5.0 out of 5 stars A masterful collection for its time. March 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm one of the myriad of listeners who once had the original copy and let it slip through my hands in a "temporary lack of judgment" (sold it for chump change to a used-CD store clerk who probably listens to Sum-41 and thinks John Hughes is a dead president). In any case, over the ensuing years I've come back to my senses and recognized this album for its inherent pop value. No, it's admittedly not "essential" by anyone's standards, save the few who fell in love with it on emotional criteria alone. But it's a fine pop classic. Particularly attractive on this album are Everything But the Girl's "Apron Strings" (presented as an alternate version not found on any other album on the planet), Carmel's "It's All in the Game," and that forgettable 80's product by Dr. Calculus. Though Carmel's song apparently appeals more to me than to most other listeners, EBTG's "Apron Strings" was a hands-down favorite across the board. We can be grateful, however, that XTC and General Public's Dave Wakeling are still here, supported by Kate Bush's immortal "This Woman's Work" (an undeniably touching moment in its own right). IRS Records had a gem on their hands back in '88, and despite the contractual red tape it must've taken to set this in motion, we should be grateful that Hughes Music issued this re-release 15 years later. In light of today's dime-a-dozen movie soundtracks, this compilation is a fading glance backwards at something now unacheivable. If you ever come across my original copy of the "She's Having a Baby" soundtrack in your local used CD store, pay the man whatever he's asking for it, take it home, and wear it out. In the meantime, buy eight or nine copies of this one here (it's identical to the original!).

4.0 out of 5 stars 80s to the max, but still great Nov. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
The film that this soundtrack represents (when it's actually in print) was a funny little gem, and from the Breakfast Club on, John Hughes always made sure that his soundtracks were very carefully assembled.
In this case, some great alt-rock from Gene Loves Jezebel ("Desire"), a classic crooner by Bryan Ferry ("Crazy Love"), a Smiths cover by Kirsty MacColl ("You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby"), and one of Kate Bush's best tracks ("This Woman's Work") round out a phenomenal collection of essential 80s tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic! Aug. 13 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"IT'S GOT A PLASTIC FLYWHEEL!" Very good soundtrack to a very funny movie. A couple of the songs are real gems and the rest will take you back to the sound of the mid-80s. This CD used to sell for a pretty penny on ebay which no doubt helped prompt its re-release. Buy a copy or two before it goes out of print again.
