The 2008 remake of George Cukor's 1939 film THE WOMEN features a stellar cast including Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Bette Midler, and many more, but the soundtrack is just as jam-packed with leading ladies. From old favorites like Annie Lennox, who contributes two tracks, to fresh faces like ethereal electro-pop songstress Alison Goldfrapp and alt-pop troubadour Lucy Schwartz, the film's audio companion offers just as many resonant female voices as its cinematic sister, touching on everything from cutting-edge R&B to acoustic balladry along the way.
