Amazon.com

Writer-director Marc Lawrence's romantic comedy gently satirizes the music industry's past and present via Hugh Grant's Alex Fletcher, a has-been Rock of the '80s icon given another shot at the charts by young pop diva Cora Corman (newcomer Haley Bennett). Grant gives some surprisingly credible--if often gently tongue-in-cheek--performances in his musical debut; indeed, he carries better than half the soundtrack with his earnest vocal charms. The production gets key help from Fountain of Wayne's Adam Schlesinger, who contributes a delicious, loving send-up of Wham! courtesy of "Meaningless Kiss," the emotive piano confessional "Don't Write Me Off," and two versions of "Way Back into Love," the comeback ballad/duet that drives the story line. A playful demo version of the latter pairs Grant with co-star Drew Barrymore (playing the florist who becomes Fletcher's unlikely songwriting foil), while Grant's ultimate duet with young Bennett evokes contemporary pop conceits with a keen, affectionate flair that also graces the young singer's Britney-esque "Buddha's Delight," "Slam," and the more obviously snarky "Entering Bootytown." Rounding out the collection are a pair of complimentary tracks by Swedish pop acts: The Sounds' bouncy "Tony the Beat" and the club-slinky groove of Teddybears' "Different Sound." Highlighted by Grant's sympathetic vocals and a knowing musical sensibility that never quite lapses into mere parody, it's a pop-lover's delight from start to finish. --Jerry McCulley

This is a fun soundtrack. Most of the tracks are performed by Hugh Grant. I didn't know he could sing so well. My favorite track is Don't Write Me Off. This track shows off his talent as a singer and his skills on the piano. Way Back Into Love is another highlight on this soundtrack. Hugh performs this song as a duet two times on this CD with different partners, and they both sound very good to me. Pop Goes My Heart is an upbeat tune that gets me moving. Meaningless Kiss and Dance With Me Tonight are two other tracks that stand out. Hugh's voice has a romantic quality on these songs. Haley Bennett is the other surprise on this soundtrack. The songs Buddha's Delight and Entering Booty Town are very sensual. Music and Lyrics is the best movie soundtrack of 2007 so far.

Hugh Grant singing? Now that we know he can, lets discover some more of the gems on this beautiful new CD Release. "Music and Lyrics" has three highlights and heres what they are:

1. The lead single : "Way Back into Love" sung by Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. This playful version is the original film version and its just really exhilirating when you play this loud and sing along. I suspect this song was made simply for the purpose of people humming it all day long and breaking out into song at randoms spots of the day. Truly memorable and an instantly catchy pop ballad - this is actually better than most of the idiotic stuff clogging radio airwaves these days.

2. "Buddha's Delight" by Cora (Haley Bennett) : I just loved this character in the movie. She is a satiric amalgamation of Britney, Jessica, Mandy and Beyonce, all in one gratingly annoying package. However, this song (which is based on Britney's "Toxic" in terms of verse-chorus-verse) is very, very catchy, and its also the best thing on the record. You will be playing this all day long, and kids will love it too. I really like how every song on this record could have been a radio single, and this song is the lead candidate for it. In fact, this song is the reason why I bought this album, and why you should too

3. "POP Goes my Heart" - This exceptional 1980s-type pop song evokes the best bands of that era, primarily Duran Duran, A-Ha and Cutting Crew. What a song! This opens the album and let me tell you - its a single that you will remember ten years from now (fact!). Hugh Grant actually sings on this, and has never sounded better. This is my second favorite song on the record, and another reason you should get this!

This is a great companion soundtrack CD to MUSIC & LYRICS. The film's greatest asset was Hugh Grant' performance and his voice. That's what sold this film because it was genuine and sincere. In all Hugh Grant has a pretty good voice which is rather amusing as can be evidenced by this CD. The Haley Bennett songs are good as well and are rather sensually provocative. I like the cover of this CD which captures the spirit of the music and the movie and this CD is a lot of fun to listen as well.

I loved the movie and the songs. The chemistry between Hugh and

Drew is great. I rarely buy soundtracks from movies because

usually I hate some of the songs. These songs are really catchy

and fun to listen to. Hugh Grant does a great job especially since

he had to take lessons to sing, dance and play the piano for the part.

If he produced his own CD, I would gladly buy it and I will definitely

buy this CD. I highly recommend it.

I came looking just for a pleasant romantic comedy. It is more than pleasant, it is loving and kind and inspiring. It delivers fireworks and teary eyes of joy. It started off pleasant enough and then moved into many more levels. What a wonderful way to spend some time! Good music, good lyrics, good acting, good script adds up to a great movie!

Format: Audio CD
Although the music included on this CD is enjoyable, the disc is woefully short in length. The soundtrack clocks in at just under 39 minutes which, by today's standards, is very short. There was much more music in the film that could, and should, have been included on the CD. For instance, where are the "music and lyrics" to the two great songs prominently used in the movie's closing credits? America's "Work To Do" from their latest album "Here and Now", and another Haley Bennett tune entitled "Invincible" are glaring omissions on this disc. The consumer got seriously short-changed on this one.

The movie took me by surprise... despite the fact it had one of my favorite male actors in there, Hugh Grant, I was thinking this was just going to be one silly chick-flick that I'd have to sit through boringly and only went to make my fiancee happy. But as the movie rolled it's intro and I heard the head-bopping drum synthesization of some 80's song I'd never heard before but felt so familiar to... there it was, Hugh Grant singing with a bunch of other random guys, jamming out in some fictional 80's group named "PoP!" and I became enthralled with the movie and what a way it was to go.

ALl of the songs had Hugh singing in them and I was skeptical at first to see that it was really him who was singing all these, my fiancee thinking that he was dubbing to them as well but I kind of had faith in that Hugh was really singing them till I saw the credits, lo and behold, he really was performing each one on his own vocals. AMAZING! All of the songs sang in this movie were very well done in my opinion and have a wide range of variety despite the majority of them being sung by Hugh Grant and Haley Bennett, yet there was such a range it was mesmerizing.

You had your typical 80's pop sound, sort of like Duran Duran.

(Pop! Goes my Heart)

You had your Depeche Mode sounding groove.

(Dance With Me)

You had an Elton John type sound.

(Don't Write Me Off)

And then you have a great coupling of other sounds done by the Hugh.

The soundtrack is really great if you're looking into a sound that's new in a sense... yet old and familiar for all those great 80's lovers and fans not quite from the era.

This soundtrack is a must buy for the movie buffs but music enthusiasts alike.

Does anyone know what the song from the credits is?
People are asking that on the imdb.com website. Two of the responses for songs during the credits:

its Invincible by haley bennet (cora)

The one that was sung by America? It's called "Work to do" and it's on the "Here & Now" album.

Looking for a song in Music & Lyrics
