Soundtrack Saturday: Top Gun
I think we have a new contender for most iconic soundtrack featured on the Soundtrack Saturday weekly feature and it be Top Gun. When Jeff suggested the soundtrack on Facebook I immediately thought to myself “duh” of course. I had a copy of the Top Gun soundtrack when I was younger, I may have an old CD copy of it floating around though I haven’t seen it for a long time and may be making it up but it’s such a popular soundtrack.
If you’ve seen Top Gun then you know the soundtrack, it’s one of those happy alignments that happen when a soundtrack so perfectly fits and encapsulates a film and a time in space which Top Gun does. Danger Zone whilst often parodied or used jokingly (most notably for me right now in the animated series Archer) it’s perfect for this film.
Now I can’t embed the soundtrack because the Grooveshark plugin has become a bit of a pain in the arse and was disrupting the WordPress method of putting images into a post so I’ve disabled it for the time being until I can get it to work without making all the red lights flash and pushing the needle into the danger zone (see what I did there) so I’m going to raid the YopuTube cupboard for some Top Gun soundtrack lovin:
I would be interested in hearing if anyone has a better way aside from Grooveshark for me to embed music into the blog, either use the contact form or a comment below.
More importantly though share your own memories about the Top Gun soundtrack!! Love it? Hate it? Never heard of it?!?!
