Sublime Soundtracks: Sister Act 1 & 2

If you wanna be somebody... if you wanna go somewhere... you better wake up and see Sister Act 1 and 2.

Sister Mary Clarence: LA LA LA LA LA LA LA!

Choir: LA LA LA LA LA!

Sister Mary Clarence: LA!

Choir: LA!

Ok, so if you haven't seen it, you won't get that... but all the more reason to freaking see it. What are you waiting for? What's wrong with you?

Sorry, sorry... we get that way when we feel strongly about something.

Sister Act (1992) and Sister Act 2: Back in The Habit (1993) are truly religious experiences to Cin-Obs everywhere... pun intended. Whoopi Goldberg is brillz, and the music is rockin'.

The soundtrack album (for the first film) debuted at #74 and eventually reached #40 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart where it charted for 54 weeks. Later in the year of the film's release, Whoopi Goldberg and the film "nuns" performed at a Democratic fundraiser for Bill Clinton. (Wikipedia)

So we weren't the only ones who lurrved it lots! It was a phenomenon!

This musical masterpiece is a triumph. It brings all the right elements together to make a truly sublime soundtrack, for example:

- The old nuns who suck, then get really good
- Rehearsals, montages, and the big performance
- The Vegas Show scene
- The punk kids who turn out to be really talented
- The big competition

Have we convinced you yet? Not to mention the music itself is bloody wonderful.
Ok, ok... talking about music is ridiculuz, you just gotta hear it.

Sister Act: Whoopi (aka Deloris Van Cartier, aka Sister Mary Clarence) whips the ailing nun choir into shape. This is their big reveal as a kick-ass ensemble.

Sister Act 2: The bad-ass ghetto students pull it together with their original rendition of a churchy classic and blow the audience away. We also get reminded that Lauryn Hill can actually sing.

Buy the soundtrack. Listen to it. And make it a habit. (Get it? Nuns... habit... nevermind)

PS - Sister Act is going to Broadway. The music was THAT good.
