      “Cold Feet” is a classic television programme, and I always loved the music played throughout the episodes, which is what prompted me to get the soundtrack CD. “Female Of The Species” by Space is the opening track. A great track which brings back a lot of memories. A change of tempo with “Praise You” by Fatboy Slim. I cannot remember this featuring much in the programme, but it is a great song, and a sign that the CD is diverse, and will have something to suit most tastes. “You Stole The Sun From My Heart” by The Manic Street Preachers is one of my favourite tracks on the CD, and a lot of the lyrics are so apt to events from the programme. “Just Looking” by The Stereophonics is a moody track, which is a great background track for those moments of brooding by the characters, when music can portray feelings that dialogue cannot. Another track that I cannot remember featuring is “You Get What You Give” by The New Radicals. It is on here though, so maybe I missed it! A classic track now from Suede with “Beautiful Ones”. The lyrics to this are great, and it goes so well with the characters from “Cold Feet”. The song that reminds me of “Cold Feet” the most is “You and Me Song” by The Wannadies. It has a mellow intro, and then it really kicks off, and never fails to get me singing along. A strange choice next with “Mulder and Scully” from Catatonia. I never really liked this song, but in the company of the rest of the soundtrack it does not sound too bad. “Live Bed Show” by Pulp is one of my favourite Pulp tracks, and it was so well suited to this programme, and the angst ridden lives of the characters. In my eyes Garbage have never managed to release a song which comes anywhere near “Stupid Girl”. A great addition to the CD, as is “What Do You Want From Me” by Monaco, who
      are the group set up by Peter Hook from New Order, and they do sound very similar. The worst track on the CD for me is “A Pair Of Brown Eyes” by The Pogues. I can vaguely remember this featuring in the series, but it has never been and will never be my music of choice. Morcheeba are a very underrated group, and hopefully by featuring “Let Me See” on this soundtrack, they will get some more exposure. Oh dear, this is where the CD starts to go downhill for me, and I normally switch off at this point, because personally I find “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin one of the most annoying songs ever released, and it is closely followed by “You Don’t Love Me” by Dawn Penn. I should stay listening really because “You Never Can Tell” by Chuck Berry is a great song, but then again I have never really enjoyed the next track, “Lovin You” by Minnie Ripperton. My faith is restored again with the disco classic “Lost In Music” by Sister Sledge. Brilliant. The same cannot be said for the last two tracks though. I only ever like “It’s Raining Men” by The Weather Girls when I have had too much vodka, and I have never liked Gary Glitter, and I especially despise “I’m The Leader Of The Gang”. The second CD starts with a familiar track for all “Cold Feet” fans, and that is the Cold Feet Theme by Mark Russell. Then we have the second offering from Fatboy Slim with “Right Here, Right Now”, a great dance track. This is followed by the strange “Windowlicker” from The Aphex Twins. I cannot remember this featuring at all, and it is a very strange choice. Republica feature next with the brilliant “Ready To Go”, but is a softer version, much less guitar based, so it has lost some of it’s edge. “Only Love Can Break Your Heart” from St Etienne is a good mell
      ow dance track, and one that I always song along to, as I do with the next track “Missing” by Everything But The Girl. This was the first time they had attempted the crossover into dance music, rather than the more mainstream stuff they had done before. A great track, and perfect for so many scenes from the series. The cover of “Never Can Say Goodbye” by The Communards is up next. Not a personal favourite, but again it suited the programme so well, but not as well as the classic “Power Of Love” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. This song gives me goose bumps every time I hear it. I could never take Culture Club seriously at the height of their fame, and on hearing “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” those feelings return. A poor imitation of a love song I am afraid, but I do admit it did fit in well with the characters. Nick Heyward, oh how I loved him. “Love Plus One” by Haircut 100 is playing and I am a child again. “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell is a song you either love or hate, and I fall into the latter category I am afraid. A classic love song which is apt for so many character in “Cold Feet” is “True” by Spandau Ballet. I love the lyrics, especially “this is the sound of my soul”. Going right back in time with “Magic Moments” by Perry Como. Slightly comical edge to this song, but it featured prominently in the programme, as did “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” by Andy Williams, but I truthfully cannot remember hearing “Working A Coalmine” by Lee Dorsey, so the inclusion puzzled me. Karaoke classic “Jolene” by the warbling Dolly Parton is up next…less said the better. The CD hits rock bottom with “He’ll have to go” by Jim Reeves, which I am sure holds a special place in a lot of people’s hearts, but not for me thanks. The CD starts to limp to a disa
      ppointing end with “In A Sentimental Mood” by Dr John, which is just pure piano bar drivel, then to rub salt in the wound, it is followed up by the lift music version of the classic “When I Fall In Love” by Ben Webster. The final track is “My Funny Valentine” by Chet Baker, which is a weak finish for what promised to be a great CD. I know that soundtracks will not please everyone, but there just seems to be too many tracks here which are not related to the show, and maybe a single CD would have been a better idea, and I would have felt less ripped off.

        While it's easy to be cynical of "soundtrack" albums for TV shows which, to be honest, aren't about music, the compilers of 'Cold Feet' have put together a highly listenable and enjoyable CD. The dirversity of music contained is one plus point - see the track listing below for example, but believe me that while it's true there is something for everyone, it's also true that everyone will love virtually everything. The one downer is the high pricepoint - but it's just about worth it, and if you can find it in a sale, do not hesitate to buy it. It'll keep you listening for years.

        Now I absolutely loved this series, brilliantly written, brilliantly cast and the choice of music was just spot on. As far as I know this soundtrack was actually released due to overwhelming demand and I am so glad it was. my favourite tracks include Fatboy Slim..Praise You, New Radicals..You Get What You Want, St Etienne..Only Love Can Break Your Heart. O.k so like all soundtracks you have the odd cheesy song...Dolly Parton..Jolene !!??? but this is one soundtrack that has something for everyone. Personally I prefer Disc One to Disc Two. Definitly on my list of driving C.D's
