The years are rolling along and I am still listening to this original soundtrack album, which has the virtue that these songs are actually in the movie. I would agree the soundtrack is better than the film, but you have to appreciate that the album includes the memorably moving moment when Whoopi Goldberg signs "You Got It" because Mary-Louise Parker does not have the strength to continue. This is still one of my favorite love songs. As with most such collections, for me the standout tracks are those I cannot get anywhere else, which includes: Bonnie Raitt's cover of Roy Orbison's "You Got It" (which is both the first and last track on the album in an interesting bookend effect), Melissa Etheridge's "I Take You With Me" (the song that is actually used at the end of the film), and Steve Nicks's "Somebody Stand By Me" (written by Sheryl Crow and Todd Wolf). "Boys on the Side" remains one of the best soundtrack collections of the 1990s and is certainly evocative of the film.

This is such a great cd, where do I start? It goes from rockin' blues of Bonnie Raitt. To the rock of Chrissie Hynde with The Pretenders, who I have been a long fan of. Then to the excellent voice and range of Annie Lennox, who I think has got to have one of the most wonderful voices around. Joan Armatrading, I saw her in concert many many moons ago in Germany. She was not known then in America and she was as good then as she is now.
There is not a bad song on this CD, and that says something this day and age. I plug this CD in when I need some umph to get started doing what ever I need to get done. When I need a pick-me-up get me in a better mood. Or just whenever... and want to hear some good music.

When I got this album, I got it because I had to pick a CD in order to get other CDs (one of those Columbia House deals), and this was the only other title that I thought I would even remotely like on their offer sheet. When I received it, I wasn't expecting very much; however, this compilation is very satisfying. The different artists, some singing originally for the soundtrack, add a variety of mood, spirit, styles, and taste to this album. Bonnie Raitt's rendition of Roy Orbison's "You Got It" is played twice, as the beginning and ending song--not as great as the original, though. Whoopie Goldberg actually sings a slow (and very nice) version of the song also. The Pretenders perform "Everyday Is Like Sunday," a song that seems to be underrated--as most Pretenders' songs seem to be. Not everything on here is appealing, but that just confirms the variety of styles, mood, spirit, and taste that are contained in this album. Consequently, chances are, one will find something one likes in this album.

this and "City of Angels" CD...

The movie, they can keep. The soundtrack - Love it. This one and "City of Angels" soundtracks are my all time favorite compilation CDs. Maybe even tied for first place. Can't decide.

Bonnie Raitt, not a country fan, but, her song "You Got It" is wonderful. Melissa Eldridge, not a big fan - other than this song "I Take You With Me." Sheryl Crow, Indigo Girls, Stevie Nicks sings "Somebody Stand By Me" love it. Pretenders, Cranberries, awesome. Annie Lenox, couldn't be lovelier with her "Why." Sarah McLachlan - lovely.

this CD is so nice, you don't have to like any one of the contributors, in particular, and you'll love them all together here. Soft, soothing, sensual, earthy, sad but sweet... a perfect CD for bedtime. Or for reading a book and relaxing.

Just lovely. Nothing more to say! Buy it!

I bought this soundtrack for two reasons: 1 - Melissa Etheridge and 2 - Bonnie Raitt.
I was pleasantly surprised upon hearing a few other choice cuts on this album. The Indigo Girls' "Power of Two" is one of the most intense songs I have heard in ages, and one that I play repeatedly. It possesses a certain magic that most artists in the studio today seem to lack.
I could have done without most of the other songs on this album (including the Whoopi Goldberg cover of "You Got It") but the songs by Etheridge, the Indigo Girls, Stevie Nicks, the Cranberries, and Sheryl Crow most definitely make up for it. If I had it to do all over again, I would run out and buy this album again.

All the songs on this album are great songs, performed by great female singers. Then why only 4 stars? Well, I really don't think it was necessary to have 'You Got It' sung by Bonnie Raitt, twice, (not even an alternate version, but the same) especially as it is also sung by Whoopie Goldberg, making it 3 times that that song is featured. I really do love that song, but 3 times on the same album is a bit of an overkill.But apart from that, the album is fine, the highlight being 'Ol' 55' performed by Sarah McLachlan. She states in the liner notes that this song was recorded in the wee hours of the morning after they had consumed a lot of red wine. They had never played it before together, and most of the band only had a vague recollection of the songs existence. The few of them that did know the song were mouthing chord changes to each other. It really does have a special feel to it.
