Rugrats in Paris, the music !
The CD cover (Thanks Nicolas !). Click HERE to see the French cover.
Some months before "the Rugrats in Paris" premiere, lots of rumors was running about this soundtrack. The most surprising (in my opinion) comes from Mylène Farmer : I'd never thought I can hear one of her song in a "all audiences" cartoon (the one who know the singer will understand).
Other important point, we can see a big difference in the song's choice. The first soundtrack had a great part of Rugrats songs until the second disk is more "adult" with well know artists... In my opinion, Nickelodeon want to show us a little more that his favorite cartoon is designed for all the family or they only want to hit a larger public...
This soundtrack went out on November, 7th (2000) in the United-States and came in France in the import rubric in the beginning of January in the FNAC (famous French store). I don't know the exact official date...
Little originality of this soundtrack : the American version and the French version are not completely identical. The one sold in the United States include 13 songs and extras (clip, games...) while the one sold in France "only contain music" but their is a bonus track.
The songs' information... for now, it's a little bit empty, but it's going to be filled...

A fan send me the "Rugrats in Paris" promo soundtrack cover. But what is this ? The "promo" is a promotional disc which is sent to the medias (radios, televisions...) to broadcast it. According to the public estimation, the singles are then sold in shops...
More than an advertise tool, this disc is a collector for some people because it's really rare ! (only few copies). The "Rugrats in Paris" soundtrack one is rated 500 Francs ! (should be around 70 $)

The "public's" opinion
The soundtrack is just available and I still have an opinion in my mail. Here it is :
"I hear the Rugrats in Paris soundtrack with pleasure and finally, it's not so bad ! I really love this soundtrack is also a CD ROM. This way, I can saw pictures from the the movie, a trailer... Here is my hot opinion !"
Mister J of Bordeaux
The best songs were O'Connor's "When You Love" and Lauper's "I Want A Mom..."; they were both poignant and touching. The worst song: 2B3's "Pardon My French" -- now I know why it can't be heard in the film.
If you want to say what you think about the soundtrack, write me !
Thanks Steve, Mr J de Bordeaux + all the other people who write me for Mylène Farmer !
