Both opening and closing credit tracks are included. Superman by Lazlo Bane is a totally humbling banjo filled tune, which opens the show in style. With the lyrics "You've crossed the finish line, won the race but lost you mind, was it worth it after all?" this song is realistic one at that.
The whole album is an excellent mixture of genres. Each has tune has happily left its stamp on the CD, including a surprisingly mellow track - 'Fresh Feeling' by the Eels.
All the songs have captured the insanity and moral ridden theme of the show. Like Scrubs itself the soundtrack surprises you with a live version of Hallelujah by John Cale which I believe was in the Christmas episode of the comedy, and a respectable tune by The Shins which certainly reminds me of a 60's track thrown into the 21st Century.
Now I was going to complain that the CD doesn't include A Little Respect by Erasure that was played throughout an entire episode, BUT! When I play my CD on my computer the Ending credits is listed as 'A Little Respect'. Confused? So are the CDDB's! But despite this little glitch The Scrubs soundtrack by Hollywood Records is well worth the money (and the 7 weeks I waited to get it imported!).
The Amazon Service, as per usual, was excellent and I recieved it in only 2 days. The soundtrack contains some excellent songs including "Good Time" and "Have It All" along with many others, you may never have heard of but I can assure you will enjoy listening to them if you buy the soundtrack!
A definte buy with a small information book, and if you put the CD into you PC you can access some special features on the internet!
Listing songs shown throughout episodes, the tracks reflect the rollercoaster ride of emotions that the characters experience. Particular favourites of mine being 'Good Life', which makes my heart melt everytime I hear it, and the outrageously catchy 'Good Time' by Leroy( which sadly I can't find the lyrics to anywhere!).
For those who haven't seen Scrubs (and I thoroughly recommend they do) the songs are just as good to hear without knowing from which episode they come from or to which character they relate to. I found it particularly interesting to hear such amazing tunes from artists I had never heard of, and am now scouring the internet for their albums.
Anyone who watches the program will know that alot of the emotional parts and the funny parts are backgrounded by a very apt and often lend a great intereral backbone to the story.
When reading the names of the songs on the back of the CD I have to admit I didnt recognise a single one (apart from the often remade classic "Halleluja") but when listening to the music, you find that most of the songs are recognisiable from the show and often you can pinpoint what episode a certain track was from.
The overall mentality of the soundtrack is one of music to suit many moods. The first track "Superman" is a very fitting into song to Scrubs and while it takes a short time when listening to it to ajust to the fact that the song itself is noticably slower than the edit played at the start of all the episodes.
Two fantastic track come from the brilliant 'Shins'. The tracks "Fresh Feeling" and "New Slang" are perfect music to unwind to. Francis Dunnery has a beautiful track "Good Life" which, coupled with Colin Haye's "Beautiful World" and "Overkill", give that perfect thoughtful mood.
There are one or two dodgy tracks, eg. "All In My Head" which isnt really to my taste but on the whole it is a fantasic compilation.
My personal favorite is the song "Have It All" by Jeremy Kay which is the quintessential 'wake-up' song I think I have ever heard in my life.
Buy this CD some of the songs will soon become favorites.
This disc only contains tracks from season 1, which is a shame as there is much good music in the next season also.
