However, if you go to jamesnewtonhoward.com, look under the "discography" heading and go to the year 1990 and you'll see that it appeared as a bonus track on a bootleg double disc CD score of the movies "French Kiss" and "One Fine Day", two other films Howard wrote the music for. There's also a bootleg double disc CD score of the movies "The Trigger Effect" and "My Best Friend's Wedding" which has a bonus track simply titled "Pretty Woman".
I was able to find the song "He Sleeps/Love Theme" on one of the music download services but it's not exactly as it appears in the movie. On the version I have, a flute plays the repeated melody line instead of a piano and the tune takes on a much more jazzy feel. Personally, I prefer the melancholy piano version in the movie--perhaps it's the song "Pretty Woman" that appears on the bootleg "Trigger Effect/Best Friend's Wedding" cd? I don't know, but it's worth looking for sometimes on eBay or through a web site dedicated to finding hard to find CD movie soundtracks/scores.
Hope this helps. Glad to know I'm not the only out there who was so captivated by the song "He Sleeps" the first time I heard it. Good stuff.
Okay, so what's on this fabulous compilation?? Nat's talented daughter, Natalie, gives us a dose of real girl power in "Wild Woman Do"; Go West drum up the incredibly addictive "King of Wishful Thinking"; Jane Wiedlin and especially the amazing Lauren Wood are the consummate representatives of the "go-it-alone woman soloist" club; if you like hip, the Chilli Peppers will never let you down; Roxette's arguably highest point is demonstrated on this album in the huge global hit "It Must have Been Love"; Palmer and Otcasek (no, never heard of him either) give us the brashness and rawness of Hollywood Boulevard with "Life in Detail" and "Real Wild Child"; PeterCetera illustrates his prowess in "No Explanation" (if you liked this, check out "The Glory of Love from Karate kid II, which Cetera also co-wrote); and the legendary Roy Orbison wraps it all up with a 70s classic for the titles track.
These are all stunners, but my personal favourites are "King of Wishful Thinking", "No Explanation", "Fallen" and "Real Wild Child". Don't hesitate - get this and get happy!
Dammi tu forza, o cielo= Dame tu fuerza o cielo=Heaven give me your strength!!!
But thank god you guys found the name of the song playing at the opera, it is beautiful.
I do miss some of the operatic pieces which were in the flick. As Richard Gere says , " opera, either people love it or hate it--if they love it, they will always love it, if they hate it, they will learn to appreciate it, but it will never be apart of their soul."
A wonderfully done soundtrack. Thanks--CDS
"Show me your soul" by Red Hot Chili Peppers and "Fame" by David Bowie are reminders of Hollywood Boulevard "hotty" clubs, and most of the songs are very end-80's/early-90's.
No need to tell you about the famous "Wild women do" by Nathalie Cole or the great "Pretty Woman" by Roy Orbison.
Like is the movie, this is a fairytale sondtrack, with huge artists and terrific songs.

I clicked on your link just to reply with a "So!?" but your comment is very well thought out. I have a friend overseas who is supposed to be sending me the "He Sleeps" song from that particular CD. Reply to this note Teresa Guibert and I will send you a copy.
