Endless Love Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Mercury – 6337 182)
Endless Love: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is the soundtrack album to the film of the same name. The album was released worldwide by Mercury Records and PolyGram in 1981.
While the Endless Love movie itself faded into obscurity, the film's soundtrack and its theme song by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie, also called "Endless Love", certainly did not. The song was a No. 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and nearly 30 years after its release still remains the best-selling single of Ross' career. The single stayed at No. 1 for no less than nine weeks from August 9 to October 10, 1981, making it the biggest-selling single of the year in the US. It also topped the Billboard R&B chart and the Adult Contemporary chart as well as becoming a top ten hit single in the UK, peaking at No. 7. It also reached the top ten charts in most parts of the world.
The soundtrack album also featured two tracks that were not originally recorded for the actual film: KISS' "I Was Made for Lovin' You", first released on their album Dynasty, a No. 11 hit on Billboard's singles chart in 1979, as well as Cliff Richard's "Dreamin'", written by singer Leo Sayer and producer Alan Tarney, originally included on Richard's album I'm No Hero, also a top ten hit in the UK in 1980. Blondie's 1979 US and UK No. 1 hit "Heart of Glass" which also briefly appeared in the movie was not included on the soundtrack album.
