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

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.
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?Read more ›
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.

This movie is one of the best vampire, or even horror movies of all time. It just adds to the spookiness of the movie to have an awesome soundtrack like this one. Read morePublished on Oct. 14 2003 by Kyle Smith

I am quite frankly surprised at the pan given to the movie and soundtrack by the editor!! The movie is entertaining; not an Academy-winner, but how many horror movies are? Read morePublished on Aug. 2 2000 by JillMaria
