Sex and the City 2 Soundtrack Review

I am a big "Sex and the City" television show fan. Of course I did not watch the show when it first appeared on HBO, but I have seen every episode as it was shown on TBS for many years now. I hear that it's the toned down version, and that's probably much better for me. I feel like "Sex and the City" has always been a bit of an indulgence for me. It's not a show that I would typically watch, especially given its main concept. But something about it just works for me. I enjoy it.

When I saw the first movie, I didn't think there was any way it could live up to the show. I waited for a long time to see it. I finally watched it a few months ago. I loved it! I plan to watch it again soon. And now the newest movie "Sex and the City 2" is out. I've heard it's not as good as the first movie or the show, but I still can't wait to see it. I feel like it's a great book that you just can't stand when it's finished. For me these movies have continued the book. I love seeing all the characters and their new lives. It's just a lot of fun.

The Sex and the City 2: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was released on May 25th and the movie started in theaters just after that. I was able to preview the soundtrack CD. I really enjoyed the variety of songs on it. There was the iconic theme song in a new version, new songs, and several exotic numbers from various parts of the new movie. I really enjoyed the whole thing. A few songs I will listen to over and over and there are a few I skip, but overall it was a fun CD. And I especially liked the song on it that was performed by all the characters in the movie. Fun!
