Editorial Reviews

The aim was to do for country what Saturday Night Fever did for disco. The result was that bars from Kona to Kalamazoo suddenly had mechanical bulls, and slickers walking around in cowboy hats. You might also pinpoint this as the moment in time when "country" music suddenly went cosmopolitan, paving the way for Garth Brooks. Johnny Lee's "Lookin' for Love" was one of the decade's biggest singles, and this album briefly made a star of Mickey Gilley (whose Texas club provided a home for that alpha bull). Fans of Bob Seger, Jimmy Buffet, the Eagles, Dan Fogelberg, and Bonnie Raitt may want this collection for the tunes they lack elsewhere. And it sure recalls an era. But please don't call it "country." --Bill Holdship

5.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack that changed country music forever July 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Whether you call this country music or not (some tracks are, some aren't), it's impact is undeniable. Pop country became fashionable. Traditional country did briefly fight back via the Judds, Ricky Skaggs, George Strait, Randy Travis and others, but then came Garth Brooks - and you can see the roots of his music in this soundtrack.
Of the first four tracks, three are uptempo rockers and the fourth is a rock ballad. After that, the songs have a definite country flavor. The only two that I would call real country are (surprisingly) the two Bonnie Raitt tracks. I love Bonnie's music, but I've never heard anything like these tracks on her own albums - and neither of them has yet appeared on a Bonnie compilation. Bonnie fans who like country music should buy this just for Darlin' and Don't it make you wanna dance.
Nearly all the songs were recorded especially for the soundtrack. Two obvious exceptions are Lyin' eyes and Devil went down to Georgia, but they are great songs and fit here well. Could I have this dance? is one of my favorite Anne Murray songs. It was not released on any of her original albums, but has appeared on some of her compilations. Love the world away is one of Kenny Rogers' best songs. I could go on .... I've never seen the movie, but this is a great soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Have to Have Seen The Movie To Enjoy This CD October 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is the perfect collection of songs for any Country Music lover. It's full of songs that make you want to sing along, dance, or just get lost in the lyrics. This is one of the better soundtracks b/c it does not have sound bites from the movie in between the songs. You can listen to one track after the other without interruption.

All of the songs are great, but my favorites are Anne Murrays, "Could I have This Dance," Mickey Gilley's "Here Comes the Hurt Again," Johnny Lee's "Looking For Love," and "Cherokee Fiddle."

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but incomplete and inconsistent January 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This has long been a favorite movie of my wife and I.The problem I have with the soundtrack is the apparent omission of the film's title song by Charlie Daniels "Texas". That song immediately set the tone for this film, you were in a totally different environment and really felt like you were in that truck with Travolta. It's also hard to recall exactly where in the movie some of these songs appeared, and if they did they were buried so far in the sound mix of the film you never heard (or barely heard)them.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dawning of a New Era in Country Music June 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Okay, so you're thinking that any movie that has John Travolta playing a country boy must not have that great of a soundtrack, right? Nope. The majority of the songs on this album are excellent. "Hello Texas" opens things up and sets the table for what's to come. The artists on this project range from Charlie Daniels' barroom style to Bonnie Raitt's bluesy country to Mickey Gilley's slick, early 80's country. This album is the perfect introduction to anyone who wants to know which road country music takes during the 80's. It also features the memorable "Lookin' For Love in All The Wrong Places," "Cherokee Fiddle," "Could I Have This Dance," and many others, including the Eagles' "Lyin' Eyes." To sum things up, this album shows you that country in the 80's is going to be slicker, more mainstream, and harder to categorize with more rock and pop influence added to the fray. It's the dawning of "citified" country, but it's the best album of it's class. From there, the talent in mainstream country drops off until the late 80's. And in case you're wondering, the movie isn't half bad either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow down, Editor! May 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Excuse me, editor (BILL HOLDSHIP) you're review is not completely accurate! I will admit that the movie (which i happen to love) really did create a fad in pop culture in it's day, and most of the songs are not what you would call country, but there are some exceptions. You cannot listen to this soundtrack and say it is not country, there are some EXTREMELY country songs here. For example, "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" I know some would call this southern rock, but this song is a COUNTRY classic! And the other great song they contributed "Falling In Love For The Night", CLEARLY a country tune! "Cherokee Fiddle" another country song that is very well done. And Bonnie Raitt, who I know as well as the next person is not a true country girl, she's much better known for her rock music, but "Darlin" which is a song in which she sings amazingly,is a country song, as well as "Dont It Make You Wanna Dance", when she sings country, you know it's country! There are other songs that are not really worth listening to, I agree that some definaltey arent country, but come on, when you tell me to please not call Charlie Daniels country, i take that as a personal insult!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Very Good February 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a country music fan in the least. But I saw this movie at least 3 times and it was superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the music. There are several good artists on this soundtrack like Dan Fogelbert, Bob Seger, Anne Murray, The Eagles, Johnny Lee. Charlie Daniels, Kenny Rogers and a few others. Every song on this ST is excellent. Even if you're not a country music fan like myself, this is one good CD to have in your collection of movie soundtracks.

To be honest; I preferred the songs I heard while watching the movie, not the cleaned and remastered versions. If something isn't broken; why fix it?

3.0 out of 5 stars If you liked the will like the CD.
Good songs with a variety of singer-song writers. Leans toward country sound. Mainly about a 50-50 mix of fast and slow songs.
