Product Description

If film and music fans sometimes wonder why soundtracks are often little more than pastiches of past pop hits and chart flavors of the moment, it's largely due to the blockbuster success of releases like this collection from 1987's surprise Patrick Swayze/Jennifer Grey romantic hit. The film's retro-romantic concerns came shrewdly wrapped in a (largely manufactured) dance craze conceit tailor-made for such pop chestnuts as the Ronettes' "Be My Baby," the Zodiacs' "Stay," and the Five Satins' "In the Still of the Night." Mickey and Sylvia once again argued that "Love Is Strange"--if not quite as strained as Swayze's own attempt at balladry, "She's Like the Wind." Eric Carmen's "Hungry Eyes" showcased the former Raspberries leader to good effect, but the real soundtrack sweepstakes winner here was the Jennifer Warnes/Bill Medley duet "(I've Had) The Time of My Life." That performance not only won the Best Original Song Oscar the following year, but became one of the era's most performed songs and a ubiquitous radio staple. --Jerry McCulley

3.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Dancing - original film track 5 July 2010
By Jen
Format:Audio CD
That is what I was disappointed with. I thought it was going to be the FULL soundtrack, but it turned out to be only a selection of 12 tracks out of at least 25. It does say 'a selection' on the sleeve, but in such small print I could not read it. I feel it should say this in the description, as I know now of a number of people who have been caught out like I was. I do like the selection of tracks on it, however, and am especially pleased it includes 'She's Like the Wind', written and performed by Patrick Swayze.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Will Definitely Get You Dancing 16 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you saw the movie, then you cannot afford to wait another day to buy this album. The Dirty Dancing sound track encompasses all the fury, the excitement and the emotion that made the movie a number one hit. It contains toe-tapping tunes such as "Be My Baby " and "Yes". But even more impressive there are the numerous slow, deep songs that bring all the emotions of the movie rushing back to you, such as "Hungry Eyes", "She's Like The Wind", and of course, "I've Had The Time Of My Life" . This album is a wonderful addition to any collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Fab 20 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is the perfect soundtrack , containing all songs featured in the movies. 'Shes like the wind' is unbelieveable. You wouldn't think it was Patrick Swayze. The main theme 'Time Of My Life ' is the perfectly classic sound to the classic movie . Dirty Dancing Rocks.

Dirty Dancing, the movie, is a classic. Not a lot of people want to admit that, especially boys because Dirty Dancing is bascially a Chick Flick. Not that there's anything wrong with boys liking it of course. The soundtrack is great because as you listen to it, you find yourself watching the movie in your head, remembering quotes from it and I think if there is some kind of brain usage when you listen to an album, it makes it even better. I don't really want to say more about it, as those lovers of Dirty Dancing will understand exactly what I mean. Listen and thoroughly enjoy. And don't carry too many watermelons!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Dancing - Soundtrack 16 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have always been a big fan of the movie as I believe it to be the most romantic feel good film ever made and it is partly due to the great soundtrack. 'She's like the wind' is my fav song on the album followed closely by 'The time of my life' and 'Be my baby'. I hope you all love it as much as I do.

From my all time favourite film this is the soundtrack to die for, and one I never tire of listening to. In fact this is my favourite CD of my collection. For anybody who generally loves the music from this era and for anybody who loves the film itself this is a must have!
With a varied mixture of tracks to sing along too this is a fabulous CD to suit everybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time of my life.... 25 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
I adored the sountrack to the movie, and, being a bit of a retro-holic, went and bought this sountrack. It has every song, and i mean EVERY song, even if it is played in the movie for a few seconds, it is on this album!. 2 CD's packed with some great music. The case itself is a nod to the retro, instead of being a normal CD case, being one very much like the LP cases. The middle has a small book filled with stills from the movie. A truley good buy for anyone who loved the movie, or 60's mousic.
