Historical note

Although the entire soundtrack (save for "TVC 15" and "Stay") is made up of songs from Bowie's Berlin years (1977–1979), the story of Christiane F. plays in the early stages of that time (1976–1977); e.g. Christiane F. visited the concert of the Isolar – 1976 Tour in Berlin, which was opened by the song "Station to Station".[2] The live version included in the film and soundtrack is taken from the album Stage, recorded on the 1978 Isolar II Tour.
