How do you put together a soundtrack for a comedy about witches–’90s style? Well, if she’s young and her name is Sabrina, you compile an album of relentless teen pop and R&B hits. But if your witches are a little more mature (and, perhaps, suburban), as in Practical Magic, you use a different formula. And the brew found here is actually a good mix: Faith Hill gets as much play (one track) as Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell. Mitchell’s “A Case of You” is simply great, and Bran Van 3000’s “Everywhere” fits the folk-pop mold nicely, as does upstart Michelle Lewis’s “Nowhere and Everywhere.” The guys are the oddities here: Elvis Presley’s “Always on My Mind” and Harry Nilsson’s “Coconut” give this disc some fun quirks. –Jim Young
