Forgotten Soundtracks

Postby St. Alphonzo on Wed Sep 07, 2005 2:16 am

I've begun the fairly lengthy process of archiving all of my vinyl into MP3s. As I've been wading through endless late '70s - early '80s K-tel and Ronco compliations, out-of-print O.M.D. albums and Bob & Doug McKenzie (thinking of you BB), I've also discovered some fucking great soundtracks to movies I'd completely forgotten about. Here are two to get things started:

"Absolute Beginners" - a relentlessly mediocre Julien Temple musical, but the soundtrack, listened to out of context with the movie, is simply incredible! Two great tracks from Bowie, a lost Ray Davies tune, and a performance from Patsy Kensit ("Having It All") that is like musical viagra. Sade has a pretty sweet jazz tune ("Killer Blow") as well.

"Streets of Fire" - Each side of this album begins with a song by Fire, Inc, as written by Jim Steniman (channeling Meat Loaf's "Bat Out Of Hell"). But the real jem in here is "I Can Dream About You" by Dan Hartman, which is quite possibly the greatest pop tune of the '80s. Add in a classic Fixx number ("Deeper And Deeper"), and the image of a young and unbelievably hot Diane Lane lipsyncing to several of the tunes, and we have an outstanding piece of vinyl. Is this thing on CD?

What other soundtracks need to be rediscovered?

Goddamn right! A truly underrated Queen contribution. Their soundtrack to "Highlander" is great too.

And "Iron Eagle":

Iron Eagle, damn I love that one. I used to have the soundtrack for Pump Up the Volume on cassette. Say Anything is another one I'd like to get again.

Yes! I forgot about "Pump Up The Volume". Concrete Blonde doing "Everybody Knows", Ivan Neville with "Why Can't I Fall In Love". "Look Dad, I'm In Jail" was in the movie, but I can't remember if it was in the soundtrack. A pre-fame Soundgarden had a tune on there too, I think.

You're right. There were a few songs on the movie that weren't on the soundtrack. I need to pick that up again. For fun eighties tunes Grosse Pointe Blank had two cool soundtracks. Faith No More We Care A Lot. Violent Femmes, etc. etc.

Two Words: Tangerine Dream

Their score to LEGEND is awesome.

Another '80s fantasy STs I like... Neverending Story (with the super cheesy '80s opening credits song and great score afterwards). Great stuff there... the swamps of eternal sadness fucked my shit up when I was a kid...

The Neverending Story, Limal (spelling?), lead singer of one hit wonders Kajagoogoo, goes solo and is a one hit wonder with The Neverending Story...
Thus making him a double one hit wonderer...

Yeah. To this day I still issue those words as a challenge to people. Like if a buddy is being a puss, I say, "C'mon, dance into the fire bro." Or if I'm putting the hurt down on a video-game I'll taunt, "DANCE INTO THE FIRE BITCH!" Or if somebody's starting shit at a bar I step up with, "You wanna dance into the fire mother-fucker?"

It would be even better if you brought an MP3 player everywhere you went. Just as you issue the threat turn it on. It would be like your own personal action adventure soundtrack.

I believe they also wrote the theme to Streethawk, which was also excellent!

I really like Stewart Copeland's soundtrack to Rumblefish - almost no lyrics, I like that. The soundtrack to Midnight Cowboy is pretty damn good - I love Rizzo's paradise fantasy music.

I don't know if the 70s TV show Monkey Magic was popular in the US, but the theme tune to that show is one of the greatest disco tunes of all time, in my opinion.

Weird Science had a pretty good soundtrack too. Oingo Boingo, Killing Joke ("Eighties"). Wasn't "Tenderness" by General Public in that one?

Pretty much in general Hughes movies had good soundtracks.

How many points do I get for having both Miami Vice soundtracks on cassette?

I have the first Miami Vice soundtrack on beautiful vinyl. So we both get points!

And I used to wear loafers with no socks.

