The only flaw with this album was the failure to include "Monster of Love", "Shelly's Boyfriend" and "Girls Like Me." Thankfully, this egregious error has been remedied by Volume 2 which includes these and other similar cuts and is only slightly less trippindicular.
If you want to remember what a blast music used to be before the Shania Twains, Limp Bizkits, and Kid Rocks rendered radio unlistenable, this is a great starting point.
But if you google "Bonnie Hayes," she has her own website where she lets you legally download both of those songs for free. I just thought you might like to know that!
Of course, you know I MELT WITH YOU is one of the greatest rock singles of all time but there are two somewhat forgotten classics, A MILLION MILES AWAY (I think the Plimsouls even make an appearance in the movie) and the short-lived band, the Flirts with JUKEBOX (DON'T PUT ANOTHER DIME). Just flat-out brilliant power pop classics. Just those three are worth the price of the CD.
You also get pretty much all the songs you need from Josie Cotten (also in the movie), plus great: Men At Work, the Furs and Sparks.
Even the "lesser" songs are great period pieces - they may not hold up as well but this is one of the great soundtracks of the 1980s.
A great CD to start your collection!

I am an old man. This music is from my lost 80s glory days of high school. It's nice to relive them while listening to to it. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Sean
This is a fantastic 80s mix - all the really good songs from the film, but it stands alone as a great 80s mix!Published 8 months ago by Stefani Pastoor
