A great soundtrack to go along with a great movie.
We all know the song, Oh Pretty Woman, walking down the street, Pretty Woman, the kind I'd like to meet, oh oh, Pretty Woman!!
Pretty Women is now nearly 20 years old but still of one my favourite films, it has some classic lines and a really heartwarming story. It was released in 1990 and according to an article I read, the film was a critical success and became one of 1990's highest grossing films, and today is one of the most financially successful entries in the romantic comedy genre, with an estimated gross of $464 million USD. Pretty Woman is one of my favourite films and the music throughout the movie I think really adds to the film. It is said that the film is actually noted for its musical selections and hugely successful soundtrack.
The movie's title obviously comes from the Roy Orbison hit, Oh, Pretty Woman which was released in 1964. It's become a classic song and now I must admit that everytime I hear it it just makes me think of this movie. Some of my favourite scenes are the ones where Edward gives her money to go and buy fancy clothes. Cue the Pretty Woman song and you have part of the main soundtrack. The song in my opinion adds to the shopping scene and makes it fun to watch. It must be so fun to be able to dress up like that and have all the shop staff wait on you hand and foot and she does come away with some wonderful outfits, even if they are a bit 90's!!
Another one of my favourite songs that I think is still a classic to this day is Roxette's "It Must Have Been Love". According to an article I read it reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in June 1990. I think it goes really well with the story in that Edward and Viv seem to have found love but then lose it before the end of the movie brings them together again.
