It’s that time again, people.

That is, it’s time for my next post in the Soundtrack Lovin’ series! And this post is being dedicated to another favorite movie of mine – Save the Last Dance (2001). It’s about a white girl whose mother dies suddenly so she is forced to move to a very urban, largely African-American populated part of Chicago with her estranged father. Having to, of course, switch schools to a predominantly black school, she meets a black guy and the two bond over their love of dance while facing interracial relationship challenges; he also helps her rediscover her forgotten love for ballet. It’s a lovely movie, really. It features Julia Styles and Sean Patrick Thomas, who provides major  eye candy for the ladies. 😉

The soundtrack is really slammin’ (that’s some slang from the movie) and and I really hope you guys take a chance to listen to it or at least watch the movie.

Ayolah 🙂

You Make Me Sick – P!nk

And most people don’t even know about P!nk’s R & B days.

Crazy – K-Ci & JoJo

Only You – 112 (feat The Notorious B.I.G. & Mase)

And my personal favorites…

You Can Do It – Ice Cube (feat. Mack 10 & Ms. Toi)

I really wish I could have found a video for this scene on YouTube because this is honestly one of the best parts of the movies. Sarah (Julia Styles) has been learning how to dance with a little bit of flavor from Derek (Sean Patrick Thomas) and she finally showcases a routine he taught her at the local club. The routine is widely loved, of course.

You – Raphael Saadiq  (feat. Q-Tip & Snoop Dogg)

Murder She Wrote – Chaka Demus & Pliers

This is one of the BEST dance songs. EVER. And I’m still listening to it years later and it was first released in the 1990s. I think that’s saying something. This scene from the movie is also really awesome.

U Know What’s Up – Donell Jones
