In compiling the soundtrack for Oliver Stone's Academy Award winning 1986 Vietnam War epic Platoon, producer Bud Carr opted to eschew original composition in favor of a collection of songs from the '60s in an attempt to capture the period. Many of the songs he selected were not even used in the film. The only excerpt from Georges Delerue's score that made it onto the album was "Barnes Shoots Elias.
