There are wonderful and enjoyable songs in the movie "Raising Helen". I love them all, and am able to dance to the album. Excellent. Simply excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, feel-good music... Oct. 19 2004
By I. Gutierrez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have to say this is a very good compilation. I saw the movie and liked it a whole lot but that wasn't so much what attracted me to this cd, it was the songs by themselves. The mix of songs is quite balanced and it's music that just makes you feel really good. It's got a little bit of something for everyone, new stuff, oldies, sweet songs, something a bit groovier, you name it...

It lacks a few more big, outstanding songs but they're all good. I guess the best tracks were, for me, "Extraordinary" by Liz Phair, "Sweetest Pain" by Haylie Duff, "Thinking Over" by Dana Glover and of course, "Whip It" by Devo, which is such an integral part of the movie. And oh yeah, Simon and Garfunkel's "At The Zoo" is one of those songs you actually enjoy getting stuck in your head all day.

A perfect cd to listen to in your car, it'll make your trips less hectic, get you singing along and continue smiling long after you've reached your destinations. Wherever you choose to listen to it, I have to tell you, it's just really good. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars old meets new Nov. 6 2005
By M. Sinclair - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was so touched by this film, which looked flaky from the trailers, so I waited for it to come from BB video online... I almost forgot how much I love John Hiatt, but "Feels Like Rain" anchors this cd, and being 53, it was a treat to hear my wonderful Mr. Bowie, some newer pop artists, although for my taste, there is a bit too much fluff from a couple of them, and on the other hand, I was introduced to a couple of artists who I really dug."Whip It", here-to-fore viewed by my memory as seeing me dance around with my first-born and making her laugh out loud, so it had only a sort of gratuitous fun flavor from the 80's- for the first time had touching meaning for me- it is central to the movie, and used in the most creative way I can imagine. (I called her at college and asked her if she will dance with us to it again next time she's home, but...)On the whole, unless you have seen this very wonderful movie- this cd might not be for you, but after taking the movie in (you just gotta love Garry Marshall's unusual and always fresh approach)- this entire cast was fabulous,the cd holds more meaning and was a very nice surprise, over all.

4.0 out of 5 stars An OK soundtrack but why did they put destiny?!.... Feb. 9 2005
By Serizap - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I love zero 7,but i'm tired of destiny,i already have it on two CD!now three!and i wanna have their albums so,four!...Anyway it's a really good soundtrack filled with good songs sung by really great artists.And it's a real soundtrack because almost all the songs heard on the movie are here.I think it's fun to start with a cheesy song like whip it which i like very much...

Well,if you loved the movie like i did,you won't be disappointed,they chosed the best.One of my favorite is feels like rain by john hiatt,it's a really smooth song with jazzy tones,i love his voice...
