Description

The motion picture soundtrack album for Fame was released in the U.S. on May 16, 1980, by RSO Records. It features nine songs, all of which appear in various scenes in the film. In his later review for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album five stars out of five and wrote, “Yes, the production techniques often do sound dated … but the music by Michael Gore is dynamic, varied, and alive, sung with real passion and vigor, and it still retains its essential spark 23 years after it was a pop culture phenomenon.” The music by Michael Gore is dynamic, varied, and alive, sung with real passion and vigor, and it still retains its essential spark 23 years after it was a pop culture phenomenon. Sure, it’s glitzy and glossy, sounding like show tunes, but that’s the tradition of this music, and it was done better than most Broadway tunes and movie soundtracks of the ’80s. Years later, this still has the spark and vitality of kids trying to make their big break, no matter the kind of music they’re singing, and that’s one of the main reasons (along with Gore‘s fine compositions) Fame retains its power and entertainment value years later.
