Song Trivia In 'Les Girls', where Chris Penn and crew are enjoying some wild entertainment. Suddenly a fight breaks out. In the AMC Classic version, the background music is Madonna's 'Com'in Up for Your Love,' while the VHS tape is an older blues/ jazz tune, most likely on the soundtrack. Interesting, how they changed it. I much preferred the Madonna tune as the background.

Score Trivia The score for The Wild Life was written entirely by Eddie Van Halen. In the part where Chris Penn falls out of his girlfriend's window, there is a particular wailing guitar solo of Eddie's that was later used in a scene from "Back To The Future". In the scene where Marty sneaks into George McFly's room to scare him into asking his future mom out to the dance, Marty dresses up in a radiation suit and puts headphones on a sleeping George, and wakes him up with that same wailing guitar solo. Oddly enough, Eric Stolz was originally cast as Marty McFly but later replaced after shooting almost half the movie. -Thanks to Mickie Rat

There is a scene where Wyatt greets his friend outside Donut City. The background music is the exact same melody that Eddie Van Halen would turn into the hit song "Right Now" off "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge" a decade later!

In addition, some of the underscore heard by Eddie Van Halen would also later become the main riff in "Good Enough" from the 5150 album -Thanks to Lawrence Miles / Zeman
