Sit Back, Relax, Watch A Movie - The Beatmeister's 80s Movie Soundtrack and Contemporary Rock Mix

Had a stormy weekend (literally) last Saturday and early Sunday morning as we were battered by this freakin' weather disturbance named "Frank" (international codename: Fengshen). We really felt his strength around 3-5 am, dawn of Sunday, with howling winds banging our windows and nonstop rains after.

So because of this, my wife and I decided to just stay home the rest of the day instead of our daily weekend routine of an early morning run, hear mass afterwards and then drop by my in-law's.

Luckily, we were in for a treat as we were able to catch some classic 80s movies from Cinemax and HBO namely, "Just One of The Guys," (the actors were not familiar to me, but the fashion was cool with an okay storyline) and the 1980s film, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" starring that 80s hottie, Phoebe Cates with Sean Pean, Judge Reinhold and Jennifer Jason Leigh (Single White Female).

All in all, I had a fun and relaxing weekend even with the storm, as I was able to spend some quality time with my wifey, which we're not able to do much because of our very busy skeds. :)

Anyways, in line with this, am uploading a collection of the greatest soundtracks from some of the greatest films from the past two decades. Also in the mix are some contemporary 80s rock tunes, which could also fit very well into a movie soundtrack.

1) Intro - Excerpts from the cult 80s classic "Back To The Future"
2) King Of Wishful Thinking (Jon Gas US 12" Mix) - Go West - from "Pretty Woman"
3) St. Elmo's Fire Theme (Ultrasound Long Version) - John Parr - from "St. Elmo's Fire"
4) Valerie (Ultrasound Extended Version) - Steve Winwood - sounds like an 80s summer tune
5) Power Of Love (The Beatmeister's Remix) - Huey Lewis & The News - from "Back To The Future"
6) Hungry Eyes (Hungry For More Ultrasound Remix) - Eric Carmen - from "Dirty Dancing"
7) Missing You (Extended 12" Mix) - John Waite - please tell me if this was used as a soundtrack of an 80s movie coz I have no idea

8) C'est La Vie (Extended Mix) - Robbie Nevil
9) Every Breath You Take (The Beatmeister's Remix) - The Police - 80s classic track
10) Who's Johnny (Extended Remix) - El DeBarge - from "Short Circuit"
11) Union Of The Snake (Ultrasound Snake Remix) - Duran Duran - another 80s classic
12) Let's Dance (Original 12" Extended Version) - David Bowie - put on your red shoes and dance the blues...

13) Don't You (Forget About Me) (12" Extended Version) - Simple Minds - from "The Breakfast Club"

14) Save A Prayer (DMC Mix) - Duran Duran
15) Outro - Excerpt from "Short Circuit"

Enjoy and please leave some comments if you loved this mix! Would appreciate it much. :)
