Some Kind Of Wonderful Soundtrack

AKA:

Songs
The 'way ahead of its time' soundtrack features artists like Jesus-and-the-Mary-Chain, and so many other cool 'pre-grunge' classics that John Hughes saw coming. It is brilliant pastiche of 'intelligent' 80's rock and pop. It includes the seminal track, used at several points in the movie, "(You must be out of your) Brilliant Mind" by Furniture amongst others by such artists as The Jesus And Mary Chain and Stephen Duffy.

The opening track in the film, which doesn't appear on the sound track, is called 'Dr Mabuse' and is taken from the Album 'Secret Wish' By Propoganda, a German group. [Thanks to Andy Nicolson]

The music that is playing during the entire Jenns party scene is an extended dance version Charlie Sexton's "Beat So Lonely". Neither this track nor Billy Idol's "Catch my Fall" appear on the motion picture soundtrack album. [Thanks to John McGovern]
