5.0 out of 5 stars The Song, Video by Cheap Trick ****, The Movie **, to be fair
Great and ‘lost’ video by Cheap Trick in their most ambitious period with the great Jon Brant on Bass, before ‘whats-his’name’ got forced back on Rick, Bun E. and Robin and they’ve been going downhill since, unfortunately. One of the  best bands in US Rock history! Long Live CT & JB!

Yet another very rare soundtrack addition for an equally hard to find 1984 movie: Up the Creek (aka “the frat party boys take on the preppies in a rafting race?”). Feeding off the success of Animal House a few years prior, they managed to get a few of the same actors to return for this horrible cheese-fest. If only it were as promising as the movie poster would lead you to believe. The one redeemable thing about this movie? The soundtrack.
Only released on vinyl, this impossible to find album contains many stand-out tracks like the title song by Cheap Trick.

A brief look (a la best of) at some of the artists who contributed to 1984s Up the Creek soundtrack:

“Chasin’ The Sky” might be the greatest Beach Boys song of the 80s. And they shoved it on this random soundtrack. Smart move guys. Carl Wilson knocks it out of the park on the lead vocal.
The appearance of Shooting Star helps make this soundtrack album worthwhile, but Cheap Trick’s title tune is the admitted star of the package. Tough to find. (At least it was for me.)

The 1984 release of _Up the Creek_ is another in a long line of low-budget T ‘n’ A teenage nostalgia movies. The soundtrack for the lost weekend film is better than the celluloid, but that isn’t saying much, as the movie wasn’t difficult to top. The album opens with the movie theme song from Cheap Trick, and includes a few other hot cuts, highlighted by the contribution from Canadian hard rockers Kick Axe, who laid down a ripping version of Humble Pie’s down ‘n’ out “30 Days in the Hole”. Other artists that added tunes for the _Up the Creek_ soundtrack include Heart, Ian Hunter, Shooting Star, and the Beach Boys.
