The Eurythmics track This City Never Sleeps gets a Valentines Day release on red vinyl for the 30th anniversary of 9½ Weeks
Who wouldn’t like to add some new coloured vinyl to their collection? Well treat yourself this Valentines Day to a special limited edition (1500) reissue of the 9½ weeks Soundtrack from Music On Vinyl featuring the track The City Never Sleeps.
Every Valentine’s Day video stores and online rental outlets are swamped with requests for the film this soundtrack represents. It stars young Kim Basinger as a New York City art gallery employee who has a brief yet intense affair with a mysterious Wall Street broker, acted by Mickey Rourke.
Considered too explicit by its American distributor and was cut for U.S. release, even then the film was a box office bomb in the U.S. However it became a huge success internationally in its unedited version, particularly in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. It has acquired a large fan base on video and DVD and developed a cult following.
The main single released from the 9½ Weeks: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was “I Do What I Do”, performed by Duran Duran bass guitarist John Taylor. It gave stage for his first solo singing performance during a hiatus in Duran Duran’s career. The song reached #23 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #42 on the U.K. Singles Chart.
The soundtrack also included tracks from Luba, Bryan Ferry, Dalbello, Corey Hart, Joe Cocker, Devo, Eurythmics and Stewart Copeland, whereas the music has been a great influence on the cinematic of certain scenes in the film.
