The soundtrack album to Babe: Pig In The City, the critically acclaimed, commercially disappointing sequel to Babe, is a heavily padded disc containing five selections said to have been "inspired by the motion picture" (even though one of them carries a 1992 copyright!), dialogue excerpts, Chipmunks-like performances by the mice that appear in the film, some brief bits of Nigel Westlake's orchestral score, and a few miscellaneous tunes (Edith Piaf's "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien," Glenn Miller's "Chattanooga Choo-Choo," Dean Martin's "That's Amore") with sound effects and dialogue mixed in. The highlight is Peter Gabriel's performance of the Randy Newman-written, Academy Award-nominated theme song "That'll Do," but this is a classic example of a soundtrack album that has very little reason for existence.
