Customer Reviews

Classic 80's and 90's music!
Adoni
"Oh, I Love You So," is another fav, and is a bit of a fast-paced pop song that fits in rather well.
C. Pollanen
This is a awesome soundtrack this soundtrack is fun and enjoyable to listen to.

One knows the peril of mixed drinks, but mixed songs? Nah, nothing hazardous. How about to bluesy rock, covers of 1950's songs, new songs, and a classic 1950's song? That sounds like a combination to yet another great soundtrack album from the 1980's--Cocktail.
Starship's energetic "Wild Again" could feel at home on their No Protection album, as it is typical of their late 1980's pop-rock hybrid. The rocking boogie rock/blues of the Fab T-Bird's "Powerful Stuff" made me remember when I first heard them with "Tuff Enuff." It's perfect for any kind of party.
Robbie Nevil's "Since When" has his trademark pinched falsetto with a classic 80's sound. A sharp contrast is the most famous number by the human beatbox himself. Bobby McFerrin's Grammy-winning "Don't Worry Be Happy" began life here before being included on his Simple Pleasures CD. Yes, it's that "song that I wrote, hope you like it note for note. Don't worry, be happy." Another #1 single is the Beach Boys' "Kokomo," proving that they could still make hits two decades after their prime. Aruba, Jamaica, Bermuda, Bahamas, Key Largo, Montego Bay, Martinique, and Port-au-Prince are the Caribbean places named. No, they haven't changed a bit.
Of the cover songs, the Georgia Satellites' raucous cover of Chan Romero's "Hippy Hippy Shake" is the most welcome. They're the perfect 80's band to do a song covered by The Swinging Blues Jeans and yes, the Beatles. John Cougar Mellencamp's cover of Buddy Holly's "Rave On" starts slow but picks up with the folky accordion style from his Lonesome Jubilee album. The original's better, but a good try from JCM. Ry Cooder teases up Elvis's "All Shook Up" with his usual bluesy guitar.

Cocktail is an excellent movie, and the soundtrack is no exception. It combines a nice mix of music; some old, some new, but all just excellent. Some of the songs should be know to radio-friendly listeners, while others won't be, but that shouldn't stop you from buying this compliation. The disc begins with "Wild Again" by Starship. A great rocker, and my personal fav on the album. "Powerful Stuff" is next and is has a great rhythm. "Since When" and "Hippy, Hippy Shake" are nice songs as well, but in between we have that 80's cult hit "Don't Worry, Be Happy." The buzz of this song was something, and to me, is a song that truly represents the high quality, meaningful music that is common to the 80's. John Mellencamp gets to shine with "Rave On" and shine on he does. The inclusion of the classic "Tutti Frutti" by Little Richard is a nice treat too. Ry Cooder is represented by "All Shook Up," (not Mellencamp as listed above. A minor error. (lol)) This song is sort of cool, and I find it to have a bit of funk to it. "Oh, I Love You So," is another fav, and is a bit of a fast-paced pop song that fits in rather well. Lastly, there is perhaps the most popular song on the CD. The always-amazing Beach Boys are here with their ultimate ballad, "Kokomo." This is a fantastic song is so many ways. It has a phenomenal rhythm, great lyrics, and most of all....IT'S THE BEACH BOYS!!! You can still here this classic on the radio, which really tells you that the song is special. All in all, this a great movie soundtrack and I recommend that you pick it up. The music is a little more 80ish, but to me, that's what makes it special. And if you already have it, try something a little different with it....if you ever host a cocktail party, pop this into the CD player and see how long it takes the guests to catch on to the little rib. "Cocktail" during a cocktail party? (lol)

The Cocktail Soundtrack is somewhat inconsistent, but it does include a number of very good and relatively successful cuts. Bobby McFerrin's silly but massively successful "Don't Worry, Be Happy" is the headliner. Also featured is the calypso sound of the Beach Boys "Kokomo" and the Georgia Satellites cover of "Hippy Hippy Shake". For rock & roll purists, Little Richard's "Tutti-Frutti" is included.
This is far from a great album, but it is enjoyable listening.

This is a fantastic soundtrack to a great movie. Even on its own as a compilation, it is still just a great mix with a very nice late 80's feel to it with some Jamaican beats. The one big problem is that it is missing some very key music. I have been trying to piece together a "real" Cocktail soundtrack myself and have had some luck but still need help. If you know where to get these missing songs please leave a comment and help me and everybody looking to get them. Thanks.

1. That Hypnotizing Boogie - David Wilcox (found on the album "Rockin' the Boogie")

2. Chantilly Lace - The Big Bopper (found on Time Life "Rock N' Roll Era: 1958" and on "Hellooo Baby!: The Best of the Big Bopper 1954-1959")

3. Addicted To Love - Robert Palmer (found on the album "Riptide")

4. Shelter of Your Love - Jimmy Cliff (found on the album "Ultimate Collection")

5. Essential Sensual - Wayne Roland Brown (found on the album "Flight of Fancy")

6. When Will I Be Loved - The Everly Brothers (found on the album "When Will I Be Loved?) This is a compilation of original Everly Bros. mono singles. Not sure if this is the correct version of the song from the movie. They re-recorded this song several times.

7. Original Sin (Jumpin' In) - Think Out Loud (found on the album "Think Out Loud") Out-of-Print and cannot find it anywhere for a reasonable price

8. This Magic Moment - Leroy Gibbons (cannot find this one anywhere in its original form)

9. Inside Job - Michael Lanning and Rick Bell (this is score from the movie and not found anywhere but on the movie)

ANY HELP ON THESE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU.
