Is This The Greatest Soundtrack Of All Time?

Short answer, no but it does come quite close in my estimation. A Twitter conversation centered on awesome movie car chases inevitably lead me to one of my Top 10 favourite films evah. Sure, there may be better car chase sequences than the opening scene of Beverly Hills Cop but do they have The Pointer Sisters playing in the background? Exactly.



The problem with reminding yourself of great movie moments when you work at home is that you're definately going to end up spending about an hour messing about on YouTube and that's exactly what I did. Only about 20 minutes in did I realise that the entire BHC soundtrack is full of chessy 80s gems that are perfectly matched to their respective scenes. Along with the cigerette truck chase we have Axel arriving in Beverly Hills...



We have the perfect song filled with an appropriate amount sexual innuendo for Axel in a strip club...



And we can't forget the horrendously overplayed theme tune that is the perfect accompaniment for putting a banana in a tailpipe...



I think that scene is funnier and more interesting than the actual song but if you need your fix, here's Peter Griffin dancing to it...



You're welcome.
