V/A, Moonlighting [The Television Soundtrack Album] (1987)
Moonlighting – it was a big deal, appointment viewing. I was never quite sure why though – but Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd, and here on the soundtrack album they both get to sing. Wait! There’s some great stuff here too. I love Al Jarreau and his theme song for the show kicks things off then there’s some good old soul and R’n’B and rock’n’roll including songs from Chubby Checker and The Isley Brothers. And there’s also Percy Sledge and Bob James and Billie Holiday and…and, I lost you back when I said Moonlighting right? This is the sort of thing where I’m probably supposed to say that I held onto this since my childhood. But I bought it last week. Dirt-cheap, sure. But it’s actually pretty good. Lots of great songs. And then some from Cybill Shepherd and Bruce Willis too.
Sample Track: Good Lovin’ (Bruce Willis)
