Footloose

The soundtrack to 1984’s “dance against the man” teen hit Footloose stayed at the number one spot on the Billboard album charts for over two months, spewing out a handful of Top Ten singles that still make the rounds today. When director Craig Brewer announced his impending 2011 remake of the film, fans were curious as to what would become of the music that was so integral to the original, and his answer was "I can promise Footloose fans that I will be true to the spirit of the original film.” Brewer came through on that promise, allowing all of the hits, along with some new cuts, from the original a place in his version of the film, but with one caveat: they're “countrified.” ~ James Christopher Monger
