"Will someone, the director perhaps, ever revisit this soundtrack and properly flesh it out? There are about 50 songs in the movie, not to mention John Cale's and Laurie Anderson's contributions to the score. So much good music! One gem after another, I'm tellin ya! Wouldn't it be FUN if they created a comp with ALL the music on it?
I suppose I'll have to join the Download Generation and cobble it together myself.
It's worth noting that director Demme, on the commentary track for his EARLY feature "Crazy Mama", chuckles as he recalls how cheaply one could obtain song rights then, having obtained some well-known rock tunes for a pittance. 20 years on, there's not a chance in hell you could do a decent "SW" soundtrack for less than an actual fortune."
Good but misses some essential songs

"This cd is good. I enjoy listening to it very much, and the movie is one of my favorites. But, some of the best songs featured in the film aren't on the cd. A minus to Laurie Anderson and John Cale's sensibilities. If they had included at least one of the less pop-styled reggae flavored tunes, the cd would be that much better. If you're not looking for any hardcore reggae tunes or don't mind some of the better reggae/roots reggae/dub not included, then buy this cd -- you can't miss. Otherwise, your best bet is to steer clear."
Best driving tape ever!

"Had a cassette with this on one side and true stories (talking heads) on the other. Could drive for hours.P.S. Bought a used one for 7.99 on ebay."
