Somehow, I never fully appreciated the work of Wim Wenders as a film maker, but you have to admit that his musical tastes are very good.
Take this soundtrack. Here you have the cream of the pop and rock scenes from the 1980s trying to catch the mood of the Apocalypse, as the title of the movie suggests.
My favorite ones are Julee Cruise, accompanied by fellow musicians David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti, giving a Twin Peaks treatment to an Elvis song, Crime and The City Solution and Nick cave who sound more tragic than ever, rock legend Patti Smith whose poetry is underlined by a minimal but haunting background and, last but not least, the hypnotizing voice of Jane Sibery putting light in the obscurity of this album.
Furthemore, most of the tracks are exclusive to this release.
