Moonlighting- What was missing

(3 out of 5 stars)
"The music selections included are all 5 stars, especially "Blue Moon" and "I told Ya I love ya, know get out," however my problem isn't with what was included but rather whats missing from thgis soundtrack. The whole album, on a little over 30 minutes in length, has lots of room left for some major music from Monnlighting that's missing. First and foremostwhere is the original version of the theme song. The original version of the Moonlighting theme features in the 1985 to 1987 seasons is jazzy and fun, not that the pop version is any less, but there is no reason why it shouldn't have been included. Second, where are songs like the Ronette's "Be My LItle Baby" from "I Am Curios Maddie" when Maddie and David finally quench their passion. How about Billie Joel's "Big Man On Mulburrey Street" from the episode of the same name? Also, what also detracts from the album is the lack of any off the shows beatiful music, or the haunting piano selctions used for the "dramatic" moments. That music played such a major role that the soudtrack seems vacant without it. I think that maybe the shows producer, (and albums) Glen Gordon Caron rushed this album out to cash in when Moonlightinh was at its hottest. All in all a good album, but there should be alot more to it."

"Christopher has summed up my major compaint with this CD. While the "Moonlighting Theme" makes it worth buying alone, I would give anything to have the instrumental music that accompanied David and Maddie's angsty moments (it was played a lot in season three). I was also surprised that "Be My Baby" was not included, since Moonlighting fans probably most associate that song with that famous Moonlighting scene. I will give it fours stars, however, because it does have some good ones like "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Stormy Weather." It is a little disappointing though because it could have been better (but hey, so could Moonlighting's fourth and fifth seasons)."
