I recently downloaded You've Lost That Loving Feeling for the iPod and listening to it in its full version brought back many memories from the Top Gun years. They say that nostalgia truly sets in when you hit 30 but I can assure you that it must be catching up with me at double the speed. I remember I was given the Top Gun CD as a present when I was a kid and even more sharply so I remember asking myself why ON EARTH what I felt was THE song of the movie was not on it. So for me the omission of this song from the soundtrack is the Greatest Soundtrack Crime ever. Have you got one you would like to share? A song that perhaps you badly wished were included in a soundtrack while it wasn't or vice-versa?

I'd defiantly associate that song with that movie, seems silly to keep it off the album.

There reasoning is probably because they didn't play the actual song in the movie. Just singing part of the song doesn't require paramount to pay royalties, so they figure why pay more royalties when they don't have to

The actual song is played in the movie... towards the end from the juke box...

Forgot about the part there but as it turns out its a moot point because the song is on the soundtrack

The greatest soundtrack crime *ever* is the fact that John Hughes never released a soundtrack album to the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Director John Hughes refused to release a soundtrack album for FBDO because he thought the eclectic collection of songs in the movie would not work together.

If they were ever compiled in an album, it would include:

Love Missile F1-11 (Extended Version) by Sigue Sigue Sputnik
Jeannie (Theme From I Dream of Jeannie)
Beat City by The Flowerpot Men
Star Wars (Main Title) by John Williams
Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want (Instrumental) by The Dream Academy
Danke Schoen by Wayne Newton
Twist and Shout by The Beatles
Radio People by Zapp
I'm Afraid by Blue Room
Taking The Day Off by General Public
The Edge Of Forever by The Dream Academy
March Of the Swivelheads by The (English) Beat
Oh Yeah by Yello
BAD by Big Audio Dynamite
I have most of these songs already, but a complete album--man, that would have kicked booty.

I have most of these songs around here somewhere, but a complete album--that would have kicked booty.
I would have to agree. No soundtrack for Ferris is a much bigger crime. :black:

Yes, the song is played at the end of the movie until the end credits run. But it ain't on my version of the soundtrack!

Speaking of Tom Cruise...

I loved the movie "Vanilla Sky" and before I went Amazon, I went
from store to store to find the soundtrack. Then when I finally do
find the soundtrack, it didn't have that song "One of Us" by Joan
Osbourne (to be exact, the scene where Tom gets surgery from
some German Doctor and comments him on his singing)

Thank Goodness it had the R.E.M. song though.
