Huh ... I had this as an 8.  It has not aged as well as I would have guessed.  >> 7
Are you ready for me, Ralph?

Ah, the 80's...

Porsche.  There is no substitute.


Yes! {#Clap}{#Music} together with KRAFTWERK one of THE best bands from Germoney! 
I had this cd, an outstanding soundtrack.  10 just for the memories.
Certainly, "the dream is always the same". But do not forget the major learning point from this movie....Sometimes you gotta say what the F*%K!
Having this song on the heels of 'Moving in Stereo' is definitely connecting with an awkward, teenage movie-goer in the 80's!

=BLUSH=

Listen to the Sorcerer soundtrack and watch the movie...fantastic (just rereleased in Blu Ray)

 
Sorcerer is such a great movie and a great TD soundtrack!!

Nice 80s teen boy coming of age segue from Fast Times to Risky Business. The cherry is popped!

Music from Thief (including a cut from Force Majeure, although somewhat retitled) and Legend are also standouts.
Tangerine Dream is Franke, Froese, Baumann. Everything after this line-up is crap.

TD churned out many, many soundtracks back in the day. The band wasn't exactly picky about the quality of the film. Personally, I think "Risky Business" stands the test of time; it's certainly better than "The Girl Next Door" (2004), which repeats the theme of "nice high school virgin meets sexpot with dangerous business associates."

And hey, this album also has Jeff Beck's "The Pump" and Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy", so there's that.

And don't forget, Guido the Killer Pimp!
 First time I hear TD on RP. I almost thought I was the only to love them... Now, I'm ready for Kraftwerk!

TD always takes me to Epcot.

not good
Tangerine Dream = fantastic
The Cars Moving In Stereo -> All Mixed Up segue not done = NOT fantastic
Sublime.  Space music par excellence.
This is such a great track. It makes me think I'm playing Mass Effect :) 

Everybody in my church loves this music...

Cool...Coming after The Cars, makes me want to hear Kraftwerk, maybe "Farhen farhen farhen on the Autobahn..."

I'll take '80's movie soundtracks for $100.00 Alex. I took the el to work today. This song reminds me of a little Japanese Haiku I made up. See if you remember the Scene:

I am riding the el
I am recreating the scene from Risky Business
I am alone.

 "Looks like University of Illinois!"

I'm a proud alum. 
The dream is always the same,,,,,,Joel, Just Get Off the Babysitter.......
The Dream! Yes!
yum yum
me go buy

wow, i bought the album for this and started my love of electronica, never thougt id hear it on "da radio".
that crash at the end sequenced with the arcing from the tracks of the tube.... if you know what I mean.
one of the best lines from any film .... "Ok, which one is the U-Boat Captain?"

Hey Bill!  Yoo Hoo!    What about some Wendy Carlos' "Switched on Bach", if only to edumacate the kiddies here.  :-)

WTF gives you the power.......

Ahh. Good old-school electronica.
Love this song -great memories of seeing it in Risky Business.    "Get off the babysiter Joel!"

Kraftwerk (for one) was formed in the early 1970s.



love this music soooo much...

 


lotsa memories with this...  love it...

You really didn't know? I'm not having a dig at you, honestly, I'm just surprised. Synthesisers were in active use back in the 70s by 'supergroups' such as ELP and Yes, and more obscure 'progressive' bands such as Gong and Amon Duul, and were seen as super-cool and trendy. They were also bloody expensive!





Cool, a little 80's movie soundtrack pair.  Rebecca and Phoebe, etched in our brains, and linked to these songs.

I'll give it a 9, just for the train scene.  (Edit: just read post below.  This might not have been the train scene song, but it still brings back memories, so I'm sticking with it.)

No. That was another track called "Love on a Real Train."  (Also a very good piece of music, IMNTBHO.)

...pre-1980s electronic music groups were the best kind!..certainly there are some consummately talented contemporary synthesists, but in the sixties and seventies the genre was exploding with innovation, true pioneers exploring fantastic new sonic frontiers with every release...
Fun to hear again out of the blue.  Thanks.

How about some Optical Race by Tangerine Dream. There is some very good music on that disc.

