"Atomic Blonde - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (16 tracks; 70 min.) brings the music we hear in the movie more or less (but not quite) in chronological order, opening with David Bowie's classic "Cat People (Putting Out Fire)" (itself of course written for a movie), and the table is set for a smorgasbord of fabulous 1980s music (the film is set in Berlin, November 1989, leading up to the fall of the Wall). Given that location, the movie contains a number of major German hits from that era, including Peter Schilling's "Major Tom (Völlig Losgelöst)", Nena''s "99 Luftballons", and After the Fire's "Der Kommissar", all included on this soundtrack. George Michael's "Father Figure" plays in a critical scene of the movie, just wonderful. "The Politics of Dancing" (by Re-Flex) plays in a club scene (of course!). Couple of minor quibbles: New Order's "Blue Monday '88", which in fact opens the movie, is found here in a cover version by HEALTH. Depeche Mode's "Behind the Wheel", heard prominently in the movie, is missing from this soundtrack for reasons unclear. (The band's "Personal Jesus" was featured in the movie's trailer, but is absent from the movie itself.) Last but certainly not least, this soundtrack also includes 3 tracks from the original score by Tyler Bates, which is equally enticing. Check out the very best of them, the Depeche Mode-reminding "Finding the UHF Device", which plays over the movie's end titles. As a final note, with a movie titled "Atomic Blonde", one might expect to hear the classic "Atomic" by Blondie, but no (technically a 1979 release--hence left out, I suppose).
When I typed in "Atomic Blonde Soundtrack", Amazon led me to something called "Blonde Atomic - Music Inspired By the Movie". That turned out to be a FAKE, with nothing but knock-offs by unknown cover bands of all the songs we hear by the original artists. Wow. Complete rip-off!
As to the movie itself, Charlize Theron reconfirms (after 2015's "Mad Max Fury Road") that she is the ultimate female action star, as she claws, kicks and shoots her way out of multiple hair-raising binds. "Atomic Blonde" is, not surprisingly, directed by David Leitch, the guy who co-directed the surprise box office hit "John Wick" some years ago. If you liked "Mad Max Fury Road" or "John Wick", you will love this movie. "Atomic Blonde", both the soundtrack and the movie, is a WINNER!

only found out as it wouldnt play on my hifi.
Thought it was defective but then thought to try on the blu ray player and it worked.
First cd thats its ever happened on
Some great 80s beats which I'd forgotten about. Whoever did the music selection for this movie did a really good job with the tunes setting the scenes in the movie
