What's the story?

The penguins of Happy Feet Two just got a lot cooler with Pink lending her voice and talent on the HAPPY FEET SOUNDTRACK. It's ice-packed with 23 tracks that feature the raspy-voiced rocker, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, Janelle Monae, and 8-year-old rapper Lil P-Nut performing the music from artists such as David Bowie, Queen, Justin Timberlake, and Janet Jackson, among others.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Although the Happy Feet Two Soundtrack has many songs, most of them are instrumental or sung by the Happy Feet Chorus. Pink rocks it on the original "Bridge of Light" and "Opening Medley" is silly fun. "Tightrope" features the talents of Lil P-Nut and is an upbeat, head-boppin' track that is one of the album's best. Like the first soundtrack, this one features the incessant musical spontaneity of penguins who communicate by singing; if you don't mind that, you'll love this album. Azaria and Williams lend their funny beaks, but Pink rules the cool.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about songs that make you feel good. What are some songs that you consider inspirational or uplifting? What kind of music makes you feel bad or sad? What makes a song a "feel-good" song?

  • Discuss the importance of a soundtrack for a movie. How much does the music affect a movie's success? If a movie has a soundtrack you like, are you more inclined to buy it? Or, if you like the music or artists featured on a soundtrack, does it make you want to see the movie?
