I must possess that soundtrack; it's a new quest

Holy crap, you guys, guess what movie is on Cinemax right now! No shit, it's Top Secret! This is, in every way, one of my favorite movies of all time. I am compelled, right this minute, to see if the soundtrack is on iTunes.
10 minutes later:
Sadly, the soundtrack is not on iTunes. The movie is, but not the album. I'll have to check Amazon, I guess. Anyway, I remember seeing this film for the first time at the Melody theater in Thousand Oaks, and I totally dragged my mom to see it. I think she thought it was ridiculous, but I loved it. I mean, really, I loved it. And still, I sit here, 24 years later (yes, the film was made in 1984, and I'm old), giggling at "phony dog poop," the station moving instead of the train, and how awesome Nick Rivers' songs are, and always will be. Oh yeah, and Val Kilmer was hot. And the girl's hair after the motorcycle ride towards the end. And the male ballet dancers. And Latrine! And "I know a little German. He's sitting over there." And the prop room. And the backwards bookseller. And the fireplaces.
I must stop! I'm overdosing on funny!

and the Ford pinto explosion, and the dressing up in the cow costume and getting milked... I must rent that again.
