Dirty Dancing: Original Soundtrack from the Vestron Motion Picture is the original soundtrack to the 1987 film Dirty Dancing. It was released on July 18, 1987, by RCA Records.[2] The album went on to sell 32 million copies worldwide and is one of the best-selling albums of all time.[3][4] In the United States, the album spent 18 weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and has been certified 11-times Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[2][5]

A follow-up album, More Dirty Dancing, was released in March 1988. The album Ultimate Dirty Dancing, released in December 2003, contains every song from the motion picture Dirty Dancing in the order it appears in the film.

Due to the strong resurgence of vinyl record sales, Dirty Dancing received a vinyl reissue in 2017, along with a Blu-Ray remaster with a 5.1 surround soundtrack and previously unreleased material.