Great to hear Tangerine Dream on RP.
Play some "Force Majeure".

Got my hopes up thinking it was Eric Johnson/Tones but the guitar never kicked in.  What a woeful disappointment.  {#Cry}


This music is soooo gooood for the ears...

Good grief! Are these guys still going? I used to listen to TD decades ago, usually after a stiff spliff or three, and at times the experience was almost transcendental. I thought they'd packed in ages ago, with contemporaries like Klaus Schulze. They used to be soooo 1970s/80s and well uncool, but I suppose with the new age of electronica and styles like Trance they could come into their own again. It just goes to show that what goes out of fashion in one decade comes back the next...

Not that this is a great track, mind, a bit anodyne to my mind, but I'd be interested to hear some more TD on RP.
 

TD is now basically just Edgar Froese & his son, with supporting players - not the TD of the '80s by any means.  Christopher Franke and Edgar had a major falling out, Chris now does soundtrack work (Babylon 5 being one of the most visible gigs he's had).  And contrary to 'packing it in', Klaus Schulze is still cranking out the same kind of long-form material he's been known for since he started out - check out https://www.klaus-schulze.com/

It is SOOOO nice, after about 30 years or so, to find out I was not alone in the world!
  :-)

I still dig a few TD tracks every now and then. The OLD stuff, not so much the more new-agey stuff they did later on. Although this track is pretty nice, too.

Brilliant observation. Agreed...certainly IN their family tree somewhere.  {#Good-vibes}
Ahhhhhhh... I can feel the steam coming from the shower...
One the few truly cool things in Tom Cruise's filmography is his bonking of Leonard Cohen's future squeeze on the L.
OMG... forgot about these guys. Had some of their stuff about a hundred and forty years ago.... cooool{#Cool}
How about something from "Optical Race?" One of their best albums, in my humble opinion.
Is that guy from Princeton still around?

Yeah... he's talking to a few of the girls.

Talking?

They're very good talkers.

"Princeton can use a guy like Joel"

I liked "Poland" the best, especially the first two sides.


Wow, surprised to hear this on RP. Thought I was on a New Age station, but I like all that so its OK with me.

few and far thanks
Are you ready for me...Ralph? Hawt.
the clue is in the title. All those German synthesiser bands of the 70s sound the same, but it's not a bad sound, for all that

Major high school flashback here.

You are correct . . .
Let's see if others might later jump in on this song-versus-music question; I've wanted to say something similar elsewhere, but never did. As for this "piece," I rather like the music -- it's very, well, musical -- but I see your point since I can't say as I'm hearing any song at all.

I disagree with the implied logic here. Isn't "music" a broader field than "song"?
You are correct. It appears that in my passionate dislike for the song, I got a bit disjointed. My point however remains.
Pipes wrote:
Hardly even constitutes a song let alone music.

I kept waiting for the song to go somewhere but it was just more of the same repetitive noise over and over! Hardly even constitutes a song let alone music.
Has anyone heard TD's Purgatorio album? There are some great songs on that one too! I will certainly upload them.
Well, not quite this one. Years and years ago the track "Get off the babysitter" from the same soundtrack was used as background music for a local TV station that was promoting their new female news anchor. I laughed myself silly when I figured out the song title.

Je suis TRES (heart) the Dream, but y'know what, I've developed such a deep, abiding, passionate HATRED for Tom The Wacko Cruise that I can't stand to even think of this film. So I'll just disassociate the music from the movie 'cuz I haven't bothered to watch this movie in about 15 years anyway...
I love Tangerine Dream. Anything from Force Majeure would be great to hear.
Mmmm...... Tangerine Dream. Wow.

Beautiful scene! The stuttered shots of the train on the tracks along with the sex scene make this piece very very memorable... I give it an 8

the soundtrack and the way it was meshed with the film are possibly the best thing about this movie. there's one part, where we're watching the train move away into the sunset, about to enter a tunnel, and there's a tiny spark off of the wheels that exactly lines up with a tiny "spark" in the score -- i've always thought that was brilliant.
Except for a young mostly nude Rebecca DeMornay. But you're right, this song does bring back incredible details.
