October Baby (Life is Beautiful)

So, I am in love with the movie October Baby.
It's clean and family friendly. 
It is a movie that was made to raise awareness about the cruelty of abortion. In the movie, you travel alongside a 19 year old girl named Hannah, who finds out she was adopted as a baby. Not only was she adopted but she was the victim of a "failed" abortion. The movie shows her discovering the truth about her birth while finding peace and building a better relationship with her father. It's great.

But what I love even more than the movie is the soundtrack!
The songs are amazing! I have listened to them over and over. There are two songs on the CD that I don't like. One called "Make it Without You" which seems like it's a song about divorce. I am completely puzzled as to why they even have this song on the album. The other is called "When a Heart Breaks". The reason I don't care for this particular track is because of a line they put in the chorus. It states "..and you don't need Jesus, until you're here...". Now I have had a few friends interpret the song differently and they believe the song writer means this figuratively  That whoever is being sung about, doesn't think he/she needs Jesus until his/her heart actually breaks and he/she has no where else to turn. I personally, don't like having the song stuck in my head because the song doesn't clarify that part enough for my liking. This is just a personal preference. 


The album is outstanding! Just the song titles themselves are great. Every song is whimsical and inspirational. Below is the complete song list for the album. I put stars by my favorite... :)
