Pat Benatar: Metropolis Mix

One could cogently argue that the 1980’s Giorgio Moroder cut of Fritz Lang’s seminal science fiction movie Metropolis is not the best or definitive version.  I would argue, though, that Moroder’s soundtrack for Metropolis is one of the best soundtracks of the 80’s, or, in fact, of that latter part of the last century.  The soundtrack album, though, has different versions of the songs, though, and is in my opinion substantially inferior.  This is most evident with Pat Benatar’s contribution.  She sings “Here’s My Heart”, which recurs throughout the film; and the version in the film is far superior to that on the soundtrack album.  The version above is a spliced-together mix of the movie version of the song.  Despite the inferior production values of the album version, Benatar does great on it; but in the movie version, she sings like an angel.  I dare you not to fall in love with her after listening to this!  😉
