Big hair. 80's rock. And puppy love. If you're my age, you remember what it was like growing up in the glory of the 80's and now, you can relive those memories with the brand new Rock of Ages Broadway musical soundtrack.
Rock of Ages, the Broadway musical, stars American Idol finalist Constantine Maroulis. Set in 1987 in a legendary Sunset Strip rock club, a small-town girl meets a big-city dreamer and they fall in love to the greatest metal songs of the 80's.
The soundtrack captures not only the songs you know and love from that era, as performed by the cast of Rock of Ages, but it also includes dialogue between the characters as well as a songbook for you to follow along with them.
Here is a complete list of the 22 songs included on the soundtrack:
Just Like Paradise / Nothin' But A Good Time
We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands
I Wanna Rock
We're Not Gonna Take It
Heaven/More Than Words / To Be With You
Waiting For A Girl Like You
Wanted Dead Or Alive
I Want To Know What Love Is
Cum On Feel The Noize / We're Not Gonna Take It (Reprise)
Harden My Heart / Shadows Of The Night
Here I Go Again

Every Rose Has Its Thorn

It's like having an awesome 80's mixtape, but with an interesting twist (the dialogue and story). Here's a glimpse of what went into the making of the Rock of Ages soundtrack:
I personally loved the album and now am dying to see the Broadway show (I really, really hope they start touring!).
