I love this soundtrack, it's probably my favorite soundtrack in my collection! I'm glad you enjoy it too!

I would say that you got that one right. I thought the music was better than the movie. I like the old one with gwenith paltro and jeramy northam. Which movie did you like better?

Josh, I preferred the 2009 Emma to the older one. It has been a really long time since I've seen the other one(s) but I believe that this one stuck the closest to the book? I loved the actors and of course, the music was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. :)

HE HEEEEE! I love this music. I don't usually listen to the whole CD (although I do on occasion), but my favorite favorites are: Main Titles, Knightley's Walk, The Ship's Cook, The Last Dance, and Blind Endeavours.


Melody said...

Oh, and on Blind Endeavours I almost always have Emma's speech running through my head, that goes with that part on the movie:

"How stupid I am! How blind I've been! Harriet? And Mr. Knightley!?"...and so on. ;-)

Charity U said...

Melody, I think those are my favorites too. :)

I know! About the words running through your head! Except for me, it's always on The Last Dance. I had a recording of it on my Mp3 player, but it was straight from the movie, had the words and everything. So I always hear all that. :) Love that piece....eeek! :)

Melody said...

Really? But there wasn't much talking guring that dance! Just right before it. :)

Oh, I sometimes do that with the narration on "Emma Woodhouse Was Borne", too. ;-) Although I can never remember the whole thing.

I have that problem words lag behind my typing. :P So mistakes come. :(

There's not talking during the actual dance. But I recorded it early enough that you get him asking her, others commenting on them as a couple, etc. :) So sweet.
