Product Description

Product Description

Out of print in the U.S.! Originally released in 1980, the American Gigolo soundtrack, composed by legendary producer Giorgio Moroder, is best remembered for Blondie's hugely successful single 'Call Me' (which was not available on any of their albums, apart from compilations). The soundtrack's mastermind, Moroder, was ably assisted by Harold Faltermeyer and Keith Forsey, who both would go on to great success as producers and writers on their own (Faltermeyer's 'Axel F Theme' being the most significant). While the movie was a huge success, this soundtrack has taken on a life of it's own over the three decades since it's original release. Eight tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Resurrects Again in 21st C Oct. 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic, not to mention the hugely popular "Call Me" from Blondie(the 8 minutes+ version!). You can feel the indulgence and decadence throughout the album that echoes the theme of the movie. Very atmospheric, seductive and addictive. I remember that I could listen to this album 5 to 6 times a day.
With the remastered recording, the sound is much superb and I have already given the old CD to my friend within a second after I have listened to this re-issued CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Giorgio hits it again May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Indeed a great sountrack for a not so good movie. Ignore the movie and listen to this awesome music score by Giorgio. Im into prog rock but I have this as one of my great none prog albums. Try The Beach and Queen of the Damned soundtracks. These movies and the score are inseperable as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy film but great soundtrack Feb. 9 2008
By Larry VanDeSande - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Richard Gere's coming out party featured a nude scene in this 1980 movie that was pretty cheesy but featured a fabulous soundtrack. Producer-composer Giorgio Moroder put together great topical sounds -- like Blondie's "Call Me" -- with his ripoffs of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto slow movement and other composers to create an aura of eroticism and mystery suitable to the moments portrayed in this flick.

It seems inconprehensible to me there is only one review of this wonderful soundtrack on Amazon. People that like film music should at least listen to the sound bytes and, more likely, invest the tiny amount asked for Moroder's production. The music gave the movie a film noir element that increases its credibility. Dont' hestiate if you like music from the movies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Electropop Standouts of the Period Nov. 1 2005
By L. S. Slaughter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Love Theme" and "Seduction" rate as probably two of the best pop-electronic film themes of the 80s, and, well, "Call Me" is just downright great. Why Giorgio bothered to squeal his way through "Hello W.A.M.", I don't know. It hurt the end of the film, itself, and adds nothing to this soundtrack. "Love and Passion" - lyrics by director Paul Shrader - totally sum up the feelings of any intelligent person who has tried to live too long in Los Angeles.

This dates very well because L.A. is STILL the L.A. of this film (1980) - fun, dangerous, superficial, materialistic - so take it along on your next trip and drive along the lonesome freeways with Moroder's hypnotic electrobeat propelling you along.
