The selling point of this soundtrack is the "specially-recorded" cut from David Bowie, "I Can't Read." A bit dreary and a return to his earlier style, it is pleasant and acoustic. However, I am attracted more to "Light Up Or Leave Me Alone" (Traffic), "Dirty Love" (Zappa), "Montego Bay" (Bobby Bloom),"Coconut" (Harry Nilsson), "Mr. Big" (Free) and (my favorite track) "O Grande Amor" (Antonio Carlos Jobim). Why should I lean toward this eclectic collection of familiar tunes? I'll tell you why, CD-quality sound and an ear-catching variety. They blend in a very interesting way. No song triumphs clearly over the rest or presupposes the next.
