The Parent Trap [1998 Original Soundtrack]

3 New & Used Starting at $2.49


Considering that The Parent Trap was virtually designed as a marketing exercise, it's not surprising that its soundtrack feels as carefully assembled as the film itself. The movie turned out to be quite enjoyable, and the soundtrack comes close to being equally fun. Its weakest moments are the newer tracks; they're reasonably entertaining -- Super 8 lead vocalist Bob Khaleel acquits himself well on a cover of "Here Comes the Sun," and Nobody's Angel's revival of the Hayley Mills tune "Let's Get Together "is appropriately fun -- but they don't quite compare to the originals that comprise the rest of the album. Nat King Cole's "L-O-V-E," the Lovin' Spoonful's "Do You Believe in Magic," Linda Ronstadt's "I Love You for Sentimental Reasons," Young-Holt Unlimited's "Soulful Strut," George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone," and the La's' magnificent "There She Goes "provide an eclectic but entertaining core to this fun, if unremarkable soundtrack. Alan Silvestri's score is similarly pleasant but forgettable, but it all adds up to a diverting soundtrack.

I absolutely love the music from the movie! There is everything on this CD - dance, jazz, rock, and more. It's energizing and a wonderful break from the modern music that is so common on the radio. This is a wonderful treat for anyone of any age!
