When love reigns over Northwood High out in the Chicago ‘burbs, it happens underneath the soft, pink spotlights illuminating that most special night of the year—prom night! And when that happens, it’s bound to be called… Passable in Pink. That is, if it’s a laughably inept 1984 teensploitation movie that made John Hughes look like Orson Welles. And if that movie never actually existed.

Omnivore Recordings unveils Passable In Pink: Official Motion Picture Soundtrack in conjunction with the release of Passable in Pink, a cinematic audio experience from Audible Originals.

Concocted by the bestselling author Mike Sacks (Poking A Dead Frog), who wrote Audible’s 2018 hit Stinker Lets Loose!, Passable in Pink sends up the 1980s with an epic cast: Gillian Jacobs, Bob Odenkirk, Adam Scott, Justine Bateman, Judd Nelson, Rhea Seehorn, Laraine Newman, and more. The soundtrack from Mark Rozzo (who created the Stinker Lets Loose!! soundtrack and who has played in Champale, Maplewood, and Bambi Kino) channels every ’80s subgenre imaginable: blippy New Wave, swanky U.K. pop, bratty Twin Cities punk, Winston-Salem jangle, Swiss techno, New Agey electronica, even some break beat and a high-school pep-rally band in overdrive.

With 13 lost gems from such mythic bands as Zebra Trucks, The Spurts, Klub Zurich, The Celibates, Café Racers, The Zero Hour, White Noiz, and more, it’s music snob’s who’s-who of ’80s obscurities. Well, imaginary ones, anyway. Teaming up with Dennis Diken (Smithereens), Doug Gillard (Guided by Voices), Lee Wall (Luna), Ira Elliot (Nada Surf), Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs), Geoff Blythe (Dexys Midnight Runners), and other friends, Mark has created a parallel-universe John Hughes-movie soundtrack, one echoing the alternative music that record-obsessed teens actually listened to during the Reagan Era, on seven-inch singles, fanzine flexi discs, wee-hours college-radio, and third-generation cassettes.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
