Charade [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

All Music Guide - Stephen Cook
Reflecting the European setting of Stanley Donen's 1963 comedy thriller Charade, Henry Mancini's soundtrack provides an easy listening tour of continental musical history: Parisian café songs on "Bistro," Eastern European gypsy music on "Bateau Mouche," Schubert quartets on "Bye Charlie," and some beer barrel polka on "Punch and Judy." Thrown in for variety's sake are dashes of Bond soundtracks, Cossack songs, and Strauss waltzes. With Mancini's typically cohesive approach, though, Charade doesn't become a messy pastiche even with his mix of Latin rhythms and classical music on some tracks. And in the spirit of inclusiveness, Mancini also shows his south of the border ...

And in the spirit of inclusiveness, Mancini also shows his south of the border touch on "Mambo Parisienne" picture Perez Prado sporting an accordion, "Latin Snowfall" transcendentally gorgeous bolero, one of his best, and "Mégève" bossa nova for the Biarritz set. Also don't overlook one of his biggest hits and finest melodies, "Charade" done here in instrumental, vocal, and carousel? versions. A great Mancini recording made during the same fruitful, early-'60s period that produced two other fine soundtracks of his, Breakfast at Tiffany's andThe Pink Panther.

    Charade

    I first saw this movie cause I am a huge James Coburn/Audrey Hepburn fan. When I saw it I absolutely LOVED the music, lots of it is really suspensful and helps sum the movie up. It is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!

    Charade

    I think this soundtrack is great. It totally fits the movie, Henry Mancini did a excellent job. I am really glad the soundtrack is still available since the movie is almost 40 years old.

    One of the Best Soundtracks Ever!

    I just loved the movie ''Charade'' so when I realised that the film had a soundtrack that was still available I had to buy it. The opening number ''Charade (Main Title)'' is a fast-paced and suspensful song that helps introduce the tone of the film. However, on its own, the song is still an amazing and fun peice to listen to. I am convinced it is one of Mancini's best theme songs. The next song ''Bistro'' makes you feel as if your sipping on a cappucino in a sidewalk cafe in Paris. This song is also wonderful and lighthearted. The rest of the album is just beautiful with a mix of a more somber numbers, along with peices that have a mambo feel, and a cascading vocal version of the theme song. The albums highlights are ''Charade'', ''Bistro'', ''Bateau Mouche'', ''Bye Bye Charlie'', ''Drip-Dry Waltz'', ''Latin Snowfall'', and ''Orange Tamoure''.
