Scooby-Doo [Original Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Seth Kaufman
The original, formulaic Scooby-Doo cartoons owe their success to a dog with a great name, some likably silly comedy, and the scant critical powers of youthful viewers. For fans of hook-happy pop, though, the fabulously brash Scooby-Doo soundtrack is considerably more inspired. Marshaling the most cartoonish of pop stars -- Shaggy, Outkast, Uncle Kracker, Baha Men, and others, this Radio-Disney-ready affair delivers an endless stream of kinetic, energetic songs, many of which drop a Scooby reference into the lyrics and feature familiar-but-refined-grooves. Shaggy that's the rapper, not Scooby's pal reworks his boombastic reggae-hop hybrid on a remix of the series theme ...

For fans of hook-happy pop, though, the fabulously brash Scooby-Doo soundtrack is considerably more inspired. Marshaling the most cartoonish of pop stars -- Shaggy, Outkast, Uncle Kracker, Baha Men, and others, this Radio-Disney-ready affair delivers an endless stream of kinetic, energetic songs, many of which drop a Scooby reference into the lyrics and feature familiar-but-refined-grooves. Shaggy that's the rapper, not Scooby's pal reworks his boombastic reggae-hop hybrid on a remix of the series theme song, "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You"; Grammy-winning greats Outkast use "Mambo No 5" beats, a theremin, and their familiar clipped phrasings for "Land of a Million Drums"; puppy love king Lil' Romeo reworks the Commodores' funk masterpiece "Brick House" and includes a mind-numbing "34-26-34" chant; hit meisters Sugar Ray continue spinning their sticky-as-cotton-candy hooks with "Words to Me"; and Uncle Kracker and Busta Rhymes rework Whodini's "Freaks Come Out at Night." Meanwhile, the tastiest Scooby snack may come from those barkin' Baha Men, whose "Scooby Doo" delivers is a strong junkanoo-flavored party anthem that's sure to rock a theater near you.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It was such an obvious pairing that you might not have thought about it -- that is, ragga superstar Shaggy singing the Scooby-Doo theme, here entitled "Shaggy, Where Are You?" It opens up the soundtrack to the big, glossy summer blockbuster Scooby-Doo, featuring a CGI Scooby; the powerhouse pair of Freddie Prinze Jr. and Matthew Lillard appearing in no less than their fourth film together; Freaks & Geeks refugee Linda Cardellini; and, of course, Sarah Michelle Gellar, who has graduated from Buffy's Scooby gang to leading the real thing. Who knows what this means for the film, but the soundtrack is equally colorful and knowing, sliding in in-jokes which anybody raised on '70s television will get and not being afraid of being silly, which is kind of refreshing after such sour, serious soundtracks as Spider-Man. Sure, that means that some of this is disposable, but cheerfully, engagingly so -- and they help set the stage for curveballs of inspiration, such as OutKast's brilliant "Land of a Million Dreams" as bracing and deliriously inventive as Peter Gabriel's forgotten "Out Out" on the Gremlins soundtrack; or how Solange with Murphy Lee folds the Scooby theme into "Thinking About You"; or a good cover of Whodini's "Freaks Come Out at Night" with Uncle Kracker and Busta Rhymes; or another wonderful slice of Euro-disco from Kylie Mingoue, "Whenever You Feel Like It." Plus, a good mainstream soundtrack in 2002 wouldn't be the same if it didn't have a good Sugar Ray or Smash Mouth song -- no Smash Mouth, but Sugar Ray's "Words to Me" is yet more proof that this band crafts cheerful, mainstream pop better than most of their peers. It all adds up to a soundtrack that takes you by surprise and is actually a breezy slice of summer fun. Hopefully, the movie will pull off the same trick.

    Luv it!

    I don't have this soundtrack yet, but I so plan on getting it! I have the movie, and I luv it so I know I'd love the soundtrack. I don't know what that Jim Donahue's problem is, but he must have serious problems not to like this soundtrack.

    This soundtrack is simply... all right...

    Scooby-Doo is a classic cartoon made into an okay movie... so... the soundtrack can't be bad. It's pretty good. I don't know what Donahue's problem is, but I like the so-called pop stars music for the soundtrack. It is brilliant in a way that no 10-15 year old can comprehend. I happen to be 13 but that really doesn't matter because I'm right. Anyway... This Soundtrack is all right. Outkast, Sugar Ray, Shaggy, and MxPx did a magnificent job, as did Busta Rhymes. Their music ties it together. This is a perfect soundtrack and the movie is perfect for old Scooby fans. I am one of them...

    TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT

    This is a classic example of Hollywood having zero fresh ideas and enlisting so called popular music stars to do tracks for another lame soundtrack that is so not cutting edge it would make a twelve year old question the necessity of purchasing this disc.
