Overview

Like the characters in the TV series, the songs on the soundtrack to HBO’s wildly popular "Sex and the City" are brainy and urbane, but most of their real action goes on below the waist. Kicking off with Tom Jones's recent European hit, "Sexbomb" -- which should not be confused with the old Flipper punk jam of the same title -- and ending with the sensual Groove Armada-penned theme song, the disc runs through hip-hop, dance, country, reggae, and straight-up rock. So what do the songs have in common? They’re all drenched with sex-obsessed lyrics and appropriate bump ‘n’ grind beats. The Dust Brothers even contribute a slippery cover of the Andrea True Connection's old heavy-breather "More, More, More," as heard in the ubiquitous pre-series trailer. Listen closely, though, and you'll detect an alternately come hither/back off aesthetic in almost all of these makeout tunes for 30-somethings. The songs here tap into the bittersweet attraction to the buzz of kicking someone out of your apartment at 2 in the morning (Imani Coppola's half-a-night-stand anthem "Count to 10") or having second thoughts about true love (Bette Midler's surprisingly rich remake of Teddy Pendergrass's "Love TKO"). The soundtrack is the perfect companion to the show and an ideal backdrop for reading Cosmopolitan and sipping Cosmopolitans.
