Scarface : Soundtrack Released December 9, 1983

31 years we walked into a movie theater and saw a side of our city many of us did not want the world to see. Scarface starring Al Pacino and Directed by Brian De Palma was the story of a Cuban immigrant that comes to Miami with the goal of ” Taking the word and everything in it” The movie was a Blockbuster hit and inspired a generation of Tony Montana imitators and a bizarre fascination from the Hip Hop community. Initially Universal wanted a ” Hip Hop” soundtrack . Donna Summer’s producer Giorgio Moroder wrote and produced all of the tracks on the album released on December 9,1983. He even enlisted the help of Village People producer Pete Bellote. Moroder’s signature ” dreamlike electronic sounds’ are evident throughout the entire soundtrack, that did not really produce any radio or club friendly hits with the exception of the minimally played ” Rush Rush” by Debbie Harry of Blondie. some of the tracks were included on the soundtrack of the 2001 video game Grand Theft Auto III.
