The producers said in an interview that the songs are from both seasons. I'm actually excited for this!

So excited. I wanted this but without all the crap pop covers, so perfect! I just hope the "Wolf" version is Katherine McPhee - hers really is so much better than Hilty's (the only one available now on Amazon).

That's weird.

Posted by jacobsnchz14 2013-01-06 21:13:02


It will probably be Megan Hilty's version since it was already commercially released. Katherine's wasn't. I wonder if they'd re-record "Dig Deep" without Uma Thurman, because that's the only BOMBSHELL song she recorded and she's no longer in SMASH as far as we've heard.

There will be new BOMBSHELL songs performed this coming season.

I'm excited for this CD! I know I'll like it much better than the currently released CD.

I get the "Let Me Be Your Star" extended version will include the shadow figures and the "Your mother was crazyÂ…" sorta lines.

I didn't know Julian Ovenden had joined the cast, as Jeremy Jordan and Jennifer Hudson seem to be getting all the newbie buzz. I loved him in DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY; so much that I bought the cast recording of Marguerite just to more of him to listen to on my iPod.

According to this article, Target will have a special deluxe edition of the soundtrack that will include bonus content.

BONUS CD SONGS (TARGET EXCLUSIVE)
01) AN INTERVIEW WITH THE SONGWRITERS- Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman
02) "SMASH!" Jane Krakowski
03) "NEVER GIVE ALL THE HEART"- Megan Hilty
04) "SECOND HAND WHITE BABY GRAND"- Christine Ebersole

Other sources are using the different track listing than the one on iTunes and the original post...

Well, I guess now we know that Bernadette's character will be playing Marilyn's mother.

I know nothing about the upcoming season, but I don't think that's a given she'll be playing Marilyn's mother. There are any number of contexts in the (tv) show that she could be singing those songs. It's not like Julia and Tom are in the show, either.

Is it bad that I'm the most excited about Ebersole's rendition of Secondhand White Baby Grand? That will be gorgeous.

She did an interview with, I believe it was Playbill, about a month ago where she said she would in fact be playing Marilyn's mother in the musical

"Thank God that Dig Deep isn't the Uma version."

According to the track listing on Amazon, it is the Uma version.

I am a little disappointed that they are just plugging in the previously recorded tracks as though they existed as such within the show Bombshell. We've only ever heard Let Me Be Your Star as a duet but in the world of the show and the show within the show it's a solo. I'd like to hear what that would sound like.
I already own 10 out of the 22 tracks. I don't want to have to buy them again because it will be cheaper to buy the entire album than it will be to purchase the remaining 12 tracks one at a time.

Seems like they did re-record "Dig Deep" with Hilty instead of Thurman. Thank god.

Posted by OperaBwayLover 2013-01-31 20:00:48


Yay for bonus discs! I preferred Hilty's version of "Never Give All the Heart" to McPhee's. And really looking forward to hearing Christine Ebersole singing "Secondhand White Baby Grand." It's already a lovely song, so to hear her do it will be fantastic.

NBC will release Smash
Posted by kyl3fong2 2013-02-01 10:07:05


I wish they would record both McPhee and Hilty versions of some of those songs, as I actually enjoyed the different vocal takes on them. I really enjoyed McPhee's take on "I Never Met A Wolf Who Didn't Love to Howl" from the Season 1 Finale, and also am interested in hearing her sing "Secondhand White Baby Grand."

Marilyns mom spent most of her life in a mental institution, wonder if maybe Bernadette will be playing her Aunt who was a surrogate mother for her.

I would like to hear Karen singing "Lets Be Bad" and Ivy singing "Don't Forget Me"!!!!

"At Your Feet" looks like either a song for little Norma Jean and who ever Bernadette is suppose to be.

Karen couldn't pull off "Let's Be Bad" in a million years. There's a reason they never had her come close to touching it.

NBC will release Smash
Posted by kyl3fong2 2013-02-01 21:16:04


^I agree. There are definitely certain songs in Bombshell catered towards McPhee's voice (20th Century Fox) and others for Hilty (Let's Be Bad)

Liner notes and plot summary of BOMBSHELL will be included, according to Amazon.

Hmmm... Interested in reading about the show-within-the-show. Wonder if lyrics will be included.

I'm interested to see the story of the show as well.

Can't wait for the clips when they are released. I also found interesting that NBC lists the songs how they would be in the show; I wonder if this is how the show would actually be [or just the season 2 version of bombshell]

NBC will release Smash
Posted by jetts7 2013-02-03 23:21:11


Does anyone else think that "Let's Be Bad" should close Act 1? It would end it out with a bang and I think it would be kind of weird to have a big broadway number in the middle of Act 1.

I ment to say " big broadway number in the middle of Act 2"

Posted by TFMH18 2013-02-04 13:17:45


I agree that it would feel slightly out of place because it is so splashy but it makes sense sequentially because it's supposed to be the indication that Marilyn has become a full fledged drug addict and that she's just totally lost it, leading to her eminent drug-induced suicide..... But that's just me :)

I LOVE it. Love the new extended intro to "Let Me Be Your Star" and I'm loving Hilty's "Dig Deep" as well as McPhee's "Public Relations".

Also, glad to hear Leslie Odom, Jr. being featured in his own Bombshell number too!

Is the listing on the AOL site the actual "set" of the "Show".

NBC will release Smash
Posted by jacobsnchz14 2013-02-05 10:47:55


Meaning does the listing represent the set of musical numbers for "Bombshell"? I believe so; as I mentioned before, liner notes and synopsis for "Bombshell" will be included in the booklet, so we should know how the songs fit in the show's context.

Posted by Tom1071 2013-02-05 11:35:10


They are really capitalizing on making fans of the music pay twice for things they already own. You have to buy the full album. So far, of the tracks that have been released previously the only difference is the extended intro to Let Me Be Your Star.

Tom1071, I was hoping for something like this, I didn't buy any of the physical albums yet. I purchased a few songs from iTunes at the beginning of the season. But I'm looking forward to owning this. My friends bought the first CD and thought I was crazy for waiting!
