I have been waiting for the Sex And The City 2 movie to come out since I saw the first movie. I’m addicted. So, I was thrilled to review the soundtrack for the Sex And The City 2 movie (which comes out tomorrow!!!) Sex and the City 2: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (received soundtrack for free in exchange for this review) was released on May 25th and the film is in theaters May 27th.
Arabian Desert Experience
The soundtrack has a similar sound to the original Sex And The City soundtrack, although because the movie takes place in the desert, there is an arabian desert feel to many of the songs. I could picture myself sitting back with a cosmo our in the desert while listening to the soundtrack.
Sex And The City Soundtrack Highlights
Here are a few of the highlights:
- A duet by Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis, “Love is Your Color”
- New songs by CeeLo and Dido
- Liza Minnelli singing “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”
- Alicia Keys singing a new version of Blondie‘s hit, “Rapture” (I loved that song as a kid and the new version is quite different, but really good)
- “I Am Woman” sung by Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis & Cynthia Nixon (I did not like this version of the song and the singing wasn’t very good)
Overall, I really enjoyed the CD. I loved the new versions of Rapture and Single Ladies. The CD definitely has me really excited about the movie and I found myself moving my hips and grooving while listening to the CD. That’s a great sign in my book. If a song can’t make you want to cry or dance, then it’s not a good song! (and I don’t mean cry because it’s so bad!) The only song I didn’t like was the version of I Am Woman sung by the 4 actresses in the movie. Maybe once I see the movie, that song will make more sense, but just listening to it on the CD, it was awful.
