One of the first films to use pop songs in place of traditional film scoring, George Lucas's American Graffiti saturated its soundtrack with vintage hits from the late '50s and early '60s.The soundtrack artists' roster reads like a rock and roll "Who's Who?" Tracks by Bill Haley, Del Shannon, Buddy Holly, The Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, The Platters, Fats Domino, and The Del-Vikings, and a host of others are linked by atmospheric narration from the mythic d.j. Wolfman Jack. Although the songs and the film's images have become indelibly linked, the American Graffiti soundtrack works just as well as an independent collection of the period's finest pop music. Just don't be surprised if you feel compelled to head down to the local Sock Hop and grab a soda after listening to it.
