Album Notes and Credits
Original score composed by Mervyn Warren.
Recording information: Bastyr Chapel, Seattle, WA; Leapyear Studio, Los Angeles, CA.
Arranger: Mervyn Warren.
Director Adam Shankman conceived this Jennifer Lopez/Matthew McConaughey vehicle as an old-fashioned romantic musical comedy in the spirit of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. (Interesting historical note: this is probably the only album ever made that includes--or will include--the phrase "This album does not include a Jennifer Lopez recording" on its back cover).
This commercially canny mix of contemporary pop stylings features Sister Hazel's post-Hootie "We'll Find It," alt-rock/hip-hop fusion in the form of Jessica Riddle's "Symphony," with its sample of Jean Knight's "Mr. Big Stuff," R&B balladry (the Goffin-King obscurity "Somewhere My Baby Waits for Me," sung soulfully by Lisa Stansfield), and sentimental '70s pop hits such as John Denver's "Annie's Song" and Olivia Newton John's "I Honestly Love You." There are also a few selections from Mervyn Warren's original film score, the most memorable of which is "Mary and Steve's Tango," heard during the picture's big Lopez/McConaughey dance scene.
