TVD's Daily Wax | "Valley Girl" Soundtrack

That's right - not expecting to exceed any bandwidth today, yet when "Million Miles Away" gets played for the zillionth time - I'm STILL nodding my head right along.

Friday night I'd just got back/I had my eyes shut/Was dreaming about the past/I thought about you while the radio played/I should have got moving/For some reason I stayed/I started drifting to a different place/I realized I was falling off the face of your world/And there was nothing left to bring me back/I'm a million miles away/A million miles away/A million miles away/And there's nothing left to bring me back today/I took a ride, I went downtown/Streets were empty/There was no one around/All the faces that we used to know/Gone from the places that we used to go/I'm at the wrong end of the looking glass/Trying to hold on to the hands of the past and you/And there's nothing left to bring me back/I'm a million miles away/A million miles away/A million miles away/And there's nothing left to bring me back today......

Whee! What a great soundtrack.
It might have hit me at just the right time of my teen-aged years, but I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for that movie.
I don't need to DL any of these, though... I've got the soundtrack myself. Thanks for reminding me to dig it out, though. I La-la-la love it.

It's a toss-up for me between A Million Miles Away and Oldest Story in the World for best Plimsouls song.

A toss-up for me as well...might lean toward "Miles" tho'...

But that's classic Sparks, there. Angst and Kimono My House were their best moments, in my humble...

This is by far one of these BEST sound tracks of all time. Let’s not forget about the other sound track that was released with even more songs like Pocket Pool by Killer Pussy or Eaten By The Monster Of Love by the Sparks. It’s like totally tripendicular.

Christ, I haven't heard Pocket Pool since the old days of watching Night Flight/New Wave Theater on USA network..... egad, that was the greatest thing on television.
