CD AAndM, CDMID163 19 Track

Amazon.co.uk

After several flops, Good Morning, Vietnam was the movie that turned Robin Williams from the popular alien of TV's Mork and Mindy into a cinema superstar. Applying a comic touch to the Vietnam conflict in the tradition of M*A*S*H and its treatment of the Korean War, the movie capitalised on Williams's fast-talking improvisation and mimicry by casting him as a madcap DJ. In a novel twist which predates Reservoir Dogs soundtrack dialogue extracts by five years, the album is presented as an Adrian Cronauer radio show, mixing seven clips of Williams's brilliant monologues with a dozen classic tracks which collectively define the era. From "Nowhere To Run" by Martha Reeves & the Vandellas, through Beach Boys' "The Warmth Of The Sun" and "I Get Around", "Sugar And Spice" by The Searchers and "Game Of Love" by Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders, 60s pop was rarely better than this. Topping-up the veritable jukebox of essential tracks is "I Got You (I Feel Good)" by James Brown and "Baby Please Don't Go" by Them, while rounding off the set is Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World". One of the best pop soundtracks since American Graffiti, this anthology wouldn't be bettered until Forest Gump. --Gary S. Dalkin

Format:Audio CD
The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of "Good Morning, Vietnam" is exactly what you would expect it to be, a combination of Robin William's maniacal spiels as DJ Adrian Cronauer and some great music from the Sixties. The result is something not too far removed from what it would have been like to listen to Armed Forces Radio in the 'Nam way back when. The only thing missing are the announcements for staff sergeant so-and-so to check in with his command post A.S.A.P. The songs included here are not exactly what you would classify as anti-war songs, although certainly there is something ironic about "Nowhere to Run," "Liar, Liar" and "What a Wonderful World" in the context of the Vietnam War. There is also a nice mixture of big names, such as James Brown and the Beach Boys, with lesser known artists, like The Searchers, The Rivieras and Them. This actually gives this album a nice sense of authenticity because these are not wall to wall classic hits like we had with the "Forrest Gump" soundtrack. Of course you are going to get tired of William's comedy long before you want to stop listening to the music. The only question is when, but since we can program CDs to skip what we want, this is not going to be a major consideration. However, for all you Drew Carey fans, if you do not already have it, here are The Vogues doing "Five O'Clock World."

5.0 out of 5 stars Track Listing and The Artists who Performed Them 10 Aug 2012
By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is not a review as such but Amazon although have listed the tracks they have not said which artist perform them.
Also the tracks are interspaced with Robin Williams as Adrian Cronauer who gives the introductions from the film.

You can actually programme his intros out and just listen to the music if you like (or even just listen to Robin's Intros!!)

There is no overlap on the tracks (imagine Radio One with the DJs having laryngitis!)

Here are the tracks with Williams as well
1. Adrian Cronauer - Robin Williams
2. Nowhere To Run - The Vandellas
3. I Get Around - Beach Boys
4. Game Of Love - Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders
5. Adrian Cronauer - Robin Williams
6. Sugar And Spice - Searchers
7. Adrian Cronauer - Robin Williams
8. Liar, Liar - Castaways
9. The Warmth Of The Sun - Beach Boys
10. Adrian Cronauer - Robin Williams
11. I Got You (I Feel Good) - James Brown
12. Adrian Cronauer - Robin Williams
13. Baby Please Don't Go - Them
14. Adrian Cronauer - Robin Williams
15. Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead - Marvelettes
16. Five O'clock World - Vogues
17. California Sun - Rivieras
18. Adrian Cronauer - Robin Williams
19. What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you have seen the film and love it, crank the volume right up and sit back. This CD has the Robin Williams voice overs from the film which I really love and play at max volume. The original sound tracks are brilliant and my brainwashed kids enjoy listening to it, or else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 18 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
A great CD and one of my favourite soundtracks, a nice blend of some great 60's music and some funny clips from Robin Williams. The film itself isn't that great but I always enjoyed this CD. A shame from reading other reviews that the audio clips from Williams seem to have been removed on more recent releases; my copy is quite old now. I hope that is rectified at some point.

5.0 out of 5 stars There are lots of good tracks on this CD 14 Sep 2014
By Mrs B
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the Soundtrack to the film. the Music is mainly US Hits and from Circa 1965. There are lots of good tracks on this CD...Including Beach Boys Them James Brown and some of Adrian Cronauer's humour which is very irreverent.
If you have the film or want to buy it then you must get this CD as its good driving music. Recommend .
