Throwback Thursday is upon us! In honor of my 20th High School reunion happening this weekend…(did I just age myself to all of you anonymous readers?)…I deemed it appropriate to have an 80s flashback and share this song. Many of you will know it and will instantly be transported to your younger high school or college days. The instrumental Love Theme from St. Elmo’s Fire is the timeless symbolic song of friendship. Full of synthesizers (which are again cool nowadays anyway) and a beautiful musical arrangement, David Foster gifted us a song that perfectly captured the emotions of a film about a really close group of college friends coming of age, and facing the realities of life. I hope you will keep this song as part of your permanent music collection. For the sake of nostalgia, it deserves its legacy. It was the first song that played during my wedding ceremony and I watched my Maid of Honor fight back tears the second it started. It is also the first song I learned to play on the piano…but I digress.
If you are a younger listener and have yet to watch the movie, or listen to this theme, well, here is your chance. Invite your friends over for a “retro” film night and have a screening of this movie. The movie was released in 1985 and FYI, it features a very young Demi Moore in her film debut!
Come to think of it, I think I will take that advice and invite some people over for a Back To More Cowbell backyard screening under the stars and smores night! Any takers?
What does this song make you think of when you hear it? Any special memories?
