Starring Ben and Casey Affleck, Courtney Love, Martha Plimpton, and Christina Ricci, among others, 200 Cigarettes is a romantic comedy set on New Year's Eve 1981 in New York City's East Village. Supporting the film is a representative collection of late-'70s and early-'80s new-wave pop-rockers. The Ramones nail down the ferocious end of the spectrum ("I Don't Care"), but the emphasis is on straight pop with Nick Lowe ("Cruel to Be Kind"), the Cars ("Just What I Needed"), Joe Jackson ("It's Different for Girls") and the Go-Go's ("Our Lips Are Sealed"). Roxy Music deliver the sensuous "More Than This." Dire Straits' epic "Romeo and Juliet" is a tad out of place among the slam-bang pop-rock. Modern rockers Girls Against Boys effectively cover Earth, Wind and Fire's "Boogie Wonderland." Blondie contribute "In the Flesh" and a special megamix of "Rapture," plus two newer songs from their comeback effort. --Rob O'Connor

Great 80's Soundtrack...

"If you like the movie, then you'll love the soundtrack. 200 Cigarettes was filled with 80's nostalgia and great 80's pop hits--there were so many good songs, but somehow they managed to cut it down to 15 tracks (a few of the best songs are missing). Still, I love EVERY song on this CD- it's a perfect mix. My favorites are Just What I Needed (The Cars), Save it For Later (Harvey Danger), Our Lips Are Sealed (the Go-Go's), I Want Candy (Bow Wow Wow), I Don't Care (The Ramones) and Romeo & Juliet (Dire Straits). This is one of the CDs that never seems to leave my stereo- I'd recommend it to any 80's music fan."
Some Great Songs

"Most people thought the movie was boring, but I loved its' nostalgia and especially great performances from Christina Ricci, Kate Hudson, and Casey Affleck. The soundtrack is a million times better including a BLONDIE mix which rocks, Nick Lowe's CRUEL TO BE KIND, a smashing new Harvey Danger song (you know the people who sing "Paranoia, Paranoia, everybody's coming to get me...") that's called SAVE IT FOR LATER, my favorite track is also a Dire Straits ballad, ROMEO AND JULIET, not to mention the CARS best song to date JUST WHAT I NEEDED, and 80's pop tunes such as LADIES NIGHT, OUR LIPS ARE SEALED, and I WANT CANDY. Great album, love!"
