    This movie was just on VH1 and I must say, the music behind it is incredible. I hadn't seen it for awhile but you really appreciate Eddie as a Rock N Roll musician. Some of the little compositions are pure Rock. I wish I could find the soundtrack to this movie. I probably have to search in some hole-in-the-wall record store to find it.

    The thing is, there's actually only one Edward/Donn Landee composition on the album.

    I have it, but don't have a record player anymore.

    You might be able to find "Donut City" as an mp3 somewhere.

    Good luck

    I have the soundtrack on cassette. Here's the tracklist...

    "Donut City" - Edward Van Halen
    "Metal of the Night" - Hanover Fist
    "It's Not Easy" - Charlie Sexton w/ Ron Wood
    "Human Shout" - Andy Summers
    "Wild Life" - Bananarama
    "Mind My Have Still I" - What Is This
    "Make It Glamorous" - Van Stephenson
    "Who's Gonna Break the Ice" - Peter Case
    "I Go Wild" - The Three O'Clock
    "No Trespassing" - Louise Goffin w/ Charlotte Caffey

    Before buying it I thought that the whole album was going to consist of the instrumentals that Eddie did throughout the movie.

    Too bad Dognut City sounds like Loverboy's "Turn You Loose,"(sorry I even noticed that), the soundtrack looks like utter crap(wasn't the army kid jammin' Hendrix in the flick or is that another movie), and too bad Ed ended up wastin' a lot of those cool riff, ideas, etc. on Van Hagar...

    Yep. There's also pieces of Good Enough, A.F.U., Feels So Good, and Dave's 1984 Tour Tai Chi dance music in the film.

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    I have this soundtrack too. "Donut City" is OK. I have the album on vinyl, I don't think it was ever released on CD...
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth
