A frequent contributor to 80s soundtracks, Dan Hartman was featured on the soundtrack for the 1985 aerobics drama(?) Perfect, starring John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis, with the song “Talking to the Wall”.
A massive box office bomb, the soundtrack for 1980’s Xanadu fared better than the movie itself, with Olivia Newton-John and ELO’s title song hitting number 1 in a ton of European countries and hitting the top 10 here in the States.
With Sly Stallone directing and Frank Stallone writing the music, Staying Alive is the insane sequel to Saturday Night Fever where Travolta’s Tony Manero attempts to get a role in the demonic Broadway musical, Satan’s Alley. The title track of the movie and the musical is Far From Over and it will not leave your brain once you listen to it.
