Richard Grieco, you see right through me.

I don’t really know what the fascination with movie sound tracks was back in the 90’s but it seems that I own a lot of them. I'd say that about 85% of the soundtracks we own are all from movies that came out in the 90's. The soundtrack for today’s CD of the week is...

First of all, I’m going to state for the record that I HATE this movie. It is one of the stupidest I think I have ever seen, its quite high on my list. (my #1 stupidest I have ever seen is Dumb and Dumber.) I know I may quote it sometimes, but that’s just the way my brain works. Make no mistake, though, I hate everything about it… except the music.

This movie came out in 1998, but I didn’t hear the soundtrack until 2002, after I married into it. I am a sucker for remixes. If there is a remix or a techno version of something I love, I have to own it. This album became a "must own" and had I not gotten it when I married John I would have run out and bought it because it is just that great. It is full of so many great dance tracks and remixes that when I finally did get to hear it I was sad that I had missed out on it for all the previous years.

There are so many good songs on this album that it's hard to pick out two or three that I love so I wont. I'll simply state that the album is mixed in such a way that each song melts into the next really well. Not a good album to use in compilations because of the intro and extras on the songs, but I'd rather just listen to the album as a whole.


This post is dedicated to John.
