4.0 out of 5 stars Sneak some variety into your soundtrack collection. October 31, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
At first glance, the "Dream a Little Dream" soundtrack was a track we thought we'd never hear again. After all, it was targeted at a miniscule audience: Corey Haim and Corey Feldman were a tag team aimed squarely at GenXers in the eighties. This soundtrack gave the movie a big boost of sophistication by getting away from the techno-hip-I-just-bought-a-new-synthesizer genre of the mid-eighties.
The "Into the Mystic" track is a beautifully recorded acoustic by Van Morisson, an actual studio version that surpasses the one on his "greatest hits" album. Also adding some prestige to this album is Otis Redding's "I've Got Dreams to Remember." (This song really made the movie's most mental scene work.) This is a song we'd never remember to buy if we were browsing for something on the shelf: Sometimes a good album lures you into good music.
When it does play some of the music of its time, this soundtrack gives you two songs that stand for the good things about eighties music: End of the World by R.E.M. cooks the way it ought, and the lyrics of "Time Runs Wild" remind you just how tough it was to be a kid, which may (or may not) have been the theme of the movie. It finally combines the old and the new with its second version of "Dream a Little Dream", where a fifties-style singer duets with an eighties-type singer. The contrast is almost educational.
Let me sum up this soundtrack this way: I bought the cassette back in 1988 or so because it had R.E.M.'s "End of the World". That tape being history, I want the CD because of Van Morisson and Otis Redding. How's that for some sophistication?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie made great by a superior soundtrack October 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
To really appreciate the music on this soundtrack, i would suggest that those who haven't seen the movie, go out and rent it. The reason is because each song on the soundtrack is perfectly matched with the appropriate scene in the movie. Like the reviewer below has said: "It transports you back to the scene in which it is played." The song "Dream a little dream of me" (both versions), is a nice, upbeat song that appeals to anyone with a happy sense of life. It's almost as if the song were specifically written for such people, those that are young and/or young at heart. It was a perfect song for the gym scene with Corey Feldman and Meredith Salenger, whom in my opinion, had extraordinary chemistry in the movie. Michael Damian's song "Rock on" hit #1 back in the days and makes me think of cavalier generation X'ers,lol. Nice song, but my fave on the soundtrack is the song "Time runs wild". Again, an upbeat song that can't be fully appreciated unless you check out the corresponding scene in the movie. This movie and soundtrack brings me back to my youth (although 24 isn't that old) and some of the best times of my life. Fans, feel free to email me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare must have for those with real taste September 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As one of the biggest fans of this movie EVER, I have to say that the soundtrack is fantabulous. If for no other reason than the fact that I can't afford to put a VCR in my car. Every song on the soundtrack transports me back to the scene in which it is played. The only thing is missing is "Young At Heart" (Frank Sinatra, I believe), which plays in more than one important scene. Regardless, a great soundtrack to a great movie. I can't get enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dream A Little Dream Indeed... October 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Awe inspiring. That is my basic review for the film, "Dream A Little Dream". Now, here is my review for a soundtrack that is, much like its film counterpart, often over-looked and under-appreciated. The film stars our boys Corey Feldman and Corey Heim, who were, in my opinion, two of the best teen actors of the 1980's. I saw this film about a year after it came out, and the soundtrack is, in part, what attracted me to this film. My favorite song in the movie... Well, I have no real favorite, but a few high ranking pieces would have to be "Rock On", "Dreams Come True", and "Where is She" (a title which, sadly, is not included on the soundtrack, and as far as I know, was never released on CD. The artists behind the song were Blue Future). The "Dream A Little Dream" rock themes were extremely nice to hear, and I love both variations. This film is a true gem, as is the soundtrack. If anyone who loved this film reads this, take my advice and buy this soundtrack. (Hey, this is coming from a guy who listens to the Offspring and the occasional Rob Zombie. Trust me when I say that ANYONE can enjoy the music of "Dream A Little Dream, young and old alike)

5.0 out of 5 stars All in All Amazing June 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not only is the movie amazing complete with such talented and extrodinary actors but the music in the movie is placed so well. when watching the movie the music makes you feel the emotions of the characters. It seems like each song is perfectly in sync with each scene. The songs that were put onto the soundtrack are some of the best 80's songs I know of. I'm a little sad that "Young at Heart" didn't make it on there but the rest of the compilation makes up for it. I HIGHLY recommend the movie and this soundtrack.
