    Anyone know if there is an easy way to get some of these songs on one cd? They aren't on the soundtrack unfortunately. This is some really great music I missed out on when it was popular (too young, 6th grade maybe?), but I really enjoy it now that I am older. If I have to buy separate releases for these tracks, can someone recommend what are the CD's to look for from each artist? Thanks in advance!

    01. "The Killing Moon" - Echo & The Bunnymen
    02. "Head over Heels" - Tears For Fears
    03. "Notorious" - Duran Duran
    04. "Proud To Be Loud" - The Dead Green Mummies
    05. "Love Will Tear Us Apart" - Joy Division
    06. "Under the Milky Way" - The Church
    07. "Mad World" - Gary Jules

    I have two version of "Mad World" by Gary Jules, one with percussion and one without. I prefer the one without, the percussion is a bit distracting


    FWIW it was originally done by Tears for Fears, althout thier version can't evoke tears the way Gary Jules can.




    if you cant find those songs on a CD, you might as well DL Kazaa Lite, download them, and then unistall Kazaa. Desperate times call for Desperate measures

    /me glances at 14gb download folder

    ...i swear i'm not addicted

    that is definitely one awesome soundtrack. if you're gonna buy the artist's cds, then i think best-of's are in order.

    btw - i have all the cd's i'm listing below.

    echo: "ballyhoo, the best of echo & the bunneymen". i bought this as an import, but i think it's now available locally. sorry, but i couldn't find a link. it is *significantly* better than "songs to learn and sing"

    tff: "shout: the very best of tears for fears

    duran: "greatest"

    joy division: "permanent"

    the church: "under the milky way - the best of"

    80's rule! [​IMG]

    [edit] go to www.bunnymen.com. they have a link where you can sample 30-second snippets from "ballyhoo".

    Ted,

    I found that Echo "Ballyhoo" cd at both Amazon and Circuit City, but both list it as an import, and it's about $33. Ouch![​IMG] But I checked the tracklisting against the other you mentioned, and it does seem a more complete album. Has more tracks anyway. There are a few places through the Amazon marketplace that sell it for $15, but I haven't ever used that. Do you have any experience with that?
