Synopsis

Amazon.com
Could Disney be hoping that contemporary kids and their keepers will bond together over this compilation of '60s AM hits disguised as a cartoon soundtrack? Perhaps they envision serious parent-child discussions about the relative merits of the album's two versions of "Dancing in the Streets"--the Martha Reeves & the Vandellas original versus the Britney-fied beats and Whitney-fied melisma of Myra's update. (Hint: Myra tries much harder but achieves much less.) Or maybe they just want to expose the world to Robert Goulet's clueless take on the Lemon Pipers' "Green Tambourine" (a Shatneresque cover that's conspicuously absent from Bob's "16 Most Requested Songs" album). With such good intentions, you can easily forgive them for trying to make a quick buck with this underinspired collection of overanthologized pop, rock, and soul hits. --Bill Forman

A Fun CD From A Very Fun Movie
movie fan | 09/29/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Disney's "Recess: School's Out" is the kind of movie you wish would come out more often. It may not be the most intellectually stimulating, thought provoking film to ever grace the movie screen, but then what would it be? What is it is a fantastic piece of entertainment, and the soundtrack follows well in the tradition of the film. Borrowing strongly from hits from the '60s, the soundtrack includes two versions of "Dancing In the Street": the original, and a new version by Disney's latest pop icon, Myra. The CD also has classics like "Born To Be Wild" and "Let the Sunshine In". Also notable is a new rendition of "Green Tambourine" sung by Robert Goulet which can be seen in the credits at the end of the film, and "Recess Suite", a five minute track combining all the different score variations from the movie."
This soundtrack does not whomp!

"I thought that all the songs in this movie fit the story really well. It was a great movie especially if you watch the TV show. It was really cool to see a movie go back to 60s music instead of all pop. The new versions of some of the songs are not as good as the originals but they fit in the movie better and are not bad."
