Music Review: Sex and the City 2 Soundtrack

Looking forward to catching up with Carrie and the girls in the latest installment of the Sex and the City? When I got the chance to review the movie's soundtrack I was really excited, especially when I head that a brand-new duet "Love is Your Color" by Grammy and Academy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson, along with global superstar, multi-platinum recording artist and three-time Grammy Award nominee Leona Lewis would be included on it. I thought the CD started off strong with 12-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys, performing her own extraordinary new version of the Blondie classic “Rapture”. This was followed by an artist who is already one of my personal favorites Dido, with an exclusive new track that like Key's is very danceable and joyful. I would say those two songs along with Key's other track and Cindy Lauper's perennial favorite "True Colors" were the highlights.

The other songs are a bit of hit and miss for my musical tastes. The Sex in the City's Men's Choir were certainly good performers, with strong voices but are not something I would normally put on. I was excited to hear Grammy, Emmy, Golden Globe, Tony and Academy Award® winner Liza Minnelli covering Beyonce’s chart-topper “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It). Let's just say it was interesting. The Hudson Lewis duet I really really wanted to like, but it never clicked for me.

The stars of Sex and the City 2, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon, bust out Helen Reddy classic “I Am Woman", with a lot of enthusiasm and I think it'll inspire girlfriends everywhere to request it during Girl's Night Out. That song embodied the heart of Sex in the City for me, girlfriends having a good time together.The tracks on the Sex and the City 2 Soundtrack are:

1. Alicia Keys “Rapture”
2. Dido “Everything to Lose”
3. Cee Lo “Language of Love”
4. Erykah Badu “Window Seat”
5. Natacha Atlas “Kidda”
6. Michael McGregor “Euphrates Dream”
7. Liza Minnelli “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)”
8. Ricki-Lee "Can't Touch It"
9. Alicia Keys "Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down"
10. Jennifer Hudson and Leona Lewis "Love Is Your Color"
11. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, Cynthia Nixon “I Am Woman”
12. Sex and the City Men’s Choir “If Ever I Would Leave You”
13. Sex and the City Men’s Choir “Sunrise, Sunset”
14. Sex and the City Men’s Choir “Till There Was You”
15. Shayna Steele, Jordan Ballard, Kamilah Marshall “Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered”
16. Liza Minnelli with Billy Stritch “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye”
17. Cyndi Lauper “True Colors”
18. Aaron Zigman “Divas and Dunes”

Bottom line, this soundtrack is best suited for the Sex in the City fanatic.

Just saw the movie, and loved some of the music. :O) I Am Woman was a fun break from seriousness.
