Ever since I was a little kid, this has been my favorite CD. It is clearly the best soundtrack of all time. Los Lobos does a great job of redoing Ritchie Valens' classic rock songs. Marshall Crenshaw, who plays Buddy Holly, also does a great job with his song. If there is one CD to buy, this is it. Every song is great. Watch the movie also.

The song is called Sleepwalker by Johnny and Santos. Played while Esai Morales is running up the hill, and screaming Ritchie.
Hope you can get a copy. Great song.

They were just another band from East L.A., as one of their greatest-hits compilations would have it, but then they got hired as the natural choice to perform Richie Valens' music for the film "La Bamba." It was a role they were born to play, and it gave this excellent, prolific band that has mostly toiled in obscurity with a strong regional fan base and a great critical reputation, its one and only hit record. I loved their version of "La Bamba," and still turn up the radio every time an oldies station deigns to play it. Usually they cut off the wonderful coda to the song, the traditional Mexican folk instruments messing around with the same chord patterns. Los Lobos' version of "Come on Let's Go" is also magnificent. Another highlight is Marshall Crenshaw's version of "Crying, Waiting, Hoping" -- the Buddy Holly hit. Crenshaw portrayed Holly in the film, if I recall correctly. As an actor, he's no Gary Busey, but the arrangement and performance here are very enjoyable. The rest of it is pleasant and entertaining; a worthwhile purchase if you want to hear some excellent 80s performers pay their respects to some of the best rock music of the 1950s.

This is a solid soundtrack. Los Lobos do a good job of duplicating Ritchie Valens' old songs (although there was no accordion on the original versions). The other cover songs, by Howard Huntsberry, Marshall Crenshaw and Brian Setzer, are also well done. Bo Diddley does a great remake of his classic "Who Do You Love". The last two songs by Los Lobos are not Ritchie Valens songs, but they are okay. If you liked the movie, you will probably like the soundtrack, too.

The name of the song is "Sleepwalk" by Santo & Johnny. I don't know if you'll remember that you ever asked this question but there's your answer.

Tribute style album with Los Lobos (quite brilliantly) doing all of Valens' songs. Also the other songs, Diddly (orignal), howard huntsberry's version of Jackie Wilson's Lonely Teardrops is sooooooooo good, and I think I actually like Marshall Crenshaw's version of Crying, Waiting, Hoping by Buddy Holly better than the original, sorry to the purests. Oh and sorry, don't forget Brian Setzer with Summertime Blues, totally awesome. I looked everywhere for these versionsLa individually, in their full form, I know I couldn't find it, so if you do, kudos. So I broke down and bought the entire album and for $6 or $7, who caaaarrres. Ended up liking a lot of the songs I wasn't originally searching for. Good pick up.
