Heartbeat, heartbeat uh-oo-whoah-oooh...

Repeat until insane.

About as out of step with the cool clinical film that preceded the song as it is possible to imagine

Elm Street 3 IS one of the better ones. It has some daft moments but is the cut-off point before the series got really silly. Plus the song's great.

Paul McCartney wrote a "decent" Bond theme. Is decent a euphemism for contender for Best Bond theme

One of the most awesome movies of all time has an even more awesome end credits song (clearly written for the movie) - such classic lines as "Twins - together outside and in" "Everythings great when you're twins"! What's not to love about this!!

They should re-release Manhunter with all the shite 80s rawk toons wiped off it, it would lift the film to another level. I also like "Stand on your own/there's No Retreat, No Surrender!" I only noticed recently that the J. Geils Band of (Angel Is The) Centrefold fame did the song for Fright Night in 1985: "We're all in for a-most frightening night-night-night!"

I knew Frank Stallone would be on there for First Blood, Part II, but I have to admit, I started the list with the intention of mentioning in the comments page about how you missed We Fight for Love. Glad to see you were already on top of it. Great list!

Ok, most of the selection is god awful but weren't the 80's in general god awful anyway? It reflects perfectly the time, mehinks. Have to admit Xanadu and Christmas Vacation...I kind of like, guilty pleasure and I've heard far worse like say Adele's 'Skyfall' theme anyone.....anyone?!

"Kumite! Kumite! Kumite!" - My toes started wiggling along to this again the moment it started.
Back in the days I recorded my favourite scenes of the movie on a tape recorder so I could listen to them. That's how much I love(d) it. And that song was the high point of my compilation, haha. :-)
Still awesome.

Live and Let Die 'decent'? Was this written by a 12 year old Justin Bieber fan with no musical taste whatsoever?

That was one terrible and strangely unmemorable list of songs, just about saved by 'Hearts On Fire'. :)

Damn right I think Nightmare on Elm Street part 3: Dream Warriors is one of the better entire, it's an excellent movie, if you just watch parts 1, 3 and 7 (New Nightmare) It makes a kick ass, totally self contained trilogy without any of the nonsense that spoiled the franchise.

Dragnet reminds me of a time when Tom Hanks used to shout every one of his lines in every movie!

Electric dreams by Giorgio Morader, true cheesy 80's. Note sure whether it ended the movie but what a classic 80's song, we'll always be together, togeeeetherrr in Electric dreams.
