v/a - pump up the volume: the complete soundtrack

label: mca records
released: 1990

this isn't the commercially available version of the soundtrack.

a few years back someone had went and combined the movie's score and every song played during the movie and released it.

maybe this could be called: the bigger than a baby's arm version.

don't act as if you haven't seen this movie more than a dozen times.
you were just looking for some stamps,right?
also: christian slater's hair.

there's been a time in your life where you wanted to have your very own radio station that you'd run out a small room in your parent's basement.
admit it.
but you weren't able to because it was being used for something else and the door was always locked.
and there's 3 locks on that door.
and they didn't let you go into the basement after that one time....

but i digress....

there's been a point in everyone's life where they wanted to have their own radio station so they could show off their kick-ass taste in music.
because you know chicks really dig it when you rant on and on and on about that single from that band that was only released in iceland and that after they split up members of that band went on and started this band and this band and their bassist now plays in this band....

Thanks for this

(And for reminding me that I did want to have my very own radio station that I'd run out a small room in my parent's basement)
