Back To School Soundtrack
The music in the film is a good mix of 80's pop music.
During the scene when the tough guys are having a party, dressed as cave men, a song called "Everybody's Crazy" is playing in the background. It's a song by Michael Bolton, he did a hair band style rock album back then of which this was the title track (pre adult contemporary cheese). I just thought it might be interesting because virtually nobody knows that he did such an album. [Thanks to Jason Fortier / Brad Duren]
Alice Cooper wrote a song for the "Back to School" soundtrack, but it was not included in the film. The song, titled "The Great American Success Story" is on his 1986 MCA album "Constrictor". [Thanks to Brad Duren]
It's a shame that Rodney Dangerfield's live (no lip synching like Ferris Bueller) rendition of 'Twist & Shout' wasn't included on the soundtrack...
