Director Jonathan Demme’s 1986 comedy “Something Wild”, starring Melanie Griffith and Jeff Daniels, apparently has somewhat of a cult following. Given his great appreciation for music, Demme has a reputation for carefully focusing on the soundtracks to his films. Unfortunately, MCA was probably disinterested in spending money to license more of the 40+ songs which feature in “Something Wild”; consequently, the official soundtrack release offers only ten selections, albeit good ones.
The unique 3:28 edit of “Temptation” will be of particular interest to New Order collectors (on a related note, Demme directed the music video for “The Perfect Kiss”).
