Back in May, a preview clip featured the Cars' "Moving in Stereo," which appears on the soundtrack. Other songs on the album include.a remix of the Who's "Baba O'Riley," Foreigner's "Cold as Ice" and John Mellencamp's "R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A."
The '80s-set program also includes hits by Huey Lewis & the News (Workin' for a Livin'"), REO Speedwagon ("Can't Fight This Feeling"), Madonna ("Material Girl") and the Pointer Sisters ("Neutron Dance") made during that decade. The only new recording is "Never Ending Story" by actors Gaten Matarazzo and Gabriella Pizzolo. You can check out the track listing below.
"It's 1985 in Hawkins, Ind., and summer's heating up," explains the soundtrack's press release. "School's out, there's a brand new mall in town and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group's dynamic, and they'll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town's threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they'll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear."
