Sex Thief

One of the earliest and most interesting installments in the wave of big studio "erotic thrillers" that eventually swallowed up most of the '90s, 1984's Thief of Hearts doesn't get mentioned too often these days in the wake of bigger, more sensationalistic titles like Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct; it's definitely a better film though and is, believe it or not, genuinely sexy. (It's also one of the very few Jerry Bruckheimer productions that won't induce migraines.) The story follows a bored married socialite who winds up having an affair with a swarthy cat burglar who, it just happens, is the same guy who breaks into her house and reads her diaries. Oops. The effective and wonderfully '80s score by German composer Harold Faltermeyer was his first big American gig and landed him some bigger future assignments including Beverly Hills Cop and Fletch. The soundtrack is also peppered with a few pop tunes including the semi-hit single (whose steamy music video got it shoved to late night play on MTV) and even an appearance from actress/singer Elizabeth "E.G." Daily (Better Off Dead).

Wow - I found entry via a Google Blogsearch, hoping to find a song or two from TOH. It's one of my favorites, both the soundtrack and the film. Thank you for sharing this.

Thanks for Thief Of Hearts OST. That's my favourite soundtrack ever, and I've been looking it for years.
May I ask for a higher quality audio for this OST? It would be better with 192kbps at 44,1 KHz.

Thanks

This is what I call REAL SOUNDTRACK. Very awesome, hipnotizing.

I agree with Rudy D above, we need a higher audio quality for this soundtrack.

Please, would you re-upload it with higher bitrate (at least 128 KBPS). Ciao...

Thanks for Thief of Hearts. It's a great soundtrack album.

And yes, I agree with higher bitrate at 192 kbps. It would be more enjoyable. Please...

Big thanks to you.
It's remind me of my teenage years.

Unfortunately, the sound quality is too low (only 96 Kbps in Mono). It would be great if you could re-upload it with a better quality.

What the hell is going on here?
Seems, this post had a lot of comments.

Is it really a good soundtrack? I don't believe it. Good or bad is only a matter of who taste it.

I will say, FAST FORWARD is the best ever soundtrack.

Yes, you're right, we need a better bitrate.

I suggest 192 Kbps would be enough.

I think a lot of people have this soundtrack because this album has been in torrent for years. I had been download this several years ago (in good bitrate).
But my PC got in trouble and the harddisk need to replace. Then I lost my albums, inculding this ost.

I've search the torrent, yesterday. I found the link of this ost at torrentreactor.com, but no active source/seed.

Anyway, thanks to you 7 black notes for uploading this ost. And I lay my request on you, cause you're the only one I know, who had this album.

Seems this ost have a lot of fans.

Last week I found the link of this ost at a japanese website. But now I can't remember the web address. It was written in japanese, and a lot of 80's soundtrack was found in there.

I will inform you when i found the website.
