In 1959, I was a tad younger than the characters in the movie, but I lived in a small town and roamed freely to places forbidden and dangerous as they did. My older sister was the 45RPM single collector. but the Doo Wop music of the era remains stuck in memory. I wouldn't mind visiting the town of the 1950's as an adult, but until/unless that becomes possible, this soundtrack takes me down the hill to our little town.
"Stand By Me" is a remarkably short soundtrack--it's just under 30 minutes. This is mainly due to several songs being omitted that played during the movie, like "Rockin' Robin" (at the beginning of the movie, in the tree house), "Book of Love" (Ace and his friends hanging out, scarring each other with razors), and "Come Softly to Me" (the background campfire song), just to name a few. Why these three songs weren't included is beyond me; they're really good. Even so, this is still a good soundtrack and worth a listen if you're a fan of the movie and/or love pop/rock music from the 1950s.
