I got the soundtrack La Vie en Rose (La Môme) free with the DVD version of the film and have listened to it quite a few times.
It's important to note that only a few of the songs on the disc (just three altogether) are actually performed by Edith Piaf. The rest are either orchestral tracks or Piaf songs performed by other female vocalists.
The three original songs are: Heaven Have Mercy, Crie du coeur and Rien de rien. These are all excellent versions of the songs and sound clear and fresh.
The other songs include Fascination, Mon homme, and Il m'a vue nue. All three songs are sound quite authentic, and reflect the range of different styles that this legendary chanteuse went through.
The other tracks on this album are short orchestral motifs taken from the film. Until listening to them, I hadn't realised how intricate the soundtrack was.
For me this album was a good intro to Piaf's music and prompted me to buy a compilation of her hits (the compilation turned out to be hit and miss), however I would probably only get this if you loved the soundtrack, as there are plenty of other compilations out there.
