Josie & The Pussycats Soundtrack Review
Did you catch yourself humming the song from Josie and the Pussycats after the movie? I can understand why. The CD is jam-packed with fun, hard rocking guitars, thrashy drums and Pussycats.
Did you catch yourself humming the theme song from Josie and the Pussycats when you left the theatre? I can understand why. The soundtrack is jam-packed with fun, hard rocking guitars, thrashing drums and, of course, The Pussycats and their hip lyrics.
It's not really Josie and the Pussycats (Tara Reid, Rachael Leigh Cook and Rosario Dawson) singing. In the movie they were actually lip-synching to various artists like Kay Hanley from Letters to Cleo, Bif Naked and Matthew Sweet. The first song 3 Small Words, otherwise known as the theme song, sets the pace for the pounding bass that is laced throughout the CD. Unfortunately, after a while, you begin to forget where one song ends and another begins - they sound a little too similar.
It's not all wild though. They slow it down with acoustic guitars for a sec on the sentimental song You Don't See Me. There are some classic tracks too, like a rockin' version of The Beatles hit Money (That's What I Want) and the Buddy Holly/Iggy Pop hit Real Wild Child. On a different note the soundtrack also includes two soulful hip hop tracks Dujour Around The World and Backdoor Lover. If you want a fun listen with some purr-fect songs for an air band routine then Josie and the Pussycats is the one for you.
