"Scarface (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)" by Various Artists on iTunes

10 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Back in that post-disco/pre-AIDS sweet spot in the early '80s, two crazes simultaneously swept America's cities: electronic music and recreational cocaine use. Directed by Brian De Palma, written by Oliver Stone, and starring Al Pacino, the 1983 film Scarface was the perfect movie for these times—a hyper-violent, rags-to-riches, love-it-or-hate-it landmark that continues to be sampled by wannabe kingpin rappers decades after the fact. With Giorgio Moroder's melodramatic synth-centric theme music and the Jazzercise-friendly dance songs courtesy of Elizabeth Daily (best known as Dottie from Pee Wee's Big Adventure) and Maria Conchita Alonso, the import-only soundtrack was also quite popular, despite not being officially released in the U.S. until 2003. This 2013 version looks exactly the same, but it features brand-new remixes of the tracks by producer Moroder. Some songs come off basically the same, while others sound completely different than the original mixes. Check out Debbie Harry's "Rush Rush" and the montage-music classic "Scarface (Push It to the Limit)" by Paul Engemann.

What a score!

shortbud2000,

What a film and what a score! Giorgio Moroder probably was one of the people who made this film so famous considering the year it came out. From Tony's theme to Rush Rush. This music is the perfect 80's score and I'm not just throwing it out to sound cool. I watched this film almost 100 times and I always love to hear that chilling score.

Amazing

Xaozx,

This album is one of the best soundtracks compilations ever made. Although I have to say it would be nicer if we didn't have to buy the entire ablbum at once.
