Paul McCartney – “Give My Regards to Broad Street: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”The Sleeve: The Gatefold: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  Okay, So maybe Paul McCartney is everyone’s favorite Beatle? After all Wings was amazing. Most of his solo work is too.

Joe Jackson – “Mike’s Murder: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”

Joe Jackson – “Mike’s Murder: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review:  To be fair, I’ve never heard of this movie. I had originally mistook Debra Winger for JoBeth Williams and decided to buy it, only to discover later it wasn’t JoBeth – anyways, the movie actually looks pretty good.  So, the album opens with the song “Cosmopolitan” and...

Debbie Harry – “Rush Rush (Special Extended Remix)”

Debbie Harry – “Rush Rush (Special Extended Remix)”The Sleeve: The Liner/Sleeve Notes: None. Personal Review: So basically, everyone knows this song from two places, the first and most primary being the soundtrack to the 1983 film, “Scarface” – the second, where I first (and most people my age) heard the song was the video game Grand Theft Auto III, which featured almost...

Francis Lai – “International Velvet: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”

Francis Lai – “International Velvet: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack”The Sleeve:   The Liner/Sleeve Notes: “Composers, like authors, are probably the most anonymous manipulators of public taste.
