Something's missing..., 3 July 2004
Loved the film. Loved the music so bought the CD. Still love the music but feel slightly cheated that the best song in the film 'You Don't Know Me' - the one with perhaps the best lyrics for Phil and his feelings for Rita - is just a quiet little instrumental version. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice version, but not at all the one that sweeps you up in the film with Ray Charles's great powerful voice and those wonderful lyrics. So it was disappointing - a bit like going to see the groundhog and finding out he's turned into a squirrel. But the rest of the CD is fun and will have you chuckling as you remember the film.
