Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Helen Fielding's popular Bridget Jones character--a hapless British single gal who spends her days obsessing over men, cigarettes, and calories--has been criticized by more than a few feminists for her Cosmo girl conformist mentality. Perhaps this thoughtful soundtrack, which launches with Grammy-winning ass-kicker Shelby Lynne's "Killin' Kind," will make up for Bridget's self-doubt. Sheryl Crow turns in her strongest single in years, the saucy "Kiss That Girl," while Chaka Khan's classic "I'm Every Woman" is enough in itself to make any single woman's Friday night complete--no date required, just a nice pair of dancing shoes. A weepy, straightforward cover of Eric Carmen's "All by Myself" by Jamie O'Neal is more hilarious than it is emotive; ditto for Robbie Williams's karaoke-style take on Frank Sinatra's "Have You Met Miss Jones?" Ignore former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell's tragic reworking of the Weather Girls' "It's Raining Men" at all costs; it's the album's regrettable one-night stand. The Beatles may have said all you need is love, but what Bridget Jones needs is a nice soundtrack to get her through a terrifying cesspool of womanizers and fruity alcoholic drinks. --Kristy Martin

Customer Reviews

I love most of the songs on this cd..loved this movie and the music.

Geri Halliwell rocks the soundtrack though, she's the reason I bought it and the only reason I put up with the rest of the songs chosen for the movie!!!

You know a soundtrack is a good soundtrack when you can play a song on the soundtrack and picture the momment in the movie when that song plays.

I don't know why everybody's so critical of this cd. This is one of my favorite soundtrack cds. It captures the essence of the movie with a good mix of upbeat and slower songs while using a variety of musical styles. Some songs are a throwback to the classical sound of Sinatra (Robbie Williams' "Have you met Miss Jones?" comes immediately to mind) while others have a clearly more modern feel (Sheryl Crow's "Kiss the Girl" is a good example). I guess some people are peeved that certain songs from the movie aren't in the soundtrack, but that's always the case. Granted, it would've nice if "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" was included. That said, however, the track listing is available BEFORE you buy the cd, so I don't get it when people get upset that a song that ISN'T listed as a track ISN'T on the cd. The cd isn't trying to fool anyone...
Anyhow, I guess I think the cd's gotten a bum wrap because of people's own expectations, not because the cd's bad. It's a great cd. It's totally fun. I actually prefer the fast songs to the slow ones, so I like to program the cd player to play tracks 2, 3, 4, 8, 9, and 11. I can (and do) listen to these songs over and over again. Track 2 is Crow's "Kiss the Girl". This song is consistent with Crow's normal style, so if you like Sheryl Crow, you'd like this. Track 3 is "Love" by Rosie. I don't know anything about Rosie except for this track, but it's kinda funky and has a nice slow and steady beat. Track 4 is Robbie William's "Have you met Miss Jones?" Very Sinatra-esque. It's absolutely fantastic and Robbie has a great voice. Track 8 is "Not of this Earth", also by the talented Mr. Williams. Track 9 is "Out of Reach" by Gabrielle.

If you liked the movie (which I did), the Soundtrack is worth purchasing, but expect to feel somewhat cheated. What separates a modern (non-musical) soundtrack from a general recording is that, at the very least, it's supposed to be evocative of the scenes or sentiments of the film. The power pop songs and oldies featured on this Bridget soundtrack do evoke some great scenes, including Shelby Lynne's "Dreamsome" (the blue soup dinner with Mark Darcy), Marvin and Diana's "Stop, Look, Listen" (the make out scenes with Daniel Cleaver), Chaka Khan's "I'm Every Woman" (Bridget taking control of her life again), Gabrielle's "Out of Reach" (moving on after learning of Mark's engagement), and "All By Myself" (the campy karaoke-at-home opening scene). However, there are two glaring faults: First, the omission of "Respect" and Van Morrison's version of "Someone Like You". Both songs appeared twice in the film at pivotal moments - so the label should have fought harder for licensing rights for these songs. The Van Morrison number would have alone justified your purchase; it's that good. While the label tries to cover this up by having Dina Carroll record a new soul/R&B version of "Someone Like You", it doesn't evoke anything from the film. (After all, the song represented Mark's feelings towards Bridget, so Morrison's vocal was perfect.) The second fault is the random sequencing: Why weren't the songs sequenced as they appear in the film? The first half of the CD is filled with songs that were either background music or closing credit numbers....the good stuff doesn't appear til track 7. Overall, these are great songs that preserve the spirit of the film.Read more ›

i've been disappointed with many soundtracks lately because they don't include songs that are featured in the movie. this isn't a perfect collection- but come on- do we really need to have aretha's "respect" on here? i'm sure everyone's already got it in their CD collection, right?! and yes, van morrison's version of "someone like you" would have been a nice inclusion, but dina carroll's version is lovely- the girl can sing! if you're still hankering for van, buy the "french kiss" soundtrack- probably the last good soundtrack until bridget! this CD has made me a fan of both shelby lynne and rosey (she sounds like the offspring of poe & fiona apple,) and confirmed my feeling that robbie williams is the most talented unknown-in-the-united-states singer- his version of "have you met miss jones" leaves no doubt that he deserves to inherit harry connick, jr.'s throne as frank sinatra's heir-apparent. and i'm so glad they included the diana ross/marvin gaye song "stop, look, listen to your heart," (for all of us romantics who swooned over the scene in the film in which that song is played.) and what a nice touch to be able to hear bits of patrick doyle's score! the only low points are jamie o'neal's cheesy cover of eric carmen's "all by myself," and geri halliwell's rendition of "it's raining men." we always suspected she was the spice girl who couldn't sing, and this confirms it! if you loved the movie, the soundtrack is a welcome accompaniment! and one last thing- i wish there were more stills of colin firth in the CD booklet!
