St. Elmo's Fire: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

St. Elmo's Fire Soundtrack (Reviewed by Dark Wave):

This is the soundtrack to one of the most famous John Hughes film. This was the typical 80s movie and one of the coolest. Back to the soundtrack, it had the hits . St. Elmo's Fire(Man in motion) and the love theme, witch is by the way highly emotional. Every song on this soundtrack is an 80s must-have. It is a fun album to listen and bring back lots of memories.


1. St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)
2. Shake Down
3. Young And Innocent
4. This Time It Was Really Right
5. Saved My Life
6. Love Theme From St. Elmo's Fire(instrumental)
7. If I Turn You Away
8. Stressed Out (Close To The Edge)
9. Georgetown
10. For Just A Moment ("St. Elmo's Fire" love theme)

Response to this review by ValJ): What artists are singing these tunes, DarkWave? I love the St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion) song. I forget the guy's name that sings it, though. If this is Shakedown by Bob Seger, it was popular in our area, as well.

Response to this review by Roemello): St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion) was by John Parr I love that instumental 'love theme' too..that one they play on the ending credits is just one of those cool melodies I like to play on my keyboard from time to time.

shake down by billy squier
young and innocent by elefante
this time it was really right by jon anderson

stressed out(close to the edge) by airplay

love theme "with lyrics" by david foster, vocals by donny gerrand and amy holland
I guess that's it.

Response to this review by SurlyOne): Ahh, now here is one of the most common misconceptions of 80's movies...this is not a John Hughes film! It was directed by Joel Schumacher, although it starred the "Brat Pack," including many veterans of John Hughes films. I think it just came out on DVD. I have to say that I'm not a fan of this soundtrack. The instrumental theme is OK, the John Parr song is rather generic. I was working in a record store when this soundtrack came out, and I would go nuts whenever someone would play it (which was quite often), so that probably colors my opinion of it. I think it was that song by Airplay that used to get on my nerves! No offense to any fans here, I'm not trying to be malicious! Just posting an opinion...

Response to this review by aaronw): I bought the soundtrack many years ago. I only bought it for St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion), nothing else.
The rest of the songs are alright, but John Parr did the best one. I believe only that one song made it to the top of the charts.

Response to this review by Zel): This is one of the best soundtracks of the 80s. I'm very partial to the musical themes by David Foster and Young and Innocent. I believe John Parr had his hand in a lot of soundtracks but this to me put him on the map with Lewis & Seger for great soundtrack songs.
