Hollyoaks the Soundtrack: Part 1

Yeah Yeah, I know it's been forever since I've posted something here but you know...that's how it goes sometimes.

Okay, if you've read either this blog or Shooting Stars Mag before then chances are you have heard me talk about the UK soap Hollyoaks. I really wish I had this show so I could watch the full episodes, but courtesy of awesome youtube people, I've been able to follow certain character's storylines for the most part...I get most of it, at least.

Through my love of Hollyoaks, I have come to realize that a lot of the actors and actresses on the show can sing. No big surprise there, as a lot of people in the U.S. have similar dual talents. However, I think that Hollyoaks should have their very own SOUNDTRACK, with songs by PAST and PRESENT cast members. These songs of course would be cover songs, most likely, as that is the easiest way to go.

It would be amazing and I'm sure a lot of people would pick up a copy, especially the U.S. fans of the show that can't really enjoy all things Hollyoaks based on where we live, and the c.d. could give a percent of the money to a charity or something too if they wanted. Basically, it should just happen.

"Use Somebody"-Gerard McCarthey (plays Kris Fisher)

"Hear You Me"-James Sutton (played John Paul McQueen)

"Molly's Chamber"-Barry Sloaned (played Niall)

"Take a Chance on Me" - Jodi Albert (played Debbie Dean). Also includes Carley Stenson (plays Steph Dean)

"Candyman"-Carley Stenson (plays Steph Dean)

Hollyoaks the Soundtrack: Part 2

"Jailhouse Rock"-Chris Fountain (plays Justin Burton)

"Unbelievable"-Gemma Merna (plays Carmel McQueen) and Andrew Moss (plays Rhys Ashworth). This song also includes Carley Stenson (plays Steph Dean) and Chris Fountain (plays Justin Burton)

T-Rex Medley-Kevin Sacre (played Jake Dean), Loui Batley (plays Sarah Barnes), Summer Strallen (played Summer). This also includes Gerard McCarthey (plays Kris Fisher).

"Amy Josh Forever" by the Baby Diegos- Ashley Slanina-Davies (plays Amy Barnes)

"Play" by the Dirty Diegos - Hollie Jay Bowes (plays Michaela McQueen). If you youtube this song, you'll find the actual video.

Now, those are just ten examples of people that can sing, and not all of the videos are ONE person really it would probably be more. The following are people that I know or heard can sing, but I couldn't find a video for them.

Sonny Flood (Josh Ashworth)
Garnon Davies (Elliott)
