The soundtrack to the movie Love Actually is a nice compilation of romantic songs. It features a variety of contemporary artists, such as Kelly Clarkson, Dido and Norah Jones, but also classic artists like Otis Redding, Joni Mitchell and The Beach Boys. I have yet to see Love Actually, but was told that this soundtrack fits the movie perfectly: each song transports the listener back to a specific point of the film. However, the album can be appreciated even if you haven't gotten the chance to see the movie. The album features a few covers, such as Lynden David Hall's soulful rendition of John Lennon's "All You Need Is Love". Also included is a new version of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now", which really showcases her beautiful voice. The best part of this album are the 3 classic bonus tracks: Otis Redding's "White Christmas", Billy Mack's "Christmas Is All Around" and Olivia Olson's "All I Want For Christmas Is You". Standout songs o­n this soundtrack are Dido "Here With Me", Norah Jones "Turn Me o­n", Eve Cassidy "Songbird", "Texas "I'll See It Through", Sugababes' "Too Lost In You" and Craig Armstrong's, "Glasgow Love Theme".
