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

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.

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."

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.

I was in the Air Force serving in Germany when the movie came out. I did see the movie and I enjoyed it. Also while I was shopping for a stereo I would hear the music from the soundtrack being played. In time I would buy the stereo and I would buy the movie soundtrack in vinyl. The soundtrack is a collection of various country and pop songs from various artists. In time I would either lose or give away my Urban Cowboy record album and I decided it was time to replace it. It was really good to listens to these songs once again. I enjoyed them back then and I enjoyed hearing them now. I'm happy with the purchase and I'm happy with Amazon's good service. Again good job.

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.

The film did much to popularize country music to a more "sophisticated", urban crowd--hence the appropriateness of the title to the story. A young John Travolta's troubles over traditional male/female roles with his soul mate Debra Winger lead to an affair with a rich city girl (Madolyn Smith) looking to go slumming with a "real cowboy" and drives Debra Winger into the arms of a truly great bad guy, arch rival to Travolta's character (a magnetic and menacing Scott Glenn). "Hard hat days and honky-tonk nights" are perfectly captured by an excellent assembly of songs and performers, from Bonnie Raitt, The Charlie Daniel's Band, Bob Seger, Mickey Gilley and even the always romantic Boz Scaggs, to the iconic and never-forgettable theme song from Johnny Lee, "Lookin' for Love in All the Wrong Places."

Have seen the movie 50 times a great movie about cowboys who love to ride a mechanical bull,
and dance stetson at Gilleys
Its worth watching. John Travolta, Debra Winger are a great couple.
I sing along with all the songs, great movie.
