The Neverending Story (1984) (Request by Joseph)

The Neverending Story (original German title Die Unendliche Geschichte) is the 1984 film adaptation of the German fantasy novel by Michael Ende. The Germany-US co-production was directed by Wolfgang Petersen and starred Barret Oliver as Bastian Balthazar Bux (named only "Bastian Bux" in the movie), Noah Hathaway as Atreyu, and Tami Stronach as The Childlike Empress. This film adaptation only covered the first half of the book. The majority of the movie was filmed in Germany, except for Barret Oliver's scenes, which were shot in Canada. It was Germany's highest budgeted film of the time. The novel's author, Michael Ende, felt that this adaptation's content deviated so far from his book that he requested they either halt production or change the name; when they did neither, he sued them and subsequently lost the case.[1] He did succeed in having his name removed from the opening credits, although his name does appear in the closing. Music for the movie was composed by Klaus Doldinger of the German jazz group Passport. The theme song to the American version of the film was composed by Giorgio Moroder with lyrics by Keith Forsey, and performed by Limahl, the fired lead singer of Kajagoogoo. This song, along with other "techno-pop" treatments to the soundtrack are not present in the German version of the film, which features Doldinger's score exclusively.

great blog you have here. I like that you're specializing on 80s ost's - just great!

While we're at Moroder, could you post the soundtrack for "D.C.Cab" from 1983? I would love that!

Very cool blog idea.

Any chance you have The Idolmaker soundtrack? I had it on vinyl, but as far as I've been able to tell it was never on DVD.
It's on my top 10 list of albums to try to replace.

Thanks for what you're doing. I kow how thrilled I was a year ago when someone posted the Streets of Fire soundtrack on a site. - Mindy

Great post! Thank you so much! I've been offline for a few weeks, busy with school and all, when all of a sudden I check your site and find this pretty little gem! Thank you so much for sharing this. I've been longing to hear this soundtrack for quite some time. Truly a precious soundtrack full of surprises.
