the powerful ballads that really proved Midler doesn't have to be coddling a dying
friend on screen to move an audience. 'Wind Beneath My Wings' (previously recorded
by such people as Sheena Easton, Willie Nelson, and Perry Como) articulates the
movie's theme of enduring friend ship, and Midler's heartfelt delivery conveys
the message a lot more succinctly and satisfyingly than the film. As a movie,
Beaches isn't exactly divine. As a soundtrack, it rates an M for marvelous.
