"Dirty Dancing brings back many good memories. It truly is a wonderful film in that it doesn't come across as a routine, sloppy production like so many love stories can be. What compliments the ethos of the film is the sizzling soundtrack. The story in the film is set in the 1960's though the majority of its soundtrack are tracks recorded in the 1980's and they do admittedly sound very distinctive to that era but nevertheless it still makes for a tremendously enjoyable soundtrack.
I've Had The Time Of My Life is a song that forever will be associated with Dirty Dancing and it's an absolutely magnificent recording at that. as the song plays you almost visualise the triumphant climax of the film where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer grey do some electrifying dancing.
Be my Baby is a fantastic soul classic sung by the highly underrated group, The Ronettes whereas Patrick Swayze surprisingly puts in a stunning and powerful performance on the breathtakingly beautiful, She's Like's The Wind. Hungry Eyes is another stand out track. With its beautiful musical arrangements and a fabulous performance from Eric Carmen, the tack is quite simply a classic - a vastly underrated one1
Every track on here is an absolute classic with main highlights being glorious soul classics like Stay by William and Maurice, the silly but fun Love Is Strange, Overload and more contemporary recordings like the swinging, Yes and the totally magnificent, Where Are You Tonight? Superb recordings all round from an equally superb, classic movie. Highly Recommended!"
