Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

The Lost Boys - Soundtrack

The Lost Boys is a 1987 America horror film about two young Arizonans who move to California and end up fighting a gang of teenage vampires. The film was directed by Joel Schumacher and started:

Jason Patric as Michael Emerson
Kiefer Sutherland as David
Corey Haim as Sam Emerson
Dianne West as Lucy Emerson
Barnard Hughes as Grandpa Emerson
Edward Harrmann as Max
Jami Gertz as Star
Cory Feldman as Edgar Frog
Jamison Newlander as Alan Frog
Brooke McCarter as Paul
Billy Wirth as Dwayne
Alex Winter as Marko

Thomas Newman wrote the film score to be an eerie blend of orchestra and organ arrangement while the music soundtrack contains a number of notable songs and several covers, including 'Good Times', a duet between INXS and former Cold Chisel lead singer Jimmy Barnes which reached number 1 on the Australian charts in early 1987. This cover version of a 1960s Australian hit by the Easybeats was originally recorded to promote the Australian Made tour of Australia in early 1987, headlined by INXS and Barnes.

Tim Capello's cover of The Calls #I Still Believe' was featured in the film as well as on the soundtrack. Tim Capello makes a small cameo appearance in the movie playing the song at the Santa Carla boardwalk, with his saxophone and trademark bodybuilder muscles on display.

The soundtrack also features a cover version of The Doors' song 'People Are Strange' by Echo and the Bunnymen. The song as it featured in the movie is an alternate, shortened version with a slightly different music arrangement. This version has not been released as of yet.

Lou Gramm, the famed lead singer of Foreigner, also recorded 'Lost in the Shadows' for the soundtrack, along with a video which featured clips from the film. The theme song, 'Cry Little sister', was originally recorded by Gerard McMahon (under his pseudonym of Gerard McMann) for the soundtrack, and later re-released on his self-titled album 'G Tom Mac' in 2000. In the sequel of the film the theme song 'Cry Little Sister' was covered by a Seattle based rock band Aiden.

01 - Good Times by INXS and Jimmy Barnes
02 - Lost in the Shadows (The Lost Boys) by Lou Gramm
03 - Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me by Roger Daltrey
04 - Laying Down the Law by INXS and Jimmy Barnes
05 - People Are Strange by Echo & the Bunnymen
06 - Cry Little Sister (Theme from The Lost Boys) by Gerard McMann
07 - Power Play by Eddie & the Tide
08 - I Still Believe by Tim Cappello
09 - Beauty Has Her Way by Mummy Calls
10 - To the Shock of Miss Louise by Thomas Newman

Have to say that I just loved the film and the music was just great. I love vampire movies and books so this film fitted in well and worked well. The music was dark but I loved it. Still one of my favs today.
