Dirty Dancing Soundtrack

Updated on September 22, 2012

The Soundtrack From Dirty Dancing, Featuring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze

Dirty Dancing is probably one of the most popular romance films of our time.

It has also earned numerous awards for its soundtrack and also spawned the making of Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights with the same exact plot but in a different setting.

Not surprisingly, many of the songs from the original movie are still popular even to this day. Although most of what you see in this movie is pretty much predictable and expected, a lot of people who have seen the show voted it one of the best movies of all time and some of them even paid for a second time to watch it!

At the time of its released, it was by far one of the most successful films ever made even with such a low budget. It is funny that as a result of the movie, it has increased dancing class enrolments throughout the country. Some of the movie quotes like "Nobody puts Baby in a corner" has become adopted in popular culture today. One of the most famous quotes from the movie,I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I'm with you." is one of the most romantic quotes of all time from a movie.

The whole movie revolves around two people, Frances "Baby" Houseman and Johnny Castle. It basically tells the story of how this two characters developed a romantic relationship with each other following the Frances's encounter with Johnny during a summer vacation. Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey took up these two roles respectively.

Even by today's standards, Dirty Dancing is a big hit and has earned millions of dollars to this day since 1987 when the film was made. There are plans to remake the film in future which is scheduled to be released at the earliest in 2014. But will it be as successful as the original??

      This is one of my Top 10 movies of all time. Patrick should still be with us. But at least this masterpiece has been frozen in time for us to enjoy forever.

      I actually don't care that much for the movie, but I LOVE the song "Time of My Life". I was a toddler when that song first came out. But I loved hearing it on the radio. I have it on my iPod now... :)
