The Hit Soundtrack to the Hit Motion Picture Composed and Performed by Mark Knopfler, Except the Title Tune, which was Voiced by None Other Than Willy Deville.
Laced with almost metaphysically challenging guitar work and laden with rich, full-orchestral arrangements, The Princess Bride soundtrack qualifies as one of Mark Knopfler's cinematic triumphs. Romantically lyrical melodies like "I Will Never Love Again" contrast brightly with fun frolics like "The Friends' Song" and edgy mood pieces like "The Cliffs of Insanity." While most soundtracks are really just compilations of hits or variations on a single theme, Knopfler's play more like symphonies, each movement as fulfilling as the last. Though The Princess Bride doesn't quite carry off the emotional impact of Local Hero or Cal, it does offer up some terrific music and one good love song, Willy Deville's "Storybook Love." --L.A. Smith

The music in the movie is barely noticeable. It doesn't detract from the movie at all. You won't notice how much of an impact that it does have until you hear the music on its own without the movie playing over it. If you have seen the movie only once, the songs on this soundtrack will conjure the images from the movie. You can almost hear Fezzik and Inigo exchanging rhymes on "The Friend's Song", and the daring climb on "The Cliffs of Insanity".
As you listen to the soundtrack, you'll be seeing the movie in your mind. There are few soundtracks that are so intertwined with the movie that they can elicit such imagery. Knopfler is able to pull off that feat. If you liked the movie, the soundtrack is definitely worth it.
