It's a Big, Fat, Greek Hit!
on October 7, 2002
This is a fun and flavorful soundtrack for our own lives. About half Greek music, half traditional (one could say, Xeno), this CD captures the interplay of the world of the Greek family, and one woman's adventures when she steps outside of it. It sates our taste for romance, and the urge to get up and dance (Ompa)!
Here's a breakdown of the songs included on the CD:
Track 1: The opening credits and the introduction to Toula's Greek World.
Track 2: Toula's transformation and the beginning of her adventure.
Track 3: The wedding song everyone dances to in the end.
Track 4: All about Greek families.
Track 5: Auditioning 'nice Greek boys.'
Track 6: Celebrating Easter with the family.
Track 7: The two families get to know each other better.
Track 8: Roasting lamb on a spit in the front yard.
Track 9: Toula and Ian spend time together.
Track 10: Grandma's theme.
Track 11: Three generations of Greek women.
Track 12: Flirting at the travel agency.
Track 13: You wanna go to Fiji? Let's go!
Track 14: the other wedding song (nod to That Thing You Do!)
Track 15: background music at the restaurant.
Buy it, it's fun, you'll like it!
