Music Review: Footloose Soundtrack
Footloose is a movie about wanting to dance. It presents a high school where dancing has been outlawed, and what happens when new blood moves in, with different rules. The movie soundtrack is an eclectic collection, with a few classics. Kenny Loggins "Footloose" is one of the most popular and really carries the entire show. Loggins also sings "I'm Free (Heaven Helps the Man)." "Lets Hear it for the Boy" by Deniece Williams is very nice. Holding Out for a Hero by Bonnie Tyler is in a similar vein. Another highlight is "Waiting for a Girl Like You" by Foreigner. This is a song you can listen to over and over and still be entranced. There is a part in the soundtrack that the music gets too hard, but then it comes back to some very enjoyable songs.
