Love these versions of 80's tunes!
on 7 July 2014
I haven’t seen the film but I liked the sound of it and bought the CD on spec.
It’s a great collection of 80s songs – some of them are fairly close to the original versions but a few have different arrangements. I particularly liked “It must have been love”, sung beautifully by Hannah Arterton (sister of Gemma) and “Wild Boys” – not my favourite song of the decade but a really terrific upbeat version. Unlike some other film musical soundtracks e.g. Mamma Mia or Les Miserables no one let’s the side down on the vocal front (eat your heart out Russell Crowe). A feelgood CD – great for the car whatever the weather!
