probably Footloose. speaking of soundtracks, i miss the days when they'd get a lot of artists together to make songs just for a movie. today it mostly seems to be licensing existing songs, which, don't get me wrong, can lead to great soundtracks as well, i just like getting some new music with my movie.
That's cause most of today's music is sucky auto-tuned drivel that steals from real songs. I mean come on, is there anything out there now that compares to this?

I was listening to this soundtrack yesterday. I remember seeing this at the movies. The love theme and accompanying song, Almost Paradise, is probably my favorite. The lyrics have special meaning for me.
I love all of the '80s soundtracks and songs others have shared, too.

It's not the soundtrack, but "Danger Zone" by Kenny Loggins was just the perfect song for that opening sequence in Top Gun.

Okay, to soundtracks. I have to throw in LA Confidential. Sigmund had a thread "Awesome Movie Soundtracks," and I mentioned it there too. It's simply awesome. The score was spot-on to the era, and they interspersed it so closely to the movie sequences. Examples:

"Time to Hit the Road" as Dudley Smith is "encouraging" the wiseguys to take their business elsewhere. Within the brutality, it was somewhat humorous.

As Jack Vincennes is looking over Matt Reynolds, and the singer on the motel TV is crooning, "I have grown so much wiser now. Even foolish hearts can learn," it is just so pitch-perfect for the scene.
