Devolution here,

I think it's time to spice things up, a little debate and a little something to make us say "man I should have thought of that!"


Not the best song ever and I'm sure I'll pick a better one BUT


My favorite song that opens any movie is....

Neutron Dance by The pointer sisters for Beverly Hills Cop 1.

BRING IT ON!!!

WE are DEVO

I love the opening theme to "Author Author" w' Al Pacino. It's the sappiest song you'll ever hear, ie..."coming home to you is like coming home to milk and cookies....", but it really seems to capture the 80's spirit....kinda sounds like the intro to every 80's sitcom....check it out.

I like 'All The Right Moves' the song that starts the film with the same name. Pretty cool.

Black Rain also has a cool song called 'I'll Be Holding On' when Michael douglas is riding his bike into New York.

I think Girls Like Me was a good choice for VALLEY GIRL.

Holiday Road opening up the first Vacation film. Catchy and gets you into the wild spirit of what's to come.

Chris! Awesome! Now I have Holiday road stuck in my head. I would have to say that is my favorite as well. And James Andrews, all the right moves might be #2 for me. I also enjoy Back to the Future, Back in time.

Great Topic

Trick or Treat(1986)

Who knew that Skippy from 'Family Ties' could play such a kick-as$, hard rockin', 80's metal fan? Rock on! \m/ \m/ Lol!

Objection! This song ends the movie, it doesn't start it.

Objection upheld. Proceed.

Finally, a fellow fan. Can you believe that on a metal site I visit someone started a poll on the best rock movie ever made and didn't even include this one? No, me neither...gits!

I have since enlightened the young fellow though...

LOVE HATES by Marianne Faithfull in TUFF TURFF.... great song, great intro scene with spader on his bike, cruising through the valley at night (or where ever it was filmed).

Some great choices up above with Vacation, Fast Times, Adventures in Babysitting, Back to the Future, etc. (as a kid, I used to rewind the "Power of Love" opening from BTTF over and over on the VCR)

Other favorites...

"Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds from The Breakfast Club

"Something To Remember Me By" from Three O'Clock High

and a guilty pleasure...

The Revenge of the Nerds Theme
