Nothing special. Too many instrumentals.
I love the movie so I bought the soundtrack. I don't like that it has too many instrumentals. They can cut most of them out and make it a shorter CD, so I won't have to skip so many tracks just to get to the ones with vocals in it.
I love the song "Boys and Girls" after hearing it so many times. :)
One of MGM's greatest
Meet Me In St. Louis was MGM's biggest and highest grossing film of 1944 and remains one of the most popular movie musical today. It features Judy Garland at the height of her motion picture career and, through this and other MGM movie musicals, has set a standard that all other actresses have simply failed to meet.
For this soundtrack, the first true soundtrack for the film, all of MGM's studio separation tracks have survived, been restored and remixed, and we now have a soundtrack that is entirely in true stereo. Meet Me In St. Louis is one of the crown jewels of the musical cinema and is a must in any collection, regardless of which genre of music you perfer.
A wonderful delight!
This is the movie that **ORIGINATED** the wonderful "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and the "Trolley Song", written by the brilliant geniuses in the MGM music department. Like many other songs from the MGM musicals, they have become standards. I saw the film about 7 years ago and can vaugely recall parts of it, but one aspect - the music - stands out the most as being unforgetable. Meet Me in St. Louis was made at the height of both the motion picture career of Judy Garland and of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's mighty reign over Hollywood. I'm sure many others will agree with me when I say this movie is THE definition of the word movie-musical. In the record stores in my area, you cannot beg, borrow, or steal a copy of this soundtrack; I had been looking for it for some time before I broke down and ordered it via the net.
They don't make 'em like this anymore.
