It was only a matter of time until I covered one of the most iconic songs of the 1980’s for Soundtrack Saturday. You can not think of the 1980’s and movies without thinking Tom Cruise, Top Gun, and Danger Zone. You also can’t think of 1980’s Iconic soundtracks without thinking of Kenny Loggins who was the soundtrack man of the 80’s (e.g. Over The Top, Footloose, Caddyshack II). In 1986, Paramount Pictures released the film Top Gun which starred Tom Cruise as a rebellious Naval jet fighter pilot and the film also starred the likes of Val Kilmer, Kelly McGillis, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt, and so many more. The other amazing thing about the film was the soundtrack which featured Cheap Trick, Berlin, Loverboy, Teena Marie, and today’s featured artist Kenny Loggins. Kenny Loggins sang the track Danger Zone which was composed by famous soundtrack composer Giorgio Moroder with lyrics written by Tom Whitlock. It has such an amazing guitar riff with the synths that is just very catchy. Not to mention that this song is Sterling Archer’s favorite song. Check it out below and enjoy the flashback!!!
