Not a huge fan of the movie, and I personally don't need to ever hear OMD's "If You Leave" (a good tune that has been overplayed IMO). That said the rest of the album is a great collection from the 80's - other than the travesty of a re-recording of the Nik Kershaw classic "Wouldn't It Be Good" - what the eff were they thinking?
1. If You Leave - Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark 2. Left of Center - Suzanne Vega w/ Joe Jackson 3. Get To Know Ya - Jesse Johnson 4. Do Wot You Do - INXS 5. Pretty In Pink - The Psychedelic Furs 6. Shell-Shock - New Order 7. Round, Round - Belouis Some 8. Wouldn't It Be Good - Danny Hutton Hitters 9. Bring On The Dancing Horses - Echo & The Bunnymen 10. Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want - The Smiths
The album was listed among "Best Movie Soundtracks: The 15 Film Music Compilations That'll Change Your Life" in The Huffington Post, and "The 25 Greatest Soundtracks of All Time" in Rolling Stone.
Love Pretty in Pink, Left of Center, Bring on the Dancing Horses, and Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want. Two of the non-singles are also great fun (Jesse Johnson and INXS)
