Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Television made him famous, but his biggest hits happened off screen. CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND is the story of a legendary showman’s double life - television producer by day, CIA assassin by night.

The Soundtrack includes Freddy Cannon’s ‘Palisades Park’, Donovan’s ‘Sunshine Superman’ and Peter, Paul & Mary’s ‘If I had a Hammer’. In addition, this soundtrack features original music from the film, scored by Alex Wurman as well as the ‘Game Show Confessions Remix’ featuring classic Chuck Barris penned theme songs: The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game and Gene Gene the Dancing Machine.

Amazon.com

In keeping with this film's fantastic premise--that The Gong Show creator Chuck Barris led a double life as a CIA operative--the selections here err primarily on the zany side, although a couple cuts ("If I Had a Hammer," "Sincerely") are so incongruously earnest that they almost seem to imply his preposterous claims contained at least an element of veracity. Kicking off with Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon's 1962 hit "Palisades Park" (which Barris composed), the program balances kitschy Esquivel and Yma Sumac selections that any well-heeled hipster will instantly recognize with a couple lesser known, but equally worthy, retro gems: Vicki Carr's campy "The Silencers" (originally the theme to a 1966 Dean Martin spy caper), and a jazzy rendition of "There's No Business Like Show Business" by Rosemary Clooney that actually divorces this Irving Berlin chestnut from its overpowering associations with Ethel Merman--now that's hard to believe! --Kurt B. Reighley

Great music keeps coming back and for music lovers who
want to understand what the words to a song are, you have two of the very best female superstars Rosemary Clooney and the one and only Vikki Carr!
Actually, I really enjoyed this soundtrack and hope we can hear
more Vikki Carr music once again. I still listen to Moonstruck with Vikki's "It Must be Him" and now with her campy "The Silencers" on this soundtrack, I will be checking out her other CD's.
I loved the movie and I can recommend this soundtrack to anyone with great music taste!

"Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" is a wildly entertaining, funny and thought-provoking movie with a funky soundtrack. It's too good not to own. Although my co-workers think I'm crazy when I blast this CD in the laboratory, they love my sing-along rendition of Rosemary Clooney's "There's No Business Like Show Business." Alex Wurman did an excellent job with this music. "Berlin" is probably my favorite Wurman tune on this CD. Blast this song in your house and you'll feel like a cool cat just walking down your hallway in your PJs. I've seen the movie 4 times in the theatres and will probably see it many more times--the music is as cool as the movie. This soundtrack belongs in anyone's collection whose tastes are as eclectic as mine.

This CD would be much better if it included some of the main instrumental themes including "Wednesday's Child" originally the theme for Quiller Memorandum and "Experiment in Terror" from the film of the same name.
