Taken [Original Soundtrack]

Opening appropriately with Dinah Washington's "Stairway to the Stars," this collection of songs from the 2002 alien abduction-themed television miniseries Taken spans six decades of popular music. This hodgepodge of '50s novelty hits, Sheb Wooley's "Purple People Eater," and counterculture standards from the likes of Love, Bob Dylan, and the Grateful Dead have a hard time coexisting -- this may be the only commercial compilation brave enough to include Emmylou Harris and the Stooges. However, this is a minor gripe considering the enormous time span covered in the program. Fans of the show will recognize the relevance of these tunes, but will no doubt question the exclusion of the score, which has been released as a separate record.
