Movie Tie-In Music

As December 9th, 2005 and the release of THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE approaches, I find myself becoming more and more excited by the prospect. THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA are my favorite books of all time and THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE is the first (contrary to how they are being published in the U.S., Lion is the real 1st book in the series) and one of the best of the books in the series. When I was in high school, I even attempted to start writing a basic screenplay for the book because I knew that if done correctly, it would look amazing on film.

As part of a tie-in to the upcoming movie, this album of music "inspired by" the film has been released. That "inspired by" label is key because this is not music that will be heard in the film. However, the songs do complement the story rather well. The songs on this ablum are all performed by different Christian artists. Some of the songs are more "religious" than others (Bethany Dillon's "Hero" for example) and others are just plain fun (such as "Turkish Delight" by the David Crowder Band). Those who are already familiar with the story will enjoy the album the most because there are some references that don't make much sense outside of that context. However, many of the songs on the album can be appreciated by just about anyone. In my opinion, the best song on the album is the opening track by Jars of Clay, "Waiting For the World To Fall." This song speaks to me most powerfully and is the one song on the ablum that has the most cross-generic appeal; this song could easily be played on a "secular" radio station.

Overall, an album that can delight NARNIA fans, but might leave those without any knowledge about the story left in the cold of a winterland.
