It's 1971, and racial tension is threatening the popular institution of high school football in Alexandria, Virginia. Into the fray comes newly hired head coach Herman Boone (Denzel Washington), who attempts to save the day and have his charges pull together for a real up-with-people finale. While the film tracks Boone's actions, you get to bask in the familiar, period-specific songs found on the soundtrack, which includes inspirational numbers from Cat Stevens ("Peace Train") and Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, who duet on the inevitable "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Also reflecting the feel of the times are early-'70s staples from the Hollies ("Long Cool Woman [in a Black Dress]"), Eric Burdon & War ("Spill the Wine"), Norman Greenbaum ("Spirit in the Sky"), and Steam ("Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye"). With unexpected highlights such as Ike and Tina Turner's cover of "I Want to Take You Higher" and Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band's ultra-funky "Express Yourself," this album is the feel-good equivalent of a time machine set to 1971.

Remember the Titans based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
This movie is my favorite movie right now. The music is incredibly awesome. Especially the classic stuff.
Whoever wrote the music to Titans Spirit on this disc should be praised greatly. This piece of music is just astounding.
Not only is Remember the Titans known for being an awesome movie, its also known for its awesome songage. Remember the Titans by remembering the songs--wutup?
Typically, I am suspicious of sound track recordings and sports movies...but this one is fabulous!!! I am so glad a friend recommended it.
