I took this CD out because of the "social relevance" LOL behind the movie these tunes are from (more about that later).
Loved Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" and that ol' chestnut by the Righteous Brothers - "You've Lost that Loving Feeling" - but little else, unfortunately.
Funny how in the movie... these songs all seemed to fall into place kinda nicely... but listened to on their own - in a CD format - this compilation of songs really grated my nerves!
Atreyu's version of "You Give Love A Bad Name" - for example, suits the movie.
Here... heard on its own... it gives hard rock/punk rock a bad name!
And "Nobody Does It Better" ...than Carly Simon singing this classic tune as the theme song for the 1977 James Bond thriller "The Spy Who Loved Me".
In this CD -the version of that song by 8mm - would knock a cat off a tin roof!
Also - I almost puked when the disc ended with Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep Us Together".
What a corny way to end what otherwise was a very sexy dark comedy!
For a real laugh though - they should have scripted Steve Tyler's "Crazy" as the last song!
That Aerosmith classic would have more aptly foretold what was really going on in the movie.
Because the saving grace in all this can be found if you read all the titles of these songs again in the order they're in (you'll find them above this review).
Now... tell me they aren't a document of what was really going on behind the scenes of Mr. & Mrs. Smith - the movie in which Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie sinfully fell in love while filming?!
