A great soundtrack from a great movie!
Five For Fighting
Most of the CD is music, and not actual songs, which some people like and some dislike.

I loved STARMAN when I first watched the movie on HBO back in the 80's.

Everytime, i hear that end song it makes me cry. the movie was excellant and so is the music. one of john carpenter's best movies and jack nitzche's best scores. i remember seeing this in theatres as a kid and it was graet and it still is. the soundtarck is short but if you love the music and movie its worth it!

1984 really wasnt a bad year was it..well at least movie wise. There was a slew of good movies; The Never Ending Story, The Karate Kid, Ghostbusters, Beverly Hills Cop, Gremlins, Amadeus, The Terminator...and last but not least STARMAN. I loved STARMAN when I first watched the movie on HBO back in the 80's. I loved the concept of Starman; the glowing spheres, the spaceship, the... loss and resurrection of love, the... undying message of hope, and (as always) the everlasting theme of peace. Basically, what I just typed can be summed up in the brilliant score by Jack Nitzsche. "Starman Main Theme" IS one of the most uplifting themes ever recorded. The rest of the score fits this movie like a glove. All the movie's themes are represented, all the emotion is CAPTURED.
Even if you havent seen S T A R M A N, give this soundtrack a try; its a great listening experience.

This a very special CD which features a very beatiful melody, such as profund as enigmatic. Actually it was because of it that I bought the album. Starman Leaves/End titles could be rated as STARMAN theme, but I'd rather like you to get you own opinion if you have the oportunity to get it. The Whole music is in such a similar style as Vangelis and Alan Parson's Project and others New Age Composers, if I'm allowed to say it so.
Nevertheless, it has a little peculiarity: it features a 30-minute play, aproximately. Worth not buying if you expect to listen to a Brandenburg Concertos like play.
Mr. Bridges and Mrs. Allen participation in this album makes it as special as Mr. Nitzche talent to make it real. But of course, Mr. Bridges should never take seriously a singer career.
Some tracks I recommend: No. 2 Here come the Helicopters; No. 6 Pickup Truck; No. 8 All I have to do is Dream (very good music arragement, by the way); and of course No. 14 Starman Leaves/End Titles, a melody I consider as an Hymn.

Expected more of the main theme throughout the selections - This soundtrack brings back the memories of watching the movie in real time. I like the fact that it is all music and no voices.

This soundtrack does not sound like many others. There's something about the mood of this soundtrack, and the way it sounds, that appeals to me. It's probably not for a great many ears, but it definitely appeals to mine.

When I first saw this movie, I knew....KNEW I had to own the music, it's both haunting and very captivating to the senses.
At the time of it's release, my media of choice was cassette and the only store that had it was 25 five miles away from where I was living at the time, in the Livingston Mall, so I asked them to hold it for me, got in my car and went out there and picked it up...IN A SNOW STORM no less, NOW THAT'S DEDICATION...That's how bad I wanted this soundtrack, I was a nut for music back then and this was the perfect compliment to my collection.
A few weeks later, Challenger blew up and the music from this soundtrack seem to be the right mood piece for the time so I played it and it was amazing how the music seemed to make the deaths of those seven Astronauts a lot more easier and comforting.
If any of you haven't heard this soundtrack yet, I urge you to find a copy.

I had been looking for the original motion picture soundtrack CD in brand new condition for several years, and I am ecstatic to finally have it. It was still in the original packaging.

I had downloaded some of this soundtrack from I-Tunes, but there is nothing like the original CD for sound quality, tone, and balance that match the music as heard in the actual motion picture.

The music from "Starman" never gets old; it is mellow, entrancing, and relaxing. A great soundtrack from a great movie!
