Lyle Lovett :: Smile CD Review

Lyle Lovett :: Smile CD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Lyle Lovett put together an album with his songs from Toy Story, Stuart Little and more. Will it make you Smile? Find out all about this movie song collection right here!

Quick! What was the best thing about that little Disney/Pixar flick, Toy Story? I mean after Buzz, Woody and the killer animation. Give? Well, space cadet, I'm here to tell ya it was that toe-tappin' tune You've Got A Friend In Me. And, the voice behind that little ditty (besides its composer, Randy Newman,) is the extraordinary Lyle Lovett. It seems this long, tall Texan has been hitchin' his vocal wagon to a ton of great songs, and great movies, over the last 10 years. From Stuart Little (Walking Tall,) to Mumford (Till It Shines, with Keb Mo,) to Hope Floats (Smile.) Lyle Lovett has crafted a career out of smart songs and even smarter collaborations. Except for that whole Julia Roberts marriage thang!

It Will Make You Smile

Now all his cinematic songs are available on Smile: A Collection of Songs from the Movies. It's one cool CD. Not a boyband cool or a harmonious, rapper cool, I'll give ya that. But, more like that feeling when, during a summer with the heat wave that had all the thermometers poppin', out of nowhere came a breeze and it made everything alright. Lyle Lovett and Smile make everything alright.
