Moroder was in charge of creating a concept album with a compilation of new songs in different genres and diverse artists, writing most tracks on the album himself in collaboration with Tom Whitlock.[13]

    The soundtrack album was released on February 13, 1987 under CBS to coincide with the release of the movie. It contains music from Frank Stallone, Kenny Loggins (who performs the film's central theme, "Meet Me Half Way"), Eddie Money, and Sammy Hagar. John Wetton, lead singer of the rock group Asia, sang "Winner Takes It All" for the movie, but after performing the song, it was felt that his voice wasn't "mean" enough, so the song was offered to Hagar, whose version, featuring a bass guitar solo from Hagar's then-bandmate Edward Van Halen, ended up being the one on the soundtrack. Asia is credited for the track "Gypsy Soul", but Wetton is the only Asia member who actually contributed to the song.

    I need to watch the movie again, which I haven't seen since I was in high school. I remember this being on HBO non-stop in 87 or 88.

    Can proudly say I've never seen that movie...looks horrible.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    maybe horribly awesome?! I'm really curious how dated it will feel when I finally watch it again. It did have the ubiquitous Kenny Loggins theme that any respectable 80s movie should have.

    I've wondered why Sammy never sings it in concert. I guess that would explain it.

    It's a rare tune for him where he wasn't the writer (and not a cover). I'm guessing that's why.

    By contrast, he loves The Girl gets Around which he wrote for Footloose. It helps that the soundtrack went 10x platinum, the movie is still on TV often, they did a Broadway musical (which included his song) so it's probably done really well for him financially.

    I've only flown over Catalina Island, but it appears to be a great venue.
