I Also Sing

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

While I’m on the subject of this double dutch movie, what is it with child-actors singing theme songs for their movies? Both stars of Jump In! (Corbin Blue and Keke Palmer) recorded songs for the movie.

Corbin sings the hit “Push it to the Limit.”
Keke’s is the almost-titular jam “Jumpin’.”

I recently saw Bridge to Terabithia (which really requires a post of its own) and during the closing credits AnnaSophia Robb, who plays Leslie in the movie, sings this syrupy number: “Keep Your Mind Wide Open.”

Want more? During the credits of Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams, Alexa Vega sings “Isle of Dreams,” which I actually like, but that’s beside the point. She also sang the theme from Spy Kids 3D: Game Over, aptly titled “Game Over.” That one I don’t like as much, and apparently neither does YouTube.

No one’s got the movie-credits-recap-song down like Will Smith, though. I think his lyrics come from the back of the DVD box. Hey, thanks for recapping the movie I just saw, Will! Check out his recap of Men in Black II.


Stumbled upon your blog while Googling “Keep Your Mind Wide Open”. I like the song and the video’s sweet… I even had to buy the compilation CD that includes this track! AnnaSophia Robb is cool.
