"Martha Coolidge really nailed the soundtrack for this underappreciated 80s gem. Nic Cage and the iridescent Deborah Foreman (what ever happened to this glorious specimen!) light up a clever and funny re-vamp of the Capulets and Montagues in a film littered with spot on captures of 80s youth. A college chum and I caught this movie for the first time on Showtime at midnight in NYC after a night on the town and inexplicably could not turn it off. The movie captures the zeitgeist of the time and the soundtrack is pure distilled 80s -- no corporate bull (Journey), faceless divas (Anita Baker), or schlock (Hall & Oates), this record delivers the stuff that REALLY mattered at the time. Included are the unconscionably ignored classics "Million Miles Away" by the Plimsouls, "Eyes of a Stranger" by the Payolas, and "She Talks in Stereo" by Gary Myricks. Not to mention the quintessential 80s tune "I Melt With You" which has only retroactively become a bellweather for 80s pop because it includes all the trademarks of classic 80s music -- the keyboard trills, the hooks, the spooky U2 slowdown in the middle, the infectious dance groove. The rest of the tunes are equally perfect, notably Josie Cotton's epically politically incorrect "Johnny Are You Queer." The only flaw with this album was the failure to include "Monster of Love", "Shelly's Boyfriend" and "Girls Like Me." Thankfully, this egregious error has been remedied by Volume 2 which includes these and other similar cuts and is only slightly less trippindicular. If you want to remember what a blast music used to be before the Shania Twains, Limp Bizkits, and Kid Rocks rendered radio unlistenable, this is a great starting point."
Bonnie Hayes had 2 songs in the movie that aren't on this CD

"Bonnie Hayes had 2 songs in the movie "Valley Girl" that are not on this CD. Those songs are called "Girls Like Me" and "Shelley's Boyfriend." Both of those songs are from her 1982 album "Good Clean Fun." Unfortunatley, that wonderful album has never been released on CD.
But if you google "Bonnie Hayes," she has her own website where she lets you legally download both of those songs for free. I just thought you might like to know that!"
An 80's Classic

"Growing up in the 80's was one of the best times of my life....and this movie captured the sounds & feelings of that time in a nutshell! The movie was "totally awesome" and it wouldn't be the same without this "to the max" soundtrack. From the great prom scene with Josie Cotton's "Johnny Are You Queer?" to the Flirts "Don't Put Another Dime in the Jukebox", this soundtrack is a must have. The Psych Furs, Men at Work and Modern English ("I Melt With You") also have tracks, as well as two fantastic songs from The Plimsouls ("A Million Miles Away" & "Oldest Story in the World".) Great for parties or just crusing in your car...the 80's live and this soundtrack defines those times!! If you haven't seen the movie, be sure to rent it, as well...you'll see a very very young Nicholas Cage as the punk rocker "Randy" who falls in the love with Valley Girl "Julie" (played by Deborah Foreman). And be sure to get this soundtrack...it'll bring you back to those great times! This is a classic....don't miss out!"
