Why Is Top Guns Soundtrack Its Most Iconic Feature? ...

It''s rare that a film and its soundtrack to be so in sync that you can never remember one without the other. Top Gun is a genius, with a wide range of scenes, from a dark and humorous movie to a pop culture event. There''s one thing that improves Top Gun''s performance from a cheesy to forgettable installments, while causing the audience to feel a sense of joy. From Kenny Loggins to Berlin, the melodies suited the audiences

Although the highly anticipated sequel will include Lady Gaga and One Republic originals to refine the content, it is difficult to imagine a better variety of tracks than those included in the film''s acclaimed predecessor. There are no doubts that the music in the 1986 film will forever be regarded as its most iconic character.

Imagine going down a supermarket aisle or listening to a Danger Zone blast through speakers. It''s difficult to not stop and imagine a second scene to replace the top Guns, claiming that it was a massive accomplishment and worthy of a few moments under the spotlight.

Another favorite from the Loggins repertoire is Playing with the Boys, which sets the tone for the notorious volleyball scene. Tom Cruises Maverick, along with his fellow companion Goose (played by Anthony Edwards), is in an intense match against Iceman (Val Kilmer) and Slider (Rick Rossovich).

It''s when Charlotte Blackwood (Kelly McGillis) confesses to Maverick that she couldn''t be transparent in her evaluation of his flight for fear that others may notice that she has fallen for him. If it hadn''

While Maverick gets to a point in which she falls in love with him, the first thing he notices is that she performs well with his own music. A second moment, though, lets me explain why she is making an appearance in the show. This week, I will take a moment to reminisce on Maverick splicing Charlotte at the bar, saying, "It''s okay to get what I need"

It''s easy to say that Top Gun''s key moments were improved due to the soundtrack. If it were for Playing with the Boys, the flight sequence would not have been as thrilling to watch. Finally, if it weren''t for Playing With the Boys, the romance would not have reached full circle. Top Gun''s cliche storyline had enough value to commemorate years on end.
