I just watched Forrest Gump tonight. I had seen it 3 or 4 times in the past, but this is the first time I watched it on Blu-Ray. Now I’m on a mission. The awesome soundtrack is one I am drooling for, and the internet is not making it easy for me. According to Wikipedia, there was a soundtrack CD released–first with 32 tracks of the original songs (not the musical background score–which was released separately–but the actual songs in the movie), then, later, a “Special Edition” version containing two more songs for a total of 34 songs, on two CDs. So it is out there, but I’ll be damned if I can find an MP3 version! Amazon doesn’t have it, so I doubt it’s for sale anywhere. It makes no sense. I have everything I need to convert a CD to MP3’s, but in today’s day and age, I shouldn’t have to. I’ll dig around some more, someone’s gotta have it somewhere. I hate to have to purchase a silly plastic CD case with two more plastic CD discs, then burn them to MP3’s and just let the CDs rot in their case forever. It’s such a waste. But then again, this could be an awesome quest–even the 34-track set is still missing 16 songs that were skipped for some reason. So I could attempt to assemble the ULTIMATE Forrest Gump Soundtrack of my own! I’m sure I already have several of the songs in my collection, so there’s a start. I’ll add comments to this post as I progress. Stay tuned.
