      Well Where to being; The Fabulous music by Danny Elfman, the stunning Renee Zelwigger and Catherine Zeta Jones or dazzling 20's style music.
      Chicago set in the eponymous city in illinois about the life of a chorus girl (Roxie Hart) who murders her partner whom she is having an affair with. Sent to prison to meet Velma kelly and the "mistresses of murderers row" heres where this fab. soundtrack comes in, Roxie and all the cast all sing thier stories Tangoing, teasing and of course tirelessly entertaining us allthrough thier captivating stories.
      This is a fantastic score composed by a legend of the song writing world Danny Elfman, he useda 20's style score to go with this up-to-date but nostalgic musical. He used a classic combination of brassy instruments and vibrant percussion sections with a jazzy piano section in each song giving this score a typically antique feel to it. Then of course you've got the suggestive yet catchy lyrics like "I'm gonna rouge my knees and roll my stockings down, and all that jazz" tempting us to sing along each and every time
      Admitedly though, sometimes the songso out of place. i.e cell blcok tango isn't something you would have expected from the twenties and you are almost choked by the star studded line however I cannot stress enough of how much this musical is actually briliant; please listen to the soundtrack, because even if you don't like the story you can still enjoy the music!
