This soundtrack to Shall We Dance -- a remake of a Japanese comedy about a conservative family man who rediscovers passion through ballroom dancing --stars Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, and Jennifer Lopez, and features dance-inspiring tracks by the Stanley Black Orchestra, the Pussycat Dolls, Mya, and Jamie Cullum.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
The soundtrack to Shall We Dance? is a predictable, but still pleasant, mix of different types of dance music and pop. The Pussycat Dolls take to the dancefloor with the Latin-tinged "Sway" and Gizelle D'Cole and Pilar Montenegro's "I Wanna Shall We Dance" follows suit, while Jamie Cullum applies his ...

The soundtrack to Shall We Dance? is a predictable, but still pleasant, mix of different types of dance music and pop. The Pussycat Dolls take to the dancefloor with the Latin-tinged "Sway" and Gizelle D'Cole and Pilar Montenegro's "I Wanna Shall We Dance" follows suit, while Jamie Cullum applies his cheeky, jazzy style to "I Could Have Danced All Night." Ballroom standards like "Happy Feet," "Espana Cani," "Perfidia," "Moon River," and "The 'L' Train" are competently played and also invite listeners to at least tap their toes, if not venture out onto the dancefloor themselves. Although ballads like Peter Gabriel's "The Book of Love" and Rachel Fuller's "Wonderland" seem a little out of step with the rest of this lively soundtrack, overall this is a decent musical souvenir for Shall We Dance? fans.

    Excellent Soundtrack

    Wow! What a great soundtrack to a great movie! I was pleasantly surprised to find that all of the music from the movie was included, and some I didn't realize was in the movie.

    Loved the Movie, Love the soundtrack, naturally

    I read a review where someone said that a couple tracks seemed out of place! No way! A soundtrack is all the music in the film and,is in fact the essence of the movie. I could have danced all night!!
