Elmo's Fire Soundtrack (Reviewed by Dark
is the soundtrack to one of the most famous John Hughes film. This was
the typical 80s movie and one of the coolest. Back to the soundtrack,
it had the hits . St. Elmo's Fire(Man in motion) and the love theme, witch
is by the way highly emotional. Every song on this soundtrack is an 80s
must-have. It is a fun album to listen and bring back lots of memories.
1. St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)
2. Shake Down
3. Young And Innocent
4. This Time It Was Really Right
5. Saved My Life
6. Love Theme From St. Elmo's Fire(instrumental)
7. If I Turn You Away
8. Stressed Out (Close To The Edge)
10. For Just A Moment ("St. Elmo's Fire" love theme)
to this review by ValJ): What
artists are singing these tunes, DarkWave? I love the St. Elmo's Fire
(Man in Motion) song. I forget the guy's name that sings it, though. If
this is Shakedown by Bob Seger, it was popular in our area, as well.
to this review by Roemello): St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion) was by John Parr I love
that instumental 'love theme' too..that one they play on the ending credits
is just one of those cool melodies I like to play on my keyboard from
time to time.

to this review by SurlyOne): Ahh, now here is one of the most common misconceptions
of 80's movies...this is not a John Hughes film! It was directed by Joel
Schumacher, although it starred the "Brat Pack," including many
veterans of John Hughes films. I think it just came out on DVD. I
have to say that I'm not a fan of this soundtrack. The instrumental theme
is OK, the John Parr song is rather generic. I was working in a record
store when this soundtrack came out, and I would go nuts whenever someone
would play it (which was quite often), so that probably colors my opinion
of it. I think it was that song by Airplay that used to get on my nerves! No
offense to any fans here, I'm not trying to be malicious! Just posting
to this review by aaronw): I bought the soundtrack many years ago. I only bought it
for St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion), nothing else.
The rest of the songs are alright, but John Parr did the best one. I believe
only that one song made it to the top of the charts.
to this review by Zel): This is one of the best soundtracks of the 80s. I'm very
partial to the musical themes by David Foster and Young and Innocent.
I believe John Parr had his hand in a lot of soundtracks but this to me
put him on the map with Lewis & Seger for great soundtrack songs.
