What's the story?

Fans of the third animated Shrek feature will enjoy the innocuous songs on SHREK THE THIRD SOUNDTRACK. Highlights are Macy Gray's "What I Gotta Do," deliciously soulful with a spare, sparkling instrumental arrangement and gorgeous background vocals; and Fergie's surprising ability to fill Ann Wilson's shoes on Heart's "Barracuda." Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas will charm your socks off with "Thank You (Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Again)" -- a joyful, energetic duet.

Is it any good?


With songs like "Do You Remember Rock & Roll Radio?" by the Ramones, and Led Zeppelin's classic "Immigrant Song," even family members who haven't seen the film will be able to appreciate the musical variety and intelligence of this soundtrack. So crank up the volume and enjoy.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the use of music in movies, and how the soundtrack affects the action. Do you remember scenes from the movie when you listen to specific songs? How about making up your own stories to go with some of these songs? Families can also discuss whether or not hearing the album will make you want to go out and see the movie and vice versa.

Shrek has always have the best soundtracks and scores forever after

Cool. But i wish they had all the songs like "9 Crimes" and "That's what Friends are for". And i wish they would put the score in the soundtrack rather than just sell it seporitely.
