Yeah, that "cool vampire movie" of our generation.
"Then what are you, the Flying Nun??!!" said Sam.
Anyway, I recently got ahold of the soundtrack from the movie that showed us some towns "have too many damn vampires," because I was looking for more music like "Cry Little Sister," by Gerard McMann; the theme song everyone knows in the goth crowd. I mean, Holy Christ in whiteface and Doc Martens, we grew up to that! All mopey and junk, thinking Robert Smith would save us all (I am still waiting; at least he was in South Park). But, alas, I am now listening to such bad 80s music, some by big names like INXS and Echo and the Bunnymen (who does a limp cover of the Doors' hit, "People are Strange"), I can barely contain my laughter at my desk.
I mean, it's that bad. It so perfectly nails the generic humdrum of an 80s movie, that I can see off-the-shoulder-sweater-wearing Molly Ringwald rolling her eyes at the angst-du-jour, or Alley Sheety biting her lower lip in indecision, while Charlie Sheen looks at some problem with squinted eyes and a hairstyle normally seen on blond Norwegian sailors. Gag me with a spoon!
The only other salvageable track is a strange piece that would fit well in a Tim Burton film, and that's "To the Shock of Miss Louise," a haunted calliope by Thomas Newman (ninjacooter, you'd like this one). But, alas, it's only 1:22 long.
