Editorial Reviews

Album Notes All tracks have been digitally remastered.Principal cast includes: Jeremy Kushnier (Ren McCormack); Catherine Cox (Ethel McCormack); Stephen Lee Anderson (Reverend Shaw Moore); Dee Hoty (Vi Moore); Jennifer Laura Thompson (Ariel Moore); Catherine Campbell (Lulu Warnicker); Adam LeFevre (Wes Warnicker); Donna Lee Marshall (Eleanor Dunbar/Doreen); John Hillner (Coach Dunbar); Stacy Francis (Rusty).Recorded at the Hit Factory, New York, New York. Includes liner notes by Dean Pitchford.FOOTLOOSE was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.This is a Super Audio CD playable only on Super Audio CD players.By the tail end of the '90s, everything was grist for the pop culture mill, which recycled and redefined itself at an alarming rate, especially in the world of musical theater. In the '80s, FOOTLOOSE was a cheesy teen movie starring the notoriously ubiquitous Kevin Bacon as a rebel in a small town whose only cause seems to be a sock hop. Nearly 15 years later, FOOTLOOSE had been transformed into a successful Broadway musical, where the somewhat dubious plot took a backseat to elaborate dance numbers and, of course, songs. The original FOOTLOOSE soundtrack featured hits by Kenny Loggins and Deniece Williams that were pure '80s pop at its most unapologetic. A bit of the synthesized '80s sheen has been sanded off for the stage, and there's more traditional-sounding Broadway-style music here than you might expect, but if the songs grabbed you in their original form, you'll find whole different side to that material as presented here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost? It IS Paradise August 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This has got to be one of the #1 best all around soundtracks of all time. There is not one throw away track; there isn't one song I have to skip. This movie was such a huge turning point for me as a child, I begged my mom to let me take dance classes other than ballet and she let me take a freeform dance class and I was obsessed with the song "dancing in the sheets" so that was my song of choice, I tore those mats up.

1. Footloose - Kenny Loggins.... Yes its played a lot on the 80s stations, Yes its Kenny Loggins but it's a great wedding song! Its addictive and I dare you not to sing along!

2. Let's Hear It For the Boy - Denise Williams .... I lip-synched this song to Kevin Ashley at summer camp, its good clean teeny bop fun.

3. Almost Paradise (Love Theme) - Ann Wilson/Mike Reno ...Wow, this is such a school dance song, smell the polo cologne while you lean against that boy crushes shoulder song

4. Holding Out For A Hero - Bonnie Tyler ...Bonnie has a sweet voice, its harsh but powerful and this song showcases that talent

5. Dancing In The Sheets - Shalamar ....I still remember the choreographed dance that Michelle MacAdams and I did on her trampoline to this song, its so good. My favorite out of this soundtrack.

6. I'm Free (Heaven Helps The Man) - Kenny Loggins ...When I hear this song, I think of them on the motorcycles in the movies, and the kids go by on the bikes, Kenny is a genius!

7. Somebody's Eyes - Karla Bonoff ...although a bit weak, it's my least favorite, it still gets to me as a good 80s ballad

8. Girl Gets Around, The - Sammy Hagar .....Who doesn't want to play chicken with a semi when they hear this song

9. Never - Moving Pictures....

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm turning it loose, footloose... July 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The 1980's were a great period for soundtrack songs but also soundtrack albums. Heavy Metal, Rocky IV, Top Gun, Ghostbusters, and then the soundtrack for the movie Kenny Loggins thought should've been called A Snowball's Chance In Hell, because that's what he thought it had at the box office. Well, that wasn't the case for Footloose or the soundtrack, which spawned five hit singles, one of which was sung by him and spent 4 weeks at Billboard's #1 spot.
Yes, Mr. Soundtrack himself, Kenny Loggins, scored yet another hit soundtrack song after Caddyshack's "I'm Alright." I can't decide which is bigger, "Footloose" or "Danger Zone" from Top Gun. Well, the former's dramatic opening thudding drums and heavy surf guitars, sports a rollicking upbeat rhythm that'll light the spark of any party, calling all in sundry to cut footloose, kick off those Sunday shoes.
Another hit single, with the funky "Lucky Star" style beat, was R&B singer Deniece Williams' "Let's Hear It For The Boy" which is a song of support for an underdog sort of man, a guy who sings off-key, who isn't too rich, or a good dresser, but counts him in for being a loving one-man show.
"Almost Paradise," such a wonderful classic 80's song. The slow love power ballad duet between Loverboy's Mike Reno and Heart's Ann Wilson, with its organ-like synths and pounding drums, is very well the first drop of rain that propelled Heart to its 80's success. I notice that Keith Olsen, who produced Passionworks, produced this song as well. And Loverboy would do a similar style power ballad, "Heaven In Your Eyes" for Top Gun.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect 80's soundtrack! July 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Wow, does this music bring back great memories! I loved the movie then and I love it now...what really makes it sparkle is the music that accompanies it. The soundtrack king of the 80's, Kenny Loggins is at his best on the title track, "Footloose," and almost tops it on "I'm Free." Throw in a little Deniece Williams, Bonnie Tyler, Sammy Hagar, and Shalamar, and you have a recipe for 80's greatness! The 2 ballads "Almost Paradise" by Mike Reno of Loverboy and Ann Wilson of Heart, and "Waiting For A Girl Like You" by Foreigner took me back to the gym during school dances when I was a total wallflower and watched the boys I had crushes on dancing with someone else <<sigh>>. The 4 bonus tracks don't hurt either! I had forgotten about the glam rock classic "Bang Your Head" by Quiet Riot and had a little chuckle when it started playing. Those were the days! If you are an 80's lover like me, then do yourself a favor and indulge yourself in this CD - trust me you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE 80's Musical Soundtrack January 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
First of all, this album became more well-known than than the movie itself. I can very well gurantee you will enjoy this album. Let's take a look at this, song by song.

1. Footloose

The title track of the album is one of the most memorable songs from the movie. This was the opening theme from the movie. This is a fast-tempo song that is great to dance and listen to.

2. Let's Hear It For The Boy

This up-tempo song is more in the synth-pop field of 80's music. This is another great dance tune to listen to. This song was featured in the part of the movie where the main character, Kevin Bacon, is showing his friend how to dance.

3. Almost Paradise

This is the other very well-known song from "Footloose". This is a great ballad hit. This was featured at the end of the movie at the school dance. However, the song featured on the soundtrack is different than what is featured on the movie. Personally, I like the soundtrack version better.

4. Holding Out For A Hero

This is the fastest song on the album which is performed by Bonnie Tyler. Yes, you probably know Bonnie Tyler from "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" or just as the lady with raspy vocals. This is a great song featured when Kevin is trying to win a tractor race. This song promotes the fast action in the movie very well.

5. Dancing In The Sheets

Back into synth-pop mode, "Dancing In The Sheets" is a great instrumental dance song. The constant synth-overtone made this song the hit it became. This song was featured when the preacher's daughter was playing this on the radio at a parking lot with friends.

6. I'm Free (Heaven Helps The Man)

The rock of Kenny Loggins.

THE FOOTLOOSE CD SONG: LEAVING FOR MAUI
Hi Doug, I was looking for this song too...it came out in 1980 and was a big hit in Canada. The main chorus is something like, "Girl you're leaving tomorrow for Maui/(something, something)/since you been away, it gets colder every day/girl I'm fallin' in love with you..." There's a... Read More
