Product Description

This soundtrack provided the perfect new-wave accompaniment to a romantic comedy set in 1985. Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic The Police; How Soon Is Now? The Smiths; Love My Way Psychedelic Furs; Hold Me Now Thompson Twins; China Girl David Bowie; Blue Monday New Order, and more.

Sounding like a flashback of the first few years of MTV, the soundtrack of The Wedding Singer starts as an intended goof and ends up quite listenable, thanks. While a couple of these songs (Musical Youth's "Pass the Dutchie" in particular) had already fallen off the cultural radar by 1985, when the movie's action takes place, what's most impressive is the staying power most of them hold. If anything, the Psychedelic Furs' "Love My Way" sounds even better than it did then, and of course "How Soon Is Now," and "Blue Monday" are classics that have transcended their era: Just ask Matt Pinfield. Or Adam Sandler. Or Steven Morrissey. --Rickey Wright

Format: Audio CD
The Wedding Singer, besides being a wonderful movie, assembled a soundtrack crammed full of the best, most wide-ranging pop songs from the 1980s. This CD as well as the second soundtrack volume are must-haves for 80s aficionados. Among the most commonly known classics on this CD are "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic" from The Police, "Hold Me Now" by The Thompson Twins, "White Wedding" by Billie Idol, and "China Girl" from the one and only David Bowie. Even the Culture Club track "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" is enjoyable amidst the other songs on the album. "Pass the Dutchie" is a somewhat forgotten, uniquely-80s hit. I was most pleased to see several tracks from more alternative bands of the 80s, such as "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Presidents of the United States of America, "Love My Way" by the Psychedelic Furs, "Blue Monday" by New Order (perhaps the ultimate dance song of the decade), and--one of my favorite songs of all time--"How Soon Is Now?" by The Smiths. Such variety means that listeners may not like every single song on the CD, but anyone who grew up in the 80s will discover long-forgotten memories associated with every single one of these songs, and the younger generation will get a good overview of the wide-ranging popular music of my generation. Adam Sandler's "Somebody Kill Me" song is, of course, not an 80s tune, but it really had to be included on the movie soundtrack. Rap fans will be disappointed, as the only rap song found here is "Rapper's Delight" featuring the elderly Ellen Dow from the movie along with Sugarhill Gang, but all in all this CD and its companion volume from The Wedding Singer soundtrack comprise the most representative collection of the unforgettable music of the late, great 1980s.

The Wedding Singer is an extremely funny movie and part of its fun is that it takes place in 1985. The music culled from that era for this soundtrack shows off a nice range of music. Instead of going for the same old tired songs, this album has some nice surprises like The Smiths "How Soon Is Now?" and "Everyday I Write The Book" by Elvis Costello. "Pass The Dutchie" is a fun song (though it does tire a bit after repeat listens) and "White Wedding" by Billy Idol is a perfect fit for the film. The Presidents of the USA take on The Buggles' "Video Killed The Radio Star" is serviceable and "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?" by the Culture Club was used in the film, but it would have been funny to contain a version by Alexis Arquette from the film like they did with Ellen Dow on "Rapper's Delight". "Somebody Kill Me" is classic Adam Sandler and is very funny. The soundtrack does an excellent job of representing the feel of the film and brings back good memories for those who grew up in the 80's.

Both CD's are great.....BUT......where is the song "99 luft/red balloons?" by Nina. I like that one and to me it stood out (The scene where Drew Barrymore is groovin' to it on her walkman) where as alot of other songs featured on the CDs are buried in the background and not prominent.....Oh well, CD's are great all the same.

The soundtrack to the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore 80s retro romantic comedy "The Wedding Singer," proved to be a surprise smash hit when it was released in early 1998. So popular was the soundtrack, in fact, a second volume was released later that year.

Set in 1985, anyone vaguely familiar with 80s pop-culture knows that the film is at times off by a couple of years when it goofs on 80s styles, music and fashion. Some of the targets that were featured in this film, (i.e., Flock of Seagulls hair-style, Boy George, etc) were yesterday's news by 1985. That really doesn't matter though, as "The Wedding Singer" is still an awesome movie that's hysterical and a lot of fun.

Like the film, the soundtrack is off by a couple of years as well. Most of the hits on this CD were popular in the early 80s, a few years before the "The Wedding Singer" is set. But that doesn't really matter either, as "The Wedding Singer" soundtracks are two of the best 80s compilations ever assembled.

Focusing mostly on new wave and pop standards, "The Wedding Singer" soundtracks offer a grab-bag of hits, from the decade's most essential artists, one-hit-wonders, and the novelty acts in between.

Volume one starts out with a cover of the Buggles "Video Killed the Radio Star" performed by the 90s alt-pop band The Presidents of the United States of America. While it may seem odd to start off an 80s soundtrack with a 90s artist, covering a song from the 70s, it actually works just fine. It makes the soundtrack appear fresh and spices up the album a little, setting "The Wedding Singer" soundtrack apart from a million other 80s comps. The Culture Club's reggae flavored "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" is one of those songs that I'm embarrassed to admit I like...but I do.

This is probably one of the best compilation of 80s songs available. I like enough of the songs to keep "The Wedding Singer" CD on hand. Plus, the Adam Sandler song (track #13, "Somebody Kill Me") is hilarious. I'm sure most people could have done without the cuss words in it. But, well, Adam Sandler gets his point across. I guess that's the main thing (it's about angst over his girlfriend).
The last track, "Rapper's Delight," is not something I've played more than once. I guess they had to include it because it was in the movie, but I think it was horrible (at least it's at the end of the CD). Nevertheless, those who like 80s music will likely enjoy "The Wedding Singer" soundtrack.
