18 months ago my life was a bottomless pit of despair. Divorced, kids wouldn't talk to me, my dog ran away, and I was fired from my job due to lack of hygiene. Then I found this album in a trash can. My life hasn't been the same since. I'm not familiar with the movie this soundtrack is based off of or how accepted this music is in mainstream america, but I have never heard anything so inspirational. After a few plays on my walkman I found myself jogging around the neighborhood with 5 lbs weights in my hands. Then I started ironing my clothes. Then I started wearing cufflinks with everything. Now I'm the Assistant Manager at Wendy's in Denville NJ and my life couldn't be more complete. I have climbed a mountain, to the tune of this martial arts soundtrack. I play this every morning when I wake up, jazzercise in place for 35 minutes, then leave my condo looking for the next challenge to overcome.

11 years after hearing the soundtrack to the Karate Kid on LP I had to have it. Unfortunatly it was not on cd at the tine, For the most part most the soundtrack is here on the cd with a few noteable exceptions the following songs WERE NOT included
1.Broken Edge Please answer me unavailable elsewhere only featured in the film
2.Bananarama Cruel summer it is rumored that the first batch of cds featured this song on the soundtrack but is easy to find
3.Matches The Ride the song is briefly played during the scene Johnny and co arrive at the beach on their dirt bikes in the movie and sadly is only heard for a few seconds and again this is not available anywhere
Lastly theres the pan flute music performed by Gheorghe Zamfir I don't think this was EVER released anywhere although I could be wrong. This would be a great addition to anyone's 80's cd collection (big fan of the 80's myself) What needs to be done is a re-release remastered edition including the missing tracks and sleeve notes.

The first soundtrack to the Karate Kid movies is the best of the four... even though it is missing the ever popular Bananarama hit, "Cruel Summer" and "The Ride" (played when the Kobra Kai rode onto the beach on their motorbikes) and does not include ANY of Bill Conti's fantastic score. But a CD that has "Moment of Truth" and "You're The Best" on there is alright in my book. What they really oughta do is release "The Karate Kid Anthology" with the most popular songs from all 4 movies, the highlighs from the scores, and the songs that were missing from the original soundtracks. Glenn Mederios has a song called "High Wire" in the 3rd movie played in the dance club and it is not on the soundtrack and is not on any of his solo albums. The only way to get it is on the b-side of the out-of-print cassette single of "Listen To Your Heart" by Little River Band (the theme from Karate Kid III). This too should be included on that anthology. It would be fitting too, since Part II and III are coming out on DVD on July 10.

Unfortunately the soundtrack is missing the beautiful pan flute music as well as a couple of songs such as Cruel Summer. But despite this, it's still a great sountrack which should please any fan of The Karate Kid and 80's music.

I KNOW The Karate Kid and following sequels BY ROTE (yes, I admit, I'm a geek) with the exception of The Next Karate Kid. While they HAD to include the song from the tournament, they just had to (I'll also admit that I play this song when I'm doing my own martial training-long live Larusso!!)! But they FORGOT or NEGLECTED to include "Cruel Summer" by Bananarama. That's played when Daniel's riding his bike to school with his shades on to hide his first doses of whoop-@ss.
I DEMAND that The music label RE-RELEASE this soundtrack WITH "Cruel Summer" by Bananarama on it, NOT omitting a single track. For [the price]I think that's more than reasonable! Feel free to e-mail me with your feelings and/or input.

I found this soundtrack excellent as the film itself the music reminded me of the first time I saw "The Karate Kid".And at the age of 25 I still love the movie and its soundtrack but there is a downside the Bananarama song "Cruel Summer" wasn't featured in the OST, and also the wonderfull pan flute music played by Bill Conti should have really been included, but overall I recomend this OST, And I really do hope that the soundtrack to The Karate kid II does come out on CD very soon........

There was a time in the 80's when alot of the best movies

were supported by really strong soundtracks and The Karate

Kid is one of them.... Granted, the songs for the most part

are on the softer side... But it's still a good soundtrack

with the awesome cut "You're the Best" as the feature track.

There is also Surviors "Moment of Truth" that is yet another

great song by a band that had become known for making good

sountrack songs. "Young Hearts" is also a good pop cult and

the rest of the tracks support this album fairly well.

I live in Australia, and here it is quite easy to find a copy of this cd. Actually, it can be found permanantly reduced in most record stores since it doesn't seem all that popular. What I can't find in stores are copies of the soundtracks for the other two movies. I thought "The Karate Kid" was a fantastic film, especially since I saw it when I was a kid and I was really into all the karate stuff, but today it's really the music that tops it off for me. It was disappointing how "Cruel Summer" wasn't present, and another song that I can't remember ("The Ride"?). It also seems weird that the pan flute music wasn't in there, since it kind of ties in with the obvious Japanese theme. I strongly recommend it for anyone with a liking for popular 80's music and fond memories of the film. Y'know, it seems that most of the soundtracks for films starring Elisabeth Shue are pretty good - check out "Leaving Las Vegas", with music by sting. It's a great recording.
