Words cannot express the brilliance of this soundtrack. The songs may sound like cheesy, dorky songs to you, but to me they are like the voice of God himself. Especially "One Foot in Front of the Other." My only complaint about the soundtrack, is that the picture on the front did not include either Booger or the random dork with the afro who got beat in armwrestling. Also the rap song by Lamar at the charity contest should have been included. Come to think of it, this soundtrack really sucks.

If you are a junky of new wave movie soundtracks of the 80s (Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Last American Virgin, etc) you should definitely give this one a go, because it is loaded with synth pop and guitar wave gems. I personally bought it for the track by Bone Symphony because it is produced by Giorgio Moroder apprentice Richie Zito, but I was surprised to find numerous fun 80s tracks that will definitely make their way into my 80s folder on my ipod.

1. Manhattan--synth pop with female vocal. Think vocals in the style of The Flirts, singing a bouncy ditty that sounds just like the song Iko Iko.

2. Don't Talk--guitar driven anthematic stomper with hot synth stabs. Song style remind me of Rick Springfield tracks--the male vocals and melody remind me of "We Built This City" by Starship.

3. One Foot In Front of the Other--LOVE it. Synth dance perfection, sounds like something you'd hear on Giorgio Moroder soundtracks like Scarface, but with new wave male vocals similar to that of the band Our Daughters Wedding (Lawnchairs).

4. Breakdown--80s funk/R&B sound, like New Edition.

5. Revenge of the Nerds--I can't believe this is the same group who does the song right before it. This is quirky Devo-esque/The Flirts/Total Coeli synthdance. Tons of fun.

6. They're so incredible--downtempo electronic dance track. Vocals have a sort of John Lydon edge to them, but more melodic.

7. Are You Ready--Remember "What Do All The People Know" by The Monroes? This is in that style, but slightly more rock oriented.

8. Are You Ready For The Sex Girls--TOTAL new wave novelty camp. Sort of has the feel of something by The Cars.

9. Right Time For Love--ah...the love song. A male/female duet. Nice stuff, but should have been the last track on the disc so as not to interrupt the flow.

10. All Night Party--moody synth rock, reminds me of Split Enz.

Seems like just yesterday that Poindexter was on the violin, and Louis and Gilbert would be joinin' in......."
Today's nerd movies rely on cheap sex jokes, heavy partying, gorgeous blondes, and boisterous jocks to make a statement....uh, wait.....actually, so does this movie, but it's still pretty cool!! With a surprisingly touching, very universal message and scene at the end (nerds deserve a chance in mainstream society), Revenge of the Nerds Part I rocks. All other movies like this afterward were mere imitators (especially the sequels to this monster). In 1984, however, the makers of this movie just wanted to have some fun, and that's reflected in the killer soundtrack, a totally new-wave, snyth-driven gem that pretty much anyone can enjoy - even the mean-spirited and stupid Ogars of the world. Sure, they could have included the Queen song and a few others, but those overplayed songs would simply take away from the unique 80's vibe that this soundtrack possesses. If you're a child of the 80's, you'll dig this sound.
NERDS UNITE!!

This CD was fun to listen to since I love the movie so much. But, the songs were really not that great.

I simply bought this for the track "One Foot In Front Of The Other". after being reminded of it during a Family Guy episode, I couldn't get the song out of my head.

The other tunes are good, but just not as memorable - to me. So, check out the audio samples and listen for yourself. :)
