Product Description

Elf: Music From The Major Motion Picture

Amazon.com

It takes a pretty deft touch to make us believe towering Will Ferrell as a displaced human cum Santa's elf, Ed Asner as St. Nick and make a Christmas movie that's as loopy/sassy as it is seasonally sentimental. Yet that's what director Jon Favreau has done with this unlikely little holiday gem, and his hand-picked song score underscores its warm heart and comedic smarts with charm to burn. Suffused with a New York sense of traditional cool, Favreau turns his soundtrack into an upbeat secular Christmas classic, a sort of Swingers-Meet-Santa collection that convinces us that performances as diverse as Louis Prima's rousing take on "Pennies From Heaven" and the pumping soul of Billy Preston's "Nothing From Nothing" are as season-friendly as the performances of more traditional Christmas pop fare by Ella Fitzgerald, Jim Reeves, Eartha Kitt and Eddy Arnold they bookend. The edited Ferrante & Teicher/Les Baxter medley is a lounge-y inspiration, while a trio of laconic Leon Redbone crooners anchor the film's dizzy, if often bittersweet emotional foundations. Co-star Zooey Deschanel duets with Redbone on "Baby It's Cold Outside," her bluesy performance a welcome surprise that recalls nothing less than a young Peggy Lee. --Jerry McCulley

Who knew about the best kept secret in Hollywood? Zooey Deschanel has an amazing voice and it's worth getting just for the duet of Baby, It's Cold Outside. Like a young Judy Garland/Ella. Here is to hearing more from this untapped talent. Why they just didn't use her and Will Ferrell's duet from the movie I don't know. By the way the movie is FANTASTIC!!!! I'm going to see it again. An instant Christmas Classic.

Zooey Deschanel, the gorgeous actress from movies like well..."Elf" "Almost Famous" "The Good Girl" and "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" is easily worth the price of this CD alone. Why she doesn't cut an entire album is beyond me, judging from the reviews of this CD a lot of people would buy it. She has a very sexy, kind of classic voice. This CD isn't that bad, as far as the other songs on it; Christmas classics you know. But, it wouldn't be the same without her.

1. Louis Prima "Pennies from Heaven"-5/5-A very jazzy/swingy song. It's really catchy though.

2. Ella Fitzgerald "Sleigh Ride"-5/5-I love this song and I love the way Ella Fitzgerald sings it.

3. Lena Home "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow"-4/5-I like this song but I'm not a big fan of how Home sings the song.

4. Ferrante and Teicher/Les Baxter "Sleigh Ride/Santa Claus Party"-5/5-The first part is an instrumental version of "Sleigh Ride". The second part is

"Santa Claus Party" which is a funny christmas song which is damn cool.

5. Zooey Deschanel & Leon Redbone "Baby It's Cold Outside"-5/5-This is a really cool song and Zooey Deschanel has a gorgeous voice. It was for Deschanel that I bought this album. Her voice is flawless and she sings this beautifully. I wish she would get into the studio and cut an album.

6. Jim Reeves "Jingle Bells"-4/5-It's Jingle Bells. Nothing more to say really.

7. Brian Setzer "Nutcracker Suite"-5/5-Very well done instrumental. Too long though.

8. Leon Redbone "Christmas Island"-5/5-I had never heard this song before, but it's pretty interesting.

9. Eartha Kitt "Santa Baby"-5/5-This song cracks me up. I've heard this song countless times, but I never bothered to check out the lyrics.

This seems to be pretty much just reviews of Zooey's voice, I'll put down my two cents on the actual CD...not just one track.
If you're into jazz/swing style music, and you're looking for a good Christmas album, this is it. Reall good strong songs all the way through. They aren't all christmas songs, but it's still one darn good CD.
I'd suggest it to anyone who wnats a little swing in their Christmas step.

This album is great and keeps the christmas spirit alive. The song that is playing when they run into Gimble's and jump on the bed, is "What Christmas Means To Me" - Stevie Wonder. Just letting anyone else know what it is so they don't go crazy looking Like I did.

I was disappointed that this album didn't include all of the music from the movie, some of the music I like the best is missing -- I should have read the tracks more carefully before I bought.

It doesn't include Stevie Wonder's "What Christmas Means to Me," which is one reason I bought the album. It does include a few gems though, such as "Pennies from Heaven." Great tune!

I'm not one who goes all out at Christmas, I think it's so exploited these days that I tend to hold out on the Christmas spirit as long as possible. So last Tuesday I got THIS CD and decided I'd listen to it before work. In fact, I listened to the CD twice so by the time I was at work I was gone. Let's just say the next day a lot of people in my office questioned who cut out and pasted all the snowflakes. I haven't made paper snowflakes in like 14 years. Coincidence? I don't think so. I just recommend you have some Christmas decorations or at least a lot of white paper and scissors around before you start listening to this CD, that's all I'm sayin'!

I love Christmas music and this collection is especially fun and charming! Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne's voices are so true that the old classics sound "fresh". Zooey Deschanel performs an appealing and sultry rendition of "Baby, It's Cold Outside".

It's a wonderfully upbeat holiday CD!

Elf is a Christmas classic at our house. One of those movies we try to take out of rotation until the holidays come around and then it takes the stage for family movie nights with A Christmas Story, National Lampoon Christmas, Rudolph, Frosty etc around Thanksgiving and through New Years. The kids love it. Having the soundtrack for such a popular family holiday film means that we can take throw it in the car and have music that the kids enjoy with a context they can relate to as well. It's great for quick trips to the market or on long holiday drives to see friends and family out of town.

On the off chance that you have been living under a rock for the last decade or so, I echo the other comments that Zooey Deschanel has a FANTASTIC voice. It's more than a little disappointing that Wil Ferrell isn't accompanying her on the "Baby It's Cold outside" track, but the music is great and this is a holiday album worth owning in my humble opinion.
