The album is good on its own, it's very relaxing, and perfectly evokes the part in the movie where Erica was doing her writing and Harry was around.. It would've been REALLY great if it had included all the contemporary songs like Paul Simon's "Learn How to Fall", the Krazytown song "Butterfly" and Maroon 5's "Sunday Morning", Earth Wind and Fire's "Sing a Song". And the song someone here was looking for is really titled "Boum Boum", sung by Charles Trenet. All the more contemporary songs weren't in the album, so disappointing! I hope they decide to release another soundtrack to the album, with all the missing songs.

The movie was great and so is the soundtrack--for the most part. I agree with the people who have posted reviews before me...the soundtrack is missing that great song from the Diane Keaton/Keanu Reeves scene in her kitchen. I hate to post such a question here, but does anyone know what the name of that song is and who sings it? It isn't "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5 as a previous poster suggested. I am sure that it wasn't Jamiroquai, as I did not see it listed in the song credits after the film, but it sounded a lot like him. If anyone can figure it out......please post!

Just saw the movie recently and loved it. Picked up the CD on a whim as I was checking out of a music store. This will indeed end up being one of my all time favorites ! The selection of the different tracks is simply perfect and the quality of each is outstanding ! Have listened to it over and over since purchasing it (less than 24 hours ago) and want to hear it again and again! It leaves you feeling just plain good !! The varioius French selections are different and intoxicating, and Jack Nicholson's version of "La Vie en Rose" on the last track is the best !

I think the song the person from CT was referring to was 'Baby,It's Cold Outside' however, I don't remember it from the movie.
I don't think this soundtrack is that bad. A tad lacking in more contemporary songs, but a good mix of the French stuff that plays while Erica (Diane Keaton) writes. Better than some movie soundtracks...but worse than others. If you want a really good soundtrack, buy Love Actually instead. The Maroon 5 song that's in this movie is also in Love Actually and therefore on the Love Actually soundtrack.

I'm not with the majority on this one. I'm just so happy they included most of the great French music and the strangely adorable Jack Nicholson rendition of "Vie en Rose" from the credits. It's so strange to me that we all saw the same movie and all came away thinking, "I loved the music!", but we were all the while loving completely different songs. Which is why I give the soundtrack 4 stars instead of 5, because I think they should have given us EVERYTHING, so we could all be happy.

I loved the soundtrack (the French songs were GREAT), however Maroon 5's "Sunday Morning" (the song playing when Keanu Reeves is eating @ the dinner table with Diane Keaton (Erica) and her sister) and Paul Simon's "Learn How To Fall" songs were not included--the songs included on there, however, were great! I will be buying the soundtrack to "Love Actually"--does anybody know if the entire song "Sunday Morning" is on there? It looks as though it's a medley or a mix...just wondering!

Yes, hi. I was just wondering if any of you happen to know the name of the song that is played very breifly when Harry is first wheeled out of the hospital and he falls to the ground. His doctor then recommends that he get a nurse and stay nearby, the camera then does a quick shot of Marin, and then Erica. The song goes somethings like..."he's feelin' she feelin' we're feelin'... and it a rap song. If you know, you're help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Love all the french songs - haven't actually seen the movie - but I was wondering what the name of the song was in the preview - were Jack Nicolson is walking in the resturant with the young tall girl - it's like a jazz song and goes I think like - "the minute you walk in the room" and jack is saying "look at me I am so debonair. I should be illegal, I', looking so good." thanks

I TOO WENT CRAZY HEARING THE TUNE FROM THE KITCHEN SCENE. I AM TRYING TO FIND IT. MY MEMORY IS THAT IT WAS BRAZILIAN GUITAR WITH
A VOICE LIKE JONATHAN BUTLER. I TRIED WATCHING THE CREDITS TO FIGURE OUT THE NAME. I SAW A TUNE BY MARCOS VALLE. I THINK THIS
MIGHT BE THE KITCHEN SONG.....BUT NOT SURE....I GOT THE ARTIST BUT NOT THE TUNE....HELP

I loved the CD and the movie, but a crucial song was missing from the CD, "Butterfly (Come my Lady)." The juxtaposition between that opening song and what actually occurs with Jack Nicholson is perfect and it sets the tone. Too bad it is not on the CD. Maybe there will be another release someday, but until then, enjoy the CD.
