      The movie, “Summer of Sam” was released in 1999. The actual events taking place in the movie occurred during the 1970’s in New York City. Listen to the soundtrack for this great Spike Lee film, and you’ll hear nothing but sublime entertainment.

      Whoever organized the sounds for this soundtrack did a fantastic job. The opening song, “Gotta Give it Up” by Marvin Gaye, marks the scene in the film where Dionna and her hubby


      (played by John Leguizamo) burned up the dance floor with their little routine.

      I still say that that scene was the sexiest non-sex scene I’ve ever viewed in a film. So now, when I hear that song, the scene comes to mind.

      Roy Ayers’ “Running Away” is truly one of the highlights of this soundtrack. The song itself sounds like disco, with a little hint of latin funk.

      The music is certainly ...


      • reminiscent of the times (70’s). But the feel of the song goes very well in clubs today.

        The song that really made me purchase this soundtrack was the song “There But For the Grace of God. ” No, this isn’t a gospel.

        It’s a house/disco song by a group called Machine. The story is pretty standard: little girl grows up loving rock and roll, gets into drugs and rebels against her parents blah

        blah blah.

        Very poignant story told inside a jamming groove. Additionally, there are plenty of other gems on this CD, including the ever-popular disco anthem: “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by Thelma Houston.

        In fact, as one goes through the CD, it’s pretty easy to “see” the movie in your mind. That is just how well this soundtrack was done.

        If you are a fan of quality 1970’s music, you will absolutely love this CD.
