A very surprising soundtrack, with firsts by a few female artists
A cd I actually think I may have wore out

"This is such a great cd, where do I start? It goes from rockin' blues of Bonnie Raitt. To the rock of Chrissie Hynde with The Pretenders, who I have been a long fan of. Then to the excellent voice and range of Annie Lennox, who I think has got to have one of the most wonderful voices around. Joan Armatrading, I saw her in concert many many moons ago in Germany. She was not known then in America and she was as good then as she is now. There is not a bad song on this CD, and that says something this day and age. I plug this CD in when I need some umph to get started doing what ever I need to get done. When I need a pick-me-up get me in a better mood. Or just whenever... and want to hear some good music."
A solid collection of new songs and classic hits

"The years are rolling along and I am still listening to this original soundtrack album, which has the virtue that these songs are actually in the movie. I would agree the soundtrack is better than the film, but you have to appreciate that the album includes the memorably moving moment when Whoopi Goldberg signs "You Got It" because Mary-Louise Parker does not have the strength to continue. This is still one of my favorite love songs. As with most such collections, for me the standout tracks are those I cannot get anywhere else, which includes: Bonnie Raitt's cover of Roy Orbison's "You Got It" (which is both the first and last track on the album in an interesting bookend effect), Melissa Etheridge's "I Take You With Me" (the song that is actually used at the end of the film), and Steve Nicks's "Somebody Stand By Me" (written by Sheryl Crow and Todd Wolf). "Boys on the Side" remains one of the best soundtrack collections of the 1990s and is certainly evocative of the film."
