Yeah - the SKOW sountrack is probably the best (totally unbiased view, believe it or not!)

Loads of soundtracks had great songs, but this one is the most consistently good.

2) Turn to the Sky
3) Ring Me Up - Divinyls (16)
4) Tenderness - General Public (Weird Science)
5) Catch My Fall - Billy Idol (SKOW)

We are DEVO

As for my favorite (16 candles - by pure numbers)

Hard to pick a fave, all the films had such good use of songs. I'll go with 'Thieves Like Us' during the prom preparation montage in Pretty in Pink.

Then again, I always loved 'Pretty in Pink' by the Furs, too.

'Turn to the Sky' is a corker from SKOW... in fact, don't they all have good songs in them?!

This thread is cruel!

And let's also not forget two additional anthems, Lindsay Buckingham's Holiday Road and John Williams's Somewhere in My Memory, that accurately reflect their respective films' tones but seem not to get that much respect from the establishment when it comes to compiling great movie themes.
