AllMusic Review by

Good Morning Vietnam was a comedy drama starring Robin Williams as an American Army DJ in Vietnam. Appropriately, the soundtrack is filled with oldies -- from Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" and Martha & the Vandellas' "Nowhere to Run" to the Rivieras' "California Sun" and James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)" -- punctuated by Williams' manic comic routines. Some listeners will find the routines a bit tedious, but it's a thoroughly entertaining and well-paced collection of oldies that manages to evoke the mid-'60s quite well.
