    Please, I need some help.
    I've downloaded an MP3 version of the Top gun theme (studio version), where the artist featured is Eddie Van Halen. I had already seen this song associated with Eddie several times in different sites and now I finally decided to download it.
    But wasn'it recorded by Steve Stevens?
    The style is not just Eddie's and the guitar solo sounds a little different from his.
    In my opinion it has nothing to do with VH, but I don't know.
    Is there anybody who nows something?
    Thanx

    I had one that said it was by Joe Satriani, but I know it wasn't by Satch or Ed. (However it does sound like Satch). your probably right about Steve Stevens doing it. I never knew who it was I just remember reading somthing about how it wasn't Eddie or Satch on the Top Gun thing.

    I'm pretty sure it's Steve Stevens. I've also seen files that say "Top Gun theme - Eddie Van Halen", but they're just mislabeled.

    Steve Stevens and Harold Faltermeyer recorded the Top Gun Anthem - EVH had nothing to do with it, even though in parts it sounded like he did.

    Alrighty, long story, involves a girl and long-lost-love and all that good stuff. [img]redface.gif[/img] If you don't want to read about that, proceed no further.

    It's the end of 8th grade. I see Top Gun for the first time in a long time, and it rocks my socks. At around this time I'm getting ready to go on a trip to Washington, DC with my class, and she'll be involved in the trip.

    This chick is damn hot. Picture in a bit. Anyway, I stare at her for a couple days in Washington. Third - and final, no less - day of the trip rolls around. We're at an amusement park, and she starts talking to me. I start making stupid movie quotes from Top Gun, and she's all like "I like that movie too!" and we started talking about "foreign relations" where he was flipping the bird to the MiG.

    We had something in common.

    So anyway, I get back from Washington, stokified about how Top Gun may have scored me a very hot chick in a time where that was EXTREMELY difficult to come by.

    My birthday - the day of the 8th grade dance - rolls around. I get the Top Gun and Mission: Impossible soundtracks for my birthday. It rocks.

    I forget which one I fired up first...I think it was Top Gun, not really sure. Anyway, I go to the dance. My friends and I act like a bunch of Top Gun machos, it's fuckin' ridiculous. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    And in my machismo, I forgot to ask the chick to dance with me. Shit. [img]redface.gif[/img]

    Few weeks pass by, life is good. I ask her out on last day of school, don't hear back. I give her my number only to stay online on the only phone line in the house.

    Two weeks later I learn she's moved to Germany. Swell, lemme tell ya. [img]graemlins/scared.gif[/img]

    Ahh well. Here she is...

    Cool story, it's too bad that she moved to Germany. At least you had the guts to give her your number, most guys that age would have chickened out. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Gah, I pushed this one off topic, LOL.

    I gave her my number in the ask-out note which I routed through my best friend who routed it through her best friend who gave it to her.

    Seriously.
