The Dixie Chicks are represented twice, once on a Supremes remake, and while we'll stipulate they're every bit as machine-made as the Spice Girls, they also have sass and can really sing. Requisite and welcome classics include U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and Hall and Oates's Motown-esque "Maneater." Martina McBride's "I Love You" is country meets '80s New Wave, proving once again that Carlene Carter was 20 years ahead of her time. There's also a requisite big production R&B ballad (Allures's "You're the Only One For Me"), the requisite stunningly trite Diane Warren song (here done by Eric Clapton, who should have know better), and (perhaps by way of apology) a vintage Miles Davis track ("It Never Entered My Mind.") But the big surprise is from, of all people, Billy Joel, who does an absolutely knockout job with Lloyd Price's funny, heretofore obscure '50s stomper "Where Were You on Our Wedding Day?".

Not a Bridesmaid
This soundtrack contains many great songs by established artists. All of the tracks remind me of the scenes in the movie in which they were used. This allows me to remember what I love about the movie even when I do not have the time to watch it. I recommend this soundtrack to anyone who still delights in the fact that the re-pairing of Gere and Roberts in this movie was not only NOT screwed up but actually successful and enjoyable.
