Here are my Top 5 '80's movies by their song!
5) Rocky III / Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
Stallone's Rocky was more than about boxing. It was about being the best. The first Rocky was about endurance and determination. He fought Apollo Creed to a draw. Rocky II was about the rematch. Rocky III was about whether or not he actually was all that. Lately, Stallone's Rocky has been training the next generation in Creed.
4) Eddie and The Cruisers / The Dark Side - John Cafferty
This was a box office flop, but it's one of my favorite movies! If you're a fan of The Boss (Springsteen), this is a pretty cool movie. It's a mystery about whatever happened to this Jersey Shore early '60's rocker, Eddie Wilson... the best part is one of my favorite actors, Joe Pantoliano, who's been in everything from The Goonies to The Matrix.
3) Cocktail / Don't Worry Be Happy - Bobby McFerrin
Tom Cruise was THE busiest actor of the '80's. in 1983 alone, he had FOUR films out, The Outsiders, Losin' It, Risky Business and All The Right Moves. in 1988's Cocktail, he romanced Elisabeth Shue from Back to the Futures II and III as suave and debonair up-and-coming bartender Brian Flanagan. This was one of the many songs on the soundtrack.
2) Dirty Dancing / (I've Had) The Time of My Life - Bill Medley & Jennifer Warnes
I really believe the '80's were GOOD to Bill Medley! Tom Cruise brought The Righteous Brothers back in 1986's Top Gun, screeching You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'; the very next year, he was tops with Jennifer Warnes with the theme from Dirty Dancing. The time of his life? Probably.
1) Footloose - Kenny Loggins
The dude's version of Flashdance. remember that movie? Flashdance came out in '83. The big song from that movie was Irene Cara's What A Feelin'. Footloose came out the very next year. The Kenny Loggins song has held up pretty good over the years. Here's how Bacon made his entrance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon a few years back...
