EDITORS’ NOTES

Without the music, Dirty Dancing might have been just another ‘80s rom-dram, but the mix of soft-lit original songs and irresistible ‘60s pop resulted in cinematic magic. The hits—a Jennifer Warnes/Bill Medley duet (“I’ve Had the Time of My Life”), Eric Carmen’s gravelly serenade “Hungry Eyes,” and Patrick Swayze’s “She’s Like the Wind”—bring us back to the film’s 1987 release. But the soundtrack’s classics take us back further—to a steamy summer at Kellerman’s resort, where Baby and Johnny groove to a dizzying cocktail of cross-generational nostalgia.

Disappointed customer

I think it's ridiculous that you have to purchase the entire album to get Be My Baby - - what a scam!!!!

Not Fair

All I want from this album is "Be My Baby" by The Ronettes. I know a lot of people like me think it's unfair to have to by the whole album to get it.

NOBODY puts baby in the corner

What a move for 80's lovers!! The songs are great, but you have to see the movie to get the full effect. It creates an amazing sensation... if you've seen step up, you could consider that (kind of) the modern version of Dirty Dancing. It just makes you want to go out and learn to dance like that!
