolling Stones' epic title cut and Elton John's ragged piano rocker. The one-two glam rock punch of T. Rex and David Bowie shrieks with wild-eyed swagger, but things mellow out as Van Morrison, Jefferson Airplane, and Bob Dylan chime in with stripped-down, emotional storytelling. Even the one modern new song, a darker Travis number waltzing with urgent longing, sounds as timeless as these legends. The only black mark is Gary Glitter's tired, overplayed "Rock and Roll (Part 2)," whose fourth-quarter touchdown brashness sticks out like a sore thumb amid the otherwise tasteful selections. Indeed, Moonlight Mile is a solid album through and through. Blessedly highlighting lesser-known but still worthy cuts from music's great innovators, the album stands alongside soundtracks like The Royal Tenenbaums as an excellent example of how to make the familiar seem fresh and new. --Annie Zaleski

3.0 out of 5 stars Final Result: 3 1/2 Stars Nov. 19 2003
By Miss P
Format:Audio CD
"Moonlight Mile" is a collection of songs that you've probably heard a million times before and could probably hear a million more. It's a solid 70's rock revue, but like the decade itself, there are some huge hits and huge misses. Having seen the movie first, I need to give this album 2 separate ratings.
If you HAVEN'T seen the Movie: 4 STARS. With songs such as the Rolling Stones' "Moonlight Mile," Elton John's more obscure "Razorface," and Bob Dylan's classic "Buckets Of Rain," how could you possibly go wrong? Add in Bowie's manic "Sweet Head," Van Morrison's achingly beautiful "I'll Be Your Lover Too" and both Sly and the Family Stone songs, and you've got a damn near perfect album. Unfortunately, the misplaced "I Hear You Knocking" and the awful hockey theme song, "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" knock one of the stars off, giving the album 4 out of 5 stars.
If you HAVE Seen the Movie: 3 STARS. There are one or two songs that were glaringly omitted from this album. Now I understand that with a compilation album, song rights play an enormous part in what makes the final cut. But to not include Van Morrison's "Sweet Thing," the song that ended the movie, is just wrong! Luckily, one Van song made it onto the album, but "Sweet Thing" would have added so much more to this cd.
Final Result: 3 1/2 stars.

The fact that "Comin' Back To Me", a beautiful and long-forgotten ballad by Marty Balin (off of Jefferson Airplane's 1967 classic Surrealistic Pillow) has surfaced in a major motion picture 35(!) years later, has a lot to say about the character arc for baby boomers in the 21st century...I mean the song has a recorder solo...they don't get any more laid back than that. Added to the Jagger blues tone poetry of "Moonlight Mile", and Sly Stone's "Everybody is a Star" (as heard in Spike Lee's glance backwards "Crooklyn"), sleepy nostalgia doesn't get any better than this. Basically anyone over 45 doesn't need a review of this music, they already know it. Anyone under 45 should be required to hear it before it's defined by a TV commercial, if it's not too late already. A wonderful collection. Who chose these selections for the film? Take a bow.

When I saw Moonlight Mile, I was chomping at the bit to get the cd, because there were such great songs in the movie, including the instrumental sets that the guys from Hot Tuna wrote with Mark Isham. It was disappointing that, given the tone of the movie, the cd didn't match it. The only instrumental set on the cd is 45 seconds of "The Telling," barely enough to even identify it on Name that Tune. I was really bummed, i have to say, although I am grateful for some of the songs they did include, which I love and can listen to over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars true mellow gold March 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
wonderful soundtrack that is on par with some of the best OST compilations to date. does anyone know when the film score will come out? also, would anyone have the title for the track that seems to be the main instrumental theme for the movie and for the "making of" vignette on the DVD. it's a beautiful flowing guitar piece and i can't find any in depth information about it on the net, so any help would be great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great songs.. but is this complete? Oct. 15 2002
By S. Yan
Format:Audio CD
This is a great soundtrack, especially for the generation that didn't grow up during this era, having only heard these songs in commercials, athletic events, etc. But I do believe the very last song of the film is excluded from this cd. It is the one that plays before the credits roll Silly me, I didn't care to pay attention to the complete credits. Does anyone know what this song is called? Email me please. Thanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, stirring music Oct. 14 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I haven't bought this soundtrack yet, but I just saw the movie. It's wonderful to hear beautiful music like this is in a movie. It definitely sets the mood of the story. My only disappointment was that Van Morrison's "Sweet Thing" was left out. This track ends the movie and is flat-out one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Why leave it out? But anyway, this soundtrack definitely sounds worth it.

Buddy- I don't have the title but it's very similar to the music on Silberling's other film-City of Angels. Perhaps it is the same composer. Hope it helps a little bit.
