Sex and the City 2 Soundtrack: Review

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 Posted by Dina N

I am a big fan of Sex and the City. I own all the seasons on DVD, plus now I have SATC the movie. I cannot wait to see Sex and the City 2! The new movie premiers this weekend. I was super excited to receive the soundtrack of SATC2 for review, thanks to the One2One Network.

The CD arrived yesterday, and I popped it in right away. The soundtrack did not disappoint! Just as SATC stars fab actors and great fashions, the CD features an excellent collection of songs. Some of the singers on the soundtrack are already my favorites: Erykah Badu, Alicia Keys, Dido, Cyndi Lauper. Others are new to me. The collection is pleasant and catchy without sounding too sugary or overly sentimental. It just puts me in a great mood! The songs are edgy, the singers talented, and even though I have not seen SATC2 yet, I am sure they provide the perfect accompaniment to the story. And the girls singing I Am Woman? Simply irresistible!

If that's not enough to make you want to hear the soundtrack right now, consider these interesting tidbits:
  • The soundtrack  features a brand-new duet "Love is Your Color" by Grammy and  Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson, along with global superstar, multi-platinum recording artist and three-time Grammy Award nominee Leona Lewis.
  • Soundtrack includes a new song by platinum-selling  CeeLo and International superstar Dido also contributes an exclusive new track.
  • Grammy, Emmy, Golden Globe, Tony and Academy Award® winner Liza Minnelli covers Beyonce’s chart-topper “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”
  • 12-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys performs her own extraordinary new version of the Blondie classic “Rapture”.
    Here is the complete list of tracks:
    1. Alicia Keys “Rapture”
    2. Dido “Everything to Lose”
    3. Cee Lo “Language of Love”
    4. Erykah Badu “Window Seat”
    5. Natacha Atlas “Kidda”
    6. Michael McGregor “Euphrates Dream”
    7. Liza Minnelli “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”
    8. Ricki-Lee "Can't Touch It"
    9. Alicia Keys "Emire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down"
    10. Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis "Love Is Your Color"
    11. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim  Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon “I Am Woman”
    12. Sex and the City Men’s Choir “If Ever I Would Leave You”
    13. Sex and the City Men’s Choir “Sunrise, Sunset”
    14. Sex and the City Men’s Choir “Till There Was You”

      This is going to be so good. I have always watched Sex in The City on a regular basis. It always made me laugh. The movie was awesome. Looking forward to the next one. Thanks for the post.

      They always have the hottest soundtracks! Rather than buying each album individually, I think I'll just purchase this soundtrack and save a few bucks, lol.

      I plan to go see this movie, but I read in the paper it was a big disappointment compared to the
      TV series and the last movie. Oh well, I'll judge that myself!

      I know I'm in something of a minority with this but I have to say I was a little disappointed with the soundtrack after the first.

      The pick of artists is great, but I think a lot of the song choices are pretty poor which acts to make them look a lot less talented than they actually are. In fact it's one of the less experienced artists, Ricki-Lee who shines through most for me which is obviously far from what you'd expect with artists like Liza and Alicia on board!
