Song Trivia Footloose was one of the first movies to utilise the power of MTV to sell the motion picture through pop videos of the songs, released weeks before the movie came out. This is now standard practise but at the time was a significant gamble. Paramount would repeat the trick exactly a few years later with the release of Top Gun

Kenny Loggins & Dean Pitchford were nominated for the Oscar & Golden Globe for Best Music, Song for the title song. So was Tom Snow for "Let's Hear it for the Boy."

In the sequence in which Ren is teaching Willard how to dance, they're actually dancing and singing along to "Somebody's Eyes." "Let's Hear it for the Boy" was added in post-production.
