Top 25 80s Soundtrack Songs

Some of these were the most memorable portions of the movie. Some where highly featured. Some just happened during kick ass scenes. Here are my 25 favorite 80's movie/music moments.
1Joe Esposito
You're The Best Around

The Karate Kid - This is the montage song for when Daniel-San kicks major Cobra Kai ass at the All Valley Karate Tournament.
2Kenny Loggins
Danger Zone

Top Gun - You can be my wingman anytime. Bullshit, you can be mine.
3Peter Gabriel
In Your Eyes

Say Anything - The scene where John Cusack holds up a boombox blasting this outside his GF's window.
4Robert Tepper
No Easy Way Out

Rocky IV - The flashback montage where Rocky shifts his Lamborghini about 1,000 times recalling images of Creed dying.
5Simple Minds
Don't You Forget About Me

The Breakfast Club - Da Da, HEY HEY HEY HEY!
6Prince
Purple Rain

Purple Rain - Pretty self explanatory, one of the best songs of the decade.
7Survivor
Eye of the Tiger

Rocky III/IV. Quintiessential pump up song.
8Kenny Loggins
Footloose

Footloose - Kevin Bacon ftw
9Orchestral Manuevers in the Dark (OMD)
If You Leave

Pretty in Pink - Pretty atrocioius movie but a lasting 80's classic tune.
10Michael Sembello
Maniac

Flashdance - See above
11Phil Collins
In the Air Tonight

Risky Business - Didn't become famous because of the movie but is playing in the scene where he bangs Rebecca DeMornay on the train. Classic stuff.
12Harold Faltermeyer
Axel F

Beverly Hills Cop - The instrumental theme song. Gets stuck in your head for days, and theres an awesome techno version of it out there somewhere.
13Vince DiCola
Training Montage

Rocky IV - Unbeatable for a kick ass workout or to get pumped up for something.
14John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band
On the Dark Side

Eddie & the Cruisers - Underrated 80's classic
15Huey Lewis & the News
Power of Love

Back to the Future - Anyone who says they don't love this movie is a fucking liar.
16Ray Parker Jr
Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters - Don't fuck with Eagon Spangler
17Who is Johnny
El Debarge

Short Circuit - might be the catchiest shit of the decade. Also the cheesiest, which makes it awesome.
18Kenny Loggins
I'm Alright

Caddyshack - You really can't lose with this combination
19Eric Carmen
Hungry Eyes

Dirty Dancing - Best song on the soundtrack, easily. Don't even think about putting Baby in the corner.
20Harold Faltermeyer
Top Gun Theme

Top Gun - With help from guitar virtuouso Steve Stevens.
21Mark Safan
Win in the End

Teen Wolf - The song that plays when he improbably decides to play the last game as himself instead of the wolf, and a montage of implausible easy lay ups happen for them to win.
22Gerald McMann
Cry Little Sister

The Lost Boys - THOU SHALL NOT FALL
23John Parr
St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)

St. Elmo's Fire - BURNNNING IN MEEEEEEEEE
24Kenny Loggins
Meet Me Halfway

Over the Top - the 4th Loggins entry. Dude owned 80's soundtracks. Also, everyone needs to check out this Sly Stallone arm wrestling based classic.
25The Cars
Moving in Stereo

Fast Times at Ridgemont High - Whats playing when Phoebe Cates famously gets out of the pool and strips while Judd Nelson plays the 5 Knuckle Shuffle.
