Valentine's Day [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] Review

by Andrew Leahey

Like its namesake holiday, the Valentine’s Day soundtrack is largely concerned with love and sticky-sweet sentiment. Several veteran crooners appear on the track list, but the album devotes more of its time to newer artists, with special attention paid to Taylor Swift (who appears in the film itself and sings two songs here, including the Top Ten single “Today Was a Fairy Tale”). Many of the other performers tackle older tunes; Willie Nelson turns “On the Street Where You Live” into a country song, Amy Winehouse slurs her way through “Cupid,” and Sausalito Foxtrot contribute a cute, bubbly version of Buddy Holly’s “Everyday.” The result is a run-of-the-mill soundtrack that, while underwhelming, rarely offends -- much like the movie itself.
