Based on the perennial animated favourite, which featured the booming baritone narration of horror legend Boris Karloff, the live-action version of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas is an instant holiday classic. Starring Jim Carrey as the green geezer bent on ruining Christmas for the wondrous town of Whoville, the film employs a clever and captivating soundtrack. The Grinch: Soundtrack presents original work from some of contemporary pop's biggest names, from country crooner Faith Hill to peppy pop stars 'N Sync. Among the album's many highlights is a truly unforgettable rendition of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch," featuring Carrey and rap superhero Busta Rhymes. Capturing the film's effortless blend of comedy, fantasy and holiday cheer, this soundtrack brings a little piece of Christmas into your CD player.

Editorial Notes

Original score composed and conducted by James Horner.
Jim Carrey turned out to be a natural for the screen role of Dr. Seuss' famed Christmas villain, and the film's accompanying soundtrack makes good use of contemporary pop to spice up the proceedings. Where else would you find a duet between Carrey and rapper Busta Rhymes ("Grinch 2000"), or a rocking Christmas tune from Ben Folds? Even the notoriously gloomy Eels get into the spirit of things, with the sardonic "Christmas is Going to the Dogs."
Elsewhere, stars of every stripe, from Faith Hill to 'N Sync offer Grinch-specific tunes, which are interspersed with snatches of dialogue from the film and some appropriately wintry orchestral themes from soundtrack king James Horner. Whether you're in it for the Seuss tale or the big-name country, pop, rock, and rap performers, you'll never look at Christmas the same way again after experiencing HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS.
