    Oh man, here we go. Ok.

    Paul Hertzog's work on scoring Bloodsport... even for all of the pretentious stuff I try to get into, music almost does not get any better than this for me. Stan Bush's "Fight To Survive" is just the cheesiest, most passionate pump-up self-help songs, with those stupid tribal chants that just make you want to flying tiger kick a garbage can. I love Stan Bush songs in 80's action films. The film opens with a piece called "Kumite", which is basically an ARP masturbation piece. So. Fucking. good.

    Then there's James Horner scoring the Arnold classic, Commando. There's a lot of very topical steel drum action in it, which we're hearing creep into to newer music today. Here's a protip: It's not referencing island music, it's referencing 80's action. "We Fight For Love" by The Power Station is one of those post-metal boogie tracks that will never be respected by anyone ever. Which is fine, because it's terrible. But I love it so much.

    Let's see. Paul Herzog also scored Kickboxer starring Jean-Claude Van Damme. Stan Bush belts out another classic on that one called "Never Surrender". OH MY FUCKING GOD you're fucking up big if you've never shouted the chorus to that track at the top of your lungs with your fists in the air.

    Oh, yeah, I'm forgetting Stallone. Rocky. Rocky IV specifically. Vince DiCola scored the only Rocky soundtrack worth a shit. Of course, Bill Conti's "Gonna Fly Now" might be contrived and played out, but if you listen to the original with those ride cymbal bell hits on the up-beat will fill your heart with burning desire to take punches and win. The "training montage" piece is a fucking Odyssey.

    I could go on, but basically Stan Bush songs in 80's action movies are massive favorites among movie scores. He is unbeatable on the Transformers Movie soundtrack.

    This has been a terrible post, but it's the first time in months something on this board has asked me to reveal my true passions.
    Jamesey don't dance no mo. He just stands there like this.
