The 12 Songs from City Island Soundtrack are Marooned without an Album

City Island is one of those movies that not a lot of people will see but everyone should. It’s not the funniest movie of the year, but it’s damn funny. It’s not the best soundtrack of the year, but it has some good tunes. I enjoyed both.

The score from Jan A.P. Kaczmarek sometimes wanders too close to the score from The Godfather with all that accordion woven into the mix, but it pulls itself back from the brink with a couple songs from The Staples Singers and a couple versions of both “One Lie Leads to Another” as well as “Carmen Habanera.”

Here’s all 12 songs from City Island. It’s a sliver of music about as wide as the island itself, but there are a few jewels in there for muscle-suckers and clam-diggers alike.
