Product Description

Amazon.ca

Boy crazy, girl crazy, or somewhere in between, the Pittsburgh inhabitants of Showtime's eyebrow-raising Queer as Folk series all meet on middle ground: the dance floor. This relentlessly upbeat soundtrack of flavor-of-the-month dance-club anthems and campy synth-pop is confectionary fun that never loses its wits. Katty B.'s remake of the Footloose classic "Let's Hear It for the Boy" is a hoot, as is a cover of Divine's 1984 single "You Think You're a Man," which devolves into a naughty call-and-response of "boy" and "toy" that would make Madonna's early years seem tame. The good mood continues with Alcazar's frenzied "Crying at the Discotheque," which contains the intriguing couplet "The golden ties, the silver years / You wore a tie like Richard Gere." Add Kristine W.'s undeniable dance hit "Lovin' You," the Cher-like Heather Smalls's "Proud," and Mint Royale's Abba-kissed "Shake Me," and a taste of nostalgia kicks in. That said, the album knows when to quit; thankfully, there are no clichéd Gloria Gaynor or Donna Summer remixes to be found, just a batch of friendly, sexy tracks that perfectly complement the show's revved-up characters. --Kristy Martin

The music is great on this cd, The show was very well done and portrayed all types of gays. The music is the type I wished I heard when I was out at the clubs but I have it on my ipod so I listen to it when I work out to motivate me.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've got those hap-hap-happy feet! June 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a great CD, but are you looking for the song that plays in episode 122, in the scene for "Brian's private party" with the scarf, the dance version of Happy Feet by Jack Hylton & His Orchestra? Check out the CD Something For Everybody: Baz Luhrmann by Baz Luhrmann (also on Amazon), and you'll find Happy Feet (High Heels Mix by BLAM, remixed by PAUL MAC).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack From a Great TV Show April 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
The "Queer As Folk" Soundtrack is the essential for sitcom fans or dance music fans. Every track greatly reflects on the show's theme in each individual episode. They combine wonderfully in this album. The quality in the dance tracks has enough edge to keep a dance floor hopping for a long time. The variety of dance themes keep listeners interested in every note: dance pop, techno, turntable, electronica, remix, etc. They take listeners inside the episode that it originally played, especially the Babylon club scenes, whether its theme was happy, emotional, angry, or fun. They prove that even small-name artists make quality music like big-name artists do. It begins and ends with the theme song "Spunk". Between them is an unforgettable listening experience. The fun never stops, even with the sole ballad "Proud" by Heather Smalls. The remakes live up to the originals, namely "You Think You're a Man" (Divine, 1984) and the popularly played "Let's Hear It For the Boy" (Deniese Williams, 1984). The "Queer As Folk" Soundtrack is great for those looking for quality dance music. This is sure to please many show fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish it were a double disk June 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
A great CD - I keep a copy at home, a copy in the car, and MP3's at work (although if anybody from Showtime/RCAVictor reads this, translate that as "one copy I move between home, car, work"). There's so much good music from season one, I wish they'd made this a double disk set. Looks like they are for season 3 - OUTSTANDING!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT May 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
I never have been a big fan of television soundtracks, but
with "Queer As Folk" I just had to have it.
Some of the best dance music I have ever owned.
The DJ at the local bar I go to borrowed it for such a long
time, I didn't think I was ever going to get it back.
The 2nd season soundtrack is just as good too.
Can't wait for the release of the 3rd season soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Piece of Babylon and the Boys April 27 2003
By Andrea
Format:Audio CD
I am the world's largest fan of QAF and I can't get enough of it! I am always at the door with my face pressed against the window waiting for the minute when either a queer as folk dvd or cd first comes out. This CD was the best! Not only did it make you remember you're favorite scenes from Season 1, but it makes you want to watch them all over again! The only thing I wish would have been on there was "save the last dance for me." I thought that song played a huge role in season 1. But, anything Queer As Folk means something great!! I would reccomend it to anyone!

What a wonderful eclectic mix of superb dance tunes! I have recently seen the US Queer As Folk series 1 on Australian TV, and after hearing this CD, I want to watch it again! From the pure techno beat of 'Dive in the pool' to the soulful 'Proud'and sixties-inspired 'Shake me', this CD will keep you dancing for hours. This is a CD that stands on it's own merits. Whilst the ubiquitous queer anthem 'You think you're man'is here, this CD will appeal to all who love wonderfully composed and uplifting dance tunes.
