Editorial Reviews

As portrayed by Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, the romantic antagonists in Nora Ephron's e-mail age remake of Ernst Lubitsch's classic The Shop Around the Corner are variously witty, annoying, urbane, and self-absorbed. That's just the recipe for a frisky musical score, and George Fenton delivers with style (even the "annoying" part is playful here) and just a tip of the hat to the early ragtime and other Americana influences of Randy Newman at his best. The classic Arlen-Harburg "Over the Rainbow" is a recurring motif, and the album also features a wistful Gordon Jenkins arrangement sung by the late, great Harry Nilsson. The singer's beautiful "Remember" is also featured, his two-decades-old performance interpolated into a new arrangement by Fenton. Drama is easy, the old maxim goes, comedy is hard; and nothing is harder to convincingly score than a romantic comedy. Fenton does a fine job of it here. --Jerry McCulley

4.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted and unassuming; very nice June 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Pleasant" is perhaps the best word to describe this score. You probably won't remember much of what you've heard after you turn the CD player off, but you'll have a smile on your face while you listen to it. Lots of nice, jazz-inflected piano work here; it's a very intimate and lighthearted 31 minutes of music (yes, it's barely half an hour). Finishes with a beautiful vocal rendition by Harry Nilsson of a beautiful song, "Over the Rainbow." Perfect for reading a book on a lazy Sunday afternoon (preferably from Meg Ryan's bookstore!).

The soundtrack is like the movie: sweet, fun, uplifting, surprises around every corner, and worth enjoying many times. My older relatives adore it, and even still, I love it too, though most of the music is from an era other than my own, that is a testament to it's timelessness. I only regret the songs in the movie that were not included on the soundtrack, especially Never Smile at a Crocodile, sung by the Paulette Sisters. What a fun song right up there with the Puppy Song -- fresh, one I now sing to my children. So what if not every song is written with a homogenous audience in mind! This soundtrack is delightful!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Album January 27, 2000
By James
Format:Audio CD
The music in this album is wonderful. George Fenton brilliantly turns Kathleen Kelly's and Joe Fox's words and actions into music. When listening to the score you will easily picture the movie in your mind. The only downfall of this album is, it is way too short - just over 30min. Someone should have put both of the You've Got Mail soundtracks together on one album for a complete YGM experience. However, this light soundtrack is a must have for any collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the trouble April 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is the filler music from the film. The background compositions the editor uses for transitions without dialog and occasionally under dialog. The absence of such music is what distinguishes an "English Movie" for people my age. It's pleasant music, and occasionally lively as befits the film, but not worth the trouble to buy as a separate CD.
The CD "You've Got Mail" (as opposed to "M@il" in this title) provides the eclectic mix of vocals from several performers that complement the actors' performances so well in this movie. Get that one, skip this one -- and watch the movie again to see if you can spot when these cuts are edited in behind the action. That's the best way to listen to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fenton's finest: feels like dancing
If you don't know the movie, don't worry. This score can do without. Not that 'You've got m@il' is bad, on the contrary: it's a great comedy. Read more
