Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There's nothing fancy or pretentious about the Moonlight Mile soundtrack, just classic cuts from classy bards and rockers. Sly and the Family Stone celebrate with the combustible horn-and-harmonica barnstormer "I Want to Take You Higher," which is followed by the majestic blues, soul, and rock hybrid of the Rolling Stones' epic title cut and Elton John's ragged piano rocker. The one-two glam rock punch of T. Rex and David Bowie shrieks with wild-eyed swagger, but things mellow out as Van Morrison, Jefferson Airplane, and Bob Dylan chime in with stripped-down, emotional storytelling. Even the one modern new song, a darker Travis number waltzing with urgent longing, sounds as timeless as these legends. The only black mark is Gary Glitter's tired, overplayed "Rock and Roll (Part 2)," whose fourth-quarter touchdown brashness sticks out like a sore thumb amid the otherwise tasteful selections. Indeed, Moonlight Mile is a solid album through and through. Blessedly highlighting lesser-known but still worthy cuts from music's great innovators, the album stands alongside soundtracks like The Royal Tenenbaums as an excellent example of how to make the familiar seem fresh and new. --Annie Zaleski

3.0 out of 5 stars Final Result: 3 1/2 Stars November 19, 2003
By Miss P
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Moonlight Mile" is a collection of songs that you've probably heard a million times before and could probably hear a million more. It's a solid 70's rock revue, but like the decade itself, there are some huge hits and huge misses. Having seen the movie first, I need to give this album 2 separate ratings.
If you HAVEN'T seen the Movie: 4 STARS. With songs such as the Rolling Stones' "Moonlight Mile," Elton John's more obscure "Razorface," and Bob Dylan's classic "Buckets Of Rain," how could you possibly go wrong? Add in Bowie's manic "Sweet Head," Van Morrison's achingly beautiful "I'll Be Your Lover Too" and both Sly and the Family Stone songs, and you've got a damn near perfect album. Unfortunately, the misplaced "I Hear You Knocking" and the awful hockey theme song, "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" knock one of the stars off, giving the album 4 out of 5 stars.
If you HAVE Seen the Movie: 3 STARS. There are one or two songs that were glaringly omitted from this album. Now I understand that with a compilation album, song rights play an enormous part in what makes the final cut. But to not include Van Morrison's "Sweet Thing," the song that ended the movie, is just wrong! Luckily, one Van song made it onto the album, but "Sweet Thing" would have added so much more to this cd.
Final Result: 3 1/2 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars The song that played during the movie trailer... January 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
was Elton John's "Someone Saved My Life Tonight". Why is that killer EJ song missing from this soundtrack? They should have had a couple musicians pen one or two original songs also. But still it is a small quibble in an otherwise quite good soundtrack. Dig?

4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful, stirring music October 14, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I haven't bought this soundtrack yet, but I just saw the movie. It's wonderful to hear beautiful music like this is in a movie. It definitely sets the mood of the story. My only disappointment was that Van Morrison's "Sweet Thing" was left out. This track ends the movie and is flat-out one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. Why leave it out? But anyway, this soundtrack definitely sounds worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but nonetheless amazing and beautiful January 22, 2005
By ruby717
Format:Audio CD
Upon falling in love with MOONLIGHT MILE, I fell madly in love with the music as well. Writer/director and master thief Brad Silberling also served as the music superviser on the movie, and he did a wonderful job. This is one of the best soundtracks that I've ever heard. Music is plays a vital part in movies. Music can enhance a scene, make it more memorable, comedic, sadder, or even change the tone of it. These songs really and truely enhanced the scenes that they were placed in. What better song could be used for the center of the movie than Rolling Stones' "Moonlight Mile"? There is a line that goes, "I am just living to be lying by your side, but I'm just about a moonlight mile on down the road." For me, that summs up Joe's and Birdie's relationship right there.

Unfortunately, there are some flaws. I was hoping to hear more. For example, it would've been really nice to see "Fire" by Ohio Players or "Sweet Thing" by Van Morisson, or "Meet Me In the Morning" by the great Bob Dylan make the cut. And I also loved the beautiful score by Mark Isham and was disappointed to see only fourty seconds of it (which was only played in a deleted scene). I think that nobody would be disappointed to go without "Love Will Come Through" by Travis (was that song even in the movie?) or "I Hear You Knocking" by Dave Edmunds, but that's just my biased opinion.

However, it's a beautiful soundtrack, and I'd buy it even if I hadn't seen the movie. It is filled with beautiful and romantic songs that I hope to play if and when I get married, such as "Moonlight Mile", "I'll be Your Lover, Too", and the amazingly romantic "Song to the Siren" by Robert Plant.

4.0 out of 5 stars In Response to "A Music Fan" September 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The song that plays during the credits is called "Song To The Siren" by Robert Plant. It is on his CD titled "Dreamland". Get it, you will be glad you did! I gave this soundtrack 4 stars because they omitted two great songs that were in the movie: Meet Me in the Morning by Bob Dylan, and Sweet Thing by Van Morrison. What were they thinking?
