Hey everybody!

I was wondering if someone could help me find great soundtracks... I`m looking for soundtracks like Top Gun, Scarface, Rad and similar.

Anyone?

muffy, you are too cool... i am a huge grease 2 fan. and i say it's way better than the first. i constantly get ripped on for having that opinion. [Big Grin]

and i love the soundtrack. my 10 year old daughter loves it too. just the other day, we sang 'girl for all seasons' together while we were cleaning. [Smile]

lately, i have been listening to the SATISFACTION (also known as 'the girls of summer') soundtrack.

What are your current Top Ten 80's Movie Soundtracks?

My list has changed dramatically over time.. in the 80's movies such as Top Gun, Cocktail, Dirty Dancing, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty In Pink would have probably made my list..

Devolution here,

Ok, Great soundtracks vs. Great movies.

1) Valley Girl might be one of the best soundtracks ever. 2 Discs, I like the second one more than the first. Sparks makes that official.

2) Sixteen Candles. I don't know, this could be a tie for number one. I absolutely love it, it ranks second because the actual soundtrack is amazing, and the available one is only ok.

3) The Last American Virgin. Better Luck Next Time and Teen Angel Eyes could have been the only 2 songs and it would have made this list.

4) Vision Quest. Madonna and Lunatic Fringe and Journey and Change. It rocks.

I'll come up with more.

We are DEVO

Ronnie.. what started as a 10 minute project easily turned into an hour for me.

Of course, we had some silmilar selections which is beyond awesome, but I really like the choices of "Eddie & the Cruisers" and "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" on your list. I had both on my list at some point, but they eventually missed my final Top 10. Don't tell Paul, but I change number 10 three times before finally settling on 'Some Kind of Wonderful'.

And the dance scene to "Hands Off" in 'Once Bitten' was in my head, but I couldn't remember the other tunes from the movie last night. Now I recall that '3-Speed' did the title track.. which I love knowing since I can't get enough of "Wind Me Up" from the 'RAD' soundtrack.


Devo.. I thought about 'The Last American Virgin' and will rightfully admit that the soundtrack is great, but the depressing tone of the movie almost shatters some of those tracks for me.

Bohdi.. thanks for The Lost Boys went Breakin' support! interesting combo track..

And Muffy.. who's laughing at 'Perfect' now? Okay, we both still are, but there are some excellent tunes on that soundtrack. I'm still taking "Heavenly Bodies" in a pants off/dance off though.

I wanna love 'Grease 2' .. does that count?

Do soundtracks that were never actually released in the 80's count? See 'More Music from Valley Girl' above. Just askin'.

Incidentally, Valley, can you straighten something out for me? I've had the Valley Girl soundtrack on vinyl since the 80's. I know I'm in the UK, but I keep reading that they never released one? What's the story morning glory?

The curse of Grease 2 (apart from its flop status) is that it was called 'Grease 2'.

My list:

Somewhere in Time - John Barry
E.T. - John Williams (representing all his 80's scores)
Explorers - Jerry Goldsmith (representing all his 80's scores)
Fame - Various Artists
Blade Runner (New American Orchestra Version)
Electric Dreams - Various Artists
Transformers The Movie - Various Artists
Conan the Barbarian - Basil Poledouris
Xanadu - ONJ and ELO
Twin Peaks - Angelo Badalmenti
Neverending Story - Various Artists
Footloose - Various Artists
Breaking Glass - Hazel O'Connor

Logan.. I still own the original "Valley Girl" vinyl LP that was released in the US. Unfortunately, due to copyrights, it only contained six tunes .. like not too cool Julie. But they made up for it later and it definitely still counts!

 -

1. Bonnie Hayes With The Wild Combo - Girls Like Me
2. The Sparks - Angst In My Pants
3. Josie Cotton - School Is In
4. The Plimsouls - Everywhere At Once
5. Josie Cotton - Johnny Are You Queer
6. Bonnie Hayes With The Wild Combo- Shelley's Boyfriend

I actually went out and bought most of the soundtrack on separate albums back then and made my own mixtape soundtrack of "Valley Girl".. I might still have that tape too.
