Cheap Trick – “Mighty Wings” (1986) – 7″ Single (The Cheap Trick Collection Series – Bonus Edition)

The movie was ‘Top Gun’ and would blow up the silverscreen and was a massive hit. What also was a massive hit was the soundtrack to that movie. What a line-up of who was big in the 80’s. You get Kenny Loggins, Loverboy, Berlin, Miami Sound Machine and Teena Marie to name most of the artist.

Cheap Trick were asked to do the song “Might Wings” which was written by Mark Spiro and Harold Faltermeyer who also produced the soundtrack. The song was the third single off the soundtrack and the only one to not chart which is a big surprise to me as it was my favorite song on the soundtrack. The song appeared in the movie twice.

I can’t believe we are already in to May. Time is flying by. This week this is a lot and there isn’t.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

I am giving this a try strictly out of curiosity.
  • 71VY-vuhmIL._SX522_  Nancy Wilson – You and Me – (Carry On Music): I am excited to hear Nancy Wilson’s new solo album.

Their are 8 original tracks and four covers and some great guests including Sammy Hagar, Duff McKagan and Taylor Hawkins. We also get a song that is a tribute to Eddie Van Halen called “4 Edward”. I’m expected a good time to be had by all.
