Dawsons Creek ~ Songs From Dawson's Creek [Enha
This souvenir from the popular teen television drama contains several high-profile pop smashes tied to the show (Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me," Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait," and Shawn Mullins's "Shimmer"), along with a number of other tracks similar in tone and style. That is to say, if those songs' slightly wounded romanticism appeals to you, you're likely to find something else here you'll dig. --Rickey Wright

But I listened anyway. I kept the disc in there, playing it whenever I was hanging around, and a funny thing happened- I loved it. Although there are some stand-out tracks, it was the general feel of the songs, and the way they were put together to make up the album, that really encapsulated the show for me. Now, whenever I want to remember those moments from the show, or want to feel the water at the end of the dock, the grass beneath my feet, and the craziness of emotions, I put this disc in and press play.
My favorite songs became-
"London Rain"- somehow works perfectly as both a vivid reminder of the scene it was played over in the show, and a personal memory of rainy days and hopeful hearts.
"Letting Go"- this song is just divine, I can't help but sing along to its mournful little chorus.
"Stay You"- an infectious, swinging, soulful song.
"Feels Like Home"- Chantal's music just seems like Creek stuff now; it has that whispery, summery, fresh quality to it.
I have watched so many episodes of Dawson's creek, and I feel like i know the characters so well. The music they use to convey the emotions that the characters are feeling, and what we are supposed to feel is beautiful. The songs on this soundtrack are amazing, and have so many memories built into them. I recommend this cd to anyone who is thinking about buying it.
Lyrically, I believe these songs are *excellent*. They are threaded with nostalgia, hope, wonderment, a touch of pain and a corresponding sense of wanting safety, security, love, friendship. And yes, a bit of sadness as well. It's a "bittersweet" collection of songs, mellow and reassuring, like a loyal golden retriever.
Favorites are "London Rain," "Crying Ophelia," and "Stay You." Other highlights are the "Feels Like Home" song, and the "Where will you go after me?" song (PJ Olson). And of course, the three hits "Shimmer," "I Don't Wanna Wait," and "Kiss Me," are brilliant. Fans of the song "Soulfully" (which is *not* on the CD), and which I read somewhere was in the show at some point should check out catie curtis' self-titled album.
The only drawback I can think of is that there seem to be a number of other great songs which weren't included. Hopefully, more compilations are on the way. Volume 2 is slated for an October 3, 2000 release, so that's a start.
I honestly like every song on this album. Which is nice, because it means I never have to skip tracks. :)
Okay, the Heather Nova track, London Rain is mesmerising as is the Sophie B hawkin's song. Some people are sick of the Paula COle song, not ME! Every time the chorus belts out I find myself singing along and getting all tingly. When I hear this song memories from the show rush through me, especially the ever twisting Dawson/Joey romance! The Curtis Stiger song, excellent!
What I liked about this CD is that the songs mirror the shows theme perfectly, love and how it can hurt, bring joy and ultimately fill the hole everyone has in their life until it comes along.
On the CD, is a good mix of rock, love, bitter-sweet love songs. All should twinge something in each listener as most of the lyrics I can relate to from my own personal experience!
Buy this CD for easy listening or if your just a fan of the show cos it's excellent!

Dawson's Creek is a very sappy show, but the soundtrack definately has some strong points. Sixpence None The Richer's radio smash Kiss Me is a major highlight, but there are many... Read morePublished on March 21 2001
