"This albumn is bittersweet. It reminds me of being a teenager, wishing to go to college, and leaving someone special. Then the feelings of after college and "this is it?" come shining through. I will always treasure David Foster's voice on the last song. A lot of memories come crashing back. You remeber when love was innocent, "for just a moment.""
St. Elmo's Fire...

"First let me state that I really, really like this soundtrack. My favorite song is "If I turn you away" with Vicky Moss. My major gripe is that Ms. Moss sounds like she's singing two city blocks away from the microphone - it's that bad. It's as if someone was trying to save a buck or two and do the mininum required to put out a song.
Finally, if they remaster this disk, I'll gladly pay top dollar for it! Five stars for material, three stars for the disc!"
"If you like the works of David Foster, then you should buy this compilation of his fine work. The instrumental songs are great to listen to when you're in a romantic mood (and even when you're trying to have a slow dance with your loved one..) About some of the songs in that album..John Parr has that cool and 'husky' voice that really suits the mood for the message of "Man in Motion"-particularly to show the kind of spirit Emilio Estevez had (in the movie) when he tried to win Andie McDowell's heart (who played a nurse, I think) "Georgetown" conveys the feeling of loneliness and 'campus homesickness' as Rob Lowe (in the movie) went back to his old campus and tried to mingle with the newer students by playing football- only to discover that they glorified his comeback by reminding him about his past. Finally, if you're a single guy, then try to play the instrumental song of "St. Elmo's Fire" or the song called "Young and Innocent" on piano or guitar..they can take the breath away of whoever girls you're trying to impress!..believe me, I've tried it and IT WORKS!.."

"Why did I give this soundtrack 5 stars? Because I am nostalgic for the 1980s, that and Queen and LIVE AID, brings it all back to when life seemed simple but the world around was heading toward the future at a rapid pace. This music inspired me to try to come up with my own "Wonder Years" of sorts but based in the 1980s in a small middle school in Maine with lots of references to the music and events of the time. I call it "My Fifth Street Years," I hope to write the Pilot Episode in a few years time... Until then, if you miss the 1980s like I do, check out TV LAND and LIVE AID and this and other 1980s CDs.... After all, the CD came out in 1981, the ancestor of the Blu-Ray disc of today....
Classic David Foster Soundtrack

"Even if you didn't care for the movie this is a much for those who love AOR-melodic style soundtracks. From John Parr's rocking "Man in Motion" to the famed David Foster Love Theme, it's got everything even a track by Airplay the band Jay Graydon and David Foster founded with Tommy Funderburk in 1980 but released only one album which has become something of a masterpiece. Here they are joined by Peter Beckett of Player with backing vocals by Mr.Mister's Richard Page (the song is co-written by Beckett wth Graydon and Steve Kipner) There is even a vocal version of "Love Theme" with Amy Holland and Donny Gerrald of Skylark."
