iTunes Review

Many credit the soundtrack for 1982’s Fast Times At Ridgemont High to be the first great rock ‘n’ roll-based soundtrack of the ‘80s (on par with Heavy Metal at least) with contributions by Sammy Hagar, Stevie Nicks and Don Felder. Fast Times leans harder on pop — most notably with its infectious opening hit single “Somebody’s Baby” by Jackson Browne. Paying tribute to the iconic checkerboard, waffle-treaded, slip-on Vans shoes gracing the cover (and the feet of Sean Penn’s character Jeff Spicoli), Joe Walsh follows with the slick boogie of “Waffle Stomp” before Ravyns “Raised On Radio” provides a nugget that’s equal parts classic-rock and power-pop. Although the Go-Go’s “We Got the Beat” is curiously absent (it punctuated the teen scene at Ridgemont Mall), their Farfisa organ-laden “Speeding” turns up before Jimmy Buffett’s “I Don’t Know (Spicoli’s Theme)” cooks up some tasty rock. Hagar recalls his Heavy Metal title-track with a similarly heavy “Fast Times At Ridgemont High.”

Customer Reviews


I've been trying to find a single of "Sleeping Angel" for ages. Why why WHY does iTunes do this with soundtracks? I don't want to buy the entire album, and they're losing my 99 cents by making songs unavailable individually. Please wise up and quit doing this - it seems to defeat the entire purpose of iTunes.

Fast Times at Ridgemont High

Great music from that era. But since I only wanted a few tunes from this album & itunes will only sell it as an album, I decided not to buy it. Why buy music I'll never listen to? I wish itunes would stop doing this to their customers.

Why no "Cars"?

How could you not include "Moving in Stereo"?
