Top Gun – A Musical Analysis

With all this craziness going on around Tom Cruise, I thought it would be nice to remember all the good things he has given us in the past, so I present to you Top Gun starring Tom Cruise, one of the greatest ever soundtracks top gun t shirt. He might be crazier than a bag of snakes, but I love him for Top Gun. Let us go back to 1986 and take a look at one of the phenomenons of the 80s, Top Gun!

Kenny Loggins! What happened to him? He made some amazing music for movies, especially in the 80s. On Top Gun there are 3 tracks from him, “Danger Zone”, “Playing With The Boys” and a dance remix of “Playing With The Boys”, all great songs. “Danger Zone” was a massive hit in USA, peaking at #2 on Billboard Hot 100. “Playing With The Boys” wasn’t released as a single as far as I know, but it still makes me want to tear off my shirt and run to the beach playing volleyball. Of course, Top Gun wouldn’t be as great without the love scenes between Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis, including the silly rendition of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” by The Righteous Brothers and one of the most powerful love songs of the 80s, nay the century, “Take My Breath Away” by Berlin top gun t shirts. It deservedly won the Academy Award for Best Original Song as well as the Golden Globe for Best Original Song in 1987. Of course it reached number 1 in both USA and the UK.

Top Gun also contained some of the most memorable movie score cues of the 80s by none other than the legend Harold Faltermeyer, we salute you! Isn’t “Top Gun Theme” such a great song? It’s just exciting and musically beautiful to listen to, even after all these years.

Of course it doesn’t end there as the whole album is filled to the brim with great songs such as the powerful “Mighty Wings” by Cheap Trick, “Hot Summer Nights” by Miami Sound Machine and “Through The Fire” by Larry Greene to the beautiful ballads “Heaven In Your Eyes” by Loverboys and “Destination Unknown” by Marietta. It also includes classics like the already mentioned “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” by The Righteous Brothers, “The Dock Of The Bay” by Otis Redding and the unforgettable “Great Balls Of Fire” by Jerry Lee Lewis.

If you want to know what the 80s was all about, then all you have to do is listen to this amazing soundtrack.
