One summer, the only cassette I had was this soundtrack. "She's Like the Wind" and I've Had the Time of My Life" were my favorites and I listened to it over and over again. This cd's songs remind me of that summer and that "Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner." The Dirty Dancing soundtrack is one of the great soundtracks of all time!

I wanted to write a dirty review, but it's really superb

"This has not been my best summer--for one thing, a lot of people passed away. I certainly had a lot of respect and admiration for Patrick Swayze. He had worlds of talent as evidenced by his fine performances in motion pictures--and his singing on this album. This CD soundtrack to one of Patrick's movies, Dirty Dancing, has terrific music that gets my foot tapping to the beat of these tunes every time I play this album! There is a good diversity of artists and the quality of the sound is excellent. I also like the artwork.

The album begins with Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes performing "(I've Had) The Time of My Life;" they do this with panache and I'm very impressed. They sing together very well and this opening number is easy on the ear and memorable to say the least. The music makes good use of the percussion and strings, too. Great! The Ronettes follow with one of their best tunes ever, "Be My Baby." "Be My Baby" is quite passionate; and The Ronettes' excellent diction and timing makes their performance very strong. The percussion is excellent and overall this music lacks nothing--The Ronettes' "Be My Baby" is all THAT good. In addition, Patrick Swayze and Wendy Fraser do a great job on "She's Like the Wind." "She's Like the Wind" hit the airwaves big when it was originally released and that's grand; it brings back good memories for me.

"Hungry Eyes" was a hit for Eric Carmen; he delivers this faultlessly and I love it. Maurice Williams and The Zodiacs do justice to "Stay;" they do this one without ever letting go of a single superfluous note! The Blow Monkeys do a stunning job on "You Don't Own Me" which I first heard sung by Leslie Gore; and there's another gem in Bruce Channel's "Hey Baby." "Hey Baby" has a musical arrangement that fits perfectly with Bruce's vocals and I particularly like that harmonica.

Mickey & Sylvia do a classic hit entitled "Love Is Strange;" they sound great together and it has a certain romantic flavor to it that I just plain like. The CD also ends strong with "(I'll Remember) In the Still of the Night" performed by The Five Satins. The Five Satins made it all seem so easy--but of course we know that it really wasn't all that easy. Their talent carried them through.

Overall, the CD soundtrack to the movie Dirty Dancing is loaded with incredible music; I mentioned most of the tracks but there's really not a dud in the bunch here. I highly recommend this for people who enjoy romantic music both old and (relatively) new. Of course, fans of the movie itself would do well to add this to their collections.

R.I.P. Patrick! Thank you for everything!"
