Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Mark Schwartz
The original Dirty Dancing was set in the Catskills in 1963 but featured '80s soundtrack fodder from Patrick Swayze, Eric Carmen, and Jennifer Warnes. Havana Nights, set in Cuba in the late '50s, has a soundtrack complete with Spanish-inflected hip-hop and R&B. Oh well -- fans of era-appropriate mambo and cha-cha-chá are not the audience for this film, anyway. The younger demo will get something of an introduction to Latin music, at least in the form of contemporary standouts such as the Cuban rap ensemble Orishas (joined with Broadway vocalist Heather Headley in a nearly unrecognizable remix) and Colombia's Aterciopelados.

New York's Grammy-nominated Afro-Latin powerhouse Yerba Buena represent with their savvy update "Guajira (I Love U 2 Much)," but it's likely that these solid contributions will be overshadowed by Christina Aguilera's Spanish turn on "El Beso del Final," Black Eyed Peas' title track, and Carlos Santana's two cuts with crooner Jorge Moreno. The best of both worlds is Mya's "Do You Only Wanna Dance," ingeniously combining vintage mambo samples (Machito & His Afro-Cubans) and the Diwali riddim. It's reprised in a big band format to close out this tropical treat.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The soundtrack to 1987's Dirty Dancing was an enormous hit, reaching number one on the Billboard charts and launching three Top Ten hits, including Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes' chart-topping duet "I've Had The Time of My Life." The soundtrack to its belated sequel-cum-remake, 2004's Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, is a collection of Latin-flavored pop, R&B, hip-hop, and dance. More stylistically unified than the original's soundtrack, it blends together and sounds like variations on Cuban-flavored grooves.

    AN OUTSTANDING MOVIE YOU MUST SEE!!!!!!!!!!!

    When I first saw this movie I thought it was AMAZING!!!! It has been the best movie I've seen yet. After I watched it for the first time I watched it over and over again. If anybody wants to see an outstanding movie they should rent "Dirty Dancing Havana Nights". It is WAYYYY better than the original. It is very captivating movie, it made me want to get up and start dancing to the music. Romola Garia and Diego Luna are GREAT actors, and I believe they did a wonderful job doing this film.

    Best Movie In This Decade

    I loved this movie havanah nights. I have never watched any movie more than once and I watch Havanah every day. It is for sure the best movie I have ever seen. The stars, the music and the dancing never get boring to me. Maybe there will be a Havanah NightsII.

    Amazing soundtrack with up beat songs

    Dirty Dancing Havana Nights is my favorite movie, I loved it so much I could watch it all over again if I wanted to. The songs from the soundtrack are amazing, it will make you dance to the beat of the music. Its very lively and up beat and I just love it.

    Good Music

    I have never really gotten into the whole Spanish/Latin music, but that has definately changed since I heard this soundtrack. All the songs are good! My favorite is "El Baso del Final" by Christina Aguilera because she is so talented, although all the songs are good. I definately recommend this CD.

    A absolute favorite must have CD.

    this sound track mixes rap, R&B, and latin music together for a wonderful affect. This sound tract is one of the best I have ever herd. All the songs are unique and one of a kind with different styles and moods. The fit into the film beautifully. These songs are so unique that while other CD's get old after a while, this one seems to never get old even though I have listened to it for a very long time. My advise is to buy it!

    Dirty Dancing, Havana Nights a Great Movie!

    I went and saw Dirty Dancing, Havana Nights, and I have to say it was very good. It could of been a longer movie (1 hour + 26 min), but no complaints. It was very well acted and the on screen romance between the two main characters (Katie and Javier) was excellent. If you enjoyed the movie then you will definetly enjoy the soundtrack!
