80's Rock Music
The rock music of the 80's was very optimistic and upbeat. This is why 80's rock music ends up in a lot of good movies. There seems to be at least one good 80's song on almost every soundtrack. Some songs show up on multiple movie soundtracks. This is one of the best ways to accumulate great 80's rock music without buying a bunch of individual albums.
One of the best movie soundtracks for 80's rock music is The Wedding Singer. This film has songs from Billy Idol to The Culture Club. The movie isn't have bad either. Starring Drew Berrymore and Adam Sandler, this movie couldn't be funnier if you threw in Cheech and Chong.
Another great movie for 80's rock music is The Breakfast Club. This movie was created in the 80's and is still as enjoyable today as it was back then. The theme from this movie is perhaps the most famous song on its soundtrack. The theme song that was written by Keith Forsay and Steve Schiff was performed by the band Simple Minds. “Don't You Forget About Me” became an instant 80's rock music hit.
Another great movie was released in 1997 with a great 80's rock music soundtrack. Romy and Michele's High School Reunion starred a famous cast including Lisa Kudrow, Mira Sorvino, Janeane Garofalo, Camryn Manheim, and Alan Cumming. This movie was hilarious and included a host of 80's rock music including “Foot Loose”, “Time After Time”, and Turning Japanese”.
Movie soundtracks are a great way to purchase a CD with a variety of music. Instead of all of the songs sounding the same, you get a bunch of great songs. The ones listed above are great for fans of 80's rock music. They have the classic 80's music that you are looking for and the movies are great too.
