VHS Rewind! – 1980s Soundtrack Tunes
“VHS Rewind hopes that everyone is doing well and staying healthy during these crazy times.
We are presenting another all-music show, this time focusing on 1980s soundtrack songs.
Here are some of the ground rules: the song must have appeared (i.e. been heard) in a 1980s movie and/or its must have appeared on a soundtrack album for that movie (sometimes it was one or the other). We didn’t take the easy way out (no BEVERLY HILLS COP tunes; no FLASHDANCE tunes, no FAME, no “Power of Love” from BACK TO THE FUTURE). We went for deep, deep, deep cuts on the choice of movies and the songs to feature.
For those who grew up in the 1980s, we are certain this episode will being back memories and make you smile (and maybe want to watch some of the featured movies again since you may have forgotten them); if you did not grow up in the 1980s, we are certain this episode will make you wish you did live through the 1980s and make you smile (and maybe want to watch some of the featured movies again since you may not have heard of them). We hope this episode gives you a 90-minute escape from reality and takes you back to the glorious world of 1980s soundtrack music.” – Chris Hasler
