"Mermaids was a great film, and had great music in it, but the soundtrack neglects to include almost all of the best songs: Eydie Gorme's "Blame It On The Bossa Nova", Rosemary Clooney's "Mambo Italiano", Peggy Lee's "Fever", Marvin Gaye's "Stubborn Kind Of Fellow", Jimmy Gilmer & The Fireballs "Sugar Shack", Betty Everettes "The Shoop, Shoop Song" (sure we get Cher's version but it's not the same). Then there are songs that I have only ever seen in this film, and only know lines from in the film as being the titles of these songs: "Let's Walk Some More", who does that I don't know, and "Dominique", which I think was a 1963 hit for the Singing Nun. And the trumpet song that Lou played in his shop when he first met Rachel (Mrs Flax)and the girls.One reviewer said that this soundtrack brings the film to life through music - have you seen the film? The songs I have mentioned here are the songs that bring it to life, and are the most memorable - but they are not on the soundtrack!If you have ever seen Mermaids you will be disappointed with this soundtrack. While there are some great songs on it the best songs are missing, which brings down the whole collection. Perhaps the people who compiled this CD should have compiled the soundtrack in two parts like with The Big Chill, in order to include the films most memorable tunes and some all time classics.One Star - Don't waste you money!"

"How can you not like this soundtrack! The music from the lighthearted comedy starring Cher, Bob Hoskins & Winona Ryder. This album includes songs from the 1960's & no, it's not your conventional Soundtrack CD it just includes songs, not instrumental pieces.
Cher's 'Shoop Shoop song' & 'Baby I'm yours' are fun & crazy.
Interested in all the songs to the soundtrack??
