The soundtrack to the 2007 film adaptation of Katherine Paterson's classic young adult novel Bridge to Terebithia features tween-friendly songs as well as excerpts from Aaron Zigman's score. Most of the songs are sweet, earnest, acoustic guitar-driven songs that fit in well with the film's themes of friendship, inspiration, and imagination; in fact, the first three tracks, "I Learned from You" by Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana), "Try" by Hayden Panettierre (aka Heroes' indestructible cheerleader Claire Bennet), and Annasophia Robb's "Keep Your Mind Wide Open" are so similar that they sound like one extra-long song. Bethany Dillon's "When You Love Someone" and Jon McLaughlin's "Another Layer" stay in that template while providing a little variety, but the most distinctive track belongs to Everlife, whose "Look Through My Eyes" brings a little rock energy to its choruses. Zigman's score is pleasant and appropriately magical-sounding, especially on the soaring, sparkling "Into the Forest." "The Battle" goes from thunderous to mournful, providing the bridge between the imaginary and real lives of the story's characters. Bridge to Terabithia is an uplifting soundtrack; even if, ironically enough, it feels a little lacking in imagination at times, it should please fans of the movie.
I really like the soundtrack, and I think that this movie will be the #1 movie in the country when it comes out! I also bought the novel, and it was oustanding! I recommend the songs, ''I Learned from You'', and ''Keep Your Mind Wide Open''.
Christians + Tweens
This is a good soundtrack for both Christians and tweens. Miley Cyrus, Hayden Panettiere, and some of the others will appeal more to tweens who like "Disney music" but Leigh Nash, Jeremy Camp, and Bethany Dillon will appeal more to the Christians. Everlife is a plus because they can appeal to both since they are a Christian band who sings music mostly directed to tweens. I can't wait to see this movie. I read the book over the weekend and it's good but written for a younger audience.
I LOVED the song "Keep your mind wide open"! Annasophia has such an amazing voice! I can't wait to see the movie! It's gonna ROCK!!!
