A Pictorial History of the Movies: 1986 – Top Gun

Watching every motion
In my foolish lover’s game
On this endless ocean
Finally lovers know no shame

Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion
As you turn around and say

Take my breath away

It’s fucking Top Gun.

Watching I keep waiting
Still anticipating love
Never hesitating
To become the fated ones
Turning and returning

To some secret place to find
Watching in slow motion
As you turn to me and say
My love

Take my breath away

Highest-grossing movie of 1986. Turned Tom Cruise into a mega star. A bunch of the songs from the movie were huge hits.

Through the hourglass I saw you
In time you slipped away
When the mirror crashed I called you
And turned to hear you say
If only for today
I am unafraid

Take my breath away

Iconic lines. “Need for Speed”; “You can be my wingman any time”; “Your ego is writing checks your body can’t cash.”

Watching every motion
In this foolish lover’s game
Haunted by the notion
Somewhere there’s a love in flames

Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
Watching in slow motion
As you turn my way and say

Take my breath away

Pretty sure I don’t need to qualify this any more than I already have as to why this is the most representative film of 1986.

So, we’ll just take a trip.

You might be asking where we’re going on this trip.

Some of you may already know.

But it’s a trip we must take.

To the Danger Zone.

Revvin’ up your engine
Listen to her howlin’ roar
Metal under tension
Beggin’ you to touch and goHighway to the Danger Zone
Ride into the Danger Zone

Headin’ into twilight
Spreadin’ out her wings tonight
She got you jumpin’ off the deck
And shovin’ into overdrive

Highway to the Danger Zone
I’ll take you
Right into the Danger Zone

They never say hello to you
Until you get it on the red line overload
You’ll never know what you can do
Until you get it up as high as you can go

Out along the edge
Is always where I burn to be
The further on the edge
The hotter the intensity

Highway to the Danger Zone
I’m gonna take you
Right into the Danger Zone
Highway to the Danger Zone
Right into the Danger Zone
