Lots of good stuff on their 80s sister station too:

Here are just a few of my favorite 80s soundtracks:

Top Gun
Rocky IV
Real Genius
Beverly Hills Cop
Secret of My Success
Thief of Hearts

As you can see I'm a big Harold Faltermeyer fan [Smile]

I´m also a huge Faltermeyer fan and try to collect all his stuff.

Just bought and watched Fire and Ice (1986)

Silly movie but it includes great ski stunts, snowboarding, windsurfing, break dance,
all that 80s craziness that we love [Cool]

There´s some good songs on the soundtrack.
Check out this Faltermeyer theme song, pure magic!

I have the Real Genius soundtrack, although it's missing "The Tuff Do What" by Tonio K which I've never been able to find anywhere on any recorded medium. My favorite rare soundtrack is The Last American Virgin. I see people selling boots of that occasionally, but never with the Dancing Brass and Los Fabulosos 3 Paraguayos songs included. I found those a couple years ago and now have the complete 22-track original soundtrack.

I just picked up the Thief of Hearts soundtrack on LP. I don't have a record player so it's just decorating my wall right now. [Smile] The only place I can listen to the tracks for now are on the sites I mentioned above.

Devolution here,

I have a lot of oddball songs from soundtracks mainly through friends at this site. Better off Dead, Summer school, Spring Break, Pump up the Volume, Secret Admirer, and modern girls to name a few.

Where's Cindy Mancini when you need her?

I was lucky and found the Better Off Dead soundtrack on CD in a store last month. Of course I bought it ... cause I'd be better of dead without it!

I am seriously going to have to check out some of these soundtracks you all have mentioned. I don't remember most of them! Some that reallyh stand out for me are Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Vision Quest, Footloose, Streets of Fire, To Live and Die in LA. It might have been more how the music was used in the movie or set against the scene than the actual soundtrack listening to driving around in your car, but they sure left an impression anyways...p.s. Say Anything...Dobler holding the boom box over his head with the strains of Peter Gabriel coming out has been referenced time and again, but man is that a great scene at that point in the movie...love Vangelies from Chariots as well...man I better stop now!

Whatever happened to Elizabeth Daily? I guess Madonna and Cyndi Lauper had too much of a share in that market.

I have a bunch of soundtracks in my mom's attic that I need to pull out. I used to grab every soundtrack I could find from the Tower Records bargain bin back then. I definately have:
Better Off Dead
Summer School
Footloose
Labyrinth
Return of the Living Dead (Picture disc)
Omen-Was very rare at the time.
Meatballs
Secret of my Success
The Warriors
Beverly Hills Cop
Sixteen Candles
Valley Girl
Bugsy Malone-still in the plastic

That's all I remember off the top of my head but once I get them i'll post a complete list.

Two that I have ALWAYS been on the lookout for on CD, but could never find are Back To School and Weird Science. Occassionally I will YouTube Jude Cole for the Back To School theme!

Get a record player LOL: http://www.amazon.com/FLETCH-ORIGINAL-SOUNDTRACK-LP-1984/dp/B0011Z4MJS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1248629656&sr=1-2

Seriously though, I want them too! This soundtrack is sooo rare! I saw one CD selling on Amazon a couple months ago for like $150. Looks like someone grabbed it.
