Risky Business is the third soundtrack album and twentieth overall by Tangerine Dream. It is the soundtrack for the 1983 film, starring Tom Cruise.[3] It includes songs by Bob Seger, Muddy Waters, Jeff Beck, Prince, Journey and Phil Collins. The Tangerine Dream songs were chiefly previously released compositions, shortened and retitled to correspond to scenes in the movie. The other songs on the soundtrack, with the exception of "Old Time Rock and Roll" and "In the Air Tonight," are shortened versions as well.

Although the film included "Every Breath You Take" by The Police, "Hungry Heart" by Bruce Springsteen, and "Swamp" by Talking Heads (which includes the lyric "risky business"), these have never been released with the soundtrack.
