Biography

On his Nonesuch debut, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, singer/songwriter Robert Plant bookends an album of brilliantly realized original material with two versions of the haunting bluegrass tune “Little Maggie,” popularized in the mid-’40s by the Stanley Brothers. In the Stanley Brothers’ hands, the song is mournful yet stoic as the narrator vows to leave for ... Read more in Amazon's Robert Plant Store

Product Description

New tracks from Brooke Valentine, Beyonce, Keith Sweat and a collaboration by Ray J and R. Kelly will lead the soundtrack for the made-in-Chicago film 'Roll Bounce'. Valentine's Jazze Pha-produced cover of the '70s favorite 'Boogie Oogie Oogie' featuring Fabolous and YoYo will be the set's first single. Beyonce tackles Rose Royce's 'Wishing on a Star', while Keith Sweat puts his stamp on the Intruders' 'I Wanna Know Your Name'. Ray J and Kelly contribute the new song 'Quit Actin', while Destiny's Child's Michelle Williams reworks Al Green's classic 'Let's Stay Together.' Sanctuary. 2005.

When a pop song soundtrack truly captures the essence of a movie, you know a lot of care went into the cut selection. It's a cinch that something like a Cameron Crowe soundtrack is always going to pass the test, but what a delightful surprise that Roll Bounce offers such a charming and witty set that's entirely in keeping with the movie's own enchanting spirit. The mix is about equally divided between straight period tunes (Roll Bounce unfolds in and around the '70s roller-disco craze) and updates of classics from the era. The old numbers are all winners that, again, seem chosen with loving consideration both for appropriateness to the scenes they accompany as well as for the attention they deserved (though may not have received) at the time. In addition to Chic's ubiquitous "Le Freak," lesser-known '70s gems include the funky soul of Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "Superman Lover," and the wistful groove of Bill Wither's languorous, superproduced ballad, "Lovely Day." Some of the updates: an overly-boogified version of Kool and the Gang's "Hollywood Swingin'" with Jason Kay of Jamiroquai doing his best Kool impersonation. To keep the contemporary crowd happy, Keith Sweat is represented with the lush ballad "I Wanna Know Your Name." And there's a hotter-than-ever cover of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" from Michelle Williams. Beyonce also makes an appearance with her loving cover of the ethereal, "Wishin' On a Star." The least successful "update" is a distinctively 21st century reimagining of the disco mainstay "Boogie Oogie Oogie," which gains little from the combo of house-rap and crooning by Brook Valentine, Fabolous, and Yo Yo. But in essence, Roll Bounce is a terrific mix of old, new, and some stuff in between that makes a perfect companion to the film.--Ted Fry

Customer Reviews

The originals should have been used then 'add in' the newer versions.

The reason I ordered the soundtrack was for the actual music in the movie, not a different version (ie.

Since the movie was so good, you'd think the soundtrack would be too, right?

The movie "Roll Bounce" has close to thirty songs playing though out it. So why does this lame soundtrack have less than half of those songs on it? What happened to KC & The Sunshine Band?, Donna Summer?, The Ohio Players?, Sister Sledge?, The Commordores?, Samantha Sang?, Heart? and a host of other artists heard in the film but nowhere to be found on the soundtrack!!!

Since the movie was so good, you'd think the soundtrack would be too, right? Wrong! Dead wrong!

Though I wasn't born in the 70s, I've heard plenty of music from that time (we pretty much play all of that, and then some in my house). My parents pretty much stick to the oldies, unless we make them hear something new that sounds like a throwback (like Alicia Keys, for example).

My mom went to go pick up the soundtrack, thinking it was gonna sound like most of the tracks in the movie. She was mad that it was mostly remakes, and then demanded me to download all the songs off the movie and called it the "authentic soundtrack."

I do agree with another reviewer though--you were better off listing the songs from the movie and getting iTunes or LimeWire to get the songs you heard, because with the exception of some of the original songs on this CD, the rest are remakes.

If you're gonna re-create the mood of the 70s through a movie, at least have the music to go along with it!

I'm an avid channel surfer and when I came across this movie on cable I locked on and enjoyed the rest of the movie. It's a good movie and the memories of my youth just poured over me.

I'm 37 now and grew up with roller skating rinks all over town...racing my friends with those cheesy rental skates, wiping out in my attempt to jump out onto the rug at hair blowing speeds, pigging out on pizza and wasting quarters on Space Invaders...all while these 70's classics are blasting overhead through giant speakers.
God, I miss those days....:o(

But the soundtrack is a calamity. A big lie. Soundtracks should be just that....sound (music) tracks from the movie. Not a lame attempt of new artists butchering these classic jams. It's not really the artists' fault but the creators of the CD. They must have realized that they were scamming us. I feel like I've been ripped off, in a major way.

Luckily, I have the "Boogie Nights" CD so I can cleanse myself of these wretched cover tunes.

(Beyonce, you're still pretty damn sweet, though)

I, for one, will be assembling the REAL versions of these songs -- as heard in the film -- off iTunes rather than shell out for new versions from current (bland) artists.

when they decided NOT 2 include the actual songs used in the movie? I thought that's what makes a MOVIE SOUNDTRACK. I rushed 2 see the movie w/my girlfriends, and LOVED it. The music of this era (my personal favorite, btw) took me back 2 those days where life in general was more 'fun' than what the kids of 2day are experiencing.

The music of this era was fun; it made u wanna dance, and was the absolute BEST kind 4 the skating rinks. I bought the soundtrack in anticipation of hearing those songs and reliving what I consider the best years of my life.

Stuck that bad boy in my CD player, ready 2 get my groove on, and ... hold up ... wait a minute! STOP THE MUSIC! WHAT IN THE HELL IS THIS MESS??? WHO'S SINGIN' BOOGIE OOGIE OOGIE?!? And PLEASE, will some1 PLEASE, PUH-LEEEZE stop Beyonce from remaking another damned song?!? Just STOP it, already--sheesh!

I gave the thing 1 star 4 the 3 or 4 original songs they did decide 2 include. Needless 2 say, I'm not a happy camper about the way they duped people in2 believing this was a 'movie soundtrack'. I want my $$$ back!!! Can we sue the company 4 false advertisement?!?

I'm totally blown ...

P***ed off old school lover.
