MOVIE MUSIC: THE DEFINITIVE PERFORMANCES, a sensational and remarkably thorough overview of 70 years of Hollywood musical moments on one double-CD set, is crammed with delectable and decade-defining songs -- from Cliff Edwards's 1929 version of "Singin' in the Rain" to Aerosmith's exuberant "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" from 1998's "Armageddon." Disc One contains glimpses of nearly every important vocal stylist of Hollywood's golden era : Al Jolson, Bing Crosby, Mae West, the Boswell Sisters, Jimmy Durante, Fred Astaire, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, and Johnny Mathis, among many others -- all captured at the peak of their performing powers. MOVIE MUSIC's second disc documents the apocalyptic changes in film soundtracks over the last 30 years, when rock and pop stars began to allocate some of their best material for inclusion on the big screen. Included on the impressive roster are Oscar winners like "Evergreen" by Barbra Streisand, Berlin's ethereal "Take My Breath Away," Bruce Springsteen's heartfelt "Streets of Philadelphia," and Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" from "Titanic." Other million-dollar moments feature Bob Dylan's elegiac "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," Will Smith's sassy "Men in Black," and "Childhood" by Michael Jackson. In all, a masterful collection.Read more ›

Doesn't Live Up to It's Title 18 April 2000
By Paul - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I bought this C.D. I really enjoyed it, but too many movie blockbuster theme songs were missing. What happened to Tara's Theme from Gone With the Wind or Over the Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz. Of course, many titles are recognizable, but there has to be at least 5 songs I hadn't heard of before,over 10 songs that weren't definitive enough for me, and 5 or 6 songs that weren't sung by the singers that you most commonly here sing them! If you want some nice music that you might recognize, get this C.D., but if you are looking for a C.D. filled with the most memorable songs ever recorded from Hollywood's biggest films... I have to tell you to keep on looking!

Good but 1 Missing 13 April 2000
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A good Compilation but the greatest film song of all time is Missing, Over the Rainbow. Now I'm not complaining The Man that got away is included but please this is one of the greatest songs of the 20th let alone the movies.

This CD has a great variety of music from over the years. I found it as I was looking for Michael Jackson's song "Childhood."
