The soundtrack to Warner Brothers live-action animal caper Racing Stripes is surprisingly bereft of Elton John or Phil Collins songs. What it does have is Sting, an artist who normally takes himself so seriously that it's like listening to a United Nations speech, and Bryan Adams, an artist who nobody takes too seriously but continues to make records. Sting's contribution is an amiable attempt at channeling the trials and tribulations of a talking Zebra that yearns to succeed in the world of horse racing. The elegiac tone and odd chord changes render "Taking the Inside Rail" too weird for Top Forty, but it will probably be nominated for an Academy Award because it's Sting. Bryan Adams on the other hand phones in a another mid-tempo rock ballad that, with it's "winners take all" message of personal empowerment, will likely accompany year-end high-school football montages all over the country. The bulk of Racing Stripes is taken up by Mark Isham's serviceable — but ultimately forgettable — score.
Backwards thinking in 2006
The beauty of ITUNES is that you can buy one song on an album without having to pay for everything else that you don't want. Why would you go back to FORCING us to Buy the Whole Album when we only want One song. It's like going in to get a tire for your car, and having to buy an engine, 4 tires, a windshield, new doors,a wash and wax, and a new paint job. Smarten up dummies!! You want to know why peer to peer programs such as nap-ster, kazaa, and bearshare are so successful? its because music companies dont have the ability to think outside the box. GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT. As it was stated elsewhere, you could have had my dollar, I was willing to give it to you. But alas, you get none, I'll find it for free now somewhere else.
Why is this even on iTunes?
The ony way you are allowed to buy ANY of the tracks on this album is to buy the whole album. (Note that every track is priced as "Album Only".) You might as well just go buy the CD. One of the big benefits to iTunes is that you can buy just the tracks you want, without buying the whole album. It things like this that keep people downloading illegally. Varese Sarabande is notorious for this. As a marketing ploy, they make all of their sountracks "Album Only" when they are first released, to force people into purchasing the whole thing rather than get individual tracks. Later, sometimes, they release the tracks to be purchased individually. You'll often notice that poorly performing films do this to their soundtracks, or at least pick the one or two most popular tracks to force "Album Only" downloads on. The solution? In my opinion, buy the CD, rip the tracks you really wanted, then sell the CD to a used CD place. At least then you've maybe only payed twice as much as you should have to for the one or two tracks you actually wanted.
Only the Album?
I want to download some of these songs but not all of them. Will you ever allow us to buy them individually?
