....and it has the absolute BEST soundtrack. I'm gonna have to download it. I love how the music is just constant throughout the flick. Oh, and the movie is pretty good too.
I had the double album soundtrack back when the movie came out...must have played the whole thing a few hundred times.
Company, villainous company hath been the spoil of me.

Hell, I wore out the grooves on my American Grafitti album. Now the tape is going, too. Fortunately I have managed to acquire all the cuts in other ways.
Except the Wolfman Jack part.
I love the movie and the music. And I was born the same year it was made.

The movies American Graffiti, Heavy Metal, and Amadeus are probably my favorite sound tracks.
And i remember meeting the Wolfman a couple times - once when he was a DJ in LA and once when he was in San Diego with Shotgun Tom Kelly. (KCBQ as i recall)
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

I can't watch American Graffiti yet. I have to wait for Labor Day weekend!
I also own the soundtrack on CD. It's weird to listen to those oldies all clear sounding without pops and hisses.
I watched it again twice last week. It was on one of the cable stations along with a few other classics. I was graduating high school in 73 and clearly remember the movie AND the music. I decided to buy the soundtrack CD on Friday and the movie.
I wore the double CD out as a kid. To this day, if I hear one of the songs for the soundtrack, I immediately start singing the next song from the soundtrack when it ends.
I Like Guns and stuff

Had that soundtrack on 8-track tape that I played a million times cruising in my first car back in '74.

And a couple of nights filming in San Rafael before they kicked Lucas and his crew out.
When I was recovering from my heart attack in 2003 my sons bought me a model of this car-they knew/know it's my favorite hot rod of all time lol-and it sits on my computer desk ahahaha.
Great film, have the Special Edition digitally remastered Blu Ray I watch every Labor Day weekend.
