Score Trivia

Rewind Archive
No wonder Tangerine Dream's score works so well for the night scenes. According to Paul Brickman, they would always start work at dinner time and then work through the night in the converted church studio that they owned.

Paul Brickman recalled that Tangerine Dream's first pass at the score was a disaster:

"It was clear they were trying to write music to a typical teen movie. The chord changes were like '50s and '60s teenage rock. I remember going, "Oh, man. Do we start looking for new composers or do we stick with these guys?" That's when we — the music supervisor, producer Jon Avnet and I — got on a plane and went to Berlin. We hung out in Tangerine Dream’s studio for ten days and knocked out the score with them."
