Is the Gilmore Girls soundtrack worth buying?

One can’t be a proper Gilmore Girl wannabe without owning the Gilmore Girls Soundtrack. (Fine, I’ve finally admitted it, I’m a wannabe. Happy?). You definitely get your moneys worth with 24 songs, including the theme song by Carol King. By my count this CD has 16 good-great songs, 3 fair to middling songs, & 5 plain bad songs. That is a pretty good ratio. It sounds like something the Gilmores would listen to. My favorites is the “la-la” music by Sam Phillips. You know the one, the songs that go la la la, where we can tell something magical is going to happen. I’m now on a quest to own all the “la-la” music from all seasons. If anyone knows where I can get more, I’d appreciate a comment. At my house things go something like this, “Sara I’m going to go get the mail”, “Just a sec, let me turn on the la-la music to increase the chances of something magical happening on your way to mailbox”.

I've watched every episode of Gilmore Girls several times. I moved to a small town that reminded me of Stars Hollow. I've subconsciously had my haircut to look like Lorelai. Gilmore Girls is my life, I just have to find Luke. (Well, I didn't have a kid when I was 16, but other than that...)

    Haha. That’s cute. I love the lala music. Do you think it is weird that I am not watching the GG because I don’t have cable but I come visit this site faithfully? I hope it doesn’t creep you out or anything. The other day when you said Lorelai and Christopher eloped I just about fainted. It’s maddening not being able to watch the show. Damnit, I need a friend with cable (I just moved though, and I am currently friendless here)

    So true ๐Ÿ™‚ Magical things rarely happen on the way to the mailbox. Unless I am expecting a package ๐Ÿ™‚ In your opinion, which songs are good and which are bad? Please tell me One Line and Human Behavior fall into the good list!

    Ooo…I need that CD!!! I’m asking for the GG DVD set for Christmas (any/all seasons) and this would be a fine stocking stuffer to accompany it!!! Maybe I’ll drop a hint on my blog, just in case Santa is reading… ๐Ÿ™‚

    And now it’s totally bugging me that I can’t think of what the la la la music is?!? How is it possible I don’t know that?

    My girls (13 and 15) listen to this CD all of the time. When we are heading out to something we don’t have the energy for, we crank up The Man Who Murdered Love and it revs us up in a flash!

    Glad to have found your site.

    Anyone remember the name of the book that Lane uses when she asks Rory to buy albums in New York when Rory goes to see the Bangles? Second season I believe.

    I have all 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls as well as the sound track which I reccently purchased and I must say it’s great.

    I especially like the little numbers by S.P.C. It adds a little magic to the CD I think.
