  Miss Congeniality Soundtrack
Artist: Various Artists
Label:  TVT Soundtrax
Length: 13 Tracks

How good can a soundtrack be for a movie about someone trying to sabotage a Miss America Pageant?  Well, it could be a bit worse, but then again, it could be a lot better.  The teen friendly film features a song list of similar appeal including some up and coming pop artists like Bosson, P.Y.T. and the A Teens. 

Bosson contributes his hit "One in a Million," which has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award (Best Original Song).  P.Y.T. lends their two cents on "Anywhere U.S.A.," while the A Teens bring fourth a sloppy cover of ABBA's 70s gem "Dancing Queen." Additional covers come from the Latin tinged Los Lobos, who interpret the soulful Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally."  In addition, electronica/ dance king BT revamps the Tom Jones lounge tune "She's a Lady" into a club smash.   Some tracks that could have been left off the list include a ridiculous Berman Brothers remix of William Shatner singing "Miss America" and the obnoxious
Salt-N-Pepa on "None of Your Business."  Despite the lack of solid material, the soundtrack seems to complement an equally weak story line for the film.
