Product Description

Amazon.ca

Director Joel Schumacher, who went on to helm many big-budget, tiny-intellectual movies, gave us an 1980s update of the story of the vampire. It was all hip, good-looking, and tremendously vacuous. Similarly, the music doesn't break any new ground or offer much that's timeless. INXS' collaborations with Jimmy Barnes are fine, for instance, but Foreigner vocalist Lou Gramm's "Lost in the Shadows (The Lost Boys)" verges on the painful in a way that only overwrought 1980s music can. Roger Daltrey's take on Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" is by the numbers, and so wasted. It's only Echo and the Bunnymen's cover of The Doors' "People Are Strange" that warrants much attention, even if it's, erm, buried. --Scott Wilson

4.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Blessing Feb. 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
While I'd like to give the soundtrack five stars based completely on the value of three songs, I feel I must admit that certain tracks are... almost embarrassing.
Of course, two mildly distasteful tracks on a ten track CD is not too bad a score.
I think I'll have to do this track by track, as each song (even those of less quality) is extremely divergent from the others, to my ear.
1.Good Times
In most senses, this is not a remarkable song in any way. However, I dare you to control that urge to dance a little.
2.Lost in the Shadows (The Lost Boys)
Musically, I enjoy this song to an extreme, and, outside of its chorus, the vocals, and the lyrics are not too bad(though more can be said for the lyrics than the vocals). Yet that trashy, piercing, repetitive chorus does grind at the nerves, making this song occasionally hard to listen to.
3. Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me
I cannot offer an appropriate evaluation of this song, for my thoughts of it are too much influenced by personal memories it evokes.
4. Laying Down the Law
The worst I can say about this song is that it is cliché, the best I can say is that I have a mild affection for the vocal track.
5.People Are Strange
I love covers, I don't know why. There is something about the interpretation of one artist's work by another, in their work and not silly analytical words is moving to me. What's more, Echo And The Bunnymen does very well for themselves here. Dare I even venture to suggest that their arrangement was more... (Hm, complex? Interesting?) musically than the (deeply cherished and oft danced to) original.
6.Cry Little Sister(Theme from The Lost Boys)
What does one say about a song that speaks for itself?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lost Boys Sept. 16 2002
By jo
Format:Audio CD
The Lost Boys movie was indeed a classic of it's time and with Joel Schumacher at the helm it's no wonder that the soundtrack is indeed in itself as good as the movie.
With the haunting yet well placed " Cry Little Sister " as it's main theme this movie was sure to capture every teenagers attention in the 80's. This song on it's own is truely a magnificent track from an equally magnificent Gerard Mcmann.
Let us though not forget that other artists on the soundtrack have too conjured up what can only be described as one of the most played and talked about sountrack of its day. The tracks " Will never grow old and they will never die. "
All that it leaves for me to say then is that for anybody who wishes to feel alive, full of power and yet taken to that special place where noone else can touch us in our minds and hearts then I would most willingly recommend The Lost Boys soundtrack to everybody. Good Listening friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Did you know?... July 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
So, I was watching this t.v. show the other day and a certain song just kind of jumped out at me. The song droned over in my head for at least two days 'til I couldnt take it anymore and had to research it. It took forever to find the title and author but I did, then I tried to find a web addy for the song and I couldn't, thus my long search turned me here. When I found the album that this song was on, it all made sence to me. My friend is obsessed with 'The Lost Boys' movie and "Cry Little Sister" is the theme song for the movie. Only fitting that it be on a show that is just as mysterious as vampires--The Witchblade. I'm obsessed with this show so now the need for theropy has gone full circle. Needless to say, I own this CD and love every minute of it. This song is the best reason for owning the CD. It totally kicks!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Occasionally excellent March 9 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Maybe it's because it always brings back great memories of being a teenager in the late 80s, and everything that goes with that. But there are some genuinely good songs here, unusually good for a soundtrack album. Yeah, so there's some dross here as well. ("Power Play" and "Lost in the Shadows" are both pop by numbers.) But "Cry Little Sister" is a great slice of gothic pop, "I Still Believe" is beltingly good (with an awesome rather than cliched sax part), and "Beauty Has Her Way" is one of my all-time favourites. Who the hell are Mummy Calls, anyway? Who is the vocalist with the Bowie-esque vocal? I have no idea. But I love the song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and Compelling March 21 2001
Format:Audio CD
I give this cd four stars not because it is good quality but because there is no official score of the film music and this soundtrack has to also serve as a score. The introduction music has never been released to cd, only the Song "Cry little sister", which contains the regular singing and not score. And, also, the only film score track is the last one on the cd which seems to have been put there to take up space and say that there was ten tracks. If only Thomas Newman had released a film score with all the actual film music used. A soundtrack is great but a score should also have been done.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Permanent In My CD Collection! Jan. 28 2003
By Shipper
Format:Audio CD
My favorite songs of this album: 1)Good Times: A Happy,Get-In-The-Party Mood song! 2)Lost In The Shadows: Darker,but still an awesome party-mood song. 6)Cry Little Sister: This(and 'I Still Believe')...is the song that prompted me to buy the soundtrack. Haunting,Beautiful,Soulful,Gothic,Passionate. 8)I Still Believe: This is one of my top 'motivational' songs. I play this constantly when I need to continue to believe in or do something like work,etc. Also an awesome, Sensual,Dancy,Turn-it-up-LOUD,Inspirational,Righteous-sounding,Passionate song! Here it is 2003, and I STILL constantly play this album!
