FYI, I would definitely suggest 'Wave Length' and 'Miracle Mile' too!
At 32 my tastes are more discriminating, but I pretty much bought every TD album or CD that came out without listening to it, hoping to hear that hard charged fire from Risky Business.
This is truly one of their best and a must have for any TD fan.
I was 10yrs old when the movie was released and around 12 when vhs allowed me to view it. From the opening dream sequence to the end this was one of those rare movies that carried a strong mood and feeling throughout. Because of this even in my infancy of sexuality and intellect the film worked then and still does into my adulthood. This soundtrack allows those moods to follow me in the car or whenever i feel like putting the cd on.
All the Tangerine Dream tracks in this album are worthwhile. Something my opinion does not allow for their independent albums. Jeff's "the pump" and Phil Collins' solo carrer smash hit "in the air tonight" almost seem contrived to fit in with the somewhat ambient nature of the TD tracks. While im glad they are included "DMSR" and the rest of the other songs break up the "turn the lights off, kick back, and just breathe" mood. If you require an artificially enhanced bass line to pump up a lack of intrinsic passion or own a "melody who?" T-shirt this soundtrack may be dissapointing overall. There are some tracks missing from the movie like the Talking Heads song and the piece when Joel is talking to his parents in the living room before they leave town.
P.S. I am now positive that I dislike Bob Seger.
I enjoyed this movie much more in its theatrical release, with "Every Breath You Take" behind the love on a real train scene. I remembered this distinctly, but thought I must be mistaken after watching it on Netflix today. Thanks to B. Sims for affirming my recollection. The studio loses a star from my review for truncating the soundtrack. I'm sure they're worried. The movie must've been made before "Every Breath You Take" became so immensely popular (and expensive in royalties).
Rebecca De Mornay, however, is as hot as I remember from the first viewing. She takes my breath away as a perfectly beautiful but treacherous and amoral little slut. Tom Cruise' first megawatt of star power still draws attention. The two are not unlike an 80's version of Dustin Hoffman and Katherine Ross in "The Graduate".
Compare "Risky Business"'s sex without attachment and love of money with "The Graduate"'s theme of love over gold to limn the corrosive effect of Reaganism on 60's idealism.
And in that same spirit the studio wrecked my favorite scene by messing with the soundtrack to save a buck!
