Smash Music: The Callback (S01E02)

.. and here's the featured music for Smash's Episode 2 entitled The Callback. Enjoy!

Call Me
I always think that this Blondie tune needs a certain level of punch and grit to work. But while Katharine McPhee's version sounds a little vanilla - that clear tone to her voice is just too nice - for my liking, the verses are actually kind of pretty. 7/10

Crazy Dreams
Wow. I like me some Carrie Underwood, but I somehow think that this arrangement and version is actually much better than the original. The uptempo country/pop complete with banjo and fiddle makes the song joyful, but how the show re-arranged this with a certain touch of melancholy is actually kind of impressive. Megan Hilty sounds lovely. 8/10

The 20th Century Fox Mambo
This one is absolutely stunning. Original songs always get a bit of a bonus in my book and the writing down to the production of the this tune is pretty stellar. Even Katharine McPhee vocals are spot on. Oh, and yes, the choreography of the actual number is impressive and McPhee is quite the dancer. Who knew? 9/10

I don't know if it's just me, but "The 20th Century Fox Mambo" file seems corrupted, it plays the first seconds of the song than it goes mute.

If you could reupload, it would be great. Thanks.


Fixed the link. You may try again.
