The soundtrack to Valley Girl features a host of new wave recording artists including The Plimsouls and Josie Cotton, both of whom appeared in the film. Songs by Bonnie Hayes, Modern English, and the Payola$ were also featured prominently. The planned release of a soundtrack album on Epic Records was cancelled due to the clearance problems with some of the songs. The album was never commercially released, but a few copies leaked out and became highly valued collector's items.

Many of the songs were minor chart hits in 1982–1983. Josie Cotton's "Johnny, Are You Queer?" was a regional hit in Southern California in 1981, reaching #5 on KROQ's Top 106 of the year and "He Could Be the One" from her album Convertible Music had reached #74 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1982. The song heard over the opening credits is "Girls Like Me" from Bonnie Hayes' 1982 album Good Clean Fun, which "bubbled under" the Billboard 200 album chart at #206. The Plimsouls' "A Million Miles Away" and the Payola$' "Eyes of a Stranger" were moderate hits in 1982, reaching #11 and #22, respectively, on Billboard's Top Tracks chart. "I Melt with You" by Modern English reached #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1983.

The end credits show songs by The Clash, Culture Club, Bananarama, and The Jam, however, those songs are not heard in the film. After the film was completed, problems arose in acquiring the music rights and substitute songs had to be dubbed in. Altogether, the music rights cost $250,000 on top of the film's original $350,000 budget.

The film originally carried the song "Who Can It Be Now?" by Men at Work in the scene where Randy hides in the shower hoping Julie will come in, but in the Special Edition DVD release, the song "Shelley's Boyfriend" (Bonnie Hayes and the Wild Combo) carries over into the next scene.

I have included full scans.
