This was the best CD I ever bought. It may be Pokemon but don't be fooled. Except for tracks 1, 10, and 13 the whole CD had nothing to do with Pokemon. "Don't Say You love" was a song with a very good story to it. "It Was You" and "We're A Miracle" are two great songs of friendship and love. "Soda Pop" was.........odd. "Somewhere, Someday" was a song about peace and love. "Get Happy" is a song to cheere you up even when everything seems to go wrong. "(Hey You) Free Up Your Mind" is a song to listen to if you have too much on your mind. "Fly With Me" is probibly a boyfriend, girlfriend song. "Pokemon Theme," "Lullaby," and "Catch Me If You Can" are a couple songs for the kids. "Making My Way (Any Way That I Can)" is a song that says, "No matter how far you are, or what I have to do. I'll get to you." "(Have Some) Fun With The Funk" is party music. "If Only Tears Can Bring You Back" is music for anyone who has lost a loved one. And last but not least "Brother My Brother" is a song about loving one another. That's all I have say.
This soundtrack is labeled as "music from and inspired by the motion picture," but it's more accurate to say it's "music from the motion picture, and some random songs that have absolutely nothing to do with the movie whatsoever." At least two of songs on the soundtrack were released eight months to a year before the movie and soundtrack were released. Also, out of the sixteen songs on the soundtrack, only six make some kind of appearance in the film: Billy Crawford's rendition of the Pokemon theme, … more

"Gotta catch 'em all," shouts teen-popper (and 1999'sBuckner & Garcia)Billy Crawfordon this kid-phenom soundtrack. Engineered to capture not only preteen fans of theJapanese anime craze, but Top 40 listeners who might fall for singles such as girl groupM2M's peppy "Don't Say You Love Me," it's loaded with familiar zillion-selling names such asBritney Spears,'N Sync,Christina Aguilera, and98 Degrees. A mixture of light dance-pop, innocuous romantic ballads, and "Eye of the Tiger" drama keeps things moving. G-rated through and through, the disc's nonstop chirpiness might eventually wear on parents' ears even as they acknowledge the catchy hooks. The younger set will love it without qualification.--Rickey Wright
