Product Description

Product Description

Japanese only paper sleeve pressing features 10 bonus tracks and a new 2009 remastering. Sony.

Amazon.ca

Legend has it that this soundtrack was an in-flight favorite for Air Force fighter jocks ferrying smart-bombs into downtown Baghdad during the Gulf War. If nothing else, it's a time-capsule-ready example of what the jingoistic side of Reaganism wrought in Hollywood during the mid-'80s. With a musical cast of veterans (the insufferable Kenny Loggins, long-suffering Cheap Trick), one-hit wonders (Berlin, Loverboy) and promising newcomers (Miami Sound Machine) cranking the corps-rock out to order, Top Gun sold millions. Tellingly, post-Gulf War, a guilt-ridden Loggins refuses to perform the album's biggest hit (and tub-thumper), "Danger Zone." --Jerry McCulley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Cuz there's no points for second best..." Oct. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
In 1986, "Top Gun" took the world by storm with its somewhat likeable cast, completely unrealistic but fun dogfight scenes, and its very-80s soundtrack. Harold Faltermeyer composed the score for the film (which Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer previously worked with him on "Beverly Hills Cop") and a handful of artists performed the many songs that have become 80s staples. Many have called this the best 80s soundtrack; that might be up for debate, BUT this soundtrack is still great! A 5-star gem and an all-time classic. Now, let's go "through the fire" and take a look at the tracklist:
Danger Zone, performed by Kenny Loggins
- Obviously, the most popular song on the album and one of the best. Ironically, Kenny wasn't the original choice for this song and he was last minute. Who would've thought that this would become his biggest staple?
Mighty Wings, performed by Cheap Trick
- GREAT SONG, and the only one Harold Faltermeyer wrote (he would use some of the instrumentation from this song and put it with his score). This is by far my favorite track on this soundtrack, although it sounds quite different from Cheap Trick's other songs.
Playing with the Boys, performed by Kenny Loggins
- While far from bad, I never quite got into this song. Still pleasurable to listen to, however. Kenny also co-wrote this song.
Lead Me On, performed by Teena Marie
- Pretty good pop tune, Teena Marie has some top-notch vocals here. This one took a while for me to enjoy, but let it grow on you and you can see why it's good.
Take My Breath Away, performed by Berlin
- Often titled the "Love Theme" from Top Gun, this quite good. The mood of the song combined with great vocals brings us a great romantic ballad.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of 1986! April 27 2004
Format:Audio CD
On this soundtrack album to what is Tom Cruise's third starring film and first blockbuster,is,on my CD copy,the original 10-track line-up. It begins with DANGER ZONE,Kenny Loggins' first megahit since 1984's FOOTLOOSE,from the soundtrack album of the same title. He also performs PLAYING WITH THE BOYS. Cheap Trick performs MIGHTY WINGS. Lovergirl Teena Marie performs LEAD ME ON which rocks hard. The love theme performed by Berlin is TAKE MY BREATH AWAY. HOT SUMMER NIGHTS,performed by Miami Sound Machine,sounds cool. Another love song,this one a powerful ballad,is HEAVEN IN YOUR EYES,performed by Loverboy. That would make an excellent title for a cotillion or prom. THROUGH THE FIRE was performed by the almost unknown Larry Greene. Marietta,another almost unknown artist,performs DESTINATION UNKNOWN,not to be confused with the song recorded by Missing Persons. The TOP GUN ANTHEM is an instrumental piece recorded by Harold Faltermeyer,who wrote music for the "Beverly Hills Cop" trilogy,and Steve Stevens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatest movie soundtrack ever! But... Sept. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
[THE TRACKLIST ABOVE IS WRONG. THIS SOUNDTRACK DOES NOT FEATURE THE MAIN TITLE MUSIC.]
Usually good movies have bad soundtracks, or bad movies have good soundtracks. Top Gun is different. It is a great movie with a great soundtrack. What are the odds of that? Though most of these songs never went on to be big hits for their respective artists, no one can deny that they are anything short of excellent. Now, a brief description of each track:
1. Danger Zone, by Kenny Loggins - The most rock and roll song on the album. This tune shows up frequently in the film, and is probably the most popular to surface from it. Caddyshack and Footloose demonstrated that Loggins is excellent at making songs for movie soundtracks, and this even better than the songs he made for those movies.
2. Mighty Wings, by Cheap Trick - This is another mostly rock and roll song, a kind of mini-epic dealing with the struggle to be the best Top Gun pilot around. This one shows up during one dogfight in the film, and in the second half of the end credits. Never very popular, but still cool. DO NOT EXPECT THIS TRACK TO SOUND ANYTHING LIKE CHEAP TRICK'S BIGGEST HIT, I WANT YOU TO WANT ME.
3. Playing With The Boys, by Kenny Loggins - Pure eighties pop. This song just deals with having fun and has the tune to go along with it. It appears in the film during the volleyball scene. Not as good as Danger Zone, but still good.
4. Lead Me On by Teena Marie - One of the best songs on the album, but also one of the most underrated. It seems to deal with a battle of the past, though it's really tough to tell. This song appears in the film during the first half of the orientation party. Why did this song never become a big hit for Marie?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous songs from a fabulous movie Sept. 12 2003
By Vilbs
Format:Audio CD
Kenny Loggins and company done good on this soundtrack from the 1980's blockbuster movie. The music, so essential to the film, stands alone very well as a soundtrack and is a classic collection.
Loggins two contributions are among the best on the album. You can almost see the F-14's taking off from the carrier during the opening song "Danger Zone", or Tom Cruise swatting the volleyball on "Playing with the Boys". Berlin adds the love theme with the beautiful "Take My Breath Away", and Cheap Trick scores big with "Mighty Wings". Also included on the extended soundtrack are several songs that were vital to the progression of the film, yet not included on the original soundtrack such as Otis Redding's "Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay", Jerry Lee Lewis's "Great Balls of Fire", and "You've Lost that Loving Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. Their additions rights a serious ommission and completes the soundtrack.
The remastering really does justice to the songs, and this compilation of great music is complemented by extended liner notes featuring extra photographs and all of the lyrics. (gotta love the extras). All told this is a great collection of rock songs, and a must have soundtrack.

3.0 out of 5 stars Brings back memories
I saw this movie in the 80's & liked the songs. I bought this CD as a reminder. 5 songs are great, the rest could stay in the 80's.
