  10. Harold Faltemeyer & Steve Stevens: Top Gun Anthem (CD: CDCBS 70296)
Note: Colin Linskey informed me that the Top Gun Special Collector's Edition DVD includes comments from film producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Harold Faltermeyer, Giorgio Moroder, Kenny Loggins and Terri Nunn, plus the videos for Danger Zone, Take My Breath Away, Heaven in Your Eyes and Top Gun Anthem. Colin kindly transcribed some information from the DVD: Producer Jerry Bruckheimer chose Harold Faltermeyer for the score because when they worked with Giorgio on Flashdance, Harold F would arrange Giorgio's melodies and they "felt he was so energetic and so talented, they sent him the script of Top Gun and said 'Tell us what you think about this'.." Harold F said "He loved it. Let me send you something.." That was the Grammy-winning 'Top Gun Anthem'. Moroder had his first couple of songs rejected. "So I was a little disappointed"... "One song I knew would be very important was at the beginning, after the opening of the Harold Faltermeyer song, and I knew a ballad would work quite well when Tom Cruise meets the girl." Danger Zone Kenny Loggins "had just got into Tina Turner's present incarnation at the time, and I was deep into what she was doing. The rock-soul thing she was doing. So I brought that in as a model of where I wanted to take the vocal. And I think that's why I ended up singing; "Dan-ger Z-o-o-ne!!!" You know -I was doing Tina!!!" Take My Breath Away This turned into a competition between Terri Nunn and Martha Davis (The Motels). Terri was very small; Martha was very tall, "so you had the short and the long version!" According to Terri, whilst working with Moroder on No More Words he came in one day and said: "I have this song for this movie, and it's coming out next summer, and it's going to be huge and big and Tom Cruise, and it's so wonderful! And you have to do it. Would you like to do this song?" Terri said "Yeah", but Berlin's main writer/producer John Crawford said "I don't know" because he "had a problem doing music by anybody else. But I loved it. Because it was so romantic. We did the song, and it changed everything. It changed my life." She didn't sing it as a love song. "Because at the time... I had not had any love in my life for... years! I really didn't have a life, at that point. So I sang from a position of; 'Boy, wouldn't it be nice to have someone say 'Take my breath away'? To have somone there, to have someone love me, to have all this romance because I didn't. A lot of people say they hear this melancholy, this sadness in the song, and that's where I was at the time. I wasn't in anything."
