'Top Gun' is one of our favorite films, and Harold Faltermeyer's score with the iconic 'Danger Zone' by Kenny Loggins is quite possibly one of the best intros ever put on 35mm film. Directed by the late Tony Scott, the film grossed over $356 million against a production budget of only $15 million, and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for 'Take My Breath Away' performed by Berlin. Enjoy this throwback to the 80s!
