Product Description

Wild Thornberrys ~ The Wild Thornberrys Movie

Amazon.com

Eliza Thornberry and her simian pal Darwin take on an African safari, evil poachers, and a London boarding school in Eliza's big-screen debut. That's quite a tall order for a 12-year-old--and a movie soundtrack--to handle, but like the dynamic tween, The Wild Thornberrys Movie delivers. Youssou N' Dour and Sting, Angelique Kidjo with Dave Matthews and Las Hijas del Sol contribute world music celebrations flavored with exotic percussion and soulful vocals, while Baha Men skid around on the manic pace of reggae-pop with "Accident." Paul Simon's jungle-folk-tinged "Father and Daughter" is more traditional rock, as is the Pretenders' cheerfully uptempo cover of Intaferon's 1980s obscurity "Get Out of London," and Peter Gabriel's "Animal Nation," which harkens to the throbbing guitar electronics found on his 1992 album Us. Even the teen pop-centric tracks are high quality--Nick Carter's sunny keyboard nugget and Sita's irresistible "Happy." Appealing to kids and adults both, without pandering to either crowd, The Wild Thornberrys Movie is an enjoyable delight through and through. --Annie Zaleski

I had previously heard very little about the Wild Thornberrys, but when I saw the tracklisting for this particular soundtrack, I knew it was a must-have. Unlike far too many soundtracks which often have one or two memorable songs, this one has at least a good handful. Paul Simon starts it off with "Father and Daughter", his first soundtrack contribution in almost a decade. The remix of Peter Gabriel's "Shaking the Tree" is decent, though not as good as the original or even the 1997 remix from the film Jungle 2 Jungle. Wes' "Awa Awa" is a touching African tune which would fit right in The Lion King. Also appearing on this diverse soundtrack are new songs featuring artists such as P. Diddy, Sting, and the Baha Men. My favorite track by far is Peter Gabriel's "Animal Nation", a fascinating, atmospheric song inspired by Gabriel's studies of bonobo apes and their intelligence. Though I have yet to see the film, I highly recommend this soundtrack, as it is easily one of 2002's best.

I listen to this sequence 1,2,7,8,9,12 and 14; and repeat it because this is by far some of the best music from 2002 we can listen to forever.2003 Still kickin it up! Buy this disc and have a happy day. It's sort of a King Sunny Ade' feel with cool vocals and rhythms and bass. Oh, by-the-way, the rest of the cd is hip too. And Sting is un-mistakable, Paul Simon is Me and Hulio meets Graceland. Dave Mathews' acoutic style will have you wanting more; and by-far the best Reel Big Fish, ska tune and the Baja Men are killer on Accident. Awa Awa by Wes is true to heart and the Pretenders tune is a surprise and more! Buy this soundtrack and call your local dj to play this on the radio.

I have a 4-year old son who fell in love with the Thornberry's when this film came out. One of the problems that I have with most kid films is that the music is less than desireable. I went to see this film, ready to be just as annoyed as with the others.
Nice to hear how wrong I was.
I loved the film and I loved the soundtrack just as much, if not more. The list of artists for this project is amazing: Peter Gabriel, Sting, Dave Matthews, Paul Simon, and Rusted Root just to name a few. the whole album is well produced, not one of those typical crappy "look we have kids singing kids songs and they're sooooo cute!"
ugh.
My son and I have spent hours listening to this cd in the car, wherever we go. The Peter Gabriel tune, "Animal Nation" is one of the best songs he's put together in over 10 years. A real treat for sure.
The music producers put together a smart list of artists who put out some smart, original pieces for this film. I love this compilation and I heartily recommend it to all.
Pick it up, you won't be disappointed.

Good movie, great soundtrack. I write this following the third week or so that my 2 1/2 year old daughter and I have listened to songs 14, 1, & 2 in sequence at least once a day. Think World Cafe or Putamayo Music Hour for kids. It's a very ecclectic mix of styles and artists, highlighted by one of Paul Simon's strongest efforts. Roll down the windows, feel the breeze, and sing along w/ your kids.

This is the best soundtrack ever!I only bought it for Paul Simon's Father and Daughter but then I heard the dutch duo Sita sing "Happy" it has to be the best song ever! Don't worry it's in English she sings songs in both English and Dutch. Both versions are good.

I can't believe Amazon has this filed under "Children's Music". There is some great stuff on here! Peter Gabriel's "Animal Nation" is one of the most insightful songs of this century and needs to be heard. It's incredible that it's only available on this CD. I don't like labeling songs "important", but if ever any song deserved that label, "Animal Nation" is one.

Then there's Paul Simon's "Father and Daughter". Apparently the version on this CD is a unique mix that is only available on this CD. It is a touching song that makes a great choice to be played for the father & daughter dance at a wedding reception. This is far from your usual 'children's music'.

Those two songs make this CD worth getting. Everything else is a bonus.
