AWFUL AS A PARTY DISC, EVEN WORSE AS A SOUNDTRACK...

"Let's start off by stating that the word SOUNDTRACK should *not* be appearing on the cover of this CD. The term "false advertising" readily comes to mind. There are only four (very) short songs from the movie, one of which --Learn To Love-- is remixed to the point of being unrecognizable. Where are the Sammy Davis and Lou Bega tracks? What happened to "Sing A Song"? Where's "I'll Be There For You" by Solid Harmonie? I bought this CD so I could have a copy of "Top Of The World" by Shonen Knife, a song that is prominently featured in the film. According to the commentary on the DVD, the director himself stated that he'd always wanted to use "Top Of The World" in a film and that he was especially pleased with the Shonen Knife cover version. SO WHY ISN'T IT ON THIS SOUNDTRACK ALBUM????? Instead, we're subjected to remixed-to-death versions of dance songs that have nothing to do with the movie whatsoever and that have already appeared countless times on so many other compilations. Many of these horrid tracks are presented here in their most tiresome and boring mixes. I'm a huge dance music fan, but this album is one major snorefest! Besides, if I had wanted a dance music mix CD, I would have bought that. And, for the record, the Giorgio Moroder track is only 3 minutes long...a far cry from the 10-minute version someone else here is claiming.Avoid this CD. The producers and manufacturer should be ashamed for foisting this garbage on an unsuspecting public. A complete waste of money."
Soundtrack? What soundtrack?

"Why is this album called a soundtrack? Many of the tracks that were featured in the film were "mixed" to death so as to be unrecognizable and four tracks weren't even heard in the film, but were included in this album. And some of the music from the film never made it onto the album at all ("Such a Lot of Living", the piano music during the softball games, the cover of "Top of the World").
No soundtrack I ever bought was subjected to such a hatchet job. Maybe the producers should have called it "A couple of tunes from 'The Broken Hearts Club'"--that's about right!"
Mary Beth rocks!

"I love the mix of songs on this soundtrack, especially the two soulful covers (Close to You, We've Only Just Begun) by Mary Beth Maziarz. Her voice is awesome; I picked up the CD just for those--and the dancy stuff ain't bad, neither!"
