Top Gun the Motion Picture Soundtrack (1986). Remastered in 1999 with bonus tracks.
For the most part, movie soundtracks have always had their high spots, but oftentimes fail to be consistent from front to back. That is, until the movie Top Gun came out. Featuring a score by Harold Faltermeyer, Tom Whitlock, Giorgio Moroder, and several famous rock/pop artists, the Top Gun soundtrack became the first truly phenomenal rock movie compilation, and a definitive 80's music staple. It conjurs up the best parts of the mid-80's music scene while throwing away any real cheeziness that many people often associate with the period, making this a great introduction to a better time in rock music history. This was how I was introduced, so let's take a look at each of this disc's fifteen tracks:
1) Danger Zone (Kenny Loggins)- An awesome melodic, fast, hard rock number, and one of the two tracks off of here which became popular. Loggins has always crafted some great rockers in the past for other movies (Footloose, Caddyshack), and this one is no exception. 10/10
2) Mighty Wings (Cheap Trick)- Another melodic fast hard rocker, yet much different from anything Cheap Trick has been known to do. This one is one of my favorites, yet strangely it was never popular. Excellent guitar solo. 10/10
3) Playing With The Boys (Kenny Loggins)- Loggins has another fast one, though this track is more of a happy party pop number. Good, but not great. 8/10
4) Lead Me On (Teena Marie)- An upbeat, driving, mid-tempo track which proves to be very strong, coming from a somewhat popular artist at the time. Great passionate vocals. 9/10
5) Take My Breath Away (Berlin)- Top Gun's slow, melodic, and powerful love theme, this track became one of the most famous ballads of the 80's, and with good reason.

Hello everyone. If you are interested in the music written for Top Gun by Harold Faltermeyer you may be able to find a copy of the Top Gun score.......notice I said "MAY BE ABLE TO FIND". As far as I know the original score was never officially released except as an EXTREMELY limited promotional CD (I know because I own a copy). The music is superb (non of that re-recorded junk) and features 11 unreleased tracks by Harold as well as 5 other songs from the film by various artists. Oh, and if you do manage to find a copy for sale, be prepared for a steep price tag! Here is a track listing from the CD:

TOP GUN (THE SCORE) Running Time: (49:40) *=Previously Unreleased

1. Top Gun Anthem (Film Version) (3:41)*

2. Opening Theme (2:39)*

3. Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins (3:36)

5. Negative G Pushover/Cougar's Landing (3:22)*

6. Still Awake/Can't Sleep (2:05)*

7. Playing with the Boys - Kenny Loggins (3:59)

10. Flat Spin (4:26)*

11. Goose's Death/Goodbye Goose (1:49)*

12. New Mission (2:27)*

One of the definitive and best-selling soundtracks of the 1980's was the Top Gun soundtrack. It yielded two Top Five singles, one in the Top Twenty, and two in the bottom half of the charts. With the success of the first two singles, the soundtrack took off without needing any help from the other three.
The racing rocker "Danger Zone" evokes an image of F-14s soaring through the air and cements Kenny Loggins' reputation as that guy who did soundtrack songs (Caddyshack, Footloose, Over The Top). This is definitely his best soundtrack song. The searing guitar solo he does after the bridge is just hot.
Cheap Trick's "Mighty Wings" is a thematic rocker in keeping pace with the movie when Robin Zander and company implores: "Take me on your mighty wings and fly." This shouldn't have flopped in the bottom 50 of the Hot 100. Both this song and "Danger Zone" is refreshing for long car trips.
It's the song afterwards, a mild rocker titled "Playing With The Boys", by Mr. Loggins, that is good, but none one of his best.
With 80's synthesizers blaring, Teena Marie performs the 80's dance pop of "Lead Me On." A similar sound and voice is present in "Destination Unknown" by Marietta. No, this isn't the Missing Persons number. Teena Marie had enough songs to have a greatest hits CD, but whatever happened to Marietta?
Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" was one of those immortal love themes for movies, highlighted by Terri Nunn's vocals. Since I first heard it on radio and MTV, I never got sick of it.
Compared to the material on their first two albums, "Hot Summer Nights" by Miami Sound Machine is totally a throwaway dance song, but at least it's better than when Gloria Estefan overshadowed the machine and turned her back on Cuban dance pop to disco.
