Labyrinth (Soundtrack)

Labyrinth by Trevor Jones
Released: Jun 1986
Label: Parlophone UK
David Bowie was cast in a fantasy musical, made up to look like a mix of Fu Manchu and Andy Warhol and then asked to write some songs for the movie. The film failed at the box office but gained a cult following over the years, helped along by its imaginative look and a cast that includes Muppets, Bowie and the impossibly beautifully Jennifer Connelly. Trevor Jones' respectable score is a very 1980s mix of orchestral synths and stinging guitar licks, but there are a few Bowie tunes here for hardened fans (the best of which is the concluding "Underground").
