This is the original motion picture soundtrack from Christina Aguilera's movie Burlesque. The soundtrack was just as entertaining as the movie. I am still amazed by the incredible voice of Christina, which I believe outshined Cher. She has a powerful and beautiful voice. The 00s were much better because they were creative and unique with their sounds. Track 6 “Express Burlesque” and track 8 “Bound to You” are really good, but Track 1 “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” and Track 3 “Tough Lover” are my favourite songs from the soundtrack. Earworms that I don’t mind having. However, I discovered Christina did not write the songs Something’s Got a Hold on Me and Tough Lover. They are remakes of the original from Etta James, an African American singer who performed blues, soul, jazz, and gospel. Christina Aguilera did these two songs justice! Etta must have been proud! I believe Etta should have been celebrated as the Queen of Soul as it is a timeless masterpiece. I love how Christina reintroduced Etta’s music to millennials. The 2010s lack all of this. Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Adriana Grande can’t compare to Christina and Etta. They don’t have the same magic. Although, Etta is not a household name, she left a legacy of incredible music. We need to go back to basics where music was part of your soul and sound was simple. Listeners felt the soul and emotion of those artists. @janmorrow1225 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I enjoyed this CD, though I wish it were longer and had more than just two songs sung by Cher.
