"A Great Soundtrack To A Cute Film"March 6 2011
- Published on Amazon.com
Canadian filmakers made this cute, little independent movie about a little girl growing up in the Canadian Prairies in 1976. She soon discovers she is adopted and one day sees Dolly Parton on television. She invisions that since she is adopted Dolly must be her biological mother.
Dolly Parton loved the script when it was sent to her in Nashville by the film's producers and was flattered that they would use her name so prominently in the movie's story. She also allowed the producers to use many of her songs (five in all) at a nominal fee for the soundtrack. In the film Dolly even did voice-over work and refused to be paid for it. What an amazing person! Although a clip from Dolly's syndicated 1976 television series with her singing "I Will Always Love You" is seen in the film it is not part of the soundtrack.
Many Canadian artists cover these Dolly-penned songs, the most famous of which is Nelly Furtado who covers Dolly's 1975 masterpiece "The Seeker" from the "Dolly" album. The rest of the CD features many Quebec-born singers who do an amazing job with their vocals.
The following are the song list from the movie soundtrack:
1. "Through The Looking Glass" by Luc Sicard 2. "Ruby Rides" by Luc Sinard 3. "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind" (Dolly-penned) by Martha Wainwright 4. "Eeny, Meeny, Miney, Moe" by Luc Sinard 5. "Rye Whiskey Tea Suite" by Luc Sinard 6. "The Grass Is Blue" (Dolly-penned) by Coral Egan 7. "Crossing Borders by Luc Sinard 8. "The Light of a Clear Blue Morning" (Dolly-penned) by The Wailin' Jennys 9. "Bassline Time" by Luc Sinard 10. "My Dearest Ruby" by Luc Sinard 11. "The Seeker" (Dolly-penned) by Nelly Furtado 12. "Little Sparrow" (Dolly-penned) by Genevieve Toupin
