“Ruthless People” is the theme song for the 1986 black comedy, starring Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Judge Reinhold and Helen Slater. It also features Bill Pullman as a supporting role in his film debut.

The song was co-written by Mick Jagger, Daryl Hall and Eurythmics co-member Dave Stewart and performed by Jagger. Assuming the song would be a hit, “Weird Al” Yankovic requested (and received) permission from Jagger to record a parody version, “Toothless People”, for his upcoming Polka Party! album. When Jagger’s song failed to crack the Top 40, Yankovic considered not recording his version; because Jagger had “authorized” the parody, however, he decided failing to produce it would be an insult to the artist and recorded it.

The movie version features different lyrics from the single version.

    Classic mid 80s dance sound, Mick is more suited to the Rolling Stones material, but not a bad track by all means.

    Thanks fro the rip, Paul.. 🙂

    Thanks Paul for another re-rip. Only had the soundtrack but not the 12”.
    Quite an A-listed soundtrack it was, but only Modern Woman was the hit.
    But I LOVE the movie!
    Hilarious! Bette was amazing in that movie!

    I really like the Mick Jagger 80’s 12 inches, so many thanks for this re-rip Paul!
    ‘Lucky In Love’ is another superb track that has been remixed in a great new version. Hope you will do a series of Mick Jagger in the future.

    Stefano,

    I love how you think. I’d love to have all of Mick’s 12-inches done by Paul. It’s great that so many of us have the same tastes in music here. I feel validated with what I love and cherish. Paul makes everything tremendous!
