“I curse the day you were born!”
Because I wanted to dance wildly, channeling my inner Fergie Ferg, er, I mean find new tunes to run to, we have chosen to review this CD for its workout-ability and general awesomeness. With a play time of about 55 minutes, the soundtrack delivers a number of tunes for whatever activity you’re doing (biking, driving, sleeping, Samantha-ing, you know, whatever).
1. Labels or Love, Fergie—This is basically the song of the movie. It’s fun, it’s upbeat, and it’s high-energy. Perfect for interval work or keeping your pace up. Listen for Dr. Fergie’s advice on men: “Don’t cry. Buy a bag, and get over it,” and her subtle femininity: “I’m do this damn thing. Watch me do this damn thing.”
9. The Heart Of The Matter, India.Arie—You’ll recognize this Don Henley remake from the very beginning. Feel free to sing along to Arie’s version. I recommend picking up your pace as the chorus approaches and slowing back down during the verses.
Overall, this CD does have an abundance of low- to mid-tempo songs that are good for cool downs or light cardio days, but the high-intensity ones are fabulous enough to make up for it. If you’re a fan of the show, or just good music, the FBGs highly recommend it. —Jenn
