On this day in music history: July 21, 1987 - “Who’s That Girl - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” is released. Produced by Patrick Leonard, Madonna, Stephen Bray, Jay King, Denzil Foster, Thomas McElroy, David Agent, Stock Aitken & Waterman, David Gamson, John Potoker and Hubert Eaves III, it is recorded in Various Studios from December 1986 - March 1987. The album serves as the soundtrack to Madonna’s third film (originally titled “Slammer”), featuring four new songs by her as well as tracks by Club Nouveau, Scritti Politti, Coati Mundi, Michael Davidson, and Duncan Faure. Though the film is universally panned by critics and flops at the box office, the soundtrack album performs well, spinning off the singles “Causing A Commotion” (#2 Pop) and the chart topping title track. “Who’s That Girl - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack” peaks at number seven on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

The Road to El Dorado Soundtrack - Part ½

I didn’t put the songs in order of how they are on the soundtrack because I prefer the movie ones in the order they come in the film. Also, the “Someday Out of the Blue” picture is not very good quality because it’s a screenshot of a YouTube video and I can’t get on my laptop right now to take a better one.

On this day in music history: June 30, 1986 - “True Blue”, the third album by Madonna is released. Produced by Madonna, Patrick Leonard and Stephen Bray, it is recorded at Channel Recording in Los Angeles, CA from December 1985 - April 1986. After the massive whirlwind success of the “Like A Virgin” album and “The Virgin Tour”, the pop superstar does not rest on her laurels, beginning work on the crucial follow up at the end of 1985. Working with long time collaborator Stephen Bray and new producer Patrick Leonard (Michael Jackson, Jody Watley), the album is praised upon its release as her strongest effort to date, and is widely regarded today as one of the best albums of her career. It spins off five top five hits including “Live To Tell” (#1 Pop), “Papa Don’t Preach” (#1 Pop), “Open Your Heart” (#1 Pop) and the title track (#3 Pop). “True Blue” also marks the beginning Madonna’s long association with famed fashion photographer Herb Ritts who shoots the LP’s iconic cover photo. The original LP package also includes a poster of the album cover shot. As a promotion for the album, MTV sponsors the “Make My Video” contest, inviting viewers to submit their own visual interpretations of the title track. The winning entry comes from Angel Gracia and Cliff Guest, whose black & white clip is rotated heavily on the video channel. The pair are awarded a check for $25,000 by the pop superstar herself at MTV’s New York studios. The alternate video directed by James Foley, featuring Madonna with close friends actress Debi Mazur and fashion designer Erika Belle is shown largely outside the US. Madonna also supports the album with the worldwide “Who’s That Girl Tour” beginning in June of 1987. It is remastered and reissued on CD in 2001, with the extended 12" mixes of “La Isla Bonita” and the title track included as bonus tracks. The vinyl LP is reissued in Europe in 2012, including the original inner sleeve lyric sheet and poster featured in the original release. “True Blue” spends five weeks at number one on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 7x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

Roger Waters - Lost Boys Calling (Original Demo) Flickering Flame

In the spring of 1999, Roger Waters broke his seven-year recording hiatus, with the release of a song on the soundtrack to “La Leggenda del Pianista Sull'Oceano,” an Italian film from director Giuseppe Tornatore.
The soundtrack contains a single song from Waters: “Lost Boys Calling” was composed by Ennio Morricone, who composed, arranged and conducted the entire score. Lyrics on the track were written by Waters, who also provides the vocals. Guitar solos on the song are courtesy of Eddie Van Halen; the liner notes credit “Edward” Van Halen, whoever that is. The track was produced by Patrick Leonard, who worked with Waters on “Radio K.A.O.S.” (1987) and Pink Floyd’s “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” (1987).
