Product Description

Music From The Motion Picture Philadelphia - Soundtrack - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

A drama about a gay lawyer (played in an Oscar-winning performance by Tom Hanks) living with AIDS and battling unfair dismissal from his law firm, Philadelphia (1993) was the first major Hollywood film to address the social controversies surrounding the disease. The soundtrack album offers an eclectic selection of songs, book-ended by a pair of specially written tracks by two giants of American rock: Bruce Springsteen opens with the heartfelt "Streets Of Philadelphia", while Neil Young's contributes the haunting "Philadelphia". (Springsteen has since provided music for Dead Man Walking and The Wedding Singer, while Young scored the western Dead Man). Peter Gabriel, who himself wrote powerful scores for Birdy and The Last Temptation of Christ (the album is Passion), offers "Lovetown", while ever the smooth operator, Sade asks "Please Send Me Someone To Love". Elsewhere the great diva Maria Callas performs the aria "La Mamma Morta" by Giordano. The album concludes with "Precedent" from Howard Shore, who also composed the music for director Jonathan Demme's previous film, The Silence of the Lambs. His Philadelphia score is available on a companion release, which also includes more of the opera selections that feature significantly in the movie. Hank's follow-up would be the even more successful Forrest Gump. --Gary S. Dalkin

If you have seen the film then the soundtrack CD is a must. Apart from the title track by Bruce Spingsteen being absolutely fantastic, the one in which Maria Callas sings cannot fail to bring tears to your eyes, it's worth buying the CD just for this track.

This soundtrack is one of the best mixes of music, from classical to pop. I would recommend seeing the film before buying the soundtrack because then you can appreciate the power of each song.

Great film, great soundtrack :)

Bought this second hand purely for Neil Young's track Philadelphia, for my IPOD. I could have downloaded it but for little extra money thought I may as well get the CD. The song doesn't appear on any of Neil's own albums only on his DVD 'Silver and Gold', for those who maybe interested.

The title track of this album is an absolute Springsteen classic. There's also a nice version of the Danny Whitten original, 'I Don't Want To Talk About It'.The rest of the album is..........okay. I haven't seen the film which if I had, may have lead me to give a higher rating

One of my favourite films. This soundtrack in isolation is beautiful because of the mix and variety of styles and mood. Strongly advise to watch the film and the music then takes on a whole new meaning and power, especially the Maria Callas track with your visual image of Tom Hanks! The standout for me is Neil Young on Philadelphia, one of his beautiful best, reminiscent of his early work. You will need plenty of tissues to wipe away tears though.
Beautiful soudtrack
