I loved listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks music when I was a kid – the old cartoon version, of course. ;-) I remember their Christmas songs and how hilarious they were. My sister and I enjoyed them immensely. Kids always wonder how they got those voices so high-pitched, and I was no exception. I could almost believe they really were chipmunks singing… after all, if chipmunks could talk, they would sound like that, right? ;-)
Wait, not that I’m denying the existence of talking chipmunks…
So guess what I have? The soundtrack for the new Chipmunks movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel!
My daughter and I listened to it together here at home and our reactions were the same: we laughed at the high-pitched chipmunk voices (and they really sing well – I think they’ve gotten better over the years, lol) and bobbed around to the beat.
The songs are familiar, ultra-cool favorites such as You Really Got Me (you know you’ve heard it, “Girl, you really got me now, you got me so I don’t know what I’m doing now”), Hot N Cold, and We Are Family. I had to laugh at hearing those songs sung by The Chipmunks and The Chipettes. So funny! And they really did a great job with the soundtrack – it’s fun to listen to, even for an adult! The voices aren’t annoying in the least.
The Track Listing:
1. You Really Got Me – The Chipmunks (feat. Honor Society)
2. Hot N Cold – The Chipettes
3. So What – The Chipettes
4. You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) – The Chipmunks
5. Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) – The Chipettes
6. Bring It On – The Chipmunks
7. Stayin’ Alive – The Chipmunks
8. Song – The Chipettes (feat. Queensberry)
9. It’s OK – The Chipmunks
10. Shake Your Groove Thing – The Chipmunks
11. Put Your Records on – The Chipettes
12. I Want To Know What Love Is – The Chipmunks
13. We Are Family – The Chipettes & The Chipmunks
14. No One – The Chipettes (feat. Charice)
15. I Gotta Feeling – The Chipettes & The Chipmunks
We don’t really have a favorite song because we loved them all! But I think You Really Got Me makes us laugh the most. :-)
I haven’t seen the second movie and still really enjoyed the soundtrack, so don’t hesitate to check it out because you haven’t seen the movie yet! It actually makes me want to see the movie now (and I hadn’t planned on it before). ;-)
