5.0 out of 5 stars The Heat, or is that Electropop, is On Feb. 29 2004
Format:Audio CD
If the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack epitomized the apex of disco music, Beverly Hills Cop filled that same function in British-style electropop and synth-funk. The genre became the window-frame for acts of all kind, soul and rock artists gone solo. The question therefore is, does it succeed in being engaging despite having the same kind of sound? The answer is yes.
Patti LaBelle's solo viability continued with two songs. "New Attitude" embodies the energetic British New Wave electropop a la Flock of Seagulls, complete with synths, more than the soul she was known for during her LaBelle days. "Stir It Up" is another song in that mode, with that cool bass synth keyboard, and energy that rivals Phil Collins' rendition of "You Can't Hurry Love."
Shalamar's "Don't Get Stopped In Beverly Hills" makes this the second big soundtrack collaboration, the other being Footloose's "Dancing In The Sheets," also released in 1984.
"Emergency" by Rockie Robbins is a standout with amplified drums and pulsing synths. The Top Ten "Neutron Dance," later to turn up on the Pointer Sisters' breakthrough Break Out album, is more electropop than soul, and is representative of how in the 1980's, selected hits helped sell this soundtrack and boost popularity for the movie.
I wonder how many Eagles fans wanted to bop Glenn Frey after hearing "The Heat Is On." More pop than the country-rock his bandmates did, that's for sure. I couldn't get enough of that energetic number, with that catchy chorus and that accompanying wailing sax. This was produced by Keith Forsey of Billy Idol fame and Harold Faltermeyer, who has a key number here.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic!! July 15 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well where do I begin? A perfect soundtrack to a perfect film.
BHC was without a doubt Eddie Murphy's finest movie and the soundtrack album is full of the best music to come out of the 1980's.
It features two fab songs from Patti LaBelle which could possibly be her finest work - "New Attitude" and "Stir It Up".
Harold Faltermeyer's "Axel F" theme is here too and that still remains infectious today - terrific music score that is hard to be beaten.
Glenn Frey's "The Heat Is On" is possibly the most successful pop song to feature a great saxaphone riff in it, and my favorite song on the album - "Neutron Dance" by the Pointer Sisters. A fantastic song which cannot be beaten in terms of how catchy it is. It was featured during the truck chase at the beginning - the best use of a song in a movie - bar none!!
Also on this album we have a few songs that didn't appear in the movie, but are still good. "Don't Get Stopped In Beverly Hills" by Shalamar is great, as is "Emergency" by Rockie Robbins and "Rock N' Roll Me Again" by The System. take particular notice to track 7 - "Gratitude" - performed by non other than Danny Elfman!!
However, the soundtrack is missing "Nasty Girl" by Vanity 6 - the song from the "Stripbar" scene in the movie. I don't know why they decided to keep that off the CD, but the soundtrack remains just excellent without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's Vanity??? May 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is overall a great soundtrack, preceding an even better soundtrack to 'Beverly Hills Cop 2'..but just as with the second soundtrack, this one is missing a song. Remember the strip club scene..the girl [dancing] to 'Nasty Girl' by Vanity. Vanity is the beautiful, soulful voice leading the thumping dance jams of 80s' movies like 'Beverly Hills Cop', 'Action Jackson', 'Coming to America' and more. That song failed to reach this CD. Just as one song from 'Cop 2' aslo did: 'Hold On' by Anita Hill..which was actually poorly re-done for the CD by Corey Hart. Gimme Anita Hill, her version heard only in the movie is much better. This soundtrack does definately deserve a listen though, with hard-to-find great songs like 'Stir It Up' by Patti LaBelle..which originally kept me in the movie theatre until the credits were done..and of course Axel F composed and conducted by award-winning German music composer Harold Faltermeyer. If you're gonna buy either one of these//you should get 1 and 2 together...two great CDs that will be sitting in the honorable front seat of your car for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Y'all have all missed the ball June 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was over 17 when this movie came out. It is one of Eddie Murphy's best. 48- Hours is his best. But this is one of the best soundtracks of the 80's. Don't listen to "I wish I could give 0 out of 5 stars". (...)This album, 'Miami Vice' and 'Top Gun' are the best of the 80's movie music. Though the original release of the soundtrack has a song by Rick James on it, all subsequent releases have not had the song "BHC". Instead the song "Emergency" by Rockie Robbins is on track #4. Which is too bad because the "James" is one of the best. The person who says the Patti LaBelle songs are the worst is also very mistaken.
I have the original with the Rick James song and the 1985 CD release. All the songs are what the Mid - 80's Pop Music was all about. These songd transcended regular soundtrack music and became Top 40 Hits. Also, Glen Frey is also on the 'Miami Vice' T.V. Soundtrack (another Top 40 soundtrack to have).
