The soundtrack to the irreverent, computer-animated fairytale Shrek offers something for pop music lovers of all ages. Teeny-boppers will undoubtedly enjoy the chugging beats and scratches of the frothy "Like Wow!" from Leslie Carter (sister of Backstreeter Nick and baby bro Aaron), while Gen-Xers with a penchant for punk can mosh their way through Halfcocked's cover of Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation." Meanwhile, Mom and Dad will swoon to Rufus Wainwright's delicate, piano-laden cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Lifehouse singer Jason Wade's equally moving rendering of the standard "You Belong to Me." Other tracks sure to please the kid in all of us include the Baha Men's snappy, reggae-tinged party anthem "Best Years of Our Lives" and Smash Mouth's punk-lite cover of the Monkees' hit "I'm a Believer." For the lover in you, Dana Glover's sweeping romantic number, "It Is You (I Have Loved)," suggests Celine Dion's monster ballad "My Heart Will Go On." And comic relief comes from Eddie Murphy, who provides the voice for the character Donkey in the film and contributes a punchy reprise of "I'm a Believer" to the soundtrack. Like the film it accompanies, Shrek is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
