PET SOUNDS: Has there ever been a sound track cut with the crazed intensity of the Ramones’ now-legendary title song from “Rock and Roll High School”? So we’re entitled to look forward to the band’s return to sound tracks, coming early next year, with the release of the “Pet Sematary.” The Ramones perform the title song of the film, which was scripted by Stephen King from his best seller. . . . Industry wags have been having a field day with “Till I Loved You,” Barbra Streisand’s new duet with paramour Don Johnson. Quips have ranged from “The worst mismatch since Tyson vs. Spinks” to “What’s next--an Eddie Van Halen album with Valerie Bertinelli?” . . . Who’s that mysterious Lulu Smith who croons on “Scheherazade,” a song on Peter Cetera’s new “One More Story” album? None other than Madonna, who clearly couldn’t resist vocally dramatizing the character of the storyteller from “1001 Arabian Nights.” . . . Howard (Louie Bluie) Armstrong, the colorful leader of America’s last black string band, will be at the Music Machine next Saturday night for two shows (with Dave Alvin and Juke Logan as the opening act).
