I've always loved the film "Four Weddings And A Funeral", and the musical score and all of the songs that play throughout are just brilliant, so I just had to buy this CD. Elton John is just so cool, the song "But Not For Me" which plays in the very beginning of the film is incredibly apt to anyone who really feels that marriage is not for them and brings the scenes from the beginning to mind, so I also find this song very funny. "Crocodile Rock" is just absolutely crazy as well as cool so it makes for a time when you can let yourself go completely mental with your dance moves, and Elton John's third song "Chapel Love" is simply gorgeous since he's accompanied by a number of female backing singers and they all complement each other really nicely. I love Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive"; it is stunning and also brings back that scene when Charles is staring at Carrie at the reception of Angus and Laura's wedding because of course he needs to survive, not to mention survive bumping into old girlfriends! Another great song that's been inspired by the film is "It Should Have Been Me" sung by Gladys Knight and The Pips which reminds one of Charles at Carrie's wedding and how he's afraid to commit in the film, so it is beautifully ironic that the titular words mirror his thoughts more than his attitude to marriage. The score music in track twelve entitled "Four Weddings And A Funeral/Funeral Blues" is just exquisite; it's covered in five chapters, and it's also sheer genius that the people who made this CD included all of the most memorable one liners and bits of dialogue which are all hilarious as well. The actual "Funeral Blues" music is really touching and profound, and plays out as John Hannah does a truly moving performance of "Stop All The Clocks" by W.H Auden. It is simply amazing to listen to; it's the first of any poems I've heard on a CD before and I love it. The other songs on it are also great; it makes a nice change to listen to Lena Fiagre singing "Can't Smile Without You" instead of the couple who really can't sing it at all in the film! So overall this is a terrific film soundtrack and it came in really good condition and time, and I'm very happy with it.

These wonderful songs brought back the atmosphere of the film very well, but they can stand on their on as well. They give off a good, easy feeling of happiness in general.

The tracks selected from this soundtrack are those songs that bring you back in time with beautiful melodies, like Chapel Of Love, or The Secret Marriage, as well as the classic Love is All Around, I Will Survive and You're The First, My Last, My Everything; a very good compilation of the classics love songs.
