Soundtrack to a comedy adventure--Happy Feet is set deep in Antarctica. Into the land of the Emperor Penguins where each needs a heart song to attract a sould mate, a penguin is born who cannot sing. Our hero Mumble, son of Memphis and Norma Jean, is the worst singer in the world...however, as it happens, he is a brilliant tap dancer!

The movie soundtrack was great...but this is not the REAL mo

"My daughter and I went to the movie and were so struck by the POWERFUL music that I went out and immediately bought the soundtrack. Where are all those songs the penguins sang? And what about those great mixes? When are these movie folks going to realize that we don't want to hear singers performing songs that were not in the movie--I don't care who they are. We want to hear the same people who sang in the movie, singing on the soundtrack. This makes no sense to me and made even less sense to my 4 year old daughter, who was hugely disappointed with the bulk of the songs on the cd.
We wanted to hear more of the penguin songs and less of the background songs that no one cares about (i.e. "Beach Boys"). If I wanted to hear the Beach Boys, I'd go out and buy their cd. Put something on the soundtrack cd that we can't get anywhere else and forget that old stuff we can get any time we want to.
"Boogie Wonderland," "Somebody to Love" and "Kiss/Heartbreak Hotel" are the only truly awesome songs with actual "Penguin" voices that you will hear on this soundtrack--although "Kiss/Heartbreak" had a much better mix on screen. There is one Robin Williams song, but it was much better in the movie too.
Except for "Boogie Wonderland" (which ends abruptly) you miss out on the great STOMP, tap and mix effects that were so overpowering in the movie.
Let's hope they put a lot more of the original stuff on 2nd soundtrack coming out and get it right.
Not the ORIGINAL Soundtrack

"This CD has been heavily Rap-'ised'.
I guess to appeal to Today's Music audience.
The Producers of this CD should have taken a clue from a Hit CD Soundtrack like SHREK and realized that by giving the Music consumer exactly the songs that are on the Movie (not cheap imitations) and in their Exact Movie order they would have had a bigger CD Hit.
If you like to hear the better version of these songs - then record them from the Upcoming DVD."

"Not really the same songs as the movie - or at least not done by the original artists. I paid the money to hear the songs from the movie, not re-done songs by other artists. My children listened to the CD and said, "This isn't how it was done in the movie!" There are one or two that were the same, that's the only reason it has a 3-star rating. Very disappointed."
