On the other hand, it is great to hear songs like "The Power of Love" and "Back in Time" in full length...those songs totally ROCK!!!! I love "Earth Angel" as well, but was disappointed to hear that the version on the soundtrack does not include the sound of guitar strings (which we heard Marty playing thoughout the whole song in the movie). "Johnny B. Goode" is another favorite of mine and I found it satisfying to hear it in full length on the album, though it did not include Marty's improvised hard rock guitar solo (one of the highlights of the movie, yes, but if it was included in the soundtrack, it would hinder our chances of hearing the whole song).
But even though my reasons for owning this recording was to add to my library of Reagan-era pop, it did introduce me to the world of symphonic music. Up until that time, I never cared much for symphony, be it classical or modern. Alan Silvestri's efforts added just the right tone to the movies' many tense and exciting moments. His BTTF overture got me curious enough to check out the works of other great notable soundtrack composers, including Jerry Goldsmith (Star Trek I, V, VIII & IX, Total Recall), James Horner (Star Trek II, III), Basil Poledouris (RoboCop, Starship Troopers, Conan) and especially John Williams (The Star Wars & Indiana Jones Trilogies, Superman The Movie). Of course it also helps that I'm a big fan of the films that these composers wrote music for. Ironically, my interests in other Silvestri pieces is minimal. I don't even know any other movies he's scored tunes for aside from the BTTF trilogy!
This soundtrack also introduced me to Eric Clapton. Sadly, I was less than impressed by his '(Heaven is) One Step Away'.Read more ›
All of the songs were good, but I fell in love with the songs that the orchestra played. I listen to the CD in my car and it really makes me want to have a lead foot until I reach 88 MPH. I know it sounds stupid, but this music can get you excited. The score for this movie was very well done. If you have bought the soundtrack to "Superman", you know how excited you can get.
What I thought was strange was one of the songs. Do you remember when Marty comes back from the past and can't get the car started? The song that was being played on the radio where that homeless person was sleeping on the bench is on the CD. If you ask me, tracks 3 and 6 are the best.
This CD is worth your money.
