Sadly a soundtrack was never produced. Most of the songs in the movie were purely 80s tracks but songs from previous decades also creep into the mix. The Eagles, "Heartache Tonight" made it into this quintessential 80's movie's soundtrack.
Thanks to Mary
Some of the songs featured in the movie were "Inflatuation" by Rod Stewart (opening credits), "The heart of Rock and Roll" by Huey Lewis and the News (the bonfire party scene), "You might think" by the Cars (The beach party scene), "Lights out" by Peter Wolf (lead singer of the J. Geils Band)(the beach party scene)and "Penny Lover" by Lionel Richie (Slow dance scene during the beach party). Many of these songs were popular during the time of the film's release in '85.

Instrumental Score

Primary Composer(s): Tom Scott

Tom Scott, a celebrated jazz saxophonist, composed the musical score. If you listen carefully, sometimes the music sounds like certain 80's songs.. one example that comes to mind is when the trucker decides to help Gib get to his 'sure thing' if he agrees to pay the tickets, he steps on the gas and the music kicks in, which sounds a LOT like a ZZTop song, I think 'Sharp-dressed man'.
