Format: Audio CD
Will someone, the director perhaps, ever revisit this soundtrack and properly flesh it out? There are about 50 songs in the movie, not to mention John Cale's and Laurie Anderson's contributions to the score. So much good music! One gem after another, I'm tellin ya! Wouldn't it be FUN if they created a comp with ALL the music on it?

I suppose I'll have to join the Download Generation and cobble it together myself.

It's worth noting that director Demme, on the commentary track for his EARLY feature "Crazy Mama", chuckles as he recalls how cheaply one could obtain song rights then, having obtained some well-known rock tunes for a pittance. 20 years on, there's not a chance in hell you could do a decent "SW" soundtrack for less than an actual fortune.

This cd is good. I enjoy listening to it very much, and the movie is one of my favorites. But, some of the best songs featured in the film aren't on the cd. A minus to Laurie Anderson and John Cale's sensibilities. If they had included at least one of the less pop-styled reggae flavored tunes, the cd would be that much better. If you're not looking for any hardcore reggae tunes or don't mind some of the better reggae/roots reggae/dub not included, then buy this cd -- you can't miss. Otherwise, your best bet is to steer clear.

Jonathan Demme got Laurie Anderson and John Cale to put together this superb soundtrack. The Fine Young Cannibals, David Byrne and Oingo Boingo are just three of the fab performances contributing to this varitable feast of great 80's Pop. As if the movie wasn't good enough (by far and away Melanie Griffith's best performance to date) the music is even better. Nobody like Demme knew how to put forth a fine and quirky motion picture and timely music to boot. Boy Howdy!!!! If you can find this gem and you love good pop, BUY IT AND PLAY IT LOUD!

Had a cassette with this on one side and true stories (talking heads) on the other. Could drive for hours.
P.S. Bought a used one for 7.99 on ebay.

This is my favorite movie ever. I got turned on to it by listening to Oingo Boingo's "Not my Slave" on their best-of album, which indicated the song was included on the "SW" soundtrack. I first watched the movie late one night after work and, as a fan of Talking Heads, I was surprised at how many connections there were in the movie to Talking Heads!

Unfortunately, as great as this soundtrack is, it's only a fraction of the music actually used in the movie (You can only fit so much on one disc). I can only give it a 3/5 because of that.
If you watch the movie and look very closely at the tiny, blurry lettering of the closing credits, you can note some additional songs that you can download as mp3s right here, including:

"Feel it" by Big Youth; "Medicine Show" by Big Audio Dynamite; "Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt" by Yellowman; "Cherokee Chief" by Jerry Harrison; "Total Control" by The Motels; "Slipping Into Something" by the Feelies; "Pili Pili" by Jaspar Van't Hof; "Ethnicolor" by Jean Michel Jarre, "Wozani Mahipi" by Mahotella Queens; "The future's so bright ..." by Timbuk 3.
