4.0 out of 5 stars Like listening to Armed Forces Radio all over again...
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars not so good morning Vietnam
Big fan of the film, big fan of the music and dialogue in the film and very much a big fan of Robin Williams - however put it all on one audio cd and the effect is dramatically reduced. It is a common problem that an evocative piece of music tied to a particular scene in a film does not have the same impact when it stands alone as track six on a soundtrack. Also the manic...

4.0 out of 5 stars Like listening to Armed Forces Radio all over again..., 28 July 2004
By A Customer
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 (South Cave, near Hull UK) - See all my reviews
(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (TOP 10 REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Good Morning, Vietnam (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

5.0 out of 5 stars Have you seen the film?, 23 Aug 2013

This review is from: Good Morning, Vietnam (Audio CD)
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
This review is from: Good Morning, Vietnam (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

This review is from: Good Morning, Vietnam (Audio CD)
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 .

love,love,love,love..........great price great cd...big love.....the film is also ok, but the cd reminds you of so much more then the film ever did, how great robin williams actually is as a stand up comedian and not an actor....he works so well on radio and looses his magic touch on film but i still have great love for this man and get his head space...arrived in good time and good condition at good price....wonderful
