2 LEGENDARY VOICES ON ONE SOUNDTRACK!, 28 Dec 2010
I have been antisipating the arrival of Burlesque in cinemas and the soundtrack to be released in shops for quite some time now. So to my excitement the soundtrack was released earlier this month. As I expected, the soundtrack to the most antisipated musical/drama of 2010 was absolutely brilliant. Two of the finest voices in pop were on top notch on this cd. I have not seen the movie of as yet but I have read movie reviews and they have not said it is a bad film. The film is already nominated for 3 golden globe awards. One is for best original song for motion picture which Christina Aguilera penned for her feature film debut as an actress. A lot of critics were ready and waiting to write bad reviews on how Christina Aguilera performed but they have all said she's not a half bad actress.
You can say what you like about Cher but you got to give her credit for coming back out into movies and singing at the same time and delivering a fantastic performance. Her voice is still very strong.
Christina Aguilera sounds absolutely amazing, spectacular on the cd. The world knows she's got one of the greatest voices in the world and on this cd her voice proves just that very fact. She sings a couple of jazzy legendary Etta James numbers called "something's got a hold on me" and "tough lover". A 1940s Mae West classic song called "A Guy That Takes His Time".
This is a soundtrack that NO ONE should not miss to buy!
Cher is still a Legend and Christina Aguilera is in the making of becoming one of the legendary voices in music today!
