There are three groups of tracks on this "Music from 'Gilmore Girls,'" beginning with the one that includes the theme song, "Where You Lead I Will Follow," sung most appropriately by Carole King and her daughter Louise Goffin (odd that it is not the first track on the album but the eighth). Then there are the incidental themes that pop up in just about every episode written by Sam Phillip, all of which are labeled "cues." Now you know that the perky "la-la" song is called "Getting Married" and the slower one is "Waltz #1." I am not sure how to really describe the difference between "Maybe Next Week" and "Rory and Lane" in terms of "la-la" songs but they will be familiar as soon as you play them.Read more ›
With a name like "Gilmore Girls" and with a teenage daughter as one of the leads, you'd expect that the show would submerge itself in the latest artificial bubblegum pop group fad. That couldn't be further from the truth. Gilmore Girls is a show that embraces real music, especially indie music. This is a show where the characters love to dance to the latest XTC album, or sit around talking about Claudine Longet and Yoko Ono, or jump with joy when they get tickets to a Bangles concert. (And instead of coming up with some contrived reason for meeting the band, they just sit in the middle of the concert hall along with the rest of the audience. How's that for a TV show being original?)
This album is simply wonderful. Along with Sam Philip's lyrical musical cues from the show, it includes 20 great songs from such well-known and little-known groups as XTC, Joey Ramone (doing a wicked cover of a Louis Armstrong classic), Komeda, Slumber Party, Yo La Tengo, and Elastica. I have to admit that I had never heard of a lot of these groups prior to buying this CD, which I'm now kicking myself for. This CD will broaden your musical tastes, and it will make you appreciate some very underappreciated groups. As for myself, I plan on spending a lot of time in my local used record store looking for more from these groups.
And not enough can be said of the new recording Carole King did with daughter Louise Goffin of her classic Tapestry song, "Where You Lead I Will Follow.Read more ›

I'm a HUGE fan of Gilmore Girls and I'm all about promoting them, but honestly, this cd was a terrible soundtrack. I would have liked to hear more Troubadour music. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Lena Webb
