21 Songs From Bride Wars
There are 21 songs in the movie Bride Wars, including music from Duffy, Estelle, Colbie Caillat and Natasha Bedingfield. There also are some classic (and classical) bridal songs, including Richard Wagner’s Bridal Chorus, Bach’s Jesu Joy and Vivaldi’s Spring.
But the movie also includes a few songs I would not expect, including Get Ready for This by 2 Unlimited and Give It to Me Baby by Rick James. Throw in a mix of The Submarines, Technotronic and Eve, contrasted against Natalie Cole and Ryan Shaw, and you have an interesting soundtrack.

And you cannot go wrong with a throwback to Natalie Cole. Here’s This Will Be (An Everlasting Love). Maybe songs that are prominently featured in commercials is the subtext for the movie soundtrack.
Or maybe you prefer a little musical sunshine and happy days from Colbie Caillat. All of her songs sound like sunrise in Santa Monica. You can’t help but think today is the day for a bit of goodness. Here’s Somethin’ Special.
