An Amazing Playlist – The Last Starfighter

One of the great things about soundtracks is the wonderful themes that composers create. Sadly, many modern day composers seem to have lost this art, or those that try just cant seem to create something as memorable as those from the ’80s and ’90s. By memorable, i mean one like this…The Last Starfighter, composed by Craig Safan. The movie itself is considered a cult-classic, and one of the 1st to show how CGI technology can be used in films. It’s cheesy, but in a cool way…and this main theme is on my top 10 list. I’ve read that Safan employed a larger brass section than normal for this…and you can definitely hear it when they get going.

This particular recording is an arrangement by Erich Kunzel and performed by the Cincinnati Pops orchestra…
