The only thing better than a compilation of the hottest hits in recent memory is a compilation of the hottest hits in recent memory as sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks. That's a fact!
Chipwrecked: Music from the Motion Picture sees Alvin, Simon, Theodore, The Chipettes, and an irate Dave, reinterpret this year's catchiest chart toppers with panache, poise, personality, and real nuts…The Chipmunks & The Chipettes give us a raucous, ultra-catchy and squeaky cover of LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem".
Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" has never sounded so brilliantly badass either as it does when Alvin and Co. are on the mics. "Whip My Tail" is The Chipettes' hilarious take on Willow Smith's oft-covered anthem. However, everything culminates quite climactically on the medley of "Born This Way/Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now/Firework". It's a fitting conclusion to this family-ready opus. It's the perfect companion to the film and undeniable fun for everyone within ear shot.
Makes the best stocking stuffer or Thanksgiving soundtrack…
