iTunes Editors’ Notes

When you think of all the catchy tunes that peppered the original soundtrack to 1984’s Footloose, it makes sense for the film’s 2011 remake to include some awesome upgrades. Seeing that the plot still takes place in the badlands of a small town, it makes even more sense to pump these songs through a well-oiled country-pop filter. Blake Shelton stands in for Kenny Loggins on the opening title track, not straying too far from the original blueprint; of course this rendition sounds more Nashville than Santa Barbara. Conversely, country newcomer Ella Mae Bowen kisses new life into Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero”; her version strips away synthesizers and drum machines for a more organic backbone of traditional wooden instruments, slowed tempos, and layers upon layers of gorgeous vocal melodies. It sounds like most of the Nashville gloss was saved for Jana Kramer’s country-pop remake of Deniece Williams’ “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.” Victoria Justice and Hunter Hayes keep “Almost Paradise” sounding as steamy as Mike Reno and Ann Wilson’s original.

Customer Reviews

Knock out version

Ella Mae Bowen does a knock out version of "holding out for a hero" in this movie sound track. Her guitar is sharp and crisp in contrast to her lush voice timber.... It's sad and sweet, sharp and soft , the ideal balance of the yin/ yang. You only hear a few lines in the film, but it's unforgettable.

Awesome x 1,000

The best movie I ever saw it is not waste of $. Footloose and Fake I.D are the best songs ever

Horrible!

Horrible horrible horrible! Buy the original soundtrack instead. This countrified knockoff sounds like a bad joke!
