If you remember the music of the 80s fondly, you’re probably going to love these soundtrack albums because they’re made up of 1980s hits covered by newer artists.
Note that while this album only has an average review rating of 3.5/5 stars, those who are rating it low are doing so NOT because of the quality of the tracks included on the album, but because of tracks from the movie that weren’t included in the album.
In keeping with the Hawaiian setting of the film, this album has a reggae / island music feel. Tracks include Thompson Twins’ Hold Me Now covered by Wayne Wonder, The Cure’s Love Song covered by 311, The Cars’ Drive covered by Ziggy Marley, Roxy Music’s Slave to Love covered by Elan Atias, and The Police’s Every Breath You Take covered by UB40. 13 tracks in all.
Sky High (4/5 stars)
