The pumping high octane soundtrack contained all the main tracks from the movie including such smash hits as "Take My Breath Away" It has always been readily available on CD.
The best just gets better: Like several classic 80's soundtracks, it was remastered and re-released in the late 90's with bonus tracks, better sound and extensive liner notes giving an insight into the choosing and making of the music used in the movie. Low price too, buy without hesitation!Update Us
Thanks to Michael ManzanoThe Top Gun soundtrack had a big hit in the single "Take My Breath Away", performed by Berlin. However, it was originally planned to be assigned to LA new wave band The Motels. A demo was recorded by The Motels, only for the song to be given to Berlin. The Motels' rendition finally resurfaced on their 2000 rarities compilation "Anthologyland". Although singer Martha Davis does not possess the contemporary-friendly slick produced vocals of Berlin's Terri Nunn, The Motels' version of "Take My Breath Away" is equally beautiful in it's own right.
Rewind ArchiveThe Cars song "Stranger Eyes" was featured in an early trailer for the film.
The classic song "You've lost that loving feeling" was never on the orginal soundtrack album but was heard twice in the film. Tom Whitlock, who with Moroder co-wrote five songs for Top Gun including "Take My Breath Away" and "Danger Zone" had originally been Giorgio Moroder 's Ferrari mechanic! He mentioned one day that he was also a lyricist and they eventually started working together.

Rewind ArchiveHarold Faltermeyer's music score was the first to be performed and recorded on the polyphonic 16 bit stereo Synclavier Digital Music System.
Thanks to Ryan HarvardHarold Faltermeyer's score to the movie is still unreleased officially. However, a bootleg promo of the score was leaked recently which contains most of the background score for the movie, apart from a few score tracks which are missing.
However, the promo contains the complete Top Gun Anthem as played in the movie opening, without Steve Stevens on guitar, and also several other score tracks, including a few more variations on the top gun anthem. This is a must have for fans of Top Gun who want to hear that great instrumental music.
