He's Just Not That Into You

Thankfully when the book "He's Just Not That Into You" was published I was no longer a single woman. I've had my share of realizing that "he" wasn't into me and was overjoyed when I no longer had to guess about the intentions of a man. I know the book was a runaway success and I am not surprised when it was announced that it would soon be a movie. 

When the One2One Network asked me to review the soundtrack I immediately said yes. I was curious to hear the type of music that would pepper the lessons of unrequited love (or like) in the movie.  As soon as I recieved the CD I was happy to see that there were some oldies by my favorite artists: The Cure, The Human League and R.E.M.  When I popped the soundtrack into my CD player the opening song "I'd Like To," by Corinne Bailey Rae (love her) immediately caught my attention.  I also really enjoyed the song "Love, Save the Empty" by Erin McCarley. I have to say the biggest surprise for me was the final song "Last Goodbye" I found myself playing it repeatedly and when I finally looked at the CD case for the artist - it was Scarlett Johannson! Yes, the actress, Scarlett Johannson.  I have to tell you that girl can blow! Her song is my absolute favorite on the soundtrack. 

Overall I really enjoyed the CD. It is available now and you can check out the website to hear samples of the songs.

Very cool soundtrack - if you like Scarlett's rendition of "Last Goodbye" and Erin McCartney's song, you might like an artist that's my new current fave - her name is MEIKO - check out http://www.myspace.com/meiko - soooo good!

I have both positive and negative opinion about "He's Just Not That Into You" .The selection of actors was good.But I felt as if the storyline was a bit complicated (and boring too).It seemed similar to watching FRIENDS.My average rating would be 6/10.I may suggest you to watch it, but you must not keep high expectations
