Songs from Ally McBeal is an album by Vonda Shepard released in 1998 as a soundtrack for the American television series Ally McBeal.
It reached number three in the UK album charts and was a success in the US, Canada and many European countries too. The song "Searchin' My Soul," co-written by Shepard with Paul Gordon, was used as the Ally McBeal theme tune, and an earlier version had been featured on one of Vonda Shepard's previous albums, The Radical Light. The majority of the songs, however, are covers of old songs whose lyrics reflected what was happening in Ally's life onscreen.
It peaked No. 1 in Spain for a month in the summer of 1999, thanks to a big promotion in radios, Vonda Shepard shows in Madrid and Barcelona and the TV series, with the album selling more than 500,000 copies. It is a gold record in Poland.

I also moved on to YouTube -- bless the Internet agers for making life so ezy to get to one's fave singers/songs, and there is conflicting claims about the TV series' THEME SONG -- Is it IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD as claimed by a Utube number? OR is it ""Searchin' My Soul" ?

Anyway, I jest ENJOY my afternoon snnoze listenin' to a collection of 30 songs from, YES, Ally McBeal's via LINK:
