Just One of the Guys - Full Soundtrack

Here is the long out-of-print soundtrack to the 80s teen comedy Just one of the Guys. This has all the tunes fans of the film remember from the flick and is a very enjoyable listen if you like the flick. Personally I would say it's one of my top 5 teen comedies of the 80s. I can't pinpoint exactly on why I feel this way, but I would imagine it's a mix of the strange story, likeable characters and some good ol' fashioned pop music. I remember watching this numerous times on HBO back in the day and it never got old. Even now I love watching it, over and over.

Years back it finally hit DVD, which was nice for the fans to get a nice copy of it on a format compatible with the 21st century. It was actually on this DVD release that I realized there are three characters in the flick that independently appeared in various X-Files episodes, which was kind of cool to me too.

Troll - Full Soundtrack
Composed by Richard Band

Today I have the soundtrack/score to the 80s fantasy/horror film "Troll" by Richard Band. The precursor to the more talked about "Troll 2". Although this movie has nothing in my opinion as far as connection to the sequel, beyond the fact that there are trolls. Then again Troll 2 is about goblins, anyway, let me get back to this discussion.

It's been many moons since I've seen this flick, but I recall it being a campy fun little movie. The music always stood out to me when I was young. When I was a little kid I would hold my tape recorder up to the TV to record various bits of music that I liked in movies. Sort of a DIY hobo soundtrack compilation kind of thing. Troll's music was among the hobo compilation that I really loved listening to. Check out the track "Cantos Profanae" it's really spectacular stuff! If you are a fan of this flick check out the score right away.
