Heaven Help Us Soundtrack

AKA: Catholic Boys

Songs
The soundtrack for this movie is perfect, with a blend of church classical and early 1960's doo-wop and rock. Especially appropriate is the use of Handel's "Halleujah Chorus" and the songs of the early Temptations, Drifters, and, (I believe) Buddy Holly.

Song Trivia In a pivotal scene between Danni and Michael at the beach, the original theatrical track was "I've Been Loving You" by Otis Redding. However, in every version shown subsequently, the music was changed to "Under the Boardwalk" by the Drifters. (In my opinion, the latter was a vast improvement to the former.)

Score Music Composer(s): James Horner

A 'Limited Archival Pressing' of James Horner's score was produced on CD. Although the movie only used about fifteen minutes of Horner's Irish folk music score, the CD had nearly one hour of music. This is because Horner actually wrote three different scores for the film before the producers settled for his first attempt, the Irish folk music. The second score is very mock classical, not at all Horner like, while the third is typical Horner, soft strings, piano and flute. The latter two scores have never been heard before, making this release a delight for Horner fans.
