Bobby - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
by Various Artists
Island Def Jam
Period films often muddle up their soundtracks with contemporary artists doing mediocre covers of classic cuts. The soundtrack for Bobby, the Robert Kennedy biopic, refreshingly overflows with (mostly) original songs by luminary artists indicative of the time. Aretha Franklin holds it down with the soulful strut of "Baby I Love You" and Marvin Gaye's mono version of "Ain't That Peculiar" is so groovy you'll totally forget about Demi Moore's sultry stab at Richard Berry's garage rock classic "Louie Louie."
