I am one of the few critics, apparently, who adored Franco Zeffirelli's film Endless Love. There's no denying the impact its soundtrack has had on the music world. The title song by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie is legendary. The rest of the soundtrack is just as great and memorable. The appearance of Kiss makes a great addition, amidst the hauntingly beautiful score by Jonathan Tunick. The only way the soundtrack could have been better would have been if they had included Blondie's "Heart of Glass," which makes a very prominent appearance in the film.
