Product Description

Bend It Like Beckham ~ Soundtrack

Amazon.com

Underdog athlete triumphs against all the odds and finds more than mere victory in the bargain--it's a cinematic tradition that stretches considerably beyond the Rocky franchise. But this 2002 UK hit about an East Asian immigrant teen who dreams of becoming a soccer star puts a winning new trans-cultural spin on the formula. The film's song-score is as savory, playful and determined as the film itself, a rich collection of mostly contemporary tracks that shakes up an evocative cocktail of pop infused with soul, club mixes, cool jazz, new wave, traditional Indian flourishes, and even a parting, triumphant shot of Puccini. Victoria Beckham, former Spice Girl and wife of titular inspiration/soccer legend David Beckham weighs in with the breathy neo-disco of "I Wish," while fellow Spicester Mel C offers up the sprightly pop of "Independence Day." But it's the dizzying array of transplanted Indian pop music--oft-performed by the winning team of Brit Billy Sagoo and American vocalist Gunjan--that makes the album such a winning delight. This is world music with a dancefloor beat and a smile. --Jerry McCulley

I loved the movie and went right out and bought the CD.
"shopgirl855"
This is a great collection of songs from an equally great movie, a perfect mix of Eastern and Western music.
Eleanor Pittinger
I think that if you like the movie,(Bend it like Beckham) you will probably like the soundtrack.

If you saw (and, no doubt, loved) "Bend It Like Beckham," you know that the music - a perfect blend of UK and Indian sounds and melodies - plays a big part in putting and keeping a smile on your face as your leave the theater.
That's not by accident. As director Gurinder Chadha points out on the liner notes, this music comes from her own personal music collection and "makes up the many different sides of me, and, therefore, my lead character 'Jess' and her world."
She concludes that "It's a great thing being a director sometimes because you can put the soundtrack to your life on film and CD to share with everyone."
Beautifully stated. And I'll go one step further: you can enjoy this CD *even without* seeing the film. It's a wonderful collection of songs.
But if you have seen the film, your level of enjoyment is far greater, especially with the kick of the interspersed dialogue, mostly courtesy of Shaheen Khan who, as Jess' mother, gets and delivers most of the best lines.

I loved the movie and bought this soundtrack because of all the great music in the film, but especially because of a few certain songs: curtis mayfield's "move on up," the remix of "she's a lady" by tom jones, and two techno songs which may or may not be basement jaxx and baddest ruffest (i don't know).
I was very angry to find that all FOUR of these songs (in my opinion some of the best songs in the film) were NOT included in the soundtrack. Although the two dance songs are on the UK release, neither release has the mayfield or the tom jones. Although the other songs are very catchy and fun, these songs made the movie.

Fab movie and soundtrack. If you get the CD from Australia - it has 22 tracks including the Curtis Mayfield track - 'Move on Up'. Can be ordered thru chaosmusic.com in Melbourne - It will cost about $US17.00 including postage. May take a couple of weeks but is worth the wait.

Format: Audio CD
I bought this item used and the version I have doesn't seem to exist here (inside the booklet it says it's on sale in India only) because neither this or any of the imports available at Amazon match my track listing but there's a total of 21 songs, including "Move On Up" by Curtis Mayfield, which I remember a previous reviewer complaining about not being included in the mix. Honestly though, I could have lived without that particular piece, which happens to be the only one I skip. I also would have preferred the song they used when the girls were at a club in the movie by Melanie C, "I Turn To You", instead of "Independence Day". But before I start sounding all negative, those are minor flaws that I'm able to excuse because I don't want to dissuade anyone from buying this fantastic soundtrack. I found "Bend It Like Beckham" to be one of the better films to come out of 2003 but one thing I consistently took notice of was how great the music sounded. It blended in with each scene perfectly yet I could also tell it would be able to stand on its own and that's when I knew I had to buy the soundtrack. Cultures clash and come together and that is reflected in the music as well. Some guilty pleasure pop tunes by Blondie on "Atomic", Texas on "Inner Smile", and a former Spice Girl, Victoria, on "I Wish", whom also happens to be the infamous football (known as soccer in America) player's wife, meets modern world grooves that fans of Talvin Singh and Transglobal Underground will absolutely die for, with standout tracks being "Darshan" by B21, "Jind Mahi" by Malkit Singh, and the funky reggae dance beats of "Baddest Ruffest" by Backyard Dog, which reminds me a little of Basement Jaxx.

For those of you who were upset about several missing songs on the soundtrack, you might want to look into the imported Indian version of the CD. It has 21 songs on it, including the Curtis Mayfield track that everyone wants. It also has dialogue tracks form the movie.

After seeing "Bend It Like Beckham," I left the theater with several songs in my head. My head was spinning for hours afterward with a variety of musical and cultural treats. The next day, I got online and ordered the soundtrack from here. I just got it today and have been listening to it non-stop since. I'm happy to say that the soundtrack lives up to my expectations, but it doesn't exceed them. I was disappointed by the number of songs featured in the movie that somehow didn't make the cut.
Besides that one little flaw, this soundtrack is very close to being perfect. It has a great variety of upbeat tracks that will keep you awake and in a good mood. My favorite songs are "Inner Smile" by Texas (if I had to choose one, this would be it), "Kinna Sohna" by Gunjan, "Independence Day" by Melanie C, and "Hot Hot Hot" by Bina Mistry. All of the tracks are great though. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone else who loved the movie and wanted to take home a little bit of the happy atmosphere it created.

I totally agree with music fan regarding the absence of the Curtis Mayfield track "move on up", not only is it a great track, one of Curtis' Best and Most Uplifting Solo Trax, but the times (plural) that it is used it makes the scenes. It is a song about fulfilling your dreams and is used perfectly to demonstrate that same theme that drives the movie. overall the soundtrack is fantastic and the movie was beyond phenomenal. I'm going to buy the CD and have already been signed up to be notified as to the release of the DVD so I can buy it the DAY it comes out but like I said the soundtrack just isn't complete without the Curtis Mayfield track.
ps. I was especially surprised that it isn't even the import version of the soundtrack which does include alot of stuff left off the american release!!!