I guess I should have saved that one for the Confessional thread.

i got two:
from the 80s: the movie was Birdy (matthew modine i think) and the soundtrack was done by Peter Gabriel. its all instrumental, and its all taken from his hits, but its awesome (if you like Gabriel).
from the 90s: Singles. captured the seattle scene almost perfectly (no nirvana, though). the movie actually had Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam (as Citizen Dick), Soundgarden etc.

YES! I still love the Singles soundtrack. What a great time to be a Seattleite. Seattle's had some great music over the years, but it's never been the focus of the music scene like it was in the early 90's. Good times.

I'm a huge Gabriel fan, and I love that soundtrack! Never seen the movie though. Is it any good?

Another great '80s soundtrack: "Bright Lights Big City". The movie was shit, but the soundtrack had New Order, Bryan Ferry, and that "Pump Up The Volume" tune by M/A/A/R/S.

Is that one of yours Dino? If so I'm puttin' it right at the top of my queue. By the way, I heard Joe Dolce's "Shaddap You Face" for the first time in about 10 years yesterday. I couldn't get your image out of my mind while it was playing.

Same goes for "Long Walk Home", Gabriel's soundtrack to Rabbit-Proof Fence. It has the germ of what would become a great song, "Sky Blue" in it.

I also liked The Crow soundtrack. And the soundtrack to Dazed and Confused has some pretty good 70's rock.

*gets out the box of soundtracks*

I forgot about singles. I absolutely love the Smashing Pumpkins song on there. (Fuck it, may as well listen to it while I write this.) I think the Pearl Jam songs were the first time I actually liked their stuff. I'm amazed that those don't get played on the radio. I miss Layne Staley.

Suburbia. One of the most cohesive soundtracks I have ever heard. It actually works as an album instead of a calculated collection of songs put together as part of a marketing plan. It's got the likes of Sonic Youth, Girls Against Boys, Beck, and Butthole Surfers.

It's been a while since I listened to it but I remember The End of Violence as being good. It's got Ry Cooder, Spain, DJ Shadow, Tom Waits, Los Lobos, and U2 w/ Sinead O'Connor.

Hardly anyone saw A Life Less Ordinary and even fewer bought the soundtrack. It's got a great Beck song and an REM remix. Throw in Luscious Jackson, Ash, Folk Implosion, The Cardigans, and even Elvis for a great mix.

I enjoyed the hell out of Dead Man On Campus and its soundtrack. Marilyn Manson covers Bowie to great effect and Great Band Nobody Ever Heard of Creeper Lagoon. Check out the duet of supermodel Twiggy and Twiggy Ramirez at the end of the album.

Songs In The Key of X. Foo Fighters cover Gary Numan and William S. Burroughs sings for REM? And you thought the show was weird. If you have the CD check out the hidden track at the beginning of the album.

Ever hear of All Over Me? I only recently saw it but I got the soundtrack when it came out because they mailed it to the radio station I was working at. The majority of it is women which I'm sure is in keeping with the lesbian themes of the movie. Babes In Toyland, Ani Difranco, Sleater Kinney, Helium, Patti Smith Group, Tuscadero, and one of my favoritest bands ever The Geraldine Fibbers.

Admit it, you only saw Foxfire because Angelina Jolie takes off her shirt. Most of the bands on here I haven't heard of but it works really well as an album. It does have L7, The Cramps, Luscious Jackson, and Kristen Hersh.

Great Expectations. Been a long time but I remember loving this a lot. Chris Cornell, Mono, Tori Amos, Duncan Shiek, Iggy Pop, David Garza, and Scott Weiland.

Romeo + Juliet was another one that I enjoyed a lot when it came out. Garbage, Radiohead, Butthole Surfers, and The Cardigans.

I had to keep Out To Sea purely for the novelty of the songs that Brent Spiner sings.

It's mostly score but tomandandy's Killing Zoe is some interesting stuff.
