When I lent out my tape to a friend and never saw it again, I was very angry. Now I can't find the CD or tape or anything and I am heartbroken. This soundtrack must be re-issued. I cannot live without the angst-ridden fury of Circle Jerk's Love Kills, or Steve Jones, or the Pogues. UHHHHHHHHHH! Bring it back. Re-unite my Repo Man Soundtrack with its brilliant companion.

I've been a Gary Oldman fan for quite some time now. I have searched EVERYWHERE in vain for the soundtrack to Sid & Nancy. Imagine my delight when I thought I'd found the CD, only to be informed that it's no longer available. What torture! Please re-issue the CD!

Saw the film back in college. Came to find the music I loved. Left disappointed. Another vote for reissue!

I have been searching Australia for the past 10 years trying to replace my copy of this soundtrack. I thought Amazon would surely have the soundtrack to the greatest film ever made...but sadly,no. How can I survive the rest of my life without hearing it again? REISSUE IT! PLEASE!

This is an excellent post-Punk blend with bite and with soul. It illustrates, none too gently, the futility and sadness of two wasted lives. All the artists on the album give an extremely good accounting of themselves. There's not a weak track to be found. My cassette tape is long gone, but I'm still haunted by the music. I'd love to hear it again.

If you're a fan of Alex Cox's movie, you must own this soundtrack. One can almost rewatch the movie in one's head every time one listens to the soundtrack. It opens with Joe Strummer's "Love Kills" which echoes a prescient line uttered by Nancy in the film. The Pogues' "Haunted" is a truly beautiful love song that perfectly mirrors Cox's reimagining of Sid and Nancy as a punk Romeo and Juliet. The Pogues' "Junk" underscores how the burgeoning relationship is both tied to and doomed by heroin addiction. Gary Oldman's "I Wanna Be Your Dog" forces one to remember Sid's spiral from "fabulous disaster" to human trainwreck. Oldman doing Vicious doing Sinatra "My Way" doesn't make Ole Blue Eyes seem particularly non-conformist by comparison. Pray For Rain has a large presence, with four tracks, each of which is closely associated with a specific scene: "Off the Boat" immediately evokes images of Sid and Nancy on the Thames, walking unscathed through the violence and chaos surrounding them; "Chinese Choppers" recalls the aerial shots of the Sex Pistols' tour buses rolling across the American plains; "Burning Room" eerily produces metaphoric images of Nancy gazing into the flames that are about to consume them; "Taxi to Heaven" never fails to remind one of the final scene in which Cox attempts to give back to Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen something infamy took from them: serenity.

I only wish I could purchase this CD. Which of these songs is the scene where Sid & Nancy are kissing at the garbage dumpster? That's why I want the soundtrack CD!

Either priorities need serious adjusting, or this is just another trickster marketing ploy...WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR? Reissue NOW! I NEED this soundtrack!
