I own the cassette and have enjoyed it ever since the movie's original debut.

I see used copies pop up on occasion on eBay and the fierce shark-style feeding frenzy that follows as people wage fierce bidding wars trying to get their hands on it. It's been heavily in demand for reissure for years. It's fun, quirky, catchy and a great picker-upper.

So why is this fun little package still out of print?

Oh well, it's unfortunately not the first time that a great soundtrack has been neglected by labels...

But anyway, on to the music itself. A great and fun little mix of eighties sounds at the time, from the immortal Oingo Boingo title track to an arresting cover by Cheyne of Prince's "Private Joy" (which originally appeared on his notorious "Controversy" album and remains one of the most catchy little ditties he ever wrote during that period). It also has a delightfully catchy and hilarious little piece called "Why Don't Pretty Girls (Look At Me)", the hypnotic "Turn It On" by Kim Wilde, and... and... and... oh man, you've just got to hear it.

I could go on and on about how cool this album is, but instead I'll just list one more example:

There's a brief scene that lasts only a few seconds in the movie (just before the bikers crash into the house) where you see the party going on in that home, the whole place wall to wall with partying youth, all bouncing up and down wildly in perfect unison while a delightfully loud, wild, speaker-splitting song keeps shrieking over and over again, "EIGHTIES!!! I'M LIVING IN THE EIGHTIES!!!" When I recently saw that scene again, I told an old friend (who agreed with me) as I pointed to the screen, "Now THERE'S the essence of what the entire era was like captured perfectly within just a few feet of film!

If you're a fan of the movie Weird Science and you enjoy the quintessential '80s music that formed its soundtrack, then this album is for you. The songs on the record are a pleasant reminder of the scenes they were featured in, usually as background music, and they also stand well on their own as a compilation of nice tunes. If that's what you like, go ahead and buy this record. It's just too bad that it is out of production, as this seems to be one of the only ways to buy it.

I do have one small complaint about the description on the product page: In the song listing, it says that there is one at the end of the album called "Weird Romance," which, as it turns out, is not on the album. I hope someone can correct this.

This is one of the most entertaining, distinctive soundtracks from the eighties. Highlights for me was Oingo Boingo's title track, "Circle" by Max Carl, "Deep In the Jungle" by Wall of Voodoo, "(Why Don't Pretty Girls) Look At Me" by the Wild Men of the Wonga, "Method to My Madness" by Lords of the New Church and "Eighties" by Killing Joke.

Certainly a better ratio of good to bad songs than other John Hughes films, catchy and danceable. If you find it on tape, give it a listen. And if you are one of the powers that be at MCA, re-release this on CD! It will sell at least as good as "Repo Man".

It is time that the soundtracks of the 80's should be released on a CD. I am sure the record company will find customers who will buy it.

This was my soundtrack for the time. Such great music all on one album, and the movie wasn't bad either! This was always in my walkman and since I rode a bike everywhere, this was just always on. Just google some of the artists and give it a listen, just a truly uplifting and fun sound.

Please please please, release this on CD.
