It never ceases to amaze me how many people have heard his songs but didn't know he did it. His best known work is the theme from St. Elmo's Fire, the song "St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)", which was at the top of the charts in 1985.
This is his debut album. While not all songs are the greatest, by far the best and most popular is Naughty, Naughty. That song alone is worth the price of the CD.
I have heard most of the songs on this CD. Not too bad. As a whole the CD is pretty fair.
Take a listen to Naughty, Naughty. Chances are you have heard it at some point. If you like his guitar work and voice, then rest of the songs have a similar tone. Still for a debut album, he did a pretty good job.
If you like John Parr, besides Naughty, Naughty, check out St. Elmo's Fire (you still hear it on 80's radio stations sometimes, very good medium paced song), and the theme to The Running Man movie. The song is called "Running Away With You", but I've also seen it called "Restless Heart". Same song. It is played at the end of the movie.
Anyway, for the price you can't go wrong. Unfortunately, John hasn't been heard from in YEARS. The last work of his that I even read about was around 1992. He moved back to the UK where he came from. I wish he would put more music out. He has an excellent voice.
