Danger Zone WILL be in the New Top Gun movie!

When Kenny Loggins heard about the NEW Top Gun 2: Maverick movie being made, Kenny reached out to Gun star Tom Cruise, and asked if would he would be needed. Tom Cruise replied, Top Gun is not Top Gun without Danger Zone. Kenny went on to ask Tom if he needed an updated version. Tom replied: Original please. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. (Jaybeau said that part, not Tom Cruise.) Did you know that originally Brian Adams was offered the job of writing and performing the songs for the original Top Gun? He turned it down because he thought the movie glorified war.

One listen to Danger Zone and this will take you right back to the need for speed. See some of our other favorite movie hits below!





  • Whitney Houston-The Body Guard

    Heidi MADE me watch this movie. Actually, it’s pretty good. Plenty of action for me, and enough Kevin Costner for my wife. What a smash this movie song was for Whitney Houston written by Dolly Pardon. I think it got so many spins on radio, it paid for Dollywood.  

  • Huey Lewis-Back To The Future

    I told Huey Lewis that his new song in Back To The Future, The Power Of Love would hit NUMBER ONE. He didn’t believe me and was taken back, with big smiles saying: you really think so? I was right.

  • Bob Segar-Risky Business

    You can’t have a movie song blog WITHOUT THIS.

    Bob Segar really didn’t like disco in Old Time Rock and Roll. Although this song forever will be identified with Tom Cruise in his underwear.

  • Gonna Fly Now-Rocky

    I need to watch this every morning to start my day. Better than coffee.

    We did use Bill Conte’s Gonna Fly Now as the song to introduce us our at our wedding. Well, marriage can be like a prize fight. To me, Sly Stallone still holds up as believable in Rocky.


  • Unchained Melody-Ghost

    Who can forget the romantic clay scene with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze? This 1960’s smash, Unchained Melody from The Righteous Brothers became so popular from the movie Ghost, it was picked up and played by CURRENT music stations in the 1990’s when the movie came out. On date night, the clay thing is harder than they made it look.

  • Bee Gees-Saturday Night Fever

    I don’t think this will get Bob Segar on the floor.

    The moment this movie hit the screen, we all knew that the Bee Gees had a smash with Stayin Alive!
