Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Forrest Gump (1994) is one of the most successful films ever made, winning Tom Hanks his second successive Best Actor Oscar (he won the previous year for Philadelphia) as well as claiming the Best Picture Oscar and many other awards and nominations, including several for music. A unique fable of American life from the 1950s to the 80s, the film blends comedy, drama, war, romance and groundbreaking special effects into a social and political portrait of the passing years, all seen through the eyes of the intellectually challenged but immensely likeable Forrest Gump. The soundtrack is a double album featuring 31 classic pop tunes plus a suite from Alan Silvestri's rich orchestral music, represented more completely on the companion score album. Opening with Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog", this is a fine anthology of three decades of American music, taking in everything from Joan Baez's "Blowin' In The Wind" to Aretha Franklin's "Respect", The Mammas and The Papas' "California Dreamin'" and Simon & Garfunkel's "Mrs. Robinson". Here also is Scott McKenzie with "San Francisco", plus Jefferson Airplane, the Supremes, Lynyrd Skynrd and many more. Like American Graffiti (1973), this is one of the great pop soundtracks, happily at home in just about any music collection. --Gary S. Dalkin

Format:Audio CD
The soundtrack to the movie Forrest Gump gives us an excellent assortment of American hits that cannot be ignored; they're all THAT good. The quality of the sound is excellent; and the artwork is very tastefully done.

The track set starts off with none other than Elvis Presley singing and belting out his famous number, "Hound Dog." The guitar work and drums work well; but Elvis' voice carries this number and the backup vocalists are great! "(I Don't Know Why) But I Do" by Clarence 'Frogman' Henry registers huge on this scale; this gets the royal treatment and it fits perfectly with so much of the other music on this album. Similarly "Walk Right In" by The Rooftop Singers has an infectiously happy melody to it; and this is an excellent example of 1960s folk music. Moreover, "Blowin' In The Wind" by Joan Baez sparkles as if it were still fresh and new today--it's that much of a classic. Excellent!

"I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" features The Four Tops singing their hearts out; and it all works very well. "Respect by Aretha Franklin is easily one of my favorites on this two CD set; it's awesome and it's easily a major highlight of this two CD set.

"California Dreamin'," of course, features The Mamas and The Papas; this song inspired so many young people in the 1960s to journey to California in search of inner peace and a better quality of life. "Mrs. Robinson" is equally bright when Simon & Garfunkel sing it; they harmonize perfectly and their guitar work is mighty fine!

"San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair)" by Scott Mackenzie really sounds great as it ever did; Scott's melody is really very pretty and I enjoy this number very much.

4.0 out of 5 stars This CD is like a box of chocolates. July 16, 2003
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
This is a good selection of rock and roll, but I don't think it's essential, unless "Forrest Gump" is your favorite movie of all time. There's no point in complaining about what's not here since that would take weeks. But what was selected, was done so because I think it said something about the times, the way people were feeling, and about what was going on. I don't think anything was included just because it rocked. "Elvis" of course because he's the king. "CCR" probably because of wartimes. "The Doors" and "Beach Boys" might represent that California vibe. "Dylan" and "Baez" for the folk and beatnik scenes. I'm sure many of these artists mean different things to different people. The song I connect to the most is Nilsson's "Everybody's Talkin'". For some reason it made me quit the military and move to New England. Of course all these songs can just be enjoyed without getting too deep about them. If you're looking for an eclectic mix of music from the 50's to the 80's, you should get your hands on "Forrest Gump".

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT ALBUM PERIOD!!!! January 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This album is HUGE and great. Lots of great music by different

singers/bands. The album follows the time period thoughout

this movie starting in the 50's and 60's. You have "Sweet

Home Alabama" which is considered by many to be one if not

the greatest southern rock songs ever. I'm not a huge fan

of the band, but there is no denying the greatness of some of their work.

You have some great MoTown cuts like "I Can't Help Myself"

by The Four Tops is one of my favorite Motown classics. We

also have Frankins "Respect" that is a classic that you

just have to love. This is arguably the best soundtrack

ever put together. If you love 50-70's music there has to

be some stuff here for you. Jackson Browne classic

"Running On Empty" is another track not to miss aswell as

CCR's classic"Fortunate Son" another outstanding track. If

you were to put together a classic album spanding 4 decades

this 2 disk set would be close to being perfect.

This is a must have for lovers of classic music that has

stood the test of time. The Doors, CCR, The Four Tops, The

Byrds,Jackson Browne, Doobie Brothers, Aretha Franklin,

Pickett, Bob Dylan, Youngbloods, Elvis Presley just to

name some... Just a superb collection of music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack but incomplete. February 6, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although the movie soundtrack is truly great, featuing a cross-section of the greates music of the 60's and 70's, the CD is incomplete. It lacks several tracks which were in the movie, including the Jimi Hendrix version of "All Along the Watchtower," and "Red, White and Blue." However, the presence of the other featured greats more than make up for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Times of the Past September 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I enjoyed the motion picture soundtrack to "Forest Gump."

The variety of music speaks of hope, despair, love, and time passing by. While events can often seem senseless, they can often end up being meaningful especially if we make them that way.

The music did a great job capturing the spirit of the movie and I can't think of a better selection for the script. I believe movies should give us something to think about and this soundtrack does so as well. Thank you for offering such a great and thought provoking producting.
