While you’re exercising, and driving to and from work, listen to your favorite music. One of my favorite songs is “It’s On,” from Boney James “Pure” CD.

During his 50 years of bringing music to the world, Ray Charles collected 12 Grammy Awards, 33 hit songs three of which went to number one, has received Lifetime Achievement Awards, Kennedy Center Honours, and is in the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Ray Charles felt that he had done everything he wanted to do, including a play a pretty good game of chess.

What I like about this album, is the easy listening factor, it never fails to put me in a good mood. As far as comedy scores go, I can see myself listening to this in the future, and not many comedy scores have that effect on me. Marc Shaiman has with The Bucket List risen to the top of comedy scores composers 2008, but that’s because I haven’t heard any other comedy scores yet. Let’s see what John Debney can do. All in all, a fun soundtrack and if you like comedy scores, you must love this.
