Soundtrack - More Dirty Dancing (1988)

“More Dirty Dancing” (full title: More Dirty Dancing: More Original Music from the Hit Motion Picture) is a 1988 follow-up album released after the huge commercial success of the 1987 motion picture “Dirty Dancing” and 1987 its soundtrack.

 Unless you're from Brain(less)tree,'ll probably like most of the tunes on this package, the ones with real feeling. For one who was there when these songs were originally popular, I can tell you they evoke real memories of the time.

They catch the early 60s' mindset. Forty years after "Cry to Me", Solomon Burke was still recording and making appearances. Why they left this song out on the initial album is beyond me.

It played as Johnny and Baby first made love, a significant turn in the movie. "Some Kind of Wonderful" (not to be confused with a song by Grank Funk Railroad of the same name) was popular a couple of years before the movie's timeframe. "Wipeout" was a new song that summer, liked by all the teens. "Do you Love Me?" was a recent hit and upon its use in the movie inspired the aging Contours to go on tour again. If they had included "Hey, Baby" from 1962 (with Texas bluesman Delbert McClinton on the background blues harp)and the song apparently written for the movie and done by Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers and Jennifer Warnes, the other songs could have been done away with.
