Product Description

Romeo & Juliet ~ Soundtrack

Amazon.com

Like the movie itself, the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack is filled with emotional twists; from the hardness of Garbage's "#1 Crush" and the Butthole Surfers' "Whatever" to Stina Nordenstam's endearing, whispery "Little Star" the journey is all over the map. Within the CD-enhanced grooves, however, moments of absolute brilliance flow; Des'ree's "Kissing You (Love Theme from Romeo + Juliet)" is perhaps her strongest work to date, while Radiohead's "Talk Show Host" is a track that the group treasures and performs live often. Those two tracks alone make this soundtrack worth the purchase price. --Denise Sheppard

Romeo + Juliet is THE best soundtrack I've ever owned.
"mediamystic"
Almost every song is great, and this is a CD you will want to hold on to- I know because I have had it for a really long time. :)

You will especially like this soundtrack if you enjoyed the movie, which I did.

Although I like Volume 2 better, this soundtrack is the one that most "Romeo + Juliet" aficionados will want to own. This soundtrack is the one with all the complete songs on it, including some really great songs by some great artists.
Garbage's "#1 Crush" is a pop-goth song that stays true to the feel of the movie, and "Young Hearts, Run Free" is a great techno song by Kym Mazelle. I can't stand to hear "Lovefool" by the Cardigans one more time, but for many, it might be the highlight of the album. "Little Star" by Stina Nordenstam is a trippy minimalist delight, and "You and Me Song" by the Wannadies is one of those pieces of pop fluff you think you heard in "So I Married an Axemurderer" and not "Romeo + Juliet".
The tracks I mostly appreciate, and that make the album worth checking out are: "Kissing You" by Des'ree (the love theme of the movie, and a truly beautiful sappy romantic song), "Everybody's Free" by vocal dynamo Quindon Tarver (I was shocked when I saw that this album didn't include Tarver's performance of Prince's "When the Doves Cry" but then it was released shortly after on Volume 2), and "Talk Show Host" by Radiohead (in their pre-OK Computer days).
All the other songs make the CD part of your complete soundtrack experience. If you want to own the pop songs that gave this movie a lot of its amazing audio depth, then get this CD.

Romeo + Juliet is THE best soundtrack I've ever owned. It does envoke a very specific mood...but you can definitely let it all out when you're singing along with this. There is a sense of darkness throughout, lightening at times, but ever present.
For the most part, the album is upbeat. "Young Hearts Run Free" may even provoke a smile. The real treasure lies in the dark reality of songs like "Local God", "Whatever", and "To You I Bestow" (arguably THE best song on this album). "Kissing You" is a wonderful love song, appropriately placed, and "Little Star" provides a calming lift after the turmoil of the rest of the album.
This album is unquestionably a must for anyone who shows even a remote interest in music. Romeo + Juliet is a tool to help you deal with the chaos that is life.

Another old favorite of mine, this soundtrack combines many different styles of music. Garbage, which is one of my favorite groups, appears on the very first track with their now-famous "#1 Crush" (Think: "I would die for you, I would die for you...".) And this is also the CD that made the Cardigan's "Lovefool" (Think: "Love me, love me, say that you love me...") a hit. Des'ree's romantic "Kissing You" will remind you of everything the Romeo and Juliet legacy stands for, and other songs such as Kim Myzelle's "Young Hearts Run Free" and the Wannadie's "You and Me Song" will make even the shyest among you start dancing! Mundy's "To You I Bestow" is very romantic and noble. This is not one of those soundtracks with one good song worth listening to and the rest throw-away-able. Almost every song is great, and this is a CD you will want to hold on to- I know because I have had it for a really long time. :)

Baz's masterpiece that was Romeo and Juliet was heavy on the mainstream MTV vibe and so justly so is the soundtrack to go along with it. Starting off on a great note with "#1 Crush" by Garbage this soundtrack serves the best track here right off the bat. Followed up nicely by Everclears "LOcal God" one of my personal favorite Everclear songs. Everclear was prime choice for a track here since they were, at the time, standing tall on the success of their "Afterglow" album. One Inch Punch serves a great track with "Pretty Piece of Flesh" which is sported in one of the films most memerable scenes. Not a Butthole Surfers fan but there track here is a standout, believe it or not. Things are slowed down with "Angel" a beautiful song that brings to mind memories of Claire Danes in her costume and the slow yet soulful "KIssing You" by Des'ree is welcome. Radio Heads "Talk show Host" is great but it's the closing "You and Me Song" that stands out above all, mostly because it doesn't seem to fit with the vibe of the CD, but it's escused because it's such a great song. I cant think of a bad track here, everyone is worth listening to...Highly Highly recomended!

I liked the movie, but never really get too worked up over it. I walked into my friends room and he was playing a CD, and it kept playing songs I had heard before and liked, I asked if he had burned it, he said it was the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack. I was surprised to hear it actually, I didn't remember the soundtrack being this good. It really is excellent. From The Cardigans to Radiohead, it's all pretty good pop rock music. I especially love Talk Show Host by Radiohead and #1 Crush by Garbage. There are a few weak links, but that doesn't matter, the overwhelming majority of the material is worthwhile. Definitely worth a listen.
