Product Description

Soundtrack to the 2004 sequel to the hit 2001 film, starring Renee Zellweger, features music from Sting, Annie Lennox, Mary J. Blige, Rufus Wainwright, Dido, Jamie Cullum, & more.

Amazon.com

While it's cast largely in the same musical mold as its winning predecessor, there's a more palpable sense of romantic melancholy wafting through this soundtrack to the further misadventures of Rene Zelwegger's lovably hapless, love-triangulated Bridget. Though still aimed at adult contemporary tastes, it's also imbued with a healthier dose anglocentric cool via tracks like Jamelia's torchy "Stop," Will Young's elegant take on Sade's "Your Love is King," teenaged Alfie contributor Joss Stone's soulful "Super Duper Love" and the ubiquitous Kylie Minogue's teasing "Can't Get You Out of My Head." Mary J. Blige offers up a stark, melodramatic cover of Elton John's "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" while Rufus Wainwright (with Dido) turns Anna McCarrigle's (Wainwright's mother) "I Eat Dinner" into an emotive centerpiece. There are the expected 70's chestnuts (10cc's "I'm Not in Love," "Nobody Does It Better" by Carly Simon, Minnie Ripperton's "Lovin You") and the obligatory superstar remake (Sting and Annie Lennox muscling up his "We'll Be Together"), but a few surprises as well, including the deliciously over-the-top, nouveau glam-rock left turn by The Darkness, "I Believe In A Thing Called Love." --Jerry McCulley

After the movie, had to get the soundtrack. It is as great as the first. (Thought I wish Gabrielle did another song!). However, there are only 15 songs, and the songs we really wanted were not on this one. So doing an internet search we discovered another album in the UK WITH the 15 plus the other 6 songs left off in the US version. So disappointed! I would not have bought it to start with if I had known that there was another FULL album out there. Now I have to wait for the import, and REPURCHASE the other 15 songs.

The soundtrack of "Bridget Jones: The edge of reason" is a mix of pop songs, old classics and music that is meant to make you laugh, thinking about the movie. It's a predictable selection, for sure, but who cares? Isn't it funny and delicious to listen to Barry's White "you're the first, the last..." or "I'm not in love", by 10cc, on the same album? This CD brings three highlights, in my opinion. The first, probably the best song on the compilation, is the version of "everlasting love", sang by Jamie Cullum. This guy has an amazing voice and really makes the song sound better. I also love the emotional cover of "Sorry seems to be the hardest word", by Mary J. Blige and at last, but not least, the duo between Rufus Wainwright and Dido, "I eat dinner" -- absolutely funny.

I have the three CDs of "Bridget Jones" movies and whenever I feel like, I listen to them,to remember the movie, which is also great. Check out the international version of the album, with 3 extra tracks!

I would REALLY like to know why the excellent Jamelia song, "Stop" has TOTALLY different LYRICS on the CD than in the movie. Weirdest thing. The film version of the song had beautiful lyrics that were dead on appropriate to the scene. The album version is a generic love song. Forgettable lyrics. I'm hoping that the IMPORT will have the real version. Again, as with the first movie, the IMPORT CD is the only way to go, and Bridget fans will find that the songs they TRULY LOVED FROM THE MOVIES ARE NOT ON THE US VERSIONS OF THE CD's. Another music scam ? I'm afraid so. Bad form. Other than that the songs are great for Bridget devotees. BUT SAVE YOUR $ AND SHELL OUT FOR THE IMPORT, AS THE RECORD COMPANY SEEMS TO BE FORCING US TO DO.

Using the same formula as its predescessors (Bridget Jones' Diary and Bridget Jones' Diary 2), this CD contains an impressive line-up of contemporary pop and r&b greats from both sides of the pond. While most of the new tracks are reworked pop classics made to sound more relevant and modern, it is the obligatory evergreen tracks that shine and lift this collection above mediocrity.

The aforementioned remakes include UK Britsoul queen Jamelia's "Stop" and Sting's interesting duet of his own old hit "We'll Be Together" with Annie Lennox. Robbie Williams (who also contributed to the first BJD instalment's soundtrack) offers a rather melancholic and dreary tune "Misunderstood" which has since inexplicably become a Top 10 hit single in the UK. Oh well.

Classics that are featured here include "Nobody Does It Better" by Carly Simon, 10CC's "I'm Not In Love" and also the perennial "You're My First, the Last, My Everything" by the late great Barry White (which is mysteriously omitted from the US version but appears in all other international pressings).

Add all the plusses and minuses together and you end up with a slightly above-average effort that attempts to recreate the excitement that was Bridget Jones's Diary. Close, but no cigar.

This soundtrack is very different from the first one, just like the movie is different from the previous one.

There are some really great songs in this album like Joss Stone's Super Duper Love, which in my opinion really completes the album because it's such an amazing song. I think it gives people who don't know Joss to get a glimpse of what a great artist she is.

Beyonce's Crazy in Love, which is so popular is also a great song on the album.

I think they've selected tunes that are remarkably recognizable like "Your Love is King" and "Everlasting Love". That also helps make this album a must for any collector.

Overall this is a cd you can listen to anytime anywhere, and it's so easy to sing along to, and just have a good time.

I love they've included music by great artists like Mary J. Blige, Rufus Wainwright, Kylie Minogue and Sting aswell.

Frankly, I haven't heard this CD (I have seen the movie, and know the actual soundtrack...not the commercial one that actually gets sold). All I did was see if "...Thing Called Love" by The Darkness was on here. Frankly, not the hugest fan of the song. But ever since I've seen the movie, that song will ALWAYS remind me of the scene where Hugh and Colin chase each other around (and through) the fountain. Two full-grown British men (somehow, the "formal" accent just makes the whole thing funnier) fighting in a fountain to the delight of onlookers. I CRACKED UP! I have no idea why that scene hit me the way it did, but for that, the soundtrack is worth a listen.

I just saw Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, and I immediately went out and bought the soundtrack. I was thrilled to see Joss Stone, Robbie Williams, Beyoncé and Carly Simon were all part of the tracks. I especially like 'Your Love is King', by Will Young. It perfectly fits how Bridget and Mark feel for each other!

This, along with the first Bridget Jones soundtrack, is a must own!
