Here’s why this album should be in your collection!
Like love, the Little Manhattan soundtrack (2005) is bittersweet: sweet because the album evokes some really wonderful feelings, but bitter because it will be virtually impossible to find.
The movie is an endearing romantic comedy about first love, featuring Josh Henderson as Gabe Burton and Charlie Ray as Rosemary Telesco. The soundtrack contains such classics as “The Very Thought of You” by Nat “King” Cole, “At Last” by Etta James, and an interesting Elvis cover of the Jerry Butler hit, “Only The Strong Survive.” These can be found on other discs.
The most frustrating search involves the album’s most memorable song: “Map of My Heart” by Chad Fischer. It is currently not available in CD or MP3 formats.
One solution is to pay a visit to a local independent record store. The staff is usually more willing than major vendors to conduct special searches for esoteric music.
Here’s an interesting fact!
Finding soundtrack albums from movies that weren’t big studio blockbusters can be challenging. Even when they are available, they can be expensive. Another example is the soundtrack album from Diary of A Mad Black Woman. It is currently the only way that India Arie fans can obtain the original version of her hit single, “Purify Me.”
