Footloose: Original Soundtrack of the Paramount Motion Picture is the original soundtrack of the Paramount motion picture Footloose. The original nine-track album was released in 1984 and reached number one on the US Billboard 200 chart on April 21, 1984, where it stayed until June 23, 1984. When it was re-released in 1998, four bonus tracks were added to the album, all of which were used in the film as well. In 2002, Sony International released the “Australian Souvenir Edition”, also titled “Australian Cast Special Edition”. Two megamixes were added to the album, featuring the Australian cast of the Footloose musical. The original soundtrack contained six Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hits, three of which reached the Top 10, including two number-one hits, “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins and “Let’s Hear It for the Boy” by Deniece Williams, and “Almost Paradise”, a duet by Ann Wilson and Mike Reno that reached number seven, plus “Somebody’s Eyes” by Karla Bonoff climbed to number sixteen on the Adult Contemporary chart.
