The soundtrack includes the massive hits "Ain't nobody" and "Ain't no stoppin' us". It is very rare on CD, having only ever been produced in West Germany by Polygram in the 80's. Use our buying guide to locate a copy.
The song "Tour De France" which plays under Turbo's Broom-dance scene was performed by 70's synth pioneers Kraftwerk in the film, but did not appear on the soundtrack album. An easier to find (in the 80's at least) version of the song appeared on the K-Tel instructional LP "Breakdance" performed by 10 Speed. (I actually enjoy the latter!!) [Thanks to Eric Carpenter]

The missing songs from the movie such as Kraftwerk's "TourDeFrance", Art Of Noise's "BeatBox" and more are found in the Album "Spider" which is a rare find. I had the golden chance to see and listen to some of it during the breakdance seasons in the 80's. It includes some of the background songs from the movie.
Another song I remember from the album was "Whodini's Escape, I Need A Break" which is still my favourite.
The great electro tune played in the club where Shabba-Doo was surprised with a defeat is called "Tibetan Jam" by Ice-T, The Glove, and Dave Storrs. Unfortunately, it too is not on the soundtrack. [Thanks to BShea for the update]
The album cover has Turbo with a hip balance dance pose. Forgot that dance move also. Could anyone run a search to find more details on this or maybe even contact the recording company to shed more details? I'm sure this would be appreciated by most "Breakin" or "Breakdance" fans if they could get their hands back on those superb tunes. -Thanks to BlackeAdd some more trivia about the songs used in Breakin'
