iTunes Review

If you've ever pondered the origin of the expletive "Dammit Janet," this original soundtrack to the 1975 cult classic musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show takes the credit. Back in the mid-‘70s punk rock had just started to fuel the music underground, so a film (and accompanying soundtrack) this subversive was unarguably too far ahead of its time for the mainstream to take notice. But from the opening tongue-in-cheek number "Science Fiction / Double Feature," it's evident that the entire concept may have been tailored exclusively for the counterculture, though many fans hold New York City's Waverly Theatre responsible for catapulting the film into its cult status by showing weekend midnight screenings and encouraging audience participation. Two years before Meat Loaf hit with Bat Out Of Hell, he sang the ‘50s inspired "Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul" here. It's equally interesting to hear a young and then unknown Susan Sarandon sing the coquettish "Touch-A, Touch-A, Touch Me" and if listening to a young Tim Curry sing "Sweet Transvestite" doesn't induce laughter, you may want to have a doctor check your funny bone. The boogie friendly "Time Warp" yielded a minor hit on now defunct freeform radio formats, as it's easily the catchiest song here.

The REAL SONGS...straight from the movie. Fantastic. =)) ♡♡♡♡♡

I remember my first time seeing this at a live show for the first time (I've been twice). I was 13 or 14, and my parents took me. Many in the crowd recognised me as a first timer, and wrote a big "V" on my forehead ( for Virgin, of course!). It was a blast, and I still love the movie today. I'm thrilled to find an album with the original music. A must buy for any RHPS fan. ;)

great now add the movie

tim curry in fishnets= epic win add the movie!!!!!!!

Still crazy after all these years

Even Paul Simon would probably smile at his title being used to describe this one-of-a-kind, sci-fi/horror musical. Whether one has experienced the campy audience-participation experience of the eternal midnight movie classic or not, the soundtrack stands on its own, even without the acting talents of the soon-to-be-much-more-famous singers here. Some might claim Tim Curry's strut through "Sweet Transvestite", or Susan Sarandon's orgasmic "I want to be dirty!" (from "Touch-A, Touch-A, Touch Me") are among the greatest moments, singing or acting, of either artist's lengthy resume. The same is true for Barry Bostwick's contribution to the duet with Sarandon, "Dammit Janet". And if Meat Loaf is one of the few who recorded more noteworthy songs after this soundtrack, "Hot Patootie / Bless My Soul" remains worthy of inclusion on any truly representative anthology of his career. Tim Curry's central character tries his best to steal the show, both on-screen and in the studio, but there are so many others to credit, from Richard O'Brien, who concocted the haunting lyrics and melodies, to Little Nell, who was a few years too early to capitalize on the vocal style that later made a superstar of Cyndi Lauper. Yet despite such depth of talent, no single person in the entire talented ensemble ever shines too brightly for too long before rejoining their costars in this enduring group effort. Although especially suited for Hallowe'en (and that never-ending midnight ritual), "Rocky Horror Picture Show" has more than enough to engage listeners year-round.
