A Nostalgic Win: The Lost Boys

The Lost Boys is not a movie that I ever saw, and it is not one that I plan on seeing anytime in the near present future.  It is a horror-ish movie about teenage vampires in California who bite people and cause them to turn into Harold Camping.  There is enough craziness out in California that I don’t need to worry about teenage vampires.  But the soundtrack is a classic 80’s soundtrack, right up there with 9 1/2 Weeks (objectionable movie, great soundtrack) and Pretty In Pink.

The soundtrack features “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me” by Roger Daltrey, which would later be remade by George Michael and Elton John.  It also features performances by INXS, Lou Gramm (former lead singer of Foreigner), and Echo and the Bunnymen, as well as lesser known artists Gerard McMann, Eddie and the Tide, and Tim Cappello.

There is enough craziness out in California without having to worry about teenage vampires.

In short, this album is a must-have for those of you who are nostalgic about movie soundtracks from the best decade of music gone by, the 80’s.
