Fritz says “The ones that are inspired by are two that are sung in the film (Neal sings “Three Coins In A Fountain” on the bus and Neal and Del both sing “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” when they get pulled over by Mike McKean) and I could not, for the life of me, find “Everytime You Go Away” by Blue Room, so I added the version by Paul Young instead (because the Blue Room version soundS virtually identical).”

Planes, Trains and Automobiles OST (1987)
Planes, Trains and Automobiles OST

MP3 / various bitrates

Released; 1987

Genre; Rock and Roll / Country / Pop

Length; 34:32

Label; MCA

Six bucks and my right nut says we’re not landing in Chicago.

There seems to have been two separate soundtracks released for this movie;

  • the “songs only” soundtrack (i.e. this one!) and
  • the Ira Newborn score / soundtrack (which we’ve posted HERE! )

OK. Let’s come out and say that the reason we dug out this OST was, of course, the rather strange fact that our favourite Irish band ever, THE STARS OF HEAVEN, although as obscure to the music masses as a braincell in GW Bush’s skull, appear on the soundtrack to this big-budget Hollywood film!

How the fuck did that happen, you may well ask! I haven’t a fucking clue, but I’m glad it did!

I’ve written about THE STARS OF HEAVEN – a band decades ahead of their time and who pioneered the alt-country genre – in the most glowing manner a few times before and posted some of their MAGNIFICENT albums. Check em out Here!

Here, the boys do a good cover of “Wheels”, a song by one of their heroes, Gram Parsons.

I guess this is probably a good time as any to tell you this. Our tickets are only good to St. Louis. St. Louis to Chi-town is booked tighter than Tom Thumb’s ass.
Aside from the Stars, the OST is very eclectic and has some other wonderful moments with renowned great artists such as Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris, as well as cult bands such as The Dream Academy.

A couple of tracks though could have been better chosen especially the dire Silicon Teens! soundtrack features a mix of rock and roll, country and pop. The frenetic musical score by Ira Newborn, makes extensive use of the folk song Red River Valley, including a souped up version of the song, Red River Rock, performed by British group Silicon Teens.

Among other tracks is a cover version of “Back in Baby’s Arms”, used during the scene when Steve Martin’s and John Candy’s characters wake up embracing each other in the morning. The song, popularized by Patsy Cline, is performed by Emmylou Harris.

The soundtrack album was released in 1987, but has since gone out of print.

Her first baby came out sideways. She didn’t scream or nothin.

Songs featured in the film but not included on the soundtrack album include “(Meet) The Flintstones” (sung on the bus) and “Three Coins in the Fountain” (which Steve Martin’s character tries to sing on the bus) and “Mess Around” by Ray Charles, the song John Candy’s character is listening to when he plays “air instruments” while driving; swerving and puffing cigarettes, while Steve Martin’s character sleeps.

An additional track by Steve Earle, “Continental Trailways Blues”, was composed for the film, but was not included on the soundtrack album. The song is included on the 1996 compilation, Ain’t Ever Satisfied: The Steve Earle Collection. Not included in the soundtrack is the song Everytime You Go Away performed by Blue Room at the end of the film.

Neal: Del, why did you kiss my ear?

Del: Why are you holding my hand?

Neal: Where’s your other hand?

Del: Between two pillows …

Neal: Those aren’t pillows!

The movie itself is excellent too, replete with loads of classic comic moments. Far better than one would expect from writer / director John Hughes – who here avoids sappy sentimentality and teenagers in favour of a adult oriented intelligent comedy ! – and star Steve Martin, who believe it or not, was still funny then! There’s the classic scene where Martin unleashes a tirade, littered with ‘fucks” at a car rental agent … You can start by wiping that fucking dumb-ass smile off your rosey, fucking, cheeks … etc!

Of course, we always liked the comic acting of the late great John Candy.

We’ve posted a DVD rip of the movie too … grab it HERE!
