Pretty Woman Soundtrack

Updated on September 1, 2010

Whilst "Pretty Woman" is memorable for many things the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack is one of the most important, so much so that it is one of the most successful movie soundtracks to have been created. Of course the main song on the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack which everyone remembers is Roy Orbisons classic "Oh, Pretty Woman" which obviously was the inspiration to the movies title. Whilst "Oh, Pretty Woman" may be the main song which people remember the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack is litters with such delights as Natalie Cole singing "Wild Women Do", "King of Wishful Thinking" by Go West and Roxette's "It Must Have Been Love" which went onto top the charts as a single. There is of course the memorable version of Prince's "Kiss" which Julia Roberts sings in the bath, sadly that never made it on to the official "Pretty Woman" soundtrack.

What also didn't make it on to the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack was the music from the opera which Edward takes Vivian to watch. The opera is La Traviata which shares a similarity with the storyline to "Pretty Woman" and a remixed version of one of the operatic pieces is used in the closing scenes of the movie.

Interestingly Richard Gere wrote and played the piano piece in the scene where he leaves Vivian in the room to veg out watching old movies, but again this didn't make it on to the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack.

What did make it on to the "Pretty Woman" soundtrack is as follows:

1. "Wild Women Do" - Natalie Cole

2. "Fame '90" - David Bowie

3. "King of Wishful Thinking" - Go West

4. "Tangled - Jane Wiedlin"

5. "It Must Have Been Love" - Roxette

6. "Life in Detail" - Robert Palmer

7. "No Explanation" - Peter Cetera

8. "Real Wild Child (Wild One)" - Christopher Otcasek

9. "Fallen" - Lauren Wood

10. "Oh, Pretty Woman" - Roy Orbison

11. "Show Me Your Soul" - Red Hot Chili Peppers
