Product Description

High Fidelity ~ Soundtrack

Amazon.com

Nick Hornby's novel about a middle-aged, obsessive record-store owner and his struggle with growing up in an adult world indifferent to the finer points of soul music was a sharp commentary on life, love, and a decades-long affair with popular music. If any movie has to have a decent soundtrack it's this one. And it does. Perhaps a little light on soul (Stevie Wonder is a hip pick, but how about Arthur Alexander or even Otis Redding?), it specializes in cult and indie bands that should be familiar to many. The Velvet Underground, Love, the 13th Floor Elevators, and the Kinks honor the old school, while Royal Trux, Stereolab, and Smog represent the newest wave. Elvis Costello appears with a strong pick from an odd era (early '80s), and his greatest imitator, John Wesley Harding, is featured as well. This probably should have been a box set--you end up wanting more.--Rob O'Connor

A number of reviewers have voiced concern over the song selection compared to the movie. The biggest reason that all the songs in the movie do not appear on the CD would probably have to do with licensing costs. So, choosing a selection of songs for the cd becomes quite like the process that John Cusack's character goes through when making a tape for someone. Define the audience: Moviegoers who enjoyed the movie and the music, but are not avid record collectors. Main song selection criteria: Balance the familiar names (Kinks, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello) with the less familiar (13th Floor Elevators, Smog, Royal Trux). Enter personal bias: Stevie Wonder vs. Otis Redding, 2 Velvet Underground songs, 3 Drag City Records (Chicago based recording label) related artists (Stereolab, Smog, Royal Trux). And of finally, of course, make sure that the whole thing flows to help keep you from reaching for the 'skip' button.

There are some great songs on this soundtrack, some of which I'd never heard before. I was also excited to see that one of my all-time favorite songs, "Oh! Sweet Nuthin'" by The Velvet Underground was included. It's one of rock's perfect songs and deserves the attention. The fact that everyone will argue about what songs are included or excluded here is completely appropriate given the themes in the movie/book. Everyone feels passionately about the music they love and thinks everybody else is insane. That's exactly how it should be.

Well, okay, I guess "High Fidelity" proves the worth of its own existence every time someone writes one of these reviews. And at the risk of getting laughed out of Championship Vinyl, permit me to add my two cents' worth to this page.
For my money this soundtrack more than amply serves to showcase a goodly cross-section of the film's amazing breadth of music. From Love, the 13th Floor Elevators and the Velevet Underground (2, count 'em, songs!) to gems like Stereolab's "Lo Boob Oscillator", Royal Trux and the Beta Band. What's not to like?
I'm sure there's something I'd like to see here that went missing, but I'm so delighted with this collection, who needs to argue?
The inclusion of Jack Black's wonderful rendition of "Let's Get it On" is absolutely inspired.
