The film was a relatively standard teen comedy, although somehow it managed to provide a springboard to the careers of two highly accomplished actors, Sean Penn and Jennifer Jason Leigh. But the real jewel of this movie was the soundtrack, an unexpected mix of stellar songs from well-established artists and unknowns as well. Jackson Browne got a lot of mileage from the single "Somebody's Baby", a top ten hit that still is heard frequently today; but it's confusing to me that Don Henley's excellent "Love Rules", a melancholy homage to the shyness and sensitivity of a teenage boy, is forgotten and unknown in spite of the artist's high standing. Ditto to Stevie Nicks' "Sleeping Angel", one of her lesser known yet still excellent songs. BIlly Squier's "Fast Times" is a syncopated gem; Don Felder's "Never Surrender" is one of the limited and solid samplings we have of the solo work of a key member of the Eagles; Quarterflash, at the height of its short time of popularity, provided a simple yet excellent litte tune with "Don't Be Lonely"; and Oingo Boingo wraps up the album with the high-energy, infectious "Goodbye, Goodbye". The hidden gem is the only significant song from the Baltimore-based band Ravyns, with the excellent, if basic, rocker "Raised On The Radio"...today, it sounds like an energetic longing for the days prior to MTV, which was a common theme in 1982. All in all, this is as good a soundtrack as was made; every song is an original, there's very little (if any) filler, and better-known soundtracks of the era, such as "Footloose", "Flashdance" and "Beverly Hills Cop" sound pale in comparison. Take a chance and pick this up....it's well worth your time.

This soundtrack to one of the early 1980's most enjoyable teen flicks is without a doubt a 5-star effort. Most soundtracks as a whole tend to miss the boat because they (especially these days) seem to be put together by a marketing team to try appeal/sell to as broad an audience as possible no matter how uncohesive the final product turns out or how tired or bad the song selection turns out to be. In the worst of cases, soundtracks wind up including songs "inspired" by the movie (talk about a stretch!!!!) or songs that only appeared in the credits after the audience is long gone. An example of the latter is the soundtrack to one of the "Batman" movies, as there were at least 3 different songs that were never part of the movie and only appeared one after the other in the bloated closing credits.
Fortunately, this soundtrack plays fair by compiling a generous 19 songs that not only worked beautifully in the movie, but they also work well as part an independent musical product. What is also interesting about this collection is that almost all songs were either written specifically for the movie (best exemplified by Billy Squire's "Fast Times (The Best Years Of Our Lives") or had never appeared on any of the artists' respective releases to date. Highlights include Jackson Browne's "Somebody's Baby," Don Henley's "Love Rules," and Timothy B. Schmit's take on "So Much In Love." I also loved Ravyn's "Raised, The Go-Go's "Speeding," and the contagious film-ending "Goodbye, Goodbye," by Oingo Boingo.

Like Heavy Metal, the soundtrack for Fast Times At Ridgemont High was long out-of-print until 1994 or 1995, when both were finally issued on CD, and the music here is a mixture of late 70's California rock, as personified by ex-Eagles flying solo, and new age popsters. The two sounds are disparate but they make for a superb compilation. Here are the highlights.
The main theme song is the rhythmic but semi-melancholy "Somebody's Baby" by Jackson Browne. "going walk up to her, I'm going to talk to her" reflects Mark Ratner's feelings towards Stacey.
With "Waffle Stomp", ex-Eagle Joe Walsh has one of his goofy songs with a stomping beat. "You can punch out your boss/get fired from your job/collect unemployment/for your enjoyment/take out he trash/come down with a rash" and so on. One of the funnier songs here.
Fellow ex-Eagle Don Henley comes next with the tender guitar and piano "Love Rules." Standout lyric: "I wish I didn't have so much to feel/it's much too scary and it's all too real"
Louise Goffin's poppy "Uptown Boys" has a bit of 60's girl-group stylings in the chorus and backing singers, but the pre-chorus bits have that California sound a la Ronstadt or Karla Bonoff. Timothy B. Schmit's fingersnapping "So Much In Love" is a nice bit of doowop, with only a bass and drums coming in. The Ravyns' rocking "Raised On The Radio" is heard at least twice, once when Brad is washing his car.
The Go-Go's' "Speeding" has a jamming beat reminiscent of "We Got The Beat", which wasn't included here despite playing during the first scene, but has a sound close to their Vacation era. One of the best songs by them and on this album.
