I know most people here want to know more about where to find Sarah Bolger's ethereal version of Desperado. I did some research and I found an interview done by filmireland.net which asked Sarah the all important question: WILL THE SONG EVER GET RELEASED?
Sadly, Sarah's answer is "There is a chance it might be released further down the line, but I'm not sure I'm not sure"; however, the interview did mention that DJs in Ireland have been playing the song there. So if we all call into our favorite radio stations, we could create a "Jerry Maguire" phenomenon and speed up this song's release!
Here is the snipet from the interview regarding the song:
FI: I want to ask you Sarah about the song Desperado, which I think was one of the most moving moments in the film. How did it come about that you sang the song?
SB: You're the first person to ask me about that. It started off with both of us, we were meant to sing a song for our parents in the film and Emma was supposed to sing either Desperado or a song by U2. And then it changed over to me...
EB: Yeah but how did it change over to you that's what I want to know?
SB: Jim had heard some kids singing a version of the song.
FI: Was it Canadian kids, from the Langley Schools project?
SB: Yeah it was - and he just loved it, the idea just came form there. Jim gets ideas from all over the place. I was brought out to Gavin [Friday], Maurice [Seezer] and Bono and we recorded it together.
FI: And you got to sing the song live on The Late Late Show tribute to Jim, how was that experience?
SB: Brilliant, I was only on for a few minutes but it was great fun. To tell you the truth I was so nervous going on live, I've never sang in front of a live audience.

I can't believe that "Desperado" as sung by Sarah Bolger isn't on this soundtrack -- it's a terrible shame. I would've bought this CD just for that track, but alas, it's not on the CD. How about a CD single?

A word of warning is due. I don't own this CD yet, but I may buy it if the price comes down (any good and worthy CD that is cheap enough will always be worth buying!) or when the missing two tracks are inserted into it. I've heard a few of the 15 tracks (from various sources) and they are quite good, but I would really like to see the two tracks to make it even better.

However, there is a partial answer to the problem of Sarah Bolger's missing track. If you goto [...] you can download the "DVD" version of her rendition of "Desperado" on mp3. It goes for 2:10 and is copied off the DVD but is encoded at 192kbps and at 44kHz. It is a 3.1MB download.

It is a pity in day and age that people have to do this. Record companies complain of illegal downloading of music but if they don't give the people what they want, I can understand why people want to do it!

I'm lucky. I only got interested in the movie after doing extensive internet research into the "Innocence & Despair" CD and finding a strong association in many articles. So, I've never had the problem of missing Sarah Bolger's fine singing effort!

And, if you miss the Lovin' Spoonful's "Do You Believe In Magic?", simply buy the "Parent Trap" soundtrack. (The movie that stars Lindsay Lohan!)

I now own this CD. I brought in on March 21, 2006 for a very cheap price at a retail store (it was 66% off normal price!) and it is quite good for what I paid for it. It still needs the missing two tracks to make really, really good.

If you ever watched Audrey Hepburn sing "Moon River" on Breakfast at Tiffany, you'll realize that no matter what professional singer sings that song, no one can match the same raw expression as Audrey. Sarah's rendition of Desperado is just as captivating.
I've must have listened to the original version from the Eagles hundreds of times, but never paid attentioned to the words... until that moment. When I first watched Sarah sing "Desperado" in the movie, I was so moved. I actually bought the DVD primarily for that one segment when she sings the song.
I agree with the other review that mentioned that the movie producers were not really watching the same movie as the rest of us. How can they listen to Sarah sing Desperado AND NOT automatically want to put it as a track on the Soundtrack? We all love this song!!!
I really hope the producers of the Soundtrack review all of our comments and Desperado on the next production of the CD. Just like Sarah sang in the movie, "You've better let somebody love you... before it's too late."

I have to say this movie was my favorite of last year and the soundtrack is beautiful. I have to comment on the desparado song, it made me cry. The song on the langley school cd however is NOT the same one. It doesn't even sound close. I have been trying to find the Sarah bolger version all over the internet but so far no such luck. Whenever i find it I will let you all know. I do recommend this movie and soundtrack to everyone.

hey folks out there ....ingnore what you see on the reviews of this incredible cd . youve got to be kidding ??? buy this moving cd of music !!! just because that song sung by the girl is not on there and you dont buy ...so what!! its not that great. the rest of the soundtrack is haunting and beautiful as well as tis first rate motion picture.....just when you think there is nothing good out there, here comes this movie ...my girl friend rented it the other night and i was blown away by the acting and incredible story of survival and discovery in this great country, anyways buy this lovely score and be grateful movies and music in combination is still being made like this. this rates with magnificent movies like " life is beautiful " " the straight story " " sling blade " and " the grapes of wrath " . again beautiful music.
