I didn't think I was ever going to see a remake of an already classic film, and then I remembered the soundtrack (for it's time) became a huge hit itself. Well, here it is over 25 years later, and most of the people who perform on this album weren't even born when it first came out back in 1984! (They made the fictional town of Bomont, Utah in Tennessee, and he's no longer from Chicago, he's from - Boston?)

Anyway, I hoped I wasn't too biased about it as I loved the original soundtrack - I was just turning 20 myself and this was on everybody's cassette radio players! Anyway, here goes, it's been updated with new songs, updates of old classics, and a lot more.

12 songs totaling 55 minutes:

01. Blake Shelton - Footloose - it's a radical departure from the Kenny Loggins original, to be sure, but it's got that new-country-meets-lite-rock good time happy feeling, y'all! Besides, wasn't that the point of the original movie? It's fun without being insulting to the spirit of the original.

02. Zac Brown of The Zac Brown Band - Where The River Goes - a lot of country-rock is featured here, and who better to represent the youth of America? This is a nice instantly classic lazy tune to play when you're just getting lazy on a hot summer afternoon.

03. Lissie - Little Lovin' - she was only born a few years before the original film, but her rural Illinois upbringing mixed with her wonderful voice (only until now heard mostly in Europe) showcases her talent for giving that urgent sound, straight out of a young Stevie Nicks songbook, but with a hipper twist. A great song!

04. Ella Mae Bowen - Holding Out For A Hero - Bonnie Tyler is going to have to wonder when she hears this "what was wrong with my version?

I saw the movie at a sneak preview in Austin, TX. I was in the no way should they redo Footloose camp. Then I saw the movie and was an immediate fan. The music in the movie is SOOOO much better then the crap on this soundtrack. This soundtrack is way to heavy in the singer/songwriter style of music, and has a lot of county. There are songs from the new movie completely missing. This "soundtrack" is very disappointing. It should really be called a CD inspired by the movie Footloose, cuz people, it ain't the soundtrack to the movie. Don't bother buying this unless you're into singer/songwriter style and are looking for something new.

As I read through all of the reviews for this album there was one very common theme....everyone seemed to be comparing it to the original. This was not the original movie and this is indeed not the original soundtrack. No sense comparing the two. They are two very separate things and if you didn't like the remake or album in comparison, it is no reason to mark this one down. It is a great album in itself. I could care less if it's not like any other album, that's the fun thing about music, all albums are different and that is what makes music awesome. I absolutely loved Blake Shelton's cover of "Footloose" and think this album is overall a lot of fun to listen to.

Love all the songs on it. I highly recommend it if you like to get down, get funky and get back up again, then this is the one I would have in my collection. I used to be a mobile DJ and this disk would have been in my top ones played because each song whether it is a remake of one of the old ones or the new ones added, it still would make folks get out on the dance floor. I loved both the Original and the remake. Loved the dancing in the remake. Those kids can dance!!!

Folks, I'm not some old fuddy-duddy who can't appreciate a cover song. Gretchen Wilson covering Barracuda? Rockin'. Alison Krauss covering the Foundations? Awesome. Rascal Flatts covering Life is a Highway? Too cool.

However, this CD is a hideously overproduced mish-mash of inferior remakes and unmemorable originals. The worst of the remakes is "Holding Out for a Hero" which turns an upbeat anthem into a whiny plea for a boyfriend. Blake Shelton's effort on "Footloose" is at least tolerable but loses all of the soul and passion of Kenny Loggin's version. The original songs aren't much better. They finish it off (if you can get that far) by putting a token hip-hop song on an album full of country and blues.

Go listen to the original Footloose movie soundtrack and compare song per song. As an example "Holding out for a Hero" original song by Bonnie Tyler is inspiring and has a great dance beat compared to the new rendition which does not even resemble the great sound and composition of the original.

In fact compare the whole movie to the original. The new movie seems a pale imitation.

I purchased the soundtrack and was completely disappointed. Not as good as the original soundtrack....I would suggest purchasing the original soundtrack before purchasing the rereleased movie soundtrack.
