Don't get me wrong; this cd has excellent songs and even included ones I never even thought would be on the cd. My only complaint is that they include a shortened version of Maybe. Then don't sing the second verse of the song. You never hear "betcha he reads, betcha she sews, maybe she's made me a closet of clothes..." and the climatic end of the song. My 4 year old and I were both so disappointed that this was done. I can't image they were short on space on the cd. My daughter and I sing that verse all the time and we couldn't believe when we put the cd in, played the song, and then it ended so abruptly. I just don't understand. Other than that, the song selection is awesome and this version of the movie was by far the best made.

As a recovering "Annie" addict, I'd say that this soundtrack is easily the best recording of all the "Annie" soundtracks available. Though the vocal arrangements aren't as stellar as the ones on the OBC's recording, the orchestral arrangements are amazing.

Take "It's the Hard-Knock Life" for example. The other recordings can't hold a candle to this one, as they don't have the extensive dance breaks.

Carol Burnett's portrayal as the drunken villian Miss Hannigan is just as hilarious on the soundtrack as it is with the movie itself. The woman is a genius.

I grew up watching the movie version of 'Annie' and thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, one of my first songs to sing as a child was 'Tomorrow'. My father taught it to me when I was 2 years old and I can hear myself on tape they recorded.
I was diagnosed with the disease Neurofibromatosis at the age of 4 and was told I had six months left to live. I am now 26 years old and I am lucky to be here. Anyway, Make a Wish Foundation found out about me and asked what I wanted. Of all the things a little girl could ask for, I wanted to see the musical Annie on stage. Although I don't remember the musical itself, it still left an impact on me. The song 'Tomorrow' still tugs at my heart strings and it still gives me hope for another Tomorrow.

I had my Great Grampy's car given to me a year ago and, being an older car, it has a cassette player. Annie was the first cassette I bought for my car and I was not disappointed! It shipped quickly, works well and I am able to enjoy it. Thank you!

Want a great Annie recording? This is tops.

If you haven't seen the Aileen Quinn - Albert Finney - Carole Burnett version of Annie, well, this is the time to correct that. Order the DVD and watch. But don't forget to buy this CD of the songs. They are so much better than the iTunes or Amazon MP3 versions (which don't have this version of Annie!). But remember, you can get a copy here and then make an MP3 (rip) for your iTunes or Amazon or Play library. Well, worth it!

Pros and Cons:

Cons first:
The songs are not perfectly in order with the movie order... they are all there, but there are a few (only one I noticed) order problems. The Movie starts (after Tomorrow intro) with the song, "Maybe" ... a deeply moving song about Annie finding parents. The CD has this song second, after Hard Knock Life. Uggh. Come on Columbia records! Really?

UPDATE: I recently discovered why there are these little glitches (like the reversed order above). The Movie went way over budget and way over time. They had to scrap the initial scene (which included Sandy walking through the city and the radio playing the original Hubert Hoover song from stage production). This left then "It's a Hard Knock Life" as the opening song (after Tomorrow intro). I am not sure what else was originally there, but this Soundtrack was produced with that order. Then the director called a big (and successful) change and started the show with Annie singing "Maybe" That is why the order doesn't match. The slight lyric discrepancy comes from this issue too.

As with many soundtracks, the songs have been "cleaned". By that I mean we don't hear the slight movements and steps that are part of the original soundtrack of the movie.

The songs are the same as the ones on the movie. It included all of the ones my three year old loves most. I can not wait to see her reaction to this Christmas gift.
Sound quality is not like CDs from new artists, but CDs did not exist when the movie was released in the early 80s (30 years ago!). I was just thrilled to have the music in a format I could play at home.

I have been a huge fan of this movie ever since I was little. I have always loved the songs and finally decided to purchase the soundtrack. I hope my children enjoy these songs as much as I do! I do wish the extended version of "Maybe" would have been included on this soundtrack, but that is my only complaint.

Everybody on this cd is great! They should put the songs in order that they were in the movie. That's the only problem. Other than that, everything's great. Aileen Quinn is a unique Annie! She was a cute little girl. She should have continued her career. Carol Burnette is The best Ms. Hannagin. The cast is great for their roles. Buy this cd!
