What's the story?
Although tween fans may or may not be ready for it, Disney Channel's hit show, Hannah Montana, is indeed coming to an end. The soundtrack to HANNAH MONTANA FOREVER features songs from season 4, the farewell season, with duets from Billy Ray Cyrus, Sheryl Crow, and Iyaz. The soundtrack includes a digital booklet with lyrics and twelve songs, such as "Ordinary Girl," "Need a Little Love," "Gotta Get This," "I'm Still Good," and "Love That Lets Go."
Is it any good?
The last season of Hannah Montana Forever shows Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus) growing up and learning to let go, ready to spread her wings. The music from the Hannah Montana Forever Soundtrack is a nice mix of pop-rock, synth beats, and sweet ballads that Hannah Montana is known for, as well as a satisfying wrap to four seasons of fun, friends, family, and music. Hannah sings about growing up and moving on, as well as having fun on the dance floor, ("Are You Ready?") and coping with life as a teenager and celebrity ("Que Sera" and "Ordinary Girl").
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about how to deal with the end of a favorite show or character, and the difference between real life and people on TV. Should Miley Cyrus always be associated Hannah Montana? When you see Miley perform as Miley, do you still think of her as Hannah Montana? Do you look up to the character or the real person?
The song "Ordinary Girl'" is about Miley Stewart's struggle with being a celebrity and a normal teenager. Do you think this song could be a portrayal of Miley Cyrus's life as well?
