The Best 80’s Movie-Music
We love the 80’s. We love 80’s music and we love 80’s movies. So what better than to offer up our selections for the best songs to be featured in classic 80’s films. Just in time to get you in the mood for our Bringing the 80’s Back Party next Friday.
The Karate Kid
You’re The Best Around - Joe Esposito Originally written for a Rocky sequel, this song became the fight montage song for the first Karate Kid (1984) movie. It might be Joe Esposito’s only claim to fame but it’s a great one. Watch the entire fight montage here.
Back to the Future
Do the 80’s get any more awesome than Huey Lewis doing the big hit number from the original Back To The Future? Absolutely not. Official video (minus the 2 minute extended opening) here.
Raise your hand if you bought the Rocky III soundtrack just for this song…we thought so. Here’s the official music video.
Best known as the song in the final dance sequence of Dirty Dancing. Nobody puts baby in a corner indeed! Watch the official music video here.
When there’s something strange in your neighborhood, Ray Parker Jr. will sing a song about it. Listen to it here.
Kenny Loggins was all over movie soundtracks in the 80’s. This time providing the party music for the kids in Footloose. Check out the music video here.
