An instance where the title states everything: the 12 tunes on The Soundtrack of My Life are the tracks that Donny Osmond loves, the tunes that claim something to him regarding his life. Keep in mind that this does not imply these are songs he"s sung prior to (although he did end up vocal singing Steely Dan"s "Peg" at a 1979 Miss World contest). These are tracks that implied something to Donny. Usually, they are Motown tracks-- Stevie Marvel"s "My Cherie Affair" was the initial 45 Osmond ever before bought, however "Ben" and also "Child Love" are right here as well-- as well as there are various other MOR staples that have actually been often covered because the late "60s/early "70s: "Moon River," "Your Tune," "The Long as well as Winding Roadway." Osmond digs back right into Sinatra through "I"ve Obtained You Under My Skin," teases with modern songs with Peter Gabriel"s "Don"t Quit" (a track that"s almost thirty years old, however the intent matters), and also discovers a couple of tracks that aren"t also recognized ("The Present of Love," "Can She Be Mine," "Survivor"), however at a specific factor the tunes wear"t issue as high as the shipment. Every little thing right here is pitched towards a Las vega performance-- amazing, glossy, as well as schmaltzy with simply a tip of modern-day luster-- most noticeable when he offers "Peg" a light transformation by means of Robin Thicke. It"s this tone, anxious to please and also satisfied to be on the phase, that states as much concerning Osmond as the tracks he"s picked to represent his life.
