The soundtrack to Disney's Lilo & Stitch features songs by Elvis Presley, Wynonna, and Mark Keali'i Ho'omalu & the Kamehameha Schools' Children's Chorus, as well as excerpts of Alan Silvestri's score. While Wynonna's version of "Burning Love" doesn't compare to Presley's original, it does fit the lighthearted, energetic feel of both the film and the rest of the album, and is considerably more faithful than the A-Teens' shiny, teen pop rendition of "Can't Help Falling in Love." Ho'omalu & the Children's Chorus' "Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride" and "He Mele No Lilo" add some authentic Polynesian flair to the music, which is contrasted by Presley's "Stuck on You" and "Suspicious Minds," and also by lively score excerpts such as "Stitch to the Rescue." While it's a somewhat scattered album, Lilo & Stitch does present all of the film's sides, making it a worthwhile musical souvenir.
