Product Description:

Composer: George Fenton.
As one might expect from the soundtrack to BEWITCHED, the 2005 film based on the 1960's TV series, the majority of the song selections revolve around sorcery and witchcraft. Though listeners can see the theme coming from a mile away, the song choices are fortunately quite excellent. The heaviest emphasis here is on classic pop vocals, with inclusions from Frank Sinatra ("Witchcraft"), Steve Lawrence ("Bewitched"), Ella Fitzgerald ("Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead"), and--the topper--a duet between Louis Armstrong and Bing Crosby titled "I Love You, Samantha" (which happens to be the BEWITCHED protagonist's namesake).
The theme extends into the rock era too, with the Police's "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic," and Talking Heads' infectious, hooky paean to supernatural vixenhood, "And She Was." Tucked between these tales of paranormal charms are tunes about found romance (Rupert Holmes's "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)") and emotional vulnerability (R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts"), outlining the emotional narrative of the film, and putting this collection a cut above your average blockbuster tie-in.
