The Last American Virgin is a 1982 teen coming-of-age film in the same vein as Summer Break, Better Off Dead and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. As with all films of the genre, the soundtrack is an 1980s pop archive; it featured songs by Lionel Richie, REO Speedwagon, The Cars, Blondie, The Police, and James Ingram.
The Last American Virgin is a remake of the Israeli film Eskimo Limon (1978). After the success of the original and several sequels, writer/director Boaz Davidson re-teamed with producers Golan-Globus to attempt to re-create the same success in the United States. Davidson decided, however, to change a few key elements from the original. Eskimo Limon was a nostalgia film about kids growing up in 1950s Israel — similar to George Lucas's American Graffiti, however the remake was set in present day suburban Los Angeles. The soundtrack was also updated from golden oldies to more contemporary New Wave rock.
The soundtrack is a memorable compendium of 1980s radio hits...
