Title - 'Pushing Daisies ' (Varese Sarabande)
Artist - James Dooley
The show - as I'm really hoping you already know - has a candy-colored, in-your-face fantasy look to it, and so this was composer James Dooley's obvious musical starting point.
And since the almighty network honchos decided this show was not worthy to survive we are left with this truly wonderful recording of the music. As you listen you can tell the music was written for television as many of the clips end with a loud crescendo (ie: the little cliffhangers you are left with as you go into the commercials!).
Indeed, what makes the CD truly great, of course, is the inclusion of songs by Kristin Chenoweth and Ellen Greene. While each only gets one song to sing solo and a third song is sung as a duet, these are the frosting on the 'Pushing Daisies' musical cake!
This is, er was, ... oh whatever, a great soundtrack for the most unique, creative, funny, romantic TV show ever! If you love the show, you'll love the CD as well.
