Our Little Corner of the World: Music from the Gilmore Girls
Fans of the mother-daughter dramedy The Gilmore Girls will find much to love about the series' tastefully compiled, alt-rock-leaning soundtrack. Direct links to the TV show are many: The disc includes "Where You Lead I Will Follow," the Girls theme song, sung by the mother-daughter team Carole King and Louise Goffin, as well as a new song apiece from Grant-Lee Phillips, who has a recurring role as the town troubadour, and the honey-voiced Sam Phillips (no relation), who also contributes the cooing incidental music that's sprinkled throughout. Elsewhere, the set derives its spunk from an A-class list of alt-rockers, from known quantities such as Joey Ramone (a punk pop take on the Louis Armstrong standard "What a Wonderful World"), Björk, XTC, and Yo La Tengo, along with bubbling-under talents such as the Shins (the Kinksian "Know Your Onion!"), the Pernice Brothers (the buoyant "Clear Spot"), and Slumber Party (the dreamy indie-pop "I Don't Mind"). And Gilmore Girls creators-writers Amy Sherman-Paladino and Daniel Paladino (yep, a couple) tip their hats to the old school with nuggets from John Lennon ("Oh My Love," which will soothe the ears of any Elliott Smith fan), Big Star (the always swoon-worthy "Thirteen"), and lesser-knowns the Free Design (the treacle-sweet "I Found Love"). Not only does Our Little Corner of the World make a great companion to one of the boob tube's smartest, best-written shows, but it's also a must-have primer for any alternative music fan.

This CD rox! If you love Gilmore Girls you'll love this CD!
This CD/Soundtrack was amazing. It's even better than I thought it would be. Gilmore Girls is an incredible show let alone the soundtrack. It was great. Anyone who tells you otherwise is out of there minds!!!!!!!!
I did not like this album. If you like the show Gilmore Girls do not buy this.

I thought it represented Gilmore Girls perfectly, Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband have excellent taste in music and it shows, they are talented people and know how to get the emotions into the show through great writing and great music, I highly recommmend this CD.
wow!! this is a really g%d cd!! but not 4 the musically timid!! lol!! it's really great 4 the kinda ppl who don't have 2 stay within the boundries set by pop radio staions when it comes 2 myoosik!!! not 1 song on here is @ all like another and that's what makes it so great!! and every song u hear on here, (lol) it's like, "yep! that's very gilmore girls!!!" which brings me 2 another point, u won't appreciate it as much if u don't watch the show! then again, u might listen 2 this cd and understand y u have 2 watch this show!! either way, buy this cd!! it's soooooo c%l!! lol!!
Really good, i bought it a barnes and noble and it rocked! totally worth the $. They should make another soundtrack, the music is great! The books are also really good. Grant Lee Phillips is in this and in GG. Too Cool! Me and my sister both bought a copy, its really good. Definitly reccomend to others.
