ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK Bridget Joness Diary (2001 UK 19-track CD featuring music from the soundtrack to the film picture sleeve. The CD shows just a few light scuffs & plays without fault)
Britain's favourite singleton, Bridget Jones, has finally made it to the big screen (and onto the cover of this 19-track soundtrack), bringing hope to lonely souls all over the country and a word of warning to smug marrieds everywhere. For what should be called "the best chick flick in the world...ever!" the soundtrack compilers have come up with a dream tracklist--from classics such as Aretha Franklin's "Respect", Jamie O'Neal's tearjerker "All By Myself" and Andy Williams' "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", to more contemporary gems from the likes of Gabrielle ("Out of Reach"), The Pretenders ("Don't Get Me Wrong") and Artful Dodger ("Woman Trouble"). Plus you get the added bonus of two unreleased Robbie Williams tracks--the big-band stylings of "Have You Met Miss Jones?" and the tender "Not of this Earth"--and, of course, the much-hyped karaoke-by-numbers of "It's Raining Men" by Geri Halliwell and her pants. There are a couple of fillers from Rosey and Alisha's Attic, but they don't distract too much from the generally choice tracks on offer. As Bridget would say, "v. good". --Helen Marquis

Enough of the bad!! There are several of my all time favourite songs on this album - who doesn't like "Too good to be true"? (And i am so glad that they picked Andy Williams version, not the Frankie Vallie one.) I can't wait to listen to it again, and I am well chuffed with it.
The only songs I would skip are Alisha's attic and geri - so thats a good batting average!!
Within the film itself, each song fitted admirably with the scene it accompanied, complimenting the emotions on display extremely well. Practically the first song to hit you upon seeing the movie is the old weepie 'All By Myself', sung by an unknown voice to me - Jamie O' Neal, whose voice is powerful and displays the raw emotion associated with the record.
Singleton favourites 'Respect' by Aretha Franklin (which was most impressive when forming the backdrop for Daniel Cleaver's humiliation in the movie) and Chaka Khan's 'I'm Every Woman' also make their way onto the soundtrack and are little masterpieces in their own right and need little description.
The brilliantly bouncy 'Don't Get Me Wrong' and the 'fantastic, bombastic, ecstatic' Woman Trouble went along with their scenes particularly well, and are bound to have you tapping your fingers within moments.
The other original songs that make the soundtrack are the classics 'Stop, Look, Listen (To Your Heart)' and 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You' (altogether now, 'I love you baby...') ensure that the originals are still the best.
Meanwhile, there are a number of impressive covers, such as Jamie O' Neal's rousing interpretation of 'All By Myself', the fantastically over-the top Geri Halliwell number 'It's Raining Men' (which accompanied the hilarious fight scene very well), Dina Carroll's soulful re-working of 'Someone Like You'.Read more ›
However, to appreciate this you have to wade through the dire cover version that is 'it's raining men' by Geri Halliwell and the song 'Kiss that girl' by Sheryl Crow, which clearly does not do this singing legend justice.
In my opinion, the most successful tune on this album sees the return of Alisha's Attic in the form of 'Pretender got my heart', which has a chilling, 'whispy' air about it whilst remaining suitably 'catchy'.
A good soundtrack in the spirit of the film- which was extremely funny and suprisingly faithful to the book! but the whole thing comes together as a cheesy friday-night-karioke-down-the-local, which frankly, like Bridget Jones, is in need of a culture infusion.
