Product Description:

Producers include: Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Plotkin, Daniel Lanois, Peter Gabriel, Anton Sanko.
Bruce Springsteen's "Streets Of Philadelphia" won 1995 Grammy Awards for Song Of The Year, Best Male Rock Vocal Performance, Best Rock Song and Best Song Written Specifically For A Motion Picture Or For Television. "Streets Of Philadelphia" was also nominated for Record Of The Year. Neil Young's "Philadelphia" was nominated for Best Rock Vocal Performance, and Sade's performance of "Please Send Me Someone To Love" was nominated for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
Not only does the original soundtrack to Jonathan Demme's PHILADELPHIA mark Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young's debuts as motion picture contributors --the Oscar-nominated "Streets Of Philadelphia" and "Philadelphia," respectively--it also features previously unreleased material by Peter Gabriel and Sade.
Director Jonathan Demme has developed a reputation for assembling especially interesting soundtracks to such previous movies as Something Wild and Married to the Mob, but he's never gotten quite such high-powered talent to work for him as he has on this collection of songs from Philadelphia. Topping the list, of course, is Bruce Springsteen's Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning gold Top Ten hit "Streets of Philadelphia" (even if it seems to be as much about homelessness as about AIDS, the movie's subject). But also included is Neil Young's "Philadelphia," arguably a better song, and a new number by Peter Gabriel, "Lovetown." Those are the major contributions, although Spin Doctors do a nice version of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?," and Indigo Girls' take on Danny Whitten's "I Don't Want to Talk About It" is equally enjoyable. And there's the excerpt from the opera Andrea Chenier by Maria Callas that makes such a striking scene in the movie (minus Tom Hanks' commentary), and a piece of Howard Shore's score. ~ William Ruhlmann
