Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory,
This review is from: Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory (Audio CD)
A great musical film soundtrack. The world of Willy Wonka is unique and so is the music. I think many people felt some sort of a connection when hearing, 'Pure Imagination' -- and in recent years this particular track has become more popular with thanks to 'Glee' and Jamie Cullum doing their own versions. However, on this album you can listen to the original.
The catchy yet thought-provoking 'Oompa Loompa' song is here, as well as the rather offsetting, 'The Wondrous Boat Ride' track which has a mixture of fairly slow, uplifting music blended in with fast-paced chords adding tension and uncertainty.
Highly recommended for fans of the original film and musical songs; and the best bit is that you don't need a golden ticket to enjoy this soundtrack!
