Absolutely. Rebbecca DeMornay gets me every time. And the movie that made Tom Cruise.  {#Bananajumprope}
Nice!

Anybody else hearing Steve Reich? Music for 18 Musicians?

Anyone up for a choo-choo ride?

He was downsized due to the poor economy.
.....smiley................thanks for playing TD,bill.......what about some grobschnitt,eloy,kraan???
Growing up in Chicago, this music instantly makes me think of....well, Chicago. {#Angel}

Other than Rain Man and maybe Jerry Maguire, this is Tom's best movie, in my opinion!! 
Risky business

Thank you for playing this.  I never expected to hear it on Radio Paradise.  And that's why I keep listening.  Please continue the pleasant surprises!
Most Excellent!!!

How about "The Graduate"?  .... "plastic" 

I see some resemblance in the young Tom Cruise "Joel" character and the young Dustin Hoffman "Ben" character.

Interesting that they would be cast as brothers later in "Rain Man".

"Get off the babysitter, Joel."

There was a movie a few years ago that looked like a fun modern-day version of RB, but it fell fairly flat towards the end. RB and The Graduate had strong social commentary behind the coming-of-age humor. Movies these days can't juggle that many balls.

Heard it from the other room.  Of all the "New Age/Electronic" Music, nothing sounds like TD.

Everybody in my hotel room loves this music...

Back when both myself and Tom Cruise were cool...sigh.  Still love the memories though...

Remember the movie and this song well...  time flies when we're having fun... sigh...  love it...

 

Definitely a Jean-Luc Ponty feel to this one. I like it! And speaking of Jean-Luc Ponty .... Bill? :)

I think they required everyone to smoke in 80s movies.
I really love this song, no longer have a copy, and have really missed it. Thank You!
tonight seems to be the ribirth of my giovinezza. thank's a lot - a great feeling

Are you ready for me, Ralph?
I'd like to hear a segue from this into "Burn" by The Cure.
Porsche.  Accept no substitue.

(...although i prefer lotus...)
Totally agree, the early analogue stuff is the bizz, I first heard them in the early 70's, Phaedra was on John Peel in the nights. The track names were pretty well out there as well.....

On an almost unrelated note, if you ever wanted a Porsche 928 then now is a good time. Prices seem to have bottomed out. Running/driving cars that need some attention are going for about $5-6K. The best ones go for for $15-25. Expect to pay a little more for the 4-cam engines and/or the 5-speed (about %80 of them sent to North America are automatics).

They're still expensive cars to maintain, however. Don't pick up any of the sub-$5000 cars unless you're a mechanic, it'll probably need $10K worth of repairs.
 
I'll come by your dealership when I win the lottery.

Big yay!
Excellent! Love this song!

I always thought this tune was by Global Communication, from 76:14.   I now realize this is the one from the movie. 
Hey Bill,

nice "love" segue...

I also think I hear Beck's "Think I'm in Love" having basically the same chord progression as "Love on a Real Train" that followed...

I like this a lot - but it's a total steal from Steve Reich's "Music for 18 Musicians" - one of my desert island discs.

And I agree with "Guido (Joey Pants) is easily the strongest character in the film" - which is why the movie takes its dark turn when he shows up to spoil the lighthearted fun.

I figured someone else had to have heard the distinct similarity.

know that I think about it, you're right.

I never tire of this.  Brings back great memories of the movie and my life at that time.  mmmmmmmmmm

*edit* It has kind of a Jean Luc Ponty sound to it....guess it's a lot of that 80's synth....


Wow, this really appeals to me for some reason. I guess I like sex AND trains.

Agreed! And the Sorcerer soundtrack as well.

YAH!! I still believe that their oldest stuff, done in all those huge analog synths was their best. The more recent stuff is more New-Ageish fluff.

He certainly turns out to be the ultimate field test for a Future Enterpriser.

TD is a fantastic band. Not a lot of fan traffic Check out their album Lily on the Beach... This is some great crusing music or music to just chill out to.

Yes, point taken. Especially about the film being a quiet satire. On reflection, it had a lot to do with the reality of adolescent fantasy. Amazing to think that Joe Pantoliano (aka Guido the Killer Pimp) was playing cowardly, weaselly sleazeballs even back then.
Hardly a 'cowardly weaselly sleazball', Guido (Joey Pants) is easily the strongest character in the film. "In a repressed economy, never ever **** with another mans livelyhood"

I am a fan of Tangerine Dream, though I hadn't previously heard their Risky Business soundtrack... I highly recommend their Legend soundtrack... tried to upload my favourite song ("The Dance") to RP a while back to share, but bitrate was too low...
Putting this next to Beck was genius. Tangerine Dream sounds like Tangerine Dream and I enjoy their album. Beck sounds like Beck yet I don't feel compelled to buy his stuff. (I like Beck just in easy doses)
I took a screenwriting class and was informed that the script for Risky Business is, in writerly circles, cited as an example of a "perfect" screenplay, and is highly highly revered. I guess plausability does not factor into their rating process. :)
:bounce: :propeller: :propeller:

Hmmm, well, dunno about that. I mean, yes, the plot does get a bit out of bounds for those head shaking filmgoers who shine the interrogation light on what is credible, "logical." But many of the themes, attitudes, and settings of this film are accurate reflections of a consumer driven society. Essentially, this film was a quieter satire, better taken as a whole than for dissection of script mechanics.

Great movie, even though it had nothing to do with reality. I really wish this was on iTunes. TD does great soundtrack work, including for "Thief."
This is the original pimp song...
Great train scene with music to match. Sheer perfection. I love TD. And Rebecca DeMornay & Tom were pretty damn hotski in that film.
Definitely influential.

Wow, after this I just dug out the Thief soundtrack I haven't listened to in like 10 years. Awesome!
Love this song. These guys were on a soundtrack role in the 80's. Also a very seductive and sexy scene in that movie. It all came together well to create a memorable movie sequence.
Steve Reich?
Me, I'm thinking of Rebecca de Mornay ... Takes me back to my "yout" (thanks Joe Pesci).

Good music to watch paint dry to.

I loved that movie! Did TD do the music for that? It was a pretty cool soundtrack as I recall.
There are so many better TD tracks out there than this one. Cloudburst Flight from Force Majeure is radio friendly and shows the rocking side of this groundbreaking group.
This isn't music, it's a journey Reminds me a lot of Chicane, particularly their first album, Far From The Maddening Crowd.
Talk about flashbacks ... er, is it warm in here or is it just me? :fire:
Acoustically supurd! I love it.
Tangerine Dream - the Legend Soundtrack! i'd love to hear some of that here. LOVE IT!
That was a fun little flashback... My brain instantly recalled the train scene after a few measures. Q
The Sorcerer soundtrack has some good moments on it, too.
Excellent. Have not heard them in, what, 25 years? Still have their LP's.

Tangerine Dream! This is the song that originally got me hooked on them so long ago. Ended up seeing them in concert once in Dallas -- incredible, if you're into this kind of music. They've put out an unbelievable number of albums since 1970 (more than 150!). Would love to hear more of them on RP!
I was hooked after I saw the movie "Theif" with James Caan

Is that a typo?
Well, the page below has 156 listed on it -- I don't actually know how many are true albums vs. EPs etc., but any way you look at it, it's impressive. When I went to their concert, there was a guy in front of me wearing one of their t-shirts from a previous concert, and on the back of it was a huge long list. At first I thought it was the standard shirt with concert dates on the back, and then I realized they were albums! https://www.connollyco.com/discography/tangerine_dream/
