An Officer and a Gentleman Soundtrack
The music that accompanies all this angst and romance is the wonderfully uplifting ‘Up Where We Belong’ by Joe Cocker, who could forget it?!
As we all know, "Up Where We Belong", featured at the end of this movie, became not only a classic 80s song, but one of the most memorable love songs of all time. Shockingly enough, it almost didn't make it into the movie. Infamous producer Don Simpson, normally a man with a good ear for music (He helped the "Flashdance", "Beverly Hills Cop" and "Top Gun" soundtracks to the top of the charts), and Michael Eisner, who was working for Paramount at the time, said that they didn't like the song. He had somebody with a better tune, according to him, in mind. That somebody? Overbearing songster and "Saturday Night Live" target of ridicule Neil Diamond. Simpson said Diamond's song would be better. Thankfully, common sense won out and "Up Where We Belong" remained in the movie. [Thanks to John Edward Kilduff]Update Us
