In Valley Girl, in the club that Randy and Julie go to with Fred and Stacy; the band that is playing is called "The Plimsouls." This was an authentic 80's, LA band of the time. After recording two independent albums, they released an album on Geffen Records in 1983 titled "Everywhere At Once" [which includes their songs heard in Valley Girl] and were named Best LA Band. Songwriter and lead singer, Peter Case, has numerous solo releases and continues to record and play live to this day. They also cut a couple of singles; one of which is "Million Miles Away," which is featured in the movie. -Thanks to Kathy / Bryan Simmons
Like several low budget 80s teen movies, some of the songs used in the movie changed when the film came out on video. "Mickey", "He Was Really Saying Something", "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" and "Cool Places" were featured in the original theatrical version of the film, and they appear on the soundtrack (Volume 2). -Thanks to Craig Davis
The band playing at the prom in "Valley Girl" is actually 'Josie Cotton', and the two main songs featured are her (only?) semi-hits, "Johnny Are You Queer?" and "He Could Be the One". -Thanks to Chris GivensAdd some more trivia about the songs used in Valley Girl
