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

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).

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.

It is a fact that music does play an important role in the storyline of Showtime's popular new series, "Queer as Folk." While most of the story revolves around the lives of several young gay men and women in Pittsburgh, the show's soundtrack captures the ongoings at the local nightclub, Babylon, perfectly. When I first picked up a copy of this soundtrack, I was hoping that the producers would release all tracks used in season one of the series. However, they didn't and that is why I am somewhat disappointed with this compilation.
Most of the songs on this album, including the show's annoying opening/closing song, are weak dance tracks that do not capture the beats and grooves of popular dance compilations such as Victor Calderone's "E=VC2" or any of John Blair's dance compilations. However, not everything on this soundtrack reeks. There are at least two tracks which I rate as catchy, danceable tracks which is why I gave this compilation four stars.
The first track, Kristine W's "Lovin' You" ranks as the best song on this soundtrack. Similar to most dance diva's, Kristine's vocals are strong, flowing, and the song's rhythm perfectly captures the essence of a club anthem. The other song, Katty B's "Let's Hear it For the Boy" is a remake of the popular 1984 song by Denise Williams that appeared on the "Footloose" soundtrack. While different from original, Katty's version is much more danceable and enjoyable nowadays due to advancements in music technology.
The only song I wish they included on this soundtrack was the really throbbing dance song that played in episode 18 of the first season, where Brian (Gale Howard) encounters an unfaithful Dr. David in a bathhouse.

What can I say about this soundtrack that hasn't been said already!?! If you are looking for upbeat, heart-thumpin music, this soundtrack is the one to have! It's a brilliant blend of techno, trip-hop and even some introspective numbers like the shoe-in-for-Grammy-nomination "Proud," the sexy and sultry "Straight to Number One," and the melancholic sad fest whoa-is-me number "Suffering," all giving this repertoire of diverse talent a meaningful even keel. My favorite dance songs here are "High School Confidential," "Summerfire," "Let's here it for the boy," "Shake me," and THE ULTRA HOT (So fitting since I live in Guam) number I listen to every morning when I run is "Start Rockin," my absolute favorite on the CD! I know so many people who are so proud of this series and are thankful to the people who have put such a great effort in keeping a show like this on the airwaves, it's definitely something to be watched! For those who have not seen this show yet, pick up a copy of this CD, read the liner notes on the inside and find a friend who gets this series weekly. (The first season will air again starting July 1st) I started watching from the beginning and I am officially hooked! With each episode that is shown, it's like I get my weekly Sunday dinner. With this CD, it's a luscious dessert to be enjoyed afterwards and all through the week! I can't wait for the DVD set of the series this fall!

I am not crazy about this CD. From the very beginning, I was stunned at the quality of music they picked on this show. Both in terms of the Time-for-Babylon! feel-good dance mixes, as well as the music that is picked to accompany the other scenes for the *mood*. But on this CD, I'd only pick out a few songs as standouts: You Think You're a Man; Straight to Number One; Proud; and Shake Me.
Sorry, but "Crying at the Discotheque" is dreadful in my opinion, and it doesn't have anything to do with the show. Start Rockin' and Summerfire give me a headache (I suppose every compilation on the planet uses filler, unfortunately), and Do Ya sounds like Euro Pop. Let's Hear it For the Boy is a bad bad remake, and Dive in the Pool is WAY too short here to have an impact (I heard an over 10-minute version, which is when the song starts getting interesting). And instead of putting the silly 'Spunk' twice, they could have featured another Greek Buck track.
The sappy "Suffering" is a perfect Angst Violins-replacement; except they used much better and edgier music in angsty situations in the show.
And where was High School Confidential even used in the show? I certainly don't remember it from anywhere.
I agree with everyone who listed a bunch of other songs that could and should have been included. Forever Young, More Effeminate than You, So Good, Filthy Mind, and even Sandstorm by Darude, as fleeting as it was, would have made more sense than Summerfire!
I thought the music on QAF-US was much better than in the UK version ('Uh La La La'?!?!?!); but from the CDs you could never tell.
