Movie Tunes: Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of the classic Christmas movies that my family and I watch every year. In fact, when I first moved in with my fiance, I insisted that we buy The Grinch on DVD so I could keep up the tradition.
Listening to the soundtrack is just like watching the movie. If you’ve seen the movie enough times, you can picture the story unfolding. It includes all the storytelling parts, the sound effects, and the songs (“You’re a mean one…..Mr. Grinch”).
The story is a charming one, and tells that the true meaning of Christmas isn’t in the presents or the food (although Mike would disagree and say it’s all about his Mom’s turkey and the new HD TiVo he bought). It’s about spending time with those you love.
If you love the movie, the soundtrack is worth it, especially at just about $10 on Amazon, and only $7.99 on iTunes.
