Product Description

Bridget Jones's Diary ~ Soundtrack


Helen Fielding's popular Bridget Jones character--a hapless British single gal who spends her days obsessing over men, cigarettes, and calories--has been criticized by more than a few feminists for her Cosmo girl conformist mentality. Perhaps this thoughtful soundtrack, which launches with Grammy-winning ass-kicker Shelby Lynne's "Killin' Kind," will make up for Bridget's self-doubt. Sheryl Crow turns in her strongest single in years, the saucy "Kiss That Girl," while Chaka Khan's classic "I'm Every Woman" is enough in itself to make any single woman's Friday night complete--no date required, just a nice pair of dancing shoes. A weepy, straightforward cover of Eric Carmen's "All by Myself" by Jamie O'Neal is more hilarious than it is emotive; ditto for Robbie Williams's karaoke-style take on Frank Sinatra's "Have You Met Miss Jones?" Ignore former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell's tragic reworking of the Weather Girls' "It's Raining Men" at all costs; it's the album's regrettable one-night stand. The Beatles may have said all you need is love, but what Bridget Jones needs is a nice soundtrack to get her through a terrifying cesspool of womanizers and fruity alcoholic drinks. --Kristy Martin

I, like many others, went from the theater to the record store straightaway and picked up the soundtrack. Mostly, with the idea that the Van Morrison and Supremes' tracks would be on it. I was so disappointed when I found they were not. But once I got over the disappointment and started listening, I was amazed. First, the overall disc (and hence, the movie) has that wonderful kitschy feel that so permeates (at least) my memories of England. There's still a bit of velvet wallpaper hanging around, if you know what I mean... Then, there are the songs that are on the disc. Yeah, so Van Morrison isn't on the disc, but the fabulous Dina Carrol is, singing "Someone Like You"! After I got over being mad and listened to the girl sing, I was blown away. That song is a hit waiting to happen. She can sing and the arrangement is very jazzy, quite good actually. And then there's the second Robbie Williams' cut "Not From This Earth" that actually is played at the end of the credits that is just fabulous. If it's an original song for the film, look for it come Oscar time. I really like all of the songs, with the exception of the tepid remake of "It's Raining Men". During the movie, I thought that the lead singer was a man! The original Weather Girls' version would have been much better IMO. I really liked the Marvin Gaye/Diana Ross cut - that I've NEVER heard before. Wonder why? It's a great song. Anyhow, I've not been able to get this one out of any of players; it follows me around wherever I go. It catches the spirit of the movie and gives you a bunch of songs to sing along with. What more do you want?

I saw this movie, and I had to get the soundtrack. It had so many unforgettable songs on it.
Shelby Lynne - "Killin Kind": This is a pretty good song, good chorus, I like it. 3.5/5.
Sheryl Crow - "Kiss That Girl": I love Sheryl Crow, so I will be biased on this one. hehe. Its another great song by Ms. Crow. Great guitar on the chorus. 4/5
Rosey - "Love": I'm not really fond of this song. I've never heard of 'Rosey'. It's an okay song, probably the worst on the album. 1.5/5
Robbie Williams - "Have You Met Miss Jones?": Ahh, what a great song. Perfect for the movie, I love it. Robbie is amazing. 4.5/5.
Jamie O'Neal - "All By Myself": The memorable song in the beginning of the movie, one of my favorite songs of all time, I LOVE it!!! I can still see Bridget Jones's lip synching it in the beginning of the movie. 5/5
Tracy Bonham - "Just Perfect": I love this song a lot, its very up-beat and catchy, and her voice is great. Another awesome track on this album. 4/5
Shelby Lynne - "Dreamsome": This song is a slow tune, but I like it. It's very solid, and easily a repeater. 3.5/5.
Robbie Williams - "Not Of This Earth": This song is alright, but it's Robbie Williams!!! He's got a beautiful voice, and this song is a bit different from his usual stuff. But it's an average song. 3/5
Gabrielle - "Out of Reach": I LOVE this song too!! The bass line is great, and her voice is beautiful, the song is beautiful, another GREAT track on the album, its written so well!! 5/5
Dina Carol - "Someone Like You": She's got a great voice, but this song is just too slow for me. But I love the words, its written very well, which is a definite plus. 3.

I don't know why everybody's so critical of this cd. This is one of my favorite soundtrack cds. It captures the essence of the movie with a good mix of upbeat and slower songs while using a variety of musical styles. Some songs are a throwback to the classical sound of Sinatra (Robbie Williams' "Have you met Miss Jones?" comes immediately to mind) while others have a clearly more modern feel (Sheryl Crow's "Kiss the Girl" is a good example). I guess some people are peeved that certain songs from the movie aren't in the soundtrack, but that's always the case. Granted, it would've nice if "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" was included. That said, however, the track listing is available BEFORE you buy the cd, so I don't get it when people get upset that a song that ISN'T listed as a track ISN'T on the cd. The cd isn't trying to fool anyone...
Anyhow, I guess I think the cd's gotten a bum wrap because of people's own expectations, not because the cd's bad. It's a great cd. It's totally fun. I actually prefer the fast songs to the slow ones, so I like to program the cd player to play tracks 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, and 11. I can (and do) listen to these songs over and over again. Track 2 is Crow's "Kiss the Girl". This song is consistent with Crow's normal style, so if you like Sheryl Crow, you'd like this. Track 3 is "Love" by Rosie. I don't know anything about Rosie except for this track, but it's kinda funky and has a nice slow and steady beat. Track 4 is Robbie William's "Have you met Miss Jones?" Very Sinatra-esque. It's absolutely fantastic and Robbie has a great voice. Track 8 is "Not of this Earth", also by the talented Mr. Williams. Track 9 is "Out of Reach" by Gabrielle.
