Overview

One of the best modern rock soundtracks of the spring 1999 season is filled with great tracks by hip new artists, and some unexpected covers. The story of two sisters trying to get a date for the high school prom, 10 Things I Hate About You is an updated version of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. The sisters' father is way too overprotective and won't let the younger sibling date unless the eldest gets a date first. Featuring teen stars such as Larisa Oleynik, Julia Stiles, Andrew Keegan, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the movie was pretty good and was considered a box office success. Letters to Cleo is featured in the movie and on this soundtrack collection as one of the character's favorite bands. They do a great job covering Cheap Trick's 1979 hit "I Want You to Want Me" and Nick Lowe's "Cruel to Be Kind," keying off of the original artist's style and throwing in a little bit of their own. Other tracks featured in the film include Semisonic's "FNT," Save Ferris' "I Know," Sister Hazel's "Your Winter," Jessica Riddle's "Even Angels Fall," Leroy's "New World," Ta-Gana's "Saturday Night," Brick's "Dazz," Joan Armatrading's "The Weakness in Me," the Cardigans' "War," and Madness' "Wings of a Dove." As good as they are, the best track is George Clinton's immortal "Atomic Dog," heard during one of the film's funniest scenes. A '70s funk-lovin' lead character, stopped at a red light, wins a car-stereo volume duel with a carload of '90s Valley girls blasting Barenaked Ladies' "One Week" in the next lane. The album closes with the instrumental theme "One More Thing," composed by Richard Gibbs in a pop-classical style; it does a nice job working the same groove as the rest of the soundtrack.

hey, I've been playing this CD over and over and over again! Funny, when I use to play the video, the first song, got played.. then rewinded, then played, then rewinded, then played... well that could go on forever...I love the song...sad thing about it, it was played in the movie for the credits... so we had to wait till the ending to blast up the surround sound! I'm 29, but feel like 20.. so this CD is for the YOUNG AT HEART!

I play this cd constantly, I don't think it ever came out of my cd player since I got it, unless I took it out to put it in my discman. I've memorized all the songs. The first thing I said to my friend when we got out of the theater from seeing 10 Things was I'm getting the soundtrack. All the songs are my favorite songs ever. I especially love #4, Your Winter by Sister Hazel. Whenever I felt troubled, I would put that song on repeat, it's the greatest song out there. All of the songs are mixed together perfectly for an awesome variety of different music. All the bands who contributed to the soundtrack and especially the person who put the soundtrack together are all geniuses. I wish I could write more, but then I wouldn't stop.

The soundtrack was great but the first song in the money wasn't on it! I really wanna know the title of that one.

I think that this CD is just so amazing. There are so many good songs on it, especially your winter. It just makes you melt when you listen to it. I enjoy many types of music, but the songs on this album just pull me in their direction. Listening to them makes me feel... at home!
